My Yoga Partner

Since I can remember, I tend to do workouts on my own.  I did have a running partner for awhile, then she moved.  Otherwise, I just work out at the gym by myself-at home alone-and walking Ode alone.  I love my time with Ode, just her and I walking, enjoying that "present" moment.  If my husband is home, having him join us on the walk is a bonus.  Since I started back into yoga, I still find myself working out alone.  Honestly, I am completely okay with that. 

I recently met Rachael, another yogi.  I love that she wants a yoga buddy, she calls to see if I want to join her at a class.  I love talking about the class after, especially because I am usually on a yoga high.  Well, that is what I call it, I feel so amazing, and full of energy!

If there are days where I am alone, I just want you to know, I AM REALLY NOT ALONE!  Seriously!  Here is who I worked out with yesterday for an hour.
He was like this, RIGHT next to me the whole time.  His name is Tuki, which means Sweetness, and is the perfect name for this beautiful boy! 

I remember reading Cesar Milan's (The Dog Whisperer's) books, when I found Ode.  The one thing I loved reading, is working towards having a calm and submissive animal.  Let me tell you, that is all my cats, so calm and peaceful.  My dog, WELL that is another story.....

When I am doing the floor poses, especially Savasana, I feel little feet come on my chest.  My Juno, A.K.A. June/Junebug/Junie, she is my precious angel, and sooooo social.

She always wants to help in different poses, AND she has even sat on my lap during meditation.  I love that about her!

Do you enjoy a workout buddy, or are you one that tends to workout alone?

This is Paco, he will be 18 in August!  I celebrate his life everyday!!
