I'm Bringin' Yoga Back!

Haha, no really, it's been back for a long time. But not for me.

I started doing yoga a little while back but I had to stop because I didn't have the proper mat. I was using those puzzle-piece floor mats, the ones you can buy for your kids to play on.

Well, as any yoga-doing person knows .. When you're "downward dogging", you need as much tension and support as you can get. And with those puzzle pieces .. Yeah, tension and support aren't happening. What does happen, in fact, is that the puzzle pieces come apart .. And then I'm downward falling and hurting myself in all sorts of places!
I wish my downward dog was this effortless and graceful! in time..!!

So I was finally able to purchase a proper yoga mat with my gift card for Canadian Tire. It's not "lululemon quality" but it is WAY better than I was using before! And it's purple and pretty, which is always nice :)

Although I'm not looking forward to having to break myself in again, I am really anxious to get back to my yoga routine! Flexibility training, prepare to be conquered!!

And yeah, A535 .. We're going to be best pals again. Same time, same places.
