The view from my yoga mat

I used to be an avid yoga enthusiast. I even did prenatal yoga quite regularly when I was expecting. And then I had a baby. Who didn’t sleep for the first 10 months.

Now that Little One’s just over a year old and sleeping well, I’m slowly getting back into my yoga routine. One of the things I missed was how great yoga made me feel—especially during busy weeks when I logged a lot of computer time. A regular yoga/stretching routine even helped me bounce back from a case of wrist tendinitis, so I can’t sing its praises enough.

The benefits of yoga for a busy biz mama

  1. It melts away the day’s stress—and pulls back my (computer-induced) hunched over shoulders
  2. It allows me one glorious hour to myself, where I don’t have to worry about anyone being fed, changed or walked
  3. It clears my mind of any work tasks and prepares me for the weekend with my family

I’ve been taking outdoor yoga classes in a park near my office, so it has the added benefit of spending an hour in fresh air and sunshine. Friday can’t come soon enough!

    I know we never got to take an outdoor class together when you were here. Hope you found a great class in SF!

    Not yet but it’s on my list. We found a yoga studio a couple blocks from our place which we really like so that is a bonus. This studio also offers aerial yoga classes which sound intriguing.
