Anyone that does yoga knows that there are yoga poses you love and yoga poses you hate. I prefer to think positive so here are my favorites.
I took the long road to really discovering yoga. Really discovering because I gave it a couple tries over the last couple years but it never stuck. The first time I ever did yoga, I went to a yoga class with my mom at the local community center, we went once. I remember feeling like all that breathing was going to make me faint and being bored. I wasn’t ready for yoga yet.
Fast forward a couple years. I started the P90x program and part of the program was yoga. I finished the P90x program and was able to see a real change in balance when doing the yoga, yet still yoga was the afterthought of the program.
Full discloser, I am a Beachbody Coach and I have only ever finished two programs. P90x as mentioned above, long before I became a coach and the 3 Week Yoga Retreat last October. It’s not because I don’t like the other programs I do, I just absolutely love yoga. While I was completing the 21 days of yoga, I found myself looking forward to yoga everyday. In 21 days, I was hooked. I now crave that place I go into when I am focused on my breathing and feeling myself go deeper in poses than before.
Eighteen days ago I challenged myself to 30 days of yoga. I chose 30 days because; one, a month of yoga sounded nice and two, research shows that it takes 66 days to form a new habit. So 30 days seemed like a good jumping off point.
