Announcing: The 2014 Yoga Every Damn Day Challenge.
It's time for a new challenge! The #yogaeverydamnday challenge has been ongoing since January 1, 2013 and it's open to all. I want us all to go back to what's at the core of any yoga practice: to practice every single day. I want you to find the joy of living your yoga, on and off the mat, and to remember that yoga is not a pose but a practice! This does not mean you have to take a full sweaty 90-minute class every day (feel free if you like!), but that you incorporate yoga into your life somehow, every single day of this month. This can mean a home practice, stretching before bed, breathing exercises, whatever counts as a practice to YOU. Log your practice on the challenge site online, and post a picture here on Instagram tagging #yogaeverydamnday (please take pictures after your practice is over, and it can be everything from a picture of your yoga mat to you in a pose to the sky to... Anything that inspires you to practice). This is real. This is your body. This is your breath. This is NOW. Cherish your time on the mat and embrace the little sparks of magic that are present all around us, all the time.
Anti gravity yoga this morning. I really enjoy the inversions being suspended from the hammock. Over the next couple of weeks we will move up to the next stage which is aerial yoga 1. Really looking forward to this.
Today I took the next step in my practice and sent off my application for a 500 hour yoga teachers course. If I get accepted it will be 12 months of pretty intensive study but the end result will be well worth it. Trying to apply some of that yoga non-attachment to the outcome but I am hoping for the best.
