The Yoga Soul(s) is back.

I haven’t bloggid for a loong time. I think I get inspired to bloggi when I do yoga. My mind starts to think about all the ins & outs about both the world, my surroundings and myself. For the past weeks I have grown a lot & the heaviness have made me even dread taking a walk around Diamond Head – so my yoga practice have suffered. I converted my Ashtanga practice to a weekly prenatal practice. And have kept up with my instagram pictures but not as fully as I would have wanted to.

Now it is only 8 weeks left until Peanut is scheduled to arrive out of living his belly life. And yes, I am not sure if I mentioned but it is a little yogi boy in there. I think he is enjoying his belly life in there. I get to feel both his arms, legs & head move around on a daily basis. Even though he is in the belly I never imagined the love I have for this little bundle of joy.

Here is a update of the latest & greatest picture I took for my IG yoga account, which shows Peanut. And in a few days I am starting a prenatal yoga challenge for all mom’s-to-be who are on IG to join. And I decided since I haven’t bloggid for a long time – I will also add the challenge to this blog, which will show a daily prenatal yoga pose with some inspirational words & directions.

Namaste to you all & I look forward blogging again!

Day 8 – Ashtanga Friday.

Today it’s beautiful Aloha Friday! And I am going to go & see if I still can last through my favorite Ashtanga class with Yoko. I went to another yoga class in the beginning of this week and didn’t enjoy it at all. Being pregnant I do not enjoy spending too much time doing core moves & I don’t enjoy the belly hanging too much for some reason – in the last class my belly looked like a cone and I got the regular worry that something was wrong with my belly & Peanut {might be a common hypochondria symptom of pregnant women bearing their first child}. So when I was done with class I was done with the teacher….never looking back to that yoga class during my pregnancy. So keep your finger that I still have the energy & ability to continue with doing Ashtanga instead. Some women are able to go through the class throughout their pregnancy & some don’t. Let’s see in what category I will fall into.

Saturday update to come about my Ashtanga progress.

Day 14 out of Infinity – A Moment of Sunday Chai.

So, since I started having a #Chai tea craving – I decided to fix the solution of cost. I am now working on getting the most tastiest Chai tea to replace my Starbucks Chai tea addiction since it cost an arm and a leg to buy it.

On top of it – the other day I read from another blogger Lisa BeWell who is blogging about her food-stamp challenge that the average person who benefits from food stamps get about $4 of stamp per day – an average of $28 to $30 a week. Right when I read it I had just bought my Chai tea from Starbucks. I had just sipped up a person’s daily food supply in 30 minutes, which made me feel horrible.

So today – we actually got some rain on the little island of Oahu and I made some tea myself & it tasted delicious – almost the same as Starbucks. Plus my Bikram practice today was excellent – I do believe that the practice have a lot to do with the teacher you have – and today the teacher and the tea was excellent!

A Moment of #Chai.

Had to share – Yoko taught me the right form in the head stand the other day – so now I got my head stand going!! It’s all about the bandha.
