I'm Marie. Wife, mother, and yogi. Bikram yoga lover. Hot yoga teacher.

This is a glimpse of my life, my loves, and my inspiration.

Day 22 of the April Intentions yoga challenge: The posture is Eagle Pose (Garurasana) and my intention is to take action. 
I have lots of little things to do today that procrastination has postponed. 
Time to fly.

My yoga teacher took this photo after class today to share as a ‘post thirty day challenge’ backbend.
I’m so lucky to have supportive instructors at my bikram studio!

Reclining Compass was the posture for Day 21 of the April Intentions yoga challenge. My intention was to be courageous.
I had never done this variation of Compass Pose so I spent a lot of time working on other hip openers before I attempted the asana. But, once I felt prepared and ready to brave it, I was pleasantly surprised. It’s an enjoyable opening that offers some challenges with balance as well. I like it. 
And, once again, it fit perfectly with my Monday. I’m in need of courage, balance, and the ability to stretch just a bit more than I think I can. 
I’m hoping for more pleasant surprises.

More core work for the Yoga to the Core challenge. Day 21 was Urdhva Navasana or as Kino likes to call it “harder-than-Navasana.” It’s a nice exercise to strengthen your Boat Pose.

Low Lunge (Anjaneyasana) for Day 20 of the April Intentions yoga challenge.
To be perfectly honest, I didn’t set any intentions, I just did a little yoga this morning to help get me going. I really only intend to do one thing today: Have lots of chocolate. 
You know what they say… You are what you eat!
