getting me through Monday: meditation, headstands & breakdancing

GOOD MONDAY TO YOU CLEVELAND! I’ve been looking forward to this week: new opportunities are abound, a girls night is on the calendar, the hubby turns the big 3-0 and our annual T.I.T.I.P.I.B. (Thanksgiving with our closest friends) is this weekend. So much excitement! To share the good vibes, I’ll share these three videos I’ve recently discovered…

Remember how I said I was ready to practice one minute of meditation at a time? It’s still a practice I keep. Here’s how you can start:

As for the yoga practice, this week as been full of headless handstands. Confused? It’s actually quite simple – It’s great for those with neck or back issues and extremely therapeutic:

Cora Wen (the instructor in the video) is coming to Nishkama Yoga in December – I can’t wait to meet her!

Finally, take a few moments to watch this awesomeness in breakdancing form. I’ve been jamming to the song all week:

So strong. Only if I had that upper arm and core strength!

On a side note, I can’t thank you all enough for all the encouragement you shared on my last post.  I’ve still got a long way to go, but I’ve already come a long way in the process. Thanks for allowing me to put it all out there. Let’s see where this crazy life takes me!

    I love the idea of headstands, and I’d love to do one… some day. There’s something alluring about them to me. but heck if I didn’t laugh a little when she said ‘Just hop your legs up there’. I am sure that’s easy for some, but I just imagined myself, at my skill right now trying that.. maybe if DH helped me throw my legs up in the air, it’d be doable :)

    Happy Monday! What a great new week you have ahead of you – lots of fun stuff planned!

    I went back and read your previous TITIPIB post since I’m a new fan – your Thanksgiving with friends is a great idea! I totally agree that we need to cherish our friends as much as our family – after all, our friends actually CHOOSE to love us! :) And a girls night is ALWAYS something to be thankful for – I’m in desperate need myself! Hanging with the ladies is always good for the soul.

    And last but not least, Happy Birthday Hans! I hope that the celebration marks the beginning of a fabulous new decade!

    Agree with my sis on this one (shocker, as usual) — friendsgiving is SUCH a fun time and honestly? It’s almost more fun for me than the real holiday. The friends we celebrate with are like my family and I love them all dearly! (also happy early bday to Hans!)
