Yoga journaling

I've had this beautiful journal for more than a year now just sitting, not sure what to use it for.

I'm not big on taking time out each day and letting my thoughts flow, even if they are private thoughts.

In any event, I was recently reading an online yoga forum where someone posted about Yoga Journaling.

I have touched upon this on here in the past but I thought this was a really cool, more personal way to advance my practice and continue to make the connections from my mat to real life.

The format to follow is suggested as:

Date/Place of Practice

Today's Intention


Goals for Practice

Successes/What I am Grateful for


I started last night by documenting my studio class earlier that day.

My plan is to get yoga in at home or work and document it if I can't make it to the studio that day.

Even a few minutes of yoga is still yoga ;).

Just need to get thru today + tomorrow

I took today off from work.
I am part of an organization that aims at the betterment of our town and tomorrow is our huge annual fundraiser.
There's a lot of set up and running around involved later today so I said let me treat myself by taking the day.

This actually has still turned into seeing clients in the beginning half of my day however (one for my FT job, I'm just getting paid for that hour, the other is a makeup for my PT position).

My sleep has been off this week so I can't wait until tomorrow night around 7 pm when all of this is over and I can get back to a somewhat less hectic life.

But not really. 

It is the holidays after all.

I kind of am not a big fan at all and really wish we could just fast forward to January instead...
