I thought I better give a little update on how my yoga streak is going. And it is going well!
Day 1: I spent a lot of time researching yoga. Looking up what I want to achieve, and how to get there. I downloaded a couple of ebooks, Jessica Aolie’s #letsstartyoga and Morgan De Young’s Ab’Asanas.
I decided I need a couple of goals. Vague goals of getting faster, or sustaining my surfing life, was not going to cut it. I want goals that I can see. I decided that one will be the King Pigeon pose.
I eased into my yoga streak of watching (and completing) this Yoga with Adriene Hip Opener video. (Do they call them videos? I have no idea!)
Day 2: I kept up my yoga streak. I completed a few stretches, watched a YouTube video of Yoga with Adriene – Yoga For Tired Legs. I then went into trying the pigeon pose and king pigeon.
Day 3: Looked for more videos. I have to say, YouTube is amazing. Now, I know a class with an instructor helping would be a lot better, but for those with no money, the internet is wonderful! So many yoga videos right at your finger tips. I stumbled across Boho Beautiful, and did an Easy Yoga for Beginners video.
Right now I am trying to keep all my yoga to stretching and relaxing. I have a few marathons coming up, so I’m trying not to try anything too crazy before they are done.
Day 4: I wasn’t feeling the best. Tired and lethargic. I did a few stretches earlier in the day, but I ended it with a bedtime yoga session. I felt so good after this! It was amazing – ready for bed!
Day 5. I woke up feeling like I needed to stretch. So I put on this YouTube video.
I also did a few sequences from the ebook, #letsstartyoga to help me with my king pigeon pose…. And of course, the lovely headstand.
