Yoga challenge

Today is the fifteenth day of July and I have done yoga every day of the month except for one (I haven’t done it yet today either but I still have some hours left). I missed Friday because I was too sick to even get myself out of bed. So I’m not being too hard on myself about that day. I still think thirteen days in a row of Yoga is pretty dang good! And now I have the rest of the month to keep going!

How’s your challenge going?

Don’t just stop with one little set back keep moving forward!

Yoga challenge

Some of you already know that I practice yoga. I’ve practiced for twenty years and have taught for fourteen of them. Some of those years have had more hours practiced than others. Some of those years I was teaching ten classes a week, six days a week. Now I’ve scaled back to teaching only one or two days a week of outside, donation based yoga in our outside “studio.” Studio is being used VERY loosely here. Well after three and a half years of working a desk job my body is screaming for me to do more yoga. This July I am challenging myself to do yoga every day. I’m on day five because I just couldn’t wait to get started! My body has been feeling it and poses that used to be easy for me are definitely much more challenging. Everything feels heavier and I feel much weaker. But I’m hoping at the end of July this is something I can continue doing regularly.

I would love it if you joined me! Even if it’s not every day. Maybe it’s just a week. Or maybe it’s five minutes of meditation a day.

Today my yoga partner was pretty lazy!

He just laid in Savasana the whole time! Didn’t even do a single downward facing dog. Oh well I guess he was listening to his body!
