One of the best perks here at the Rock House Hotel is the 8a yoga offered by the pool (overlooking the ocean) every morning. It’s so beautiful looking out onto the water and it definitely makes those utkatasanas much easier to stay in just a bit longer;).
I do my best to get a little bit of yoga into each of my days. Most days that means I pull out my mat to do 10-15 minutes on my bedroom floor concentrating on whichever poses will relieve whichever achy muscles I have that day (i.e. sore lower back from sleeping with Avi all night or achy right arm and shoulder for choosing to carry her instead of lugging the stroller or for that matter achy upper back for lugging a stroller into and out of a cab when all she really wants to do is walk).
We do mommy and baby yoga on Mondays and I always love our Mondays for this. Starting the day with a true practice is such a phenomenal, invigorating, energizing way to get through the day’s struggles.
This morning Richie and I got up super early to the sound of the waves crashing in the caves beneath us. I peeled myself out of bed and washed up, made us some iced green tea, each had a bit of computer time to feel caught up, and off we were to yoga overlooking the Caribbean ocean. The only thing missing from this extraordinary day is our little munchkin, but I expect she is having a fantabulous time of her own with my parents in Connecticut (a vacation of her own).
