"Life has a way of testing our anchors and tempting us to drift. Nevertheless, if our anchors are correctly placed in the Rock, they will hold—no matter the force of the wind, the strength of the tide, or the height of the waves."

No, I can’t actually do the splits! Headstands maybe, but I’m bound to have a headache and look like a fool. But downward dog, yes, that I actually can do and can I say that I love it! I have always been interested in Pilates but felt like Yoga was a bit too odd. Not that I mind the practice of meditation or  funny words like “namaste”, but I just didn’t think it would be fast enough or do much for me. Buoy, I was wrong! I don’t remember what I was searching for on the internet, but I ended up at Stay-At-Home Yoga and it is one of the best fitness decisions I’ve made both mentally and physically. With one child in school, the other a busy toddler, school pickup and drop off and everything else I do, I felt like there was no time for joining a gym or yoga studio. And if I did, I was pretty confident that I would not relax and actually enjoy the workout.

The best part about virtual yoga classes at Stay-At-Home Yoga is that I don’t worry about an exact time, what I’m wearing, packing up any mats or how much time I have available. I simply decide that day what works for me: a 5 minute break, 3 pose shorts, focusing on a specific pose or an hour long session. It’s all up to ME!

I also enjoy the community of the group with a Facebook group of everyone who is a member. Jennifer, the owner, is very kind and answered all of my questions up front. If you are looking for something that you can do at home that will provide fitness and a mental break, I highly recommend Stay-At-Home Yoga!

So for now, Namaste!
