YouTube Yoga Novice

My body, mind, and spirit need yoga. However, my insecurities and anxiety fight tooth and nail to convince me otherwise. 

Thanks to YouTube and phenomenal folks like Adriene, tackling this daunting new habit can be done in the privacy of my own home.

I started with the video for beginners posted below, and I stuck with it for a full 20 minutes. My shoulders are sore and my legs feel a bit wobbly, but I'm glad I took the first step. Day one is done. Because I was born with limited athletic abilities, I'm going to hold space and celebrate my novice position. I'm not good at it YET, (and probably won't be for a long, long time) but I showed up. This is what counts when you are learning something new.
