As the semester is coming to an end, my learning project also concludes. I have had so much fun and good laughs attempting to do challenging yoga poses, and my health has also benefitted from it these last seven weeks. I do not plan on stopping here, however. Not only has this project improved my endurance and flexibility, but it has also helped me handle stress.
If you recall back to my very first #learningproject post, my trusty partner Brooke listed off some yoga poses and I had to come up with my own interpretation of what I thought they meant. Here is the video.
I thought it would be fun to go back and do the actual poses, so here goes nothin!
This first pose is called reclining hero pose. I definitely felt the stretch in my thighs! I actually stayed in this pose for quite some time and I felt so good after!
This is called locust pose. This pose looks simple, but it was actually quite difficult. As I’ve mentioned before, I have a bad back and this pose did not feel the greatest.. but I did it anyways and I think I did pretty good!
There were a couple of poses from the video that I did not try because they were either too hard or I had previously done them.
I am very glad that I chose to do yoga for my learning project. As I have mentioned time and time again, I struggle in dealing with stress and am always finding ways to help manage it. Luckily, doing yoga helps! Throughout this project I have learned that I do not need to do hours of yoga a day in order to see progress. In fact, I found that just doing 5-10 minutes a day did wonders!
My yoga journey does not stop here. I plan to keep mastering the poses that I have demonstrated throughout this project and aspire to keep learning new ones.
If anyone one is wondering what Bodhi Tree is, it is a well known yoga studio in Regina. My title is 100% a joke by the way….
