The month started out strong as I was just getting back to school with a new course timetable which made it easy to find a time to do yoga everyday. Unfortunately that ideal time was during my nighttime routine, which also meant that some days I was just so tired I didn't want to do it.
I started a yoga Pinterest board to compile beginner yoga positions and stretches (because I had no idea what I was doing) and within a few days I had come up with my own sequence that I stuck with for the month.
The results? Although I was starting from square one with zero flexibility, the positions became a lot easier by the end of the month! Yes, I can touch my toes with ease now! Doing yoga has also helped with my bad posture and back issues which were a result of a typical student lifestyle (sitting at a desk for hours on end). Now I have a handful of not-so-beginner yoga moves that I'd like to learn! On to phase two!
My next challenge is to master two-person yoga positions! Have you seen any YouTubers try to do couples yoga? It's hilarious to watch! Yoga with two people requires a lot of balance and strength - it's all about counterweight! Cory and I tried to do a few two-person yoga pins we saw... let's just say that experience involved me falling down a lot. I'm not going to set a one-month challenge deadline for this one - we'll see how long it takes!
I challenge you to try yoga for a month!
