energy...

So I went to Yoga today. i haven't been in a long time and boy, am i out of shape. But as soon as i stood in mountain pose with my palms facing each other i felt my energy start to flow. I kept my hands extended for most of the time because it felt so good. I didnt do some of the things b/c i am out of shape but what i did do i could feel it. so now I feel more centered and my Chi thanks me...

now if i can just remember or have the energy to do Tai Chi/Quigong tomorrow.

Michelle,
Sounds interesting. I've never tried yoga, but it seems like it would keep you well stretched.

It seems that's the way it goes with everything--we let it slide for a while and then it's so hard to get back, but when we do, we feel oh so good.

I love Yoga. I like that something that gives my body a workout also gives my brain a boost. I am more centered when I am practicing. Besides my MC in my book is a yoga fanatic and he chastizes me for not doing it everytime he sees my mat bag. something like, "Isnt it time we went back?" and i just wave my hand and say yeah,yeah. Honestly it is emotionaly painfull to go because my best friend and I used to go and we'd talk plot and characters while we did the poses. I miss her so much and that is why I stopped going. Sigh Yoga will never be the same. But for my health and my boook's sake I need to start again.

Chi energy is an interesting thing. I was writing about it before I really even learned about it. I was surprised that what translates to religion in my book is so real in the eastern world.
