As an avid runner and cardio junkie, I never saw myself as a yoga person. After all, I could very likely win an award for the most inflexible person in the world, thanks to my tighter than tight hamstrings. I’ve totally neglected stretching for about 10 years. I’m not kidding!
Still, the past few months of stress got me thinking about the need for change and new challenges. I joined a yoga studio about a month ago, and am now loving every humbling session.
Today, I’m delighted to share my thoughts on this new journey at one of my favorite blogs – The Fierce Diva Guide to Life. Ilene, the site’s creator, describes herself as “a yoga teacher, writer, single mom, runner, lover of eyeliner, incense, and skullcaps, believer in possibilities, and highly flawed individual.”
I absolutely adore her beautiful and honest posts on all things life, and her words have often brought me inspiration, solace and joy. She’s humorous and kind and wise, and a girlfriend I wish lived much closer – Ilene is on the East Coast.
