I’ve recently heard a lot of buzz about the 30 Day Yoga Challenge. I’m not entirely sure how it originated or where’s the best resource to get the info, but with a little googling, I’m thinking it’s basically yoga every day for a month, in some way shape and form. Which doesn’t seem bad at all!
However, with my already intense exercise routine, I think I’ll find it hard to manage doing yoga daily as well. But it seems that this “challenge” as they call it isn’t a HUGE commitment. I’ve been hearing 15 minutes a day works.
I still consider myself a novice yogi, although I tend to gravitate towards workouts labeled intermediate or even advanced. I do p90x 6 days a week and one of those days is a yoga day, which I’ve fallen in love with! I hated it at first, mostly because it was harder than I’d expected (and I’m flexible!) and it didn’t give me the burn of a usual cardio or strength training workout. But over the past few months as I’ve settled into a routine that includes yoga at least once a week, I’ve started loving it, especially how I was becoming more flexible, intune with my body, relaxing, and generally just feeling better now that I had become a yogi (such a great word)
So here’s my challenge for myself: add more yoga into the mix!
I won’t say I’m going full 30 days because I workout daily anyways, but adding 15 minutes or a half hour here and there can’t hurt and it certainly will help improve my yoga skills and flexibility, methinks
I set off now on my own personal yoga challenge. I want to build more of a yoga skill set, gain more flexibility, and enjoy more of the perks that yoga brings!
OH! And please please please feel free to suggest yoga resources! I really only switch between 2-3 different yoga workouts and I’d like to get more variety. Maybe I’ll even try hot yoga this month…seems the right time to try it! Other yoga tips and suggestions are gladly welcome 🙂
