Cindy, nicely done. By the way, I wanted to share with you that in addition to the vaccines and booster shot, my ability to stave off the effects of COVID after a couple of days was also due to Yoga breathing I do daily over the last six years. I breathe so much better now (and snore less), focus on breathing in and out of my nose as I exercise. My COVID symptoms were more around a sore throat and some head congestion and headaches. Yet, I still did my exercises every morning. I thought I would share this with my favorite Yogi. Keith
Thank you so much Keith and this is truly a wonderful testimonial to the importance of breathing and yoga in general. It is you that put the work in and ge the credit which is admirable. Glad it was a short lived reaction. Mine is due next week.. i may wait another week.. we’ll see. 💖💖
Thanks and best wishes. My wife and other son got their boosters this past week. I stayed in quarantine a few extra days to make sure they had. As for the breathing, as a former high school athlete, I was taught to breath in through the nose and out through the mouth. In yoga, since the exertion is more holds and stretches, I breath in and out through my nose. That has helped immensely on more natural breathing when I sleep and am not exercising. I have wondered if this is why some heavier former athletes may have more sleep apnea problems.
You’re so welcome Keith! Good for you. I’m a bit under the weather and supposed to get boosted Mon but I think I’ll switch it. Breathing truly expands the lungs and feeds cells etc so it’s entirely possible!❤️💕
I love a compelling short poem and yours is so beautifully visual, where each picture helps further the emotive impact! Congratulations on becoming a monthly contributor too; I cannot wait to read your future creations.
Oh thank you so much Jaya! I truly appreciate your insight and reflections on my piece. That’s truly helpful. Thanks you so much for your wishes as well. I am looking forward to it and so happy you are looking forward to it as well!
It’s so beautiful 💖
