The opportunity to practice yoga without any distractions is rare and today I had that opportunity. When I got home from work the house was empty and quiet, so seized the moment to practice yoga in peace.
I was able to complete a 30 minute Baron Baptiste DVD without interruption, amazing. I forgot how great it feels to just be able to flow between poses with my breath and have the feeling of total relaxation. Usually I have Abby running in and out of the room, not ideal for the meditative yoga practice I had become accustomed to pre-Abby.
I’m sure that it will be quite awhile before I have an opportunity like this again, but that is okay too. As much as I love being alone every once in awhile, I love the chaos that is defined by having a two year old more. The benefits of being with my family, interruptions and all, far outweigh the benefits of a completely peaceful yoga practice.
