Today is my two-year “yogaversary.” It’s been two years since the day I decided to use the extra 15 minutes I had each morning during summer school to start a yoga practice. I figured I could build a habit during the month of June, continue in July during my vacation and then it would be ingrained enough to get me up 15 minutes earlier in August when my regular school schedule resumed. The plan worked.

In two years my yoga journey has taken me many places as my life has changed drastically. To a place of relaxation and release. To a place of added flexibility, strength and balance. To create a dedicated peaceful place in my home. To literal places I’d never been before like beautiful Costa Rica. To places where I’ve met new friends, both real-time and online.

All of these places were not on my radar the day I decided to dedicate 15 minutes a day to myself and my wellness. So, in reflection, I realize that today I have no idea where this journey will take me next. I’m not even going to try to imagine. I’m just going to breathe and enjoy today.

  1. Hi, Addie. I feel an increasing need to strengthen my body and increase my flexibility. What videos or resources would you suggest to get started? I have a mat that I stretch and “move about” on about every other night for ten minutes or so. But that’s not enough and I’d like to do more. Happy Yogaversary!
