What have we been up to?
If you have been following us on Facebook or Instagram, I’m sure you have seen our monthly challenges! The main hosts from Instagram have been Kino Yoga & Beach Yoga Girl. We started in February with an Inversion Challenge hosted by Kino Yoga, and realized how much fun inversions are. March was the Backbend Challenge and really helped us open up our hips and improved our back flexibility. Today closed out the Yoga to the Core April Challenge! The great thing about these challenges are that they keep you accountable and on track to practice a little or a lot of yoga each day! Sometimes you think you can just do your pose of the day and move on, but most of the time you really need to warm up the body which turns into more minutes of practicing yoga 🙂 Your body opens more and more each day you practice, and it’s fun to see yourself get into some poses that at the initial look of them seem impossible. But that’s the great part, most everything is possible in Yoga! If you don’t get it that day or month, you might surprise yourself the next time you try it. Patience and practice is key.
Are you ready to join in on the fun?
May Challenge – There’s TWO this month!! Pick one and stick with it! OR if you’re feeling crazy and want to do both, more power to ya!
We are following one of our favorite yogi – BeachYogaGirl – for this month’s challenges. The first one is May I Begin Yoga, which will be for ALL of our followers to introduce beginner yoga poses to anyone willing to try! We will be posting the poses on Instagram as well as getting more inspiration from @BeachYogaGirl. We would love to have everyone at least try this one out with us! Our second challenge is hosted by @Beach_Yoga_Girl and is a handstand challenge for all those wanting to break their fear of getting into a handstand or trying to work their way off of the wall into a handstand (like us!!).
