Lay out…Take 5!

Leave a comment

When was the last time you laid outside on the ground and stared up at the sky?.

This is something I brought up recently in my yoga class. As we did yoga outside and laid in corpse pose for the end of our session I couldn’t help but think….WHO does this anymore?


Who completely allows their body to relax and take in the sights, sounds, smells, sensations of what’s around you?


Who stares up at he clouds and watches them

float by. 


I know I don’t usually take the time to do that. BUT every time I do with my Yoga class. I realize how I SHOULD be doing this more often EVEN IF IT’S JUST 5 minutes!! 


I also recently had this discussion with some friends while running too. They brought it up and I thought WOW have they been mind tapping me LOL.

We talked of how when we were younger, less distracted, no adulting required, it was something you just did with friends, laid out…found shapes in the clouds. 


HERE’S something too…Who can totally separate their thoughts, to-dos, racing mind, and RELAX? That is tough!


One thing I remind my yogis of, as they drift into a deep relaxed state, is to clear the mind and to let any thoughts that pop into their mind to “drift by like the clouds in the sky”


Tomorrow TRY it!! #Ichallengeyou #take5


Take 5 minutes and lay out and just breath…don’t worry about what you’ve done for the day or need to do BUT FOCUS on yourself and those few “stop everything”

minutes. It’s really rejuvenating. Don’t feel funny about it. Just #tryit!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
