Hey! We did it! 4 weeks of yoga down with the Take the Leap yoga challenge! I said no more make up days but I swear this was the fastest week ever and I just didn’t get it done. But I made them up. Only a couple more days in this 30 day yoga challenge from prAna and Fit Approach. Time to finish out strong!
Day 22: Tree pose. This one wasn’t so easy. I couldn’t keep my foot up above my knee so I had to hold it lower.
Day 23: Cat pose. I really like this one! Great back stretch.
Day 24: Side plank. My arm wasn’t perfectly straight but it’s holding me up…
Day 25: Dolphin pose. I really like downward dog but this one looked trickier with the forearms down. Totally doable though and a great after derby stretch.
Day 26: I have no idea what this is called. I did the hold the leg out to the side pose already so this time I held it to the front. It’s a thing. Google images told me so.
Day 27: I also don’t know the name for this one but I was surprised I got as low as I did.
Day 28: DUDE. You guys. Do you see this? It only took 100 tries but I did the head stand (on a pillow) without touching the wall. For about 3 seconds…ish. But hey! It’s a start!
Here we are at the end of week 3 of the 30 Days of Yoga challenge. Three down, one to go! This week has been a little harder to finish. I did have a few make up sessions after not getting it done the day I needed to. This coming week I hope to finish strong and even continue with the stretching once the #TakeTheLeap challenge is over.
Day 15: Make up day. Still trying to get to feeling better.
Day 16: I saw a version of this pose in a lot of different photos. Took a second to get the balance but I really liked it once I managed to stay up.
Day 17: This one was also hard to keep balance. Down on one knee is nothing…now try to lean back. Not so easy. I do think it looks pretty cool though.
Day 18: This is one of my favorites. It’s hard to hold for the length of the self timer though so it took a few takes. I really should have saved some outtakes to share. Oh well.
Day 19: Chair. As much as I like squats, this one is super hard for me to do any kind of comfortably.
Day 20: Ah, did I already say I have a favorite? Because this is the new fave. Or old fave…either way. I call it dangling but Im sure there’s a fancy yoga name for it. Forward fold maybe. Either way, so nice.
Day 21: Boat. That’s it, right? I hate this one. That’s as straight as I could get my legs. Look at my face! It’s obviously not one I like doing but I can tell I need to do it more often.
There’s week 3. Let’s make this last week count! No catch up days!
Hey! We’ve made it through our second week of the #TakeTheLeap 30 Days of Yoga challenge hosted by Prana and Fit Approach! This week Prana changed it up a bit and threw in an extra little 12 day #BringingYogaBack challenge.
So for those 12 days I’ll try to follow the poses given for that day aside from ones I’ve already done. Starting with this one…
Day 8: This one looks a lot easier than it was (seems to be a common theme with all yoga poses!) My arms just don’t like being told to go behind me.
Day 9: Is this upward facing dog? Much easier and it stretches out my abs that were angry from the day before. A 15 minute ab class is no joke. This day felt good.
Day 10: I was pleasantly surprised when I looked at this photo. I don’t think I used to be able to get my leg up so high and keep everything as straight as it was. Good job newly stretchier self!
Day 11: And then this happened. The low lunge fresh out of a killer roller derby practice. Forget that whole new stretchy self thing….
Day 12: This pose was a lot easier and actually felt pretty good after the failed low lunge from the day before.
Day 13: Womp womp. Death became me this weekend and I was barely able to get out of bed. There was definitely no yoga on Saturday for me.
Day 14: The pose of the day was a downward dog but since I’ve already done that one, and still wasn’t feeling 100% fantastic I took it down a notch and kicked back in child’s pose.
There you have it! Week 2 down. Half way through our 30 days! And want to know something even cooler than that? Prana is sharing a special code with everyone. Use the code psps15BR for 15% off your order at www.prana.com!
