I am a SWAN.

A couple of days ago I too a 'yoga personality test' (yall may or may not know that I am a born again yoga fanatic), I am still thinking about what the results showed:

you are the swan

you are a stable, steady and calm, and seek peace in your relationships and world.

when life is in balance - you are loving, forgiving, and devoted. by far, the most compassionate of the three.

when life is out of balance - you can be stagnate and lethargic, which can lead to weight gain. (so right!)

though you are drawn to a slow steady practice, which brings out the best in you - you may also want to try a more invigorating, heated practice to balance you, like bikram or power yoga. you should avoid a practice that is too sedate, opting for a more dynamic approach either in breath, asana, or preferably - both.

your challenge is to tap into a powerful energy moving the prana throughout the body. try starting each day with a series of 5 sun a and 5 sun b salutations, beginning and ending with bastrika or kalabati breath to build heat, cleanse and energize the digestive system.
avoid spicy foods like mexican or indian - and be sure to eat lighter breakfasts and dinners, saving big meals for lunch. try raw fruits and vegetables. drink hot water, with lemon juice and ginger in the morning.


I don't know about doing the series of 5 sun saluations a and be in the morning.. with baby Zazou my plans are not always the ones that come first..

Hey Lala!
Thanks for visiting my blog :)
It was my first experience at Moksha today... it was very detoxifying and the studio is BEAUTIFUL. Can't really afford their prices though to be a regular and not too sure if "hot yoga" is for me. :) I may try their karma class every other Friday, but I guess I'm still a fan of BreathingSpace :)
Blessings!

(ps- your blog looks fun! I have no idea how to do all the computer-y stuff- kudos!)

Awww you're a Swan!! Fantastic!

I would probably be....a...Old Stick who refuses to bend. LOL...

I need to get back to yoga again. I realize it's so good for your body, I don't know why I stopped.

This is so interesting, I'm not big into yoga, but I love the rush you get from using your body in that fashion.

I wish I was a swan, I imagine I'd rate more like a turtle :)

I love yoga. I don't get to do it very often though. Its kinda hard to do the it with a 1 and 4 year old hanging off of you.

I think I need to take the test. I love yoga but have not practiced in such a long time. I need to start again - adding it to my list.
