Wannabe Yogi

I'm very fond of calling myself a 'wannabe'.  I have a nice little list.  Wanna hear it?!  Here it goes:

Wannabe photographer

Wannabe oenophile

Wannabe foodie 

Wannabe writer
(hopefully you don't need help visualizing this one, friends)

And, most recently, a wannabe yogi.  I know I must be on everyone's nerves with all of my yoga talk.  Sharing poses.  Sharing positive mantras.  But I'm sort of a yoga-geek at the moment!

What great yoga hair!

In my very first blog I mentioned that I'd like to go to counseling...to pay someone to listen to me bitch.  However, I think that I have found my 'inner' counseling in yoga.  I love the spiritual lift it gives me.  I love how it reminds me of what is important in my life and what is so unimportant.  I love that I can almost do the splits again!  I'm like...THIS CLOSE!

Marilyn...always inspiring to me

My dilemma lately has been with exploring different forms of yoga.  I'm really missing Bikram.  I think what I like about the "torture chamber" of Bikram is knowing what comes next.  I know that Pranayama Deep Breathing is always first, I know that Half Moon Pose comes next, so on and so forth.  I'm finding that in other forms of yoga I'm always looking around trying to figure out what this new/next posture is.  Maybe it just comes down to practice.  I'm sure I'll get it figured out.

I want to look this good doing yoga!!

I look forward to 'mastering' wall yoga, Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar, etc.  However, at this moment my heart lies with Bikram.  I look forward to getting back to a Bikram class as soon as my wallet can afford it!

 Until then, Namaste, my friends!

  1. You're becoming very inspiring. Too bad your mom isn't quite there yet. Keep it up/

  2. You are doing great!! I can't tell you the last time I was on a bicycle! Maybe you'll get to 4 miles today! :0) Love you!

  3. Hey, Brittany! To be honest, I was also a wannabe before I became the Yogi that I am. :D I think everyone has had this moment. And it lies in your hands how you’re going to make things real. Just remember this always: live out yoga for health, inner peace, or enlightenment. ;]
