I ran last night.
I am not sure what got into me.
I just decided to start the “Couch to 5k” program.
I am not a runner nor have ever been a runner, but I figure I need to stay healthy and it is the most convenient and inexpensive way for me to get a work out in.
I didn’t even wait till the kids were in bed.
Court got home from the gym at 6:00 and then I left.
(I really hate doing to much in that 2 hours of precious time (8 pm till 10 pm) when the kids are in bed. I like 2 hours of time to reboot and get ready for the next day.)
It was marvelous!
Only 30 minutes, but it was enough time to just decompress.
It was also cleared my mind so much.
Allowed me to reboot my thinking.
I took notice in the things I missed and the activities I wanted to start doing again.
Like teaching yoga.
I want to teach some ‘family’ style classes.
I really want to start a ‘mom and baby’ yoga class in almonte.
I have always thought of starting a mom and baby class, as I love them so much!
When I did them with the girls, I adored the yoga and the time to connect to my babies.
I am also toying with the idea of a 30 minute toddler class
(Court thinks I am crazy but I think it could be good. )
My girls and the two little guys I babysit love when we do our ‘yoga classes’
Obviously there is not as much structure as ‘regular’ yoga class.
It really works out to be a yoga version of ‘circle time’
Introducing kids to the world of yoga and meditation in a fun way that they would respond to.
10 minutes of warming up (songs, jumping, stretching and ‘sillyness’)
10 minutes of yoga poses,
(I like to use stories to create the vinyasa flow for kids. They seem to respond well to it)
and 10 minutes of quiet yoga (kids version of mediation.)
Quiet songs, quiet stories and trying to relax the best a toddler knows how.
Now I have to find out if there is any interest in these classes and go from there.
I would love to get them started this fall 🙂
Oh, how I love feeling challenged, reconnected and excited 🙂
Have a wonderful day!
