Y is for Yoga


Y is for Yoga

I took yoga some years ago. It's a relaxing process that brings mind, body, and spirit together. A consistent yoga regimen yields youthful energy and leaves one looking and feeling younger. I think I need to resume yoga.

The lotus flower is a symbol of peace and enlightenment. One that many yogis assume before meditation, the Lotus Pose is classic and considered an advanced pose. I never mastered this one. The best I could do was a modified version much like the golden frog. LOL

  1. I saw the title of your post and for a minute thought I had lost a day or two ;)! It is Tuesday, right???

    I used to do yoga ... well, I should say I "attempted" to do yoga (at home where no one could see my sad attempts at some of those poses).

    Now I'm wondering what that lady's name was that I used to watch and attempt to follow along with ... Lilias or something like that I think ... my that was a few years ago, though.

    Blessings,
    Catherine

  2. Oh, what a silly little frog! But he does look relaxed! I've never done yoga but my daughter has and just loves it.
    Hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. He's cute. Is he in your garden, Sarah?

    It hurts me to even THINK about getting into that position. It hurts me to think of getting on the floor! So much for yoga! ;-)

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

    I love that little frog!

  7. First off....I LOVE the frog! Really!! LOVE IT!

    I want to start yoga...I need that peace...but also I need to be more limber and be able to stretch. I am so stiff anymore!

  9. Good Morning Sarah,

    Your little gold yoga frog has it going on!! You know, I watch that Namaste Yoga on FIT TV..something about it makes me wish I could do it! It does have and heir of relaxation about it, just watching it. My bones wouldn't ever let me get into some of those positions..LOL

    Thanks for stopping by this morning! I've been really busy the past few months but try to catch up on my blogging whenever I can.

    Have a great week!

  14. I often think about yoga and how good it would be for me but never seem to follow through! I love that frog.

  15. Your golden frog made me laugh out loud~ his yoga pose is WAY more accomplished than mine :-)

  16. I've just never mustered the courage to attempt this. Some of the positions remind me of pretzels, and I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to "untwist"! Love the kermit yogi - how adorable. Kat

  17. I would love to be able to do yoga, but I don't think I would ever be able to get into those pretzel poses.

  19. what a cute golden frog! and a wonderful Y post!

  20. I never got into yoga. I had no idea the lotus position was an advanced pose. That's how I sit when I'm on the floor. Maybe I'm a natural and should give yoga a try!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I wondered if someone would do "yoga" this week. I love the golden kermit.

  25. Yoga seems to be a wonderful way to improve your body. I really want to try yoga because I am not very flexible but since I have a new knee, I can't put weight on it and am afaid that i would not be able to "do" the positions. I plan to try it out in a modified way.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I could benefit from Yoga too. Love the adorable frog.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I did not know that frogs do Yoga ;-) Great choice for your "Y"...Namaste

  28. I do Yogurt, but not Yoga. Do you say hmmmmmmm as you meditate?
    I say Yummmmmmm as I masticate! LOL
    What a great little frog!
    I am sorry I have been MIA, the family left today so I can catch up a bit!
    All is well, just busy! But summer goes very quickly, and then I don't see them as much!

  29. you had me at the picture of the frog! This post was cute and funny! I don't do yoga but I might be inspired if I had a golden frog near by!

  30. Love the frog he is gorgeous.
    I've tried yoga at home but somehow it's not for me, perhaps a class would be better?

  31. Ouch! Ooooh! Creak! Grind! Click! No, it's no good. I can't even get comfortable in the modified frog version :(

  32. love the frog...it put a great big smile on my face!

    ReplyDelete
  33. oh for the days of being able to do that again!

  34. One of my friends and I were just discussing attempting yoga. They have these classes where they make the room really hot but we're going to pass on those. I suspect they might not be great for menopausal ladies. ha!

    This was a great stop through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "Y".

    I always enjoy visiting here! It makes me say Yipee!

    A+

  35. For years I've wanted to take a yoga class but I haven't. I'm really going to have to make the effort to try it. It seems like some a peaceful thing.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh, Sarah! This is so cute! I have never tried yoga. I think I'm too old now! lol My legs will not get into those positions and I can't let another human being see me attempt to get up off the floor...not a pretty picture! I hope you are having a great weekend!...hugs...Debbie

    ReplyDelete
  37. You & I both tried yoga for a time...sure wish I'd stuck with it!

    ♥ your funny froggy statue!

    I can't imagine WHAT you're going to come up with for the letter "Z"...zippers?? zebras??? ZERO...as in a completely blank post??? LOL
    Good Luck with the last letter in this fun meme! I've enjoyed watching over your shoulder & learning along the way.

    fondly,
    Rett

  38. Yoga is not my thing but I heart frogs and that picture of the yoga doing frog is great!

  39. I'm home again after a very hot vacation......and of course returned to stifling heat here along with a fried garden! Everything looks so sad other than the tomatoes which, thankfully, were watered for us while gone.

    I should be doing yoga too.....all this vacation eating is getting to me.....altho' I have to admit healthy, fresh African food took off a few pounds so I must head back over there again, ha! ha!

    Hope all is well dear - Mary.
