11 weeks of yoga and meditation chart update

With a catchy title like that, you know this is going to be an exciting post!  Lol.  I just thought I would fill you in on little things that are kind of big things that have been coming about as a result of showing up really regularly on my yoga mat and also from meditating so much. 

I wrote in a few other posts about the chart on my wall that tracks my daily yoga and meditation with a "Y" and an "M".  I have been teaching or attending about 4 yoga classes and meditating 6 times per week on average for almost three months.  It is all there on the chart on the wall.

In my early twenties, I broke my foot in a fall and it healed well except there was a lot of scar tissue left over.  Because of this, I have used it in a weird way ever since.  My middle three toes on the foot all moved as one toe and would not spread apart.  My big toe would not grab the floor.  It just floated.  The pinky toe did what she could, but she was pretty little to carry all that responsibility.

In this focused yoga practice, my big toe started grabbing the floor and grounding for the first time in my life about a month ago.  And then about a week ago, my three toes that have been stuck together for close to two decades started spreading out. 

I had done yoga a couple of times a week for years and sometimes more than that.  But this is remarkable.  

One of the tenets of yoga is Careful Foot Placement.  The idea is that we build our poses from the bottom up.  Create grounded stability first and then there is freedom.

It feels good to spread out and wiggle and see space between all my toes again.

The fact that same exact slouchy container would possibly not ship one of the best sales message. Don't just outfit possibly not match good in your perfect employment interview meet, isn't going to ship a voice-mail for institution together with techniques. A good narrow briefcase or simply common synthetic leather container might be a more effective solution to do this affair.
