Hello there my dear friends. Back with another one of my yoga posts calling out our lovely sponsor Onzie Yogawear.
Lately I’ve been very conscious of whether I’m bringing good energy or bad energy into our family’s atmosphere. When I wake up refreshed and rested and manage to squeeze in a yoga class (plus coffee at my favorite local stop), I’m reborn, reshaped into a better mom. When tensions rise, I manage to keep my voice calm and low. When tantrums land certain family members on the floor, out from me flows the calm, cool voice of reason. Now, deduct the sleep, the yoga and the coffee from this equation and this here mama ain’t handling things quite so well.
We moms know a lot about reversing energy. Kids can come home grumpy and tired from a long day, full of complaints and demands. A choice stares you in the face: get annoyed and yell at them, or deflect their moodiness and continue along the happy path of your day, thereby changing the course of your child’s day, too. When I’m at my best, I’m an indefatigable deflector or reverser of bad moods, tensions, tantrums and all the rest.I turn my back on the bad energy and ….Look upwards, breathe deeply, and inhale positivity …Sometimes I need to breathe deeply for a few minutes before I’m ready to inject positive energy into the equation … Yoga teaches us how to do this.When it comes to reversing bad energy into good, the Reverse Warrior Pose of vinyasa yoga prepares you for the maneuvers you enact in your life as a mom. Part of the sequence of vinyassa yoga poses and coming directly after the Warrior Two pose, the Reverse Warrior Pose strengthens and stretches the legs, hips and the sides of the torso and waist.
It improves flexibility in the spine, inner thighs, ankles and chest.And it builds strength in the thighs, shoulders and arms.Onzie’s perfect yoga pants are soft, thin, flexible and cling to the body at all the right points. Atop this lovely sky and clouds capri pant, Onzie’s steel-grey glossy flow tank provided the perfect compliment. A simple black bra underneath completed the look.
This Thanksgiving, look to the horizons and say goodbye to the demons of bad energy. Remind yourself of all that you are grateful for, your children, your body that helps to care for them each day, the air your breathe, and the infinite sky that always holds out the promise of another day.Stand tall and be proud of what you are and what you do. No one else will see all you do every day, but your children know it deep within themselves, and they love you for it now and forever.Be strong. Reverse the bad energy into good. Stand tall. Be proud. Be grateful.
