Reboot Day 20: More yoga for bears

When there has been a lot of running and squatting and of course a lot of dancing in a bear’s schedule, what they really need to do is some yogaing… 

Bears yoga-ing
Yoga in like these bears here 😁. Actually probably not as well as these bears here but I am getting slightly better! It wasn’t quite as hard as it was two weeks ago!

I was, in an unusual break with tradition, trying to work on my weaknesses and improving things that could do with extra work. Mostly my hip flexors and legs which are becoming particularly tight due mainly to sitting down for 8 hours at a desk! 

Actually this happens to most people because modern life is like that, lots of sitting in cars and at desks and suchlike.

Anyway… to attempt to counteract this, I chose two Yoga with Adriene videos, Yoga for the Psoas and 7 min Yoga for Runners. After all if I am going to run a half marathon I should be a runner and I can only assume (in fact I have mentioned it before) that yoga for runners makes you a runner!

They were good videos, not easy but definitely good stretchy! They did also make me realise that I have a long way to go until I am actually a yoga bear…

Still every little helps and my legs felt better afterwards 😁

    1. They are both really good, although I found standing up to do the runners one after the end of the psoas one a little wierd!
      I think hip flexors are a common weak spot to be honest…I need to do this one a lot more often!

      1. On of my favorite quotes/memes was that “yoga is not about touching your toes, but what you learn on the way down” It took me years to be able to do some of the poses – and I still modify others! I just accept it and keep moving forward, knowing that one day, my body will be able to do something that it couldn’t do the week before! But, I say that about a lot of things in my life! LOL

      2. that is an awesome way to look at it πŸ˜€

        I always feel better after I have done it regardless of how much modifying I have to do! I have basically only been doing yoga for 2 weeks…and 30 days last year so I have a long way to go… πŸ˜€
