Another 30 day challenge?
This one you will thank me for…. I mean it.
First off, I have to thank my daughter Abbey for telling me about this one.
Most of us, especially in the areas of the country, well let’s face it, there isn’t a lot of our country (Canada) that has mild temperatures in the winter, so we’re all in the same boat here. There are a lot of other places on this big blue planet that are experiencing the same shift this time of year. It is just kind of hard to get out some days. The days are shorter. The temperatures are colder and to go back out after work isn’t always appealing.
So I turn to the internet!
Not for Netflix this time!
If you want a half hour of really great Yoga, give this 30 day challenge a try. Yoga with Adriene is just what I was looking for. Now you may be wondering, why do you need a video if you’re a teacher? Well, sometimes it is just nice to have someone else guide you through a practice. Adriene is a lovely young woman who surprisingly doesn’t teach a boot camp style of Yoga, which I just do not want for myself. One thing we have to remember about our practice is that it is for you. Not for the person next to you in class or your friend who can do a headstand for 15 minutes.
This 30 day challenge starts very gently; easing you into a practice so it is perfect for beginners as well as well seasoned Yogis. She guides you through the basics and works up to more advanced poses, but don’t let that scare you, she gives wonderful alternatives for those who are not quite ready.
I am half way through this 30 day challenge and have no problem fitting it into my day. This one you can do even before you go to bed and it won’t get you all pumped up like some do. You will gain strength and flexibility throughout this 30 day challenge and it will give you a wonderful foundation to build on your own practice.
So before you turn on the Netflix or the Food Network, go to You Tube and check out Yoga with Adriene‘s 30 day Challenge. She also has many other videos on there if you want to check them out! It will be just the relief you need from the craziness of the Holiday season! Take of yourselves!
