    20 Minute Late for Work Yoga

    Ancient Wisdom for the Modern Gal

      I woke up this morning craving something.  I could envision my body stretching, moving, and begging me to get on my yoga mat.  I looked at my watch, my first thought was, and do I really have time today?  And immediately my mind tried to talk me out of doing my practice, telling me no time! No time!  Well 20 minutes really isn't that much time, right?   Sticking with a practice or routine is hard.   Our culture glorifies being busy, and I personally find it difficult to take even an hour for myself. I spend at least 20 minutes a day checking my email, facebook, etc maybe instead I could spend 20 minutes doing something nice for myself?   I started practicing yoga when I was in high school.  Where I went to school yoga journaling counted as a PE credit. So, every morning I would start my day peacefully with a fun yoga class.  It was amazing!  Instantly I noticed that I had more energy, (I felt like I could run everywhere I really don't like running), I was less depressed and studying became easier.  My high school self had it right, she knew what I needed!   It wasn't until a few years ago that I was reintroduced to yoga, and rediscovered my love.  I found out about Lady Niguma Yoga, an Indian woman Yogi taught this practice over a thousand years ago (the Knowledge Base).  I feel it's a practice that most everyone can do! Even better on busy days it can be abbreviated and still you get amazing results.   I can tell the difference between days when I do yoga and days that I don't.  I even did yoga when I was sick, just to get my lymphatic system moving.  When I do yoga my days tend to be better, go smoother, and I find it easier to finish projects.  I find that I am more patient and less stressed (not to mention a little more toned).  Give yourself 20 minutes; it will make a huge difference in your day.   I even found a video of a 20 minute Lady Niguma Yoga Class on Youtube! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VQPyJzCT78       special thank you to Adam Andrade for the photos
