The Music of My Life

YAY!!  We've made it to DAY 4!!!  It's literally half way through our first week!!  I can honestly say, my outward appearance and attitude is a whole lot different than I feel inside with this challenge...haha!  I put up a good front that I'm doing GREAT!  The fact is, no sugar is hard!  I find I'm not eating as much b/c I'm trying not to snack.  There's a lot more water intake, which I'm sure is great for me, but I am really missing sugar!  If I liked honey I would be living on it this week!

So this blog I've decided is about music and yoga. 

I love music.  All types, all the time.  I love it playing in the background.  I find I'm more efficient in my day if there is music to lift my spirit as I work.

Twice a week I enjoy Emilie's Hot Fusion class at my Moksha studio.  There is soothing music playing during the class.  I find the class so much more enjoyable with the music playing.  I find myself sinking into the soft sounds while focusing on my breathing. 

Every now and then an instructor will play a song at the end of a regular 60 minute class.  It's usually something soft, like Bob Marley.  It's a great way to keep me on the mat.  I'm one of those yogi who cannot stay in savasana at the end of class, due to outside commitments, but I find when there is a song playing, I'm getting my "me" time at the end of class without having to rush out

...something about the music keeps me in place on my mat .... and in I sink.
