Monday Yoga on my Dirty Mat || mstafford yoga session -- 15 days ago

Monday lunchtime yoga w/ @otterside media and Timbo-slice from work. A nice practice today -- lots of time spent in various "Warrior" postures, building strength in the legs and core. Some balance effort today, and I def felt a bit wobbly. Though, I feel like the stretching and focus on some leg...

Stretching into April || mstafford yoga session -- 22 days ago

Lunchtime yoga at the YMCA is rapidly turning into my favorite part about Mondays. Todays class was a bit more difficult, with some focus oncore strength in the first half. Lots of spinal twists this session too, which really woke my back up nicely after a weekend on a not so great matress in a c...

YMCA - Lunchtime Yoga || mstafford yoga session -- a month ago

Lunchtime yoga session at the downtown Victoria YMCA. Free drop-in class if you have a membership, so I was skeptical about what the class would be like. Actually really enjoyed it -- wqs good to br in a group setting again instead of just following a video. I feel like you get some kind of energ...

Hotel Yoga || mstafford yoga session -- a month ago

Spending the next few mights in a hotel for a work related course. Trying to make the best of it, but it's always a bit difficult. It's a bit chillier over here in Edmonton, but it's a beautiful blue-sky day, which is a nicw change of pace. A short 15 minute stretch, working through some sun salu...

Morning by my Simulated Fire || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

Short, self led practice this morning. I woke up feeling pretty tight in my spine, which isn't unusual for myself. Especially considering that the dogs believe it's okay to sleep on top of me because they're sneaky enough to not wake me up. Regardless of the cause of the tightness, the stretch fe...

25 Minute Home Practice || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

Nice freestyle / self guided session at home. Feelin the flow with @caitycat and the #wolfpack! Slept rewlally hard last night after a long day -- which typically means my back is tigjt in the morning. Started this practice off with some gentle back twists and moving around through cat/cow to wak...

Snowwy Stretch by the Fire || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

Trying to start my week out strong. Wome up early and got on the yoga mat for a morning stretch. Self led practice -- mostly just trying to work out the various aches and tightness that I get from sleeping (I usually sleep very still, and wake up with a tight back). Got my smoothie and a jar of c...

Self Guided Morning || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

Putting some effort into going to bed and waking up earlier than usual. I'm pretty bad for staying up late and then being tired all day. This was my first self led session since finishing up my 30day crash course. Felt pretty good, but it's difficult to stretch first thing in the morning, which p...

My 30 Day Journey Has Concluded || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

Today concludes the final day of the 30 Day Yoga Journey (led by Adriene Michler of Yoga with Adriene on YouTube). I gotta say, I didn't make it all the way to the end the last time I participated -- and I wasn't sure what to expect. With that said, I really enjoyed that the final session was sel...

Session 28 - "Dedicate" || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

This is the 2nd half of the back-to-back yoga practices I did yesterday. Hard to talk it up into something huge -- it was only an additional 20 minutes. I was joined by @caitycat and the pups for this session, as you can see in the image. It's not always sunshine and rainbows trying to stretch with ...

Session 27 - Power || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

I took a night off of yoga, because I tweaked my neck and needed a day of rest. Feeling much better today. This practice was good, and wasn't necessarily about being physically powerful. More like listening to your body and understanding how to use whatever power you yourself have. Challenged mys...

Pretzel Power || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

This should have happened yesterday -- but it didn't. So I did it today. Despite being a day late -- this was a good practice. I was pretty tuckered out yesterday after running, so I"m glad I got to take it easy afterwards. Not that this session was difficult -- though it had some moments. Some g...

Day (Session) 25 -- Alive || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

Don’t be fooled by this short session. You know what? That's great. That's exactly what I needed. I just spent the last two days ef...

Day 24 - (Lack of) Balance || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

This should have been Friday evenings yoga session -- but I ended up staying late at work and socializing with people, so I missed doing it then. I actually did this yesterday (Saturday) afternoon after going for a hike. I was wigglin' and wobblin' all over the place. It probably didn't help matt...

Yoga Day 23 - Running / Squash Recovery || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

Day 23! One more week to go, and then I'm at the finish line. Exciting to think about -- but it has actually been pretty easy (save for a few unscheduled visits to the pub) to commit to a daily practice. I went running earlier today, and felt pretty strong the whole time -- and I think it has a lot ...

Day 21 -- A day late || mstafford yoga session -- 2 months ago

Another day following along with Adriene! I skipped yesterday, because I was full on tunnel-mode working on some charts / graphs and stuff last night -- so it was nice to get back on the mat today. @caitycat joined me on this one as well, so it was nice to have a buddy! Great forward folds and...
