We are the champions

I do feel a bit like a champion this morning. I've just completed my fourth morning yoga practice in a row. I won't bore you with the details other than it was a 27 minute practice and when I finished it I felt like a switch in my brain had been flipped on. I still feel tired (I've not been sleeping well lately) but I feel mentally more alert.

Today's card, Six of Rods, from the Anna K Tarot (Llewellyn 2103) shows the feeling of triumph. The man standing on the podium with flowers at his feet does look to me like an athlete, in his loincloth with the laurel wreath on his head. Maybe he's just defeated someone in a wrestling match, or perhaps he's just completed a marathon. Whatever his achievement, he's worked hard for it, feels great about it, and the crowd around him is equally thrilled and chuffed for him.

What is it in your life that makes you say, 'Yaaaaaaaay!!!!' Look for it today. :)


  1. I immediately smiled when I saw this card. It IS how I felt today and despite the heat, I pushed through my exercise program. Yay for me. Do you do the yoga on your own or is it a class situation. I've been trying on my own but really do need help. Must look into that.
    Hope you are having a great day :))

    1. I do yoga on my own using DVDs. I'm also learning how to create my own vinyasa flow practice using some basic principles a yoga instructor friend shared with me. I'm learning to appreciate where I am now, to be where I am now, and not waste my time striving to do 'better'.

    2. Any suggestions for what DVD's to buy? I do have a book but yeah a DVD would probably be a better plan. Visual. I am so not flexible although I exercise all the time. Do what I can.

    3. Well, Rodney Yee is a very good instructor. I quite like his Yoga Burn DVD. I can also recommend Budokon Beginners Practice by Cameron Shayne.

  2. Yay for your yoga practice. And I had a bit of a yay moment, too - a good day all round :)
