I have long understood, intellectually, that the water I drink during practice does me little good. If I am improperly hydrated when I show up for class, pounding a quart of water will not save me. Yet, I cling to that water bottle as if my life in that 90 minutes depended on it. But now, I leave my water bottle outside the studio. The result? A new feeling of invigoration.
As I write, I’m on the way home Sunday morning on the Acela train, after an all day immersion yesterday in New York City with Baron Baptiste. It was an amazing experience. There’s one aspect of the day that I found remarkable and quite helpful, at least to me on my own yoga journey, and it is one of my main takeaways from the experience.
I enjoy sharing with friends my dietary and lifestyle changes and how they have dramatically impacted my well-being, my weight, and my body composition. I have also begun to make some changes to my fitness routine that I thought might be of interest. I have been seeing good results.
