Yoga

Astavakrasana Eight Angle Pose

Love love love arm balances! Great for the core, upper body, and mind.

As much as I love jumping and sweating and lifting weights, I know that yoga is the best form of exercise for my body, especially in the long term.  Yoga strengthens not only my body, but also my mind, teaching me to be calm in all situations, teaching me to try my best and believe in the impossible, and teaching me determination and acceptance especially when I struggle or fail.

Yoga Dance to “Amazing Grace” by Chris Tomlin

(Click here to see the original blog post)

Note: I chose this song because so many times after introducing myself as a little girl, someone would say, “Oh like Amazing Grace?” and they would start singing. It has a special place in my heart because I’ve known the lyrics for so long, but didn’t really understand the meaning behind the words until 20 years later. I am far far far from “amazing,” but I do appreciate and am grateful for God’s wonderful and amazing graces in my life – giving me second, third, hundred chances, loving me when I didn’t love myself, helping me find a purposeful life, and guiding me day by day. This routine is a blend of everything I love: yoga, dance, choreography, music, and God. Thanks for watching!
