For the month of April, I have decided to take on “The Blissology Project.” This is a 4 week commitment to yoga, meditation, food awareness, gratitude, and a wild card that is a task to do that will change every week. I have downloaded the full daily yoga routines from the Blissology website and started with the “Weekend Metaphysical Yoga” routine today. I have decided that one day of meditation yoga is enough for me.
I have been practising yoga before the “Eat, Pray, Love” craze but I haven’t been one to do meditation. After reading the novel and watching the movie, I have grown into an appreciation for meditating. Although, I have never really given it shot. Unless lying on the mat at the end of my yoga practice is mediating, then yes, I have done it and love it.
I found The Blissology Project while shopping at Lululemon. The 6 disc DVD has 6 routines by the surfer and yogi Eion Finn that targets different parts of the body for each day:
I have done Eoin’s “Power Yoga For Happiness One” and loved it but doing the same routines over and over can get extremely boring. But what I really like about the blissology project, is that it has a different workout for 6 days a week so it will be harder to get bored.
Stretching is also key for preventing injury and stretching muscles that usually don’t get stretched is a great way to become more flexible.
I’m pretty excited about this month’s challenge, I’m not even April fooling you!
