Oh you thought just because I skipped town today and have been traveling for over twelve hours that I'd just leave you hanging for a Friday video? No, my friends. I've been working so hard the last couple weeks to have a bunch of content ready to go for you over the next month while I'm in Greece, Italy and Morocco. (Feel free to follow the travels on instagram.)
I've finally landed in Athens and tomorrow morning we'll get up at 5:45am and head to the port where we'll take a ferry to the Cycladic Island of Sifnos. It's been a pretty decent travel so far. I got a wheelchair for Newark, Heathrow and Athens airports and it's the best thing I ever did. Aside from giving my ankle a break, the people who pushed were so kind, knew all the shortcuts, and always were down to crack a few jokes.
One thing I forgot about Londoners was when you ask them how they are, they give you an honest answer. I can't tell you how many people I spoke to in London from check in at the ticketing area, the lounge (where I got the best shower!), the customs people, etc. I asked each person how they were doing and every single one was like, "Well, I could be better." Or, "I'm just okay." It was crazy! On one hand it's a little awkward - I mean what do you say to that when there's a line of people behind you? On the other hand, honesty is refreshing!
So anyway. Today I'm bringing you a 30 minute restorative yin yoga video. I'm using a few props but feel free to improvise using what you have. Couch cushions work well as a sub for bolsters. Thick books work well as a sub for blocks. Don't get too hung up on it, you know?
I shot this soon after my ankle injury so as you will probably be able to tell in the video I was in quite a bit of pain. I did my best, though, and hope you guys enjoy.
