Day 29. FoR the past week, I’ve been slowly recovering from a rotator cuff strain. I know that this was caused by “bad form” during Down Dog, so have spent some time learning the proper rotation of my forearm and upper arm during this inversion (thank you, Kreg Weiss and My Yoga Online). Needless to […]

I’ve been on a bit of vacation for the past week and a half and my challenge has been….challenging. My fiancé is in the military and has a two week block leave and will soon be starting new training which will keep him away from home for about a month and a half so we’ve […]

Ok so blogging is not really something I am great at. My first update for this challenge is really not what I was neither hoping or expecting it to be. When I take a challenge I like to think that I am going to give it my all and that I will do really well […]

It has been a while since i have written here or blogged, which is not to say i have not been practicing. If you remember back when i agreed to the #365 day yoga challenge i mentioned the greatest challenge for me will not necessarily be the actual daily practice but the sharing of the […]

Day 25 of the #365dayyogachallenge! And now its getting to a point of being very interesting. I can see the physical changes in my body as well as the mindfullness that was never there before. My very proud moment so far has been the ability to accomplish the splits (hanumanasana)! I’ve been working on that […]

We’re 23 days into the 365 Day Challenge and it’s definitely been a challenge. Have I practiced asana every day? No. Have I done pranayama, meditation or another form of yoga every day? Not quite. There have been some days that I have not practiced at all, traditionally speaking, so in the eyes of some […]

Today is Day 22 of the 365 day challenge. In the last week, I have experienced the best and worst practices ever. My worst practice came Monday. I had a particularly frustrating day in my personal life, and unfortunately it followed me to the mat. Or maybe I brought it with me. In any case, […]

Hi Yogis and Yoginis! So we have been talking a lot about challenges, what our obstacles have been though this experience. While this is very true, some days will be tough. I want to talk about something different today. Today I want to talk about moments of yoga magic. I am talking about that moment […]
