I started a routine a couple weeks ago that I think I mentioned the other day (?). It’s my yoga or book before bed routine and I’m not sure what took me so long to get into this – it’s like a freaking sanity saver!
Each night about 30-45 minutes before I plan to be asleep, I either roll out my yoga mat or climb in bed and read (or both). It’s become another way for me to focus on myself and end the day on a positive and uplifting note. I’m definitely going to try to keep this up, especially with some pretty hectic months ahead.
And then yesterday Lauren announced her August yoga challenge – 20 minutes everyday.
When I first heard about YogaDownload.com, I was excited for a way to start “learning” yoga without being with other yogis. I was afraid of going to a studio and standing out like a sore thumb for being such a newb who didn’t know what they were doing. As I’ve gone to several studios the past couple years, I’ve learned that no one’s judging you; everyone is there for their own growth and their own practice.
Now I use YogaDownload podcasts as a way to literally “take yoga anywhere” or anytime. It’s an easy way to save money on something that could cost a lot. It’s a way to remember that it’s okay if all you have time for is 20 or 30 minutes. And it’s a way to remember to take time for yourself.
So Lauren, I’m in! Yoga everyday in August. Who wants to join?
