Good evening, dear friends 😀
I have just returned from my first yoga session after many years, and I must say that I am feeling really great right now – invigorated, energised and best of all, wonderfully relaxed. 😀 The last time I took yoga classes was way back in 1991 after I had given birth to my second daughter and had put on a lot of weight. Despite me taking yoga lessons for only one month before I was posted to another city in my job, I had very quickly trimmed down my figure and became slim again. Everyone that I met commented that I had lost weight so fast! 🙄 I remember that my former yoga instructor was a 60 year old grandmother, whose figure was like that of a svelte and trim 18 year old’s!! 😯 Wow! How I wish my figure was like that! 😆
Anyway, I found out from one of my friends that there was a centre nearby offering weekly 1-hour yoga lessons for free and I was game to try yoga again to slim down….as I have put on quite a lot of weight these few years, with cooking for my family! 🙄 So, I got 2 of my children to come along and we had a wonderful time practising the various exercise poses and important breathing techniques.
Some of the breathing exercises were for cleansing our lungs, energising ourselves by activation the inner chi/energy (we felt our “insides” getting warm, even hot!) , to strengthen various parts of our spine, and there was even one technique to help us clear our intestines (bowels) properly, i.e. a good breathing exercise for those who tend to constipates. I will post the instructions for these exercises later. It is almost midnight now and I am looking forward to a good and relaxed sleep tonight after my yoga exercise! 😀
Good night and sweet dreams from KL! 😀
