Daily yoga benefits

What happened when I started doing yoga every day

1
00:00:00,060 –> 00:00:02,820
the first time I ever did yoga was when

2
00:00:02,820 –> 00:00:05,009
I was 18 years old my sister and I had

3
00:00:05,009 –> 00:00:08,550
just been experimenting with raw vegan

4
00:00:08,550 –> 00:00:10,530
foods and we were learning about new

5
00:00:10,530 –> 00:00:12,420
forms of exercise and we thought yoga

6
00:00:12,420 –> 00:00:14,280
would go perfectly with raw vegan foods

7
00:00:14,280 –> 00:00:17,850
and we tried it out at yoga works and I

8
00:00:17,850 –> 00:00:21,300
liked it I mean I didn’t really I I knew

9
00:00:21,300 –> 00:00:22,830
I was doing because I knew it was good

10
00:00:22,830 –> 00:00:23,369
for me

11
00:00:23,369 –> 00:00:24,900
but I really just thought of it as like

12
00:00:24,900 –> 00:00:26,550
a type of stretching you should know as

13
00:00:26,550 –> 00:00:28,920
a background I really have never been

14
00:00:28,920 –> 00:00:31,320
very naturally athletic I tried a lot of

15
00:00:31,320 –> 00:00:34,230
sports as a kid I did gymnastics um

16
00:00:34,230 –> 00:00:36,480
pretty religiously I was obsessed with

17
00:00:36,480 –> 00:00:38,040
getting on team with the gymnastics that

18
00:00:38,040 –> 00:00:39,750
I never could because I was just not

19
00:00:39,750 –> 00:00:42,180
naturally very athletic when I got to

20
00:00:42,180 –> 00:00:44,190
junior in high school I really only did

21
00:00:44,190 –> 00:00:46,410
cheerleading and I was the captain as

22
00:00:46,410 –> 00:00:47,879
you can’t imagine I don’t know it just

23
00:00:47,879 –> 00:00:49,230
wasn’t I’ve never been very good at

24
00:00:49,230 –> 00:00:52,050
sports so when I got into like college I

25
00:00:52,050 –> 00:00:54,809
I just never really exercised I would

26
00:00:54,809 –> 00:00:56,670
try to exercise I didn’t really know how

27
00:00:56,670 –> 00:01:00,600
I didn’t know what to do so yoga to me

28
00:01:00,600 –> 00:01:02,670
was just like stretching I didn’t really

29
00:01:02,670 –> 00:01:05,250
see it as a form of real exercise or a

30
00:01:05,250 –> 00:01:07,799
way to gain muscle flash-forward nine

31
00:01:07,799 –> 00:01:11,430
years later about um I started doing

32
00:01:11,430 –> 00:01:13,650
yoga everyday and the reason I was able

33
00:01:13,650 –> 00:01:16,560
to do that was because my friend

34
00:01:16,560 –> 00:01:17,909
Michelle started a website called

35
00:01:17,909 –> 00:01:20,100
thriving plant-based which I have talked

36
00:01:20,100 –> 00:01:22,560
about probably a zillion times I’m sorry

37
00:01:22,560 –> 00:01:24,570
if you get tired of me talking about it

38
00:01:24,570 –> 00:01:27,390
um but you know it’s just been like a

39
00:01:27,390 –> 00:01:29,880
huge huge part of my yoga journey up

40
00:01:29,880 –> 00:01:31,740
until that point I really had only done

41
00:01:31,740 –> 00:01:34,380
um small amounts of yoga because I would

42
00:01:34,380 –> 00:01:36,119
join like a beginner package at a studio

43
00:01:36,119 –> 00:01:39,240
and do yoga pretty consistently for two

44
00:01:39,240 –> 00:01:41,159
weeks and I would stop because studios

45
00:01:41,159 –> 00:01:43,979
are so expensive and this website is

46
00:01:43,979 –> 00:01:45,299
only ten dollars a month for unlimited

47
00:01:45,299 –> 00:01:47,460
yoga classes and you get to do them at

48
00:01:47,460 –> 00:01:49,409
your own convenience at home you could

49
00:01:49,409 –> 00:01:50,790
do them in your underwear at which I

50
00:01:50,790 –> 00:01:52,950
definitely do almost all the time and

51
00:01:52,950 –> 00:01:54,930
you can work on um things at your own

52
00:01:54,930 –> 00:01:57,149
pace and you can really focus on

53
00:01:57,149 –> 00:01:58,229
something that you want to do you can do

54
00:01:58,229 –> 00:02:00,299
like a bunch of back bending videos that

55
00:02:00,299 –> 00:02:02,610
week just just to explain when I say I

56
00:02:02,610 –> 00:02:04,439
do yoga every day it doesn’t mean I’m

57
00:02:04,439 –> 00:02:06,689
doing an hour class every single day I

58
00:02:06,689 –> 00:02:09,568
wish I could do that but ultimately what

59
00:02:09,568 –> 00:02:11,340
it comes down to is

60
00:02:11,340 –> 00:02:14,400
I do something every day in terms of

61
00:02:14,400 –> 00:02:16,770
yoga I started doing this because of

62
00:02:16,770 –> 00:02:18,180
Michelle because of her encouragement

63
00:02:18,180 –> 00:02:20,760
that like hashtag yoga every damn day

64
00:02:20,760 –> 00:02:23,670
and I am a very extreme person so I

65
00:02:23,670 –> 00:02:26,250
really love that idea of like I have to

66
00:02:26,250 –> 00:02:28,410
do every day not like do something in

67
00:02:28,410 –> 00:02:30,209
moderation I’m not a moderate type of

68
00:02:30,209 –> 00:02:32,760
person so it really spoke to me and it

69
00:02:32,760 –> 00:02:34,880
made a lot of sense to me to just oh

70
00:02:34,880 –> 00:02:37,319
just get on my mat every day I can do

71
00:02:37,319 –> 00:02:37,800
that

72
00:02:37,800 –> 00:02:39,540
rather than every other day that for

73
00:02:39,540 –> 00:02:41,400
some reason that’s more daunting I don’t

74
00:02:41,400 –> 00:02:43,140
understand my brain so I make it on my

75
00:02:43,140 –> 00:02:46,080
mat for two minutes and just like sit

76
00:02:46,080 –> 00:02:47,519
there I meditate or I’ll sit there and

77
00:02:47,519 –> 00:02:49,470
like a forward fold or something if I

78
00:02:49,470 –> 00:02:51,180
don’t have any time but if I do have

79
00:02:51,180 –> 00:02:52,890
time and I really do try to make time

80
00:02:52,890 –> 00:02:55,700
I’ll do 30 minutes to an hour depending

81
00:02:55,700 –> 00:02:59,010
on the type of like video that I choose

82
00:02:59,010 –> 00:03:01,500
so most of the time I’m doing an hour a

83
00:03:01,500 –> 00:03:03,720
day but not all the time let’s get to

84
00:03:03,720 –> 00:03:05,989
the point and since I started doing yoga

85
00:03:05,989 –> 00:03:12,930
every single day for almost a year no

86
00:03:12,930 –> 00:03:15,150
more than a year for more than a year I

87
00:03:15,150 –> 00:03:17,880
have seen amazing things that happened

88
00:03:17,880 –> 00:03:19,609
in my life that I never even expected

89
00:03:19,609 –> 00:03:22,769
because remember I really just looked at

90
00:03:22,769 –> 00:03:25,070
yoga as stretching I just never even

91
00:03:25,070 –> 00:03:26,880
anticipated these things so it’s so

92
00:03:26,880 –> 00:03:29,630
exciting to see

93
00:03:42,450 –> 00:03:46,170
the first thing that I noticed was my

94
00:03:46,170 –> 00:03:49,110
physical strength and I was like

95
00:03:49,110 –> 00:03:51,630
actually getting toned from an exercise

96
00:03:51,630 –> 00:03:53,520
just before you and yoga I used to

97
00:03:53,520 –> 00:03:56,100
really focus on like that high intensity

98
00:03:56,100 –> 00:03:57,959
training which I know works for a lot of

99
00:03:57,959 –> 00:04:00,750
people is just like not my thing because

100
00:04:00,750 –> 00:04:03,780
I don’t like being uncomfortable and I

101
00:04:03,780 –> 00:04:06,480
don’t like doing a bunch of squats and a

102
00:04:06,480 –> 00:04:10,140
bunch of sit-ups and stuff so I didn’t

103
00:04:10,140 –> 00:04:11,730
love it I think that’s really the reason

104
00:04:11,730 –> 00:04:13,440
I didn’t experience the benefits of it I

105
00:04:13,440 –> 00:04:15,300
think that the reason I’m experiencing

106
00:04:15,300 –> 00:04:18,510
physical benefits from yoga is because I

107
00:04:18,510 –> 00:04:21,000
love it and I want to get on my mat and

108
00:04:21,000 –> 00:04:23,520
I actually want to practicing it better

109
00:04:23,520 –> 00:04:25,260
and it’s not just like can you do a

110
00:04:25,260 –> 00:04:27,750
bunch of burpees it’s like can you get

111
00:04:27,750 –> 00:04:30,030
into this one side plank with your leg

112
00:04:30,030 –> 00:04:32,310
raised nope can’t do that but I’m gonna

113
00:04:32,310 –> 00:04:35,400
try I noticed that I had like tone like

114
00:04:35,400 –> 00:04:36,960
my arms are getting toned and that was

115
00:04:36,960 –> 00:04:38,280
the first thing I noticed because I

116
00:04:38,280 –> 00:04:42,150
never in my life had shape to my arms

117
00:04:42,150 –> 00:04:45,120
like that was just crazy to me I I was

118
00:04:45,120 –> 00:04:46,979
like a little obnoxious to my friends

119
00:04:46,979 –> 00:04:48,840
cuz if you like check out my arms I have

120
00:04:48,840 –> 00:04:52,440
muscle like so it’s fan and they’d be

121
00:04:52,440 –> 00:04:53,580
like okay oh my gosh you’re like

122
00:04:53,580 –> 00:04:55,410
literally bragging about your body I’m

123
00:04:55,410 –> 00:04:56,729
like yeah I know what I’m so excited

124
00:04:56,729 –> 00:04:58,680
then the other thing I noticed is like

125
00:04:58,680 –> 00:05:02,010
that actually have like a some ABS cuz I

126
00:05:02,010 –> 00:05:05,490
never really had that before um and like

127
00:05:05,490 –> 00:05:08,580
I have like strengthen my core and I can

128
00:05:08,580 –> 00:05:11,250
hold plank for pretty much ever

129
00:05:11,250 –> 00:05:14,070
which you know never could do that

130
00:05:14,070 –> 00:05:16,260
before the second and probably the most

131
00:05:16,260 –> 00:05:18,510
powerful thing that I noticed it’s

132
00:05:18,510 –> 00:05:20,820
something that’s not as tangible as like

133
00:05:20,820 –> 00:05:23,790
muscles and my arms or anything um was

134
00:05:23,790 –> 00:05:26,220
that I was more creative and this is

135
00:05:26,220 –> 00:05:28,050
something that’s really really important

136
00:05:28,050 –> 00:05:29,820
to me if you know me at all you know

137
00:05:29,820 –> 00:05:31,169
it’s like something that I talk about

138
00:05:31,169 –> 00:05:33,210
all the time I always um strive to live

139
00:05:33,210 –> 00:05:35,520
a more creative and inspired life and

140
00:05:35,520 –> 00:05:38,370
when I was a kid I wrote songs and

141
00:05:38,370 –> 00:05:40,470
stories my first story was about a whale

142
00:05:40,470 –> 00:05:42,690
and you know like growing up I’m just

143
00:05:42,690 –> 00:05:44,160
like super creative because I’m like a

144
00:05:44,160 –> 00:05:45,960
child and I don’t know any different and

145
00:05:45,960 –> 00:05:48,090
I don’t have a filter and I can just say

146
00:05:48,090 –> 00:05:49,110
whatever I want

147
00:05:49,110 –> 00:05:50,879
not afraid to make mistakes but then as

148
00:05:50,879 –> 00:05:53,970
I went to college I really started to

149
00:05:53,970 –> 00:05:55,620
hone my skills as taking creative

150
00:05:55,620 –> 00:05:57,780
writing classes I worked on a screenplay

151
00:05:57,780 –> 00:06:00,180
I wrote dozens of short stories and then

152
00:06:00,180 –> 00:06:03,060
ultimately I wanted to write a novel so

153
00:06:03,060 –> 00:06:05,520
this was just a few years ago it was my

154
00:06:05,520 –> 00:06:07,500
very first time and I love reading

155
00:06:07,500 –> 00:06:10,530
novels so I was so excited but it was

156
00:06:10,530 –> 00:06:13,080
such a struggle for me I was so blocked

157
00:06:13,080 –> 00:06:15,330
because I wasn’t exercising my creative

158
00:06:15,330 –> 00:06:17,550
muscle the way I used to

159
00:06:17,550 –> 00:06:19,860
I wasn’t inspired I nothing made me I

160
00:06:19,860 –> 00:06:21,270
wasn’t writing things down and they

161
00:06:21,270 –> 00:06:22,710
loved it and a little notebook in the

162
00:06:22,710 –> 00:06:25,319
back of my pocket like so inspired by

163
00:06:25,319 –> 00:06:26,580
everything like that just wasn’t

164
00:06:26,580 –> 00:06:28,560
happening for me I just was like blocked

165
00:06:28,560 –> 00:06:31,020
it felt physical almost it felt like I

166
00:06:31,020 –> 00:06:34,409
was closed and then I don’t want to get

167
00:06:34,409 –> 00:06:37,139
too emotional of it like I I started

168
00:06:37,139 –> 00:06:39,030
doing yoga every day and I remember this

169
00:06:39,030 –> 00:06:41,370
one night driving home down the hill

170
00:06:41,370 –> 00:06:43,680
pulling into our parking lot thinking

171
00:06:43,680 –> 00:06:46,319
like just being inspired by 15 things at

172
00:06:46,319 –> 00:06:49,979
once and thinking oh my gosh I’m back I

173
00:06:49,979 –> 00:06:51,930
really account that to yoga and I

174
00:06:51,930 –> 00:06:53,340
remember I put something on snapchat

175
00:06:53,340 –> 00:06:55,800
like well guys I don’t know what it is

176
00:06:55,800 –> 00:06:58,020
but I feel like I’m so good I like my

177
00:06:58,020 –> 00:07:00,810
creativity has been unleashed and I feel

178
00:07:00,810 –> 00:07:02,610
like open like I can breathe again and

179
00:07:02,610 –> 00:07:05,370
that like it’s like a physical thing but

180
00:07:05,370 –> 00:07:07,490
it’s also a spiritual thing like I’m

181
00:07:07,490 –> 00:07:10,500
breathing like my emotional muscles are

182
00:07:10,500 –> 00:07:12,330
just like working again and then I’m

183
00:07:12,330 –> 00:07:15,419
writing became so much more fluid and

184
00:07:15,419 –> 00:07:17,789
easy and I got so many different ideas I

185
00:07:17,789 –> 00:07:19,349
started a bunch of different novels and

186
00:07:19,349 –> 00:07:21,960
now I’m working on another one yeah

187
00:07:21,960 –> 00:07:25,259
basically what I want to say is that I

188
00:07:25,259 –> 00:07:27,509
don’t know why and maybe someone with

189
00:07:27,509 –> 00:07:29,339
more knowledge about the yogic practice

190
00:07:29,339 –> 00:07:31,979
can explain why this happened to me but

191
00:07:31,979 –> 00:07:34,169
when I started doing yoga every single

192
00:07:34,169 –> 00:07:36,360
day not sporadically – every single day

193
00:07:36,360 –> 00:07:39,659
my chakras maybe something like that

194
00:07:39,659 –> 00:07:41,460
something opened up in me and I became a

195
00:07:41,460 –> 00:07:45,210
more creative person and I knew and it

196
00:07:45,210 –> 00:07:48,089
wasn’t like I was just channeling

197
00:07:48,089 –> 00:07:49,889
creativity myself like by my own

198
00:07:49,889 –> 00:07:52,349
willpower it was like things started

199
00:07:52,349 –> 00:07:55,110
coming at me like my podcast got started

200
00:07:55,110 –> 00:07:57,630
I started a pop-up dinner and like all

201
00:07:57,630 –> 00:07:58,889
these different like different people

202
00:07:58,889 –> 00:07:59,910
started coming into my

203
00:07:59,910 –> 00:08:02,340
life to spur on more creativity which I

204
00:08:02,340 –> 00:08:05,520
will never say no to the third thing is

205
00:08:05,520 –> 00:08:09,300
even more abstract okay as a woman you

206
00:08:09,300 –> 00:08:11,460
know most of us have like insecurities

207
00:08:11,460 –> 00:08:13,560
and we’re like not very aware of our

208
00:08:13,560 –> 00:08:16,440
bodies in a way that is a positive thing

209
00:08:16,440 –> 00:08:19,770
and we might not love our bodies and the

210
00:08:19,770 –> 00:08:22,710
way we should I don’t know why a lot of

211
00:08:22,710 –> 00:08:23,970
these things I don’t know why once I

212
00:08:23,970 –> 00:08:25,620
started doing yoga every day I became so

213
00:08:25,620 –> 00:08:27,180
much more conscious about my body like

214
00:08:27,180 –> 00:08:28,920
the way a dancer is very conscious like

215
00:08:28,920 –> 00:08:30,570
their shoulders are back in there they

216
00:08:30,570 –> 00:08:31,920
know where they said they step more

217
00:08:31,920 –> 00:08:34,080
lightly they are just more in tune with

218
00:08:34,080 –> 00:08:35,700
the way they move that’s kind of what I

219
00:08:35,700 –> 00:08:38,429
started to experience and I’ve become so

220
00:08:38,429 –> 00:08:41,969
much more like open with my body like I

221
00:08:41,969 –> 00:08:45,810
don’t care anymore if I don’t know if

222
00:08:45,810 –> 00:08:47,820
I’m like a little too exposed or

223
00:08:47,820 –> 00:08:49,470
something because I just feel like I

224
00:08:49,470 –> 00:08:52,110
love myself so much and this is my body

225
00:08:52,110 –> 00:08:55,610
and it’s not anyone to tell me how I

226
00:08:55,610 –> 00:08:58,470
dress myself like I’m dressing like very

227
00:08:58,470 –> 00:09:04,350
um what’s the word promiscuously I

228
00:09:04,350 –> 00:09:08,520
became more aware of what this body can

229
00:09:08,520 –> 00:09:10,680
do for me and how I can actually love my

230
00:09:10,680 –> 00:09:13,620
body and not hate it for stupid things

231
00:09:13,620 –> 00:09:15,690
like well I’ve got ripples on my butt

232
00:09:15,690 –> 00:09:18,060
like cares love your body because it’s

233
00:09:18,060 –> 00:09:20,220
the only one you’ve got I’m number four

234
00:09:20,220 –> 00:09:22,620
it might not seem like it but I’m a

235
00:09:22,620 –> 00:09:24,150
pretty emotional person you probably

236
00:09:24,150 –> 00:09:26,670
can’t tell I tend to have a bit of a

237
00:09:26,670 –> 00:09:29,280
temper I will admit it I’m that person

238
00:09:29,280 –> 00:09:31,260
who will have a fight with either my

239
00:09:31,260 –> 00:09:33,300
sister or my husband or my mom in public

240
00:09:33,300 –> 00:09:35,580
and like yell and they’re like stop

241
00:09:35,580 –> 00:09:37,230
healing you’re making a scene and I’m

242
00:09:37,230 –> 00:09:39,840
like I don’t care but then later I’m so

243
00:09:39,840 –> 00:09:40,440
embarrassed

244
00:09:40,440 –> 00:09:42,510
however when I started doing yoga every

245
00:09:42,510 –> 00:09:45,900
day my temper has become so much more

246
00:09:45,900 –> 00:09:51,120
manageable and more just even and um I I

247
00:09:51,120 –> 00:09:53,460
mean my husband might disagree but I

248
00:09:53,460 –> 00:09:56,160
don’t think that I really just snap

249
00:09:56,160 –> 00:09:59,220
anymore very much like it’s like I’m I’m

250
00:09:59,220 –> 00:10:01,590
just able to really control myself a

251
00:10:01,590 –> 00:10:03,930
little bit more and speak with intention

252
00:10:03,930 –> 00:10:06,660
rather than speaking out of pure

253
00:10:06,660 –> 00:10:09,420
emotional volatile reaction I’m actually

254
00:10:09,420 –> 00:10:12,930
um speaking with what like the words

255
00:10:12,930 –> 00:10:13,590
that I want

256
00:10:13,590 –> 00:10:17,040
to say and then also on top of that I’ve

257
00:10:17,040 –> 00:10:19,770
been able to react to situations so much

258
00:10:19,770 –> 00:10:21,900
more neutrally like if something bad

259
00:10:21,900 –> 00:10:25,290
happens I’m not like oh my gosh my life

260
00:10:25,290 –> 00:10:27,960
is over it’s more like oh this has

261
00:10:27,960 –> 00:10:32,430
happened how can what can I do to fix it

262
00:10:32,430 –> 00:10:36,660
or how can I wait patiently for God or

263
00:10:36,660 –> 00:10:38,070
the universe or whatever you want to

264
00:10:38,070 –> 00:10:40,830
call it um supplies that to me the best

265
00:10:40,830 –> 00:10:44,790
example is about six weeks ago I was

266
00:10:44,790 –> 00:10:46,650
told at my job at Long Beach City

267
00:10:46,650 –> 00:10:50,100
College that I might not have a job in

268
00:10:50,100 –> 00:10:51,990
the following term and the following

269
00:10:51,990 –> 00:10:54,870
term was that Monday so I was like oh oh

270
00:10:54,870 –> 00:10:57,060
my gosh okay I might not have a job and

271
00:10:57,060 –> 00:11:00,900
I came home and I just thought okay not

272
00:11:00,900 –> 00:11:02,850
a big deal this happens all the time to

273
00:11:02,850 –> 00:11:06,120
people across the world I wasn’t worried

274
00:11:06,120 –> 00:11:08,730
mostly because we’re not living paycheck

275
00:11:08,730 –> 00:11:11,700
to paycheck like we have enough saved

276
00:11:11,700 –> 00:11:14,940
that we’ll be okay you know but of

277
00:11:14,940 –> 00:11:17,400
course um I need to work so that day I

278
00:11:17,400 –> 00:11:20,100
started looking for jobs I started

279
00:11:20,100 –> 00:11:22,350
looking for work and I found a job

280
00:11:22,350 –> 00:11:26,160
within I think a week and it’s a much

281
00:11:26,160 –> 00:11:29,130
better job than what I have and it’s a

282
00:11:29,130 –> 00:11:32,370
job with more opportunity and I love my

283
00:11:32,370 –> 00:11:33,930
job at Long Beach City I love the people

284
00:11:33,930 –> 00:11:35,490
I work with I wish I could work there

285
00:11:35,490 –> 00:11:37,680
forever but unfortunately I mean I

286
00:11:37,680 –> 00:11:40,050
really do need to like get paid more

287
00:11:40,050 –> 00:11:41,880
basically this is a better job for me

288
00:11:41,880 –> 00:11:43,590
it’s a really wonderful environment I

289
00:11:43,590 –> 00:11:45,470
love the people I’m working with and

290
00:11:45,470 –> 00:11:47,940
like the following day that I got an

291
00:11:47,940 –> 00:11:49,380
interview at this university that I’m

292
00:11:49,380 –> 00:11:51,990
working at now a past colleague of mine

293
00:11:51,990 –> 00:11:54,000
texted me and said do you need a job and

294
00:11:54,000 –> 00:11:56,640
I was like actually yes and she

295
00:11:56,640 –> 00:11:58,800
recommended me to another job up in LA

296
00:11:58,800 –> 00:12:00,630
essentially I had jobs coming at me all

297
00:12:00,630 –> 00:12:02,790
over the place and I just didn’t need

298
00:12:02,790 –> 00:12:05,850
there was no point to react in an

299
00:12:05,850 –> 00:12:07,500
extreme way because it was going to

300
00:12:07,500 –> 00:12:07,860
happen

301
00:12:07,860 –> 00:12:09,930
the fist thing and this is probably not

302
00:12:09,930 –> 00:12:12,210
honestly like the least important thing

303
00:12:12,210 –> 00:12:16,680
to me and this is that I I don’t like

304
00:12:16,680 –> 00:12:17,880
using these words but basically I’ve

305
00:12:17,880 –> 00:12:19,530
gotten better at yoga this might be

306
00:12:19,530 –> 00:12:21,570
something that a lot of people are

307
00:12:21,570 –> 00:12:23,730
interested in like oh how do I become

308
00:12:23,730 –> 00:12:25,640
like Michelle

309
00:12:25,640 –> 00:12:28,040
Michels banana blondie 108 on Instagram

310
00:12:28,040 –> 00:12:30,770
and her Instagram is just like gorgeous

311
00:12:30,770 –> 00:12:33,620
like she’s like you know 50% of her

312
00:12:33,620 –> 00:12:35,300
comments or like goals goals goals

313
00:12:35,300 –> 00:12:36,710
because she’s looks she looks amazing

314
00:12:36,710 –> 00:12:40,370
and her um practice is just beautiful

315
00:12:40,370 –> 00:12:43,130
and she can do things I can’t even

316
00:12:43,130 –> 00:12:45,590
imagine doing that might seem like an

317
00:12:45,590 –> 00:12:47,930
aspiration for a lot of people but it’s

318
00:12:47,930 –> 00:12:51,980
it hasn’t it was my aspiration in the

319
00:12:51,980 –> 00:12:55,760
beginning and now I have been able to do

320
00:12:55,760 –> 00:12:57,950
more things than I was able to do in the

321
00:12:57,950 –> 00:13:00,950
beginning but it’s like the least

322
00:13:00,950 –> 00:13:02,900
important thing to me compare it to the

323
00:13:02,900 –> 00:13:04,960
four other things on this list because

324
00:13:04,960 –> 00:13:07,640
like so what you can stand on your head

325
00:13:07,640 –> 00:13:08,660
for five minutes

326
00:13:08,660 –> 00:13:10,130
so what like that doesn’t really change

327
00:13:10,130 –> 00:13:13,130
your life um but it’s it’s the practice

328
00:13:13,130 –> 00:13:15,050
of it and the moving meditation of it

329
00:13:15,050 –> 00:13:18,440
that has completely revitalized me it’s

330
00:13:18,440 –> 00:13:20,420
really cool that’s like I’ve been able

331
00:13:20,420 –> 00:13:22,220
to improve in certain ways I’ve become

332
00:13:22,220 –> 00:13:23,870
more flexible I can do the splits again

333
00:13:23,870 –> 00:13:25,550
there are certain arm balances I can do

334
00:13:25,550 –> 00:13:27,740
you know it’s like I don’t even think

335
00:13:27,740 –> 00:13:31,390
about those things in terms of like

336
00:13:31,390 –> 00:13:33,710
accomplishments it’s more just part of

337
00:13:33,710 –> 00:13:36,620
the practice and it’s so beautiful and I

338
00:13:36,620 –> 00:13:38,210
love it and I love every minute of it

339
00:13:38,210 –> 00:13:40,520
and I love the challenges and I love the

340
00:13:40,520 –> 00:13:42,020
whole process I love all of it and

341
00:13:42,020 –> 00:13:44,090
learning to love all of it helps me to

342
00:13:44,090 –> 00:13:47,060
love all of life like embrace all of it

343
00:13:47,060 –> 00:13:48,530
embrace all of the heartache and all of

344
00:13:48,530 –> 00:13:50,420
the pain I’ve gone through a lot this

345
00:13:50,420 –> 00:13:53,060
year well getting emotional again this

346
00:13:53,060 –> 00:13:56,450
practice has helped me to really embrace

347
00:13:56,450 –> 00:13:59,030
it all embrace the feelings and not be

348
00:13:59,030 –> 00:14:01,550
afraid of those feelings and afraid of

349
00:14:01,550 –> 00:14:02,960
the challenges that you get I’m

350
00:14:02,960 –> 00:14:04,130
finishing this video

351
00:14:04,130 –> 00:14:05,690
honestly I turn the fan off and close

352
00:14:05,690 –> 00:14:06,860
the windows and I’m sweating bullets

353
00:14:06,860 –> 00:14:08,870
over here you can see the sweat on my

354
00:14:08,870 –> 00:14:10,910
face isn’t it great I don’t know how to

355
00:14:10,910 –> 00:14:12,470
end my video so I’m just going to say

356
00:14:12,470 –> 00:00:00,000
bye-bye
