Bye, bye March… Throughout the month of March I challenged myself to add flexibility training to my fitness routine by doing yoga for at least 3 hours a week. With an early 15 minute routine this morning I have successfully completed my challenge! After a month of regularly doing yoga I am totally hooked and in love!
I am not quite to this level but one day:)

How the challenge began…
In the past I tried to do yoga either by following a sequence online or watching a video but it was always so boring. I strongly disliked it and was sure yoga was not for me!! Well a little over a month ago I decided to give it another go. This time I skipped the dvds & google searches and went to a yoga class at our gym, let me tell you it was love at first
sight pose. I give all the credit to my instructor, she is amazing by keeping things fresh and challenging.
Where will I go from here…
The only negative aspect of my yoga experience is that I am limited to the type of yoga classes I can attend. Our gym only has Vinyasa and Hatha yoga (and I have yet to find another yoga studio in the our town) but there are other styles of yoga I am very interested in trying. I guess I will just have to wait a few months, then join a yoga studio the moment we get home!
The first class I am signing up for is anti-gravity yoga! This simply looks awesome and cannot wait to try!!!

I also would like to try bikram yoga & hot yoga. My sister-in-law raves about bikram yoga, so it is definietly on my to do list!!

Last but not least, I am praying that we get jobs near water so I can add Stand UP Paddle (SUP) Yoga to my routine!
