Today’s Essentials

Today is Day 4 of the #TakeTheLeap yoga challenge. I’ve had a really busy week and although my body is feeling tired today, I am actually looking forward to my 30 minutes of yoga. I returned home at 9.30 this morning after taking my son to pre-school, I stepped through the front door and considered what I should do first. Of course the obvious answer would be to clean my kitchen or tackle that pile of laundry, but I’ve decided to abandon my Mummy duties for 30 mins. I’m plugged into Spotify’s Vinyasa Flow playlist & the first thing on my to-do list today is to ‘Salut the Sun’. This yoga thing is really addictive. I’m not sure that I’m even doing all of the poses right, but hey, at least I’m committed. #Day 4 – A for effort!

Day 1 #TakeTheLeap

So today is Day 1 of the prAna yoga challenge. I’m feeling super motivated, I hope that I can keep it up for a whole 30 days. Today I worked on my headstand. Apparently we should all be doing headstands everyday. It’s a great way to improve your upper body strength and work your deep core ab muscles too. During this yoga challenge I have 3 goals. To improve my core strength and posture. To increase flexibly in my back. I have quite flexi legs, but my back is as stiff as wood! To be brave. It’s easy to stick to the poses that feel good. I am going to push myself this month to try the poses that I find most tricky. I’d love to be able to master the ‘Dancers Pose’.
