"Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos--the trees, the clouds, everything."
~Thich Nhat Hanh
This is one of the poses from yesterday that I waited to do until today and Im glad I did. It was fitting considering the weather.

Humble Warrior pose is delicious! It is humbling, opens the heart, and stretches the legs and hips. Its also a balance pose. Its a full body work full of goodness. This is the first time I have done it. After reading about it, I am looking forward to doing it again as I read that there is a tendency to kick the hip out to give you more room and the hips are supposed to be square. I am not sure if I did that or not.
Being a self taught yogi is tricky. It is also lonely at times. I have great online yoga teacher friends however and I do like that I am doing this on my own for now. I want to learn more about he anatomy and correct form. I kinda geek on correct form. I like knowing I have so much to learn. It will keep me busy for the rest of my life!

Another way to combat the gloomy day is to make vlogs and grow things. Here is a video I made today about how to sprout lentils. Kitchen gardens are a lovely all year round project and very easy to maintain.
