I started my "return to yoga" journey on April 1st. What started out as a frustration with my lack of flexibility, that I always had, has grown into quite something much greater than flexibility. They say it takes 30 days to make or break a habit. Now that I am into day 17, I feel a habit has already developed. I have never enjoyed working out, always thought of it as a chore, something I had to do. Now, 17 days in, I can say I enjoy my yoga sessions and look forward to them. Here is a look at my first 2 weeks.
