November Yoga Challenge (part 2)

I hope everyone is enjoying part 1 of the yoga challenge.

For part 2, we’ll be stepping things up a bit and making them a bit more challenging.

Part 2 will start on November 11 and run through to November 20, inclusive, so keep on having fun with part 1 until then 🙂

To spare you from the awful YouTube video from part 1, I’ve made a video featuring me (yikes!). This was the first time I’ve ever tried to film myself and it’s not perfect – my head it cut off when I’m standing (whoops!) but this was take three and I didn’t feel like doing a fourth take (hopefully I’ll have that sorted for part 3). Merlin makes a few appearances in the video and I nearly fall on my head attempting to fix a grippie yoga sock (it was COLD in my condo), but other than that, I think it turned out okay.

Before the video, this is how part two will go:

  • 5 Sun Salutations
  • Warrior one – hold for 45 seconds on each leg
  • Warrior two – hold for 45 seconds on each leg
  • Crescent lunge – hold for 45 seconds on each leg

In case any of the descriptions in the video were unclear, here are some pictures and explanations from my new favourite yoga app: All-in Yoga. If you’re looking to make yoga a regular part of your fitness routine, this app has demos of over 300 yoga poses and 45 pre-made yoga routines from beginner to advanced. For the $5 price tag, I highly recommend it!

    • I’m normally a pretty big perfectionist, but I really enjoy yoga because I don’t feel pressure to be “good” at it. If you fall out of a pose, get back in. If you can’t do the pose, modify it. I feel like there’s really no judgement in yoga and I really like it that way. 🙂

      Haha, yeah, the anatomy diagrams are a little creepy, aren’t they?!
