My First Yoga Mat

April 26th, 2007 · 2 Comments

So I bought a couple of yoga mats today. I bought the one shown in the picture here, as well as a thinner travel mat. I figured, if I am going to do my yoga right, I might as well get the mats. Also, I have noticed that when I spend even a little money on accessories for an activity, I tend to be more interested in doing the activity.

But this only works for the first week or so. After that, I generally tend to continue doing the thing because it becomes a habit-sort of. I hope yoga can fix my sinus issue, and the darned upper shoulder pain. The only issue I have with yoga is that it is so darn slow – it does require a lot of concentration. I used to wonder why people say it improves your mental faculties, but now I can see how this could happen. I hope I keep up with what I started. The simple yoga steps I know now should keep me going for a month at the very least – I hope that by the end of that time, my legs will get used to sitting in the new, kind of awkward position!
