30 days of Yoga

My fellow blogger and buddy Jess, over at Paleo Jess, tagged me on Instagram the other day about a 30 day yoga challenge.  I headed straight over to DoYouYoga and checked it out...and promptly signed up.  Today was day 2.  Even though I've done yoga at home for several years, this is different from what I've done in the past.  The daily emailed videos are about 20 mins (at least the past 2 have been).  The instructor gives good cues, which are easy to follow.  She also doesn't rush things (which I've experienced with some other videos).

I knew my flexibility was pretty limited, but this is certainly highlighting how limited my range is.  Day 1 was hip openers, Day 2 was chest and shoulder openers. These are 2 areas that need major work.  Right now I can't even do an overhead squat because my shoulder mobility is so poor.  I may also go back and do Day 1 again, just because the hip openers hurt so good.

Anyway, I thought I'd share with all of you.  If you like yoga already, if you're a beginner or looking for a place to start, head over and check out the 30 Day Challenge linked above.

I've done the hip opener one each day this week (all of 3 days) because I am so tight. I live it and its great for my beginner status lol
