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!

    I love TITIPIB! We did Friendsgiving this weekend and it was awesome. So much fun, we look forward to it every year! (Headstand…um ow?).

    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!)
