This past week was finals week, so I did not repeat this sequence at all! I took my yoga vacation day unlike other weeks since I felt the need for a break. I liked switching up some of the order of the past sequences to integrate the new poses, it made for a refreshing start to my days before taking final exams.
This week added three poses with similar lower body postures to bring the sequence up to ten minutes. I had done these poses before this challenge (unlike most of the previous poses), and it was nice to incorporate them into this month of yoga. I could definitely feel a nice stretch after doing the whole sequence, but I didn’t have many opportunities this week to repeat any of it. Every day, I got closer to getting my heels to the floor during downward dog and getting my hands on the ground during standing forward extension (uttanasana). Even though to 30 day challenge suggests taking days 7 and 14 as vacation days, I took day 7 as a day to look at the poses added on day 8 and make sure I had them down. Today, day 14, I did the whole sequence twice since I hadn’t repeated at all during days 8-13. Aside from yoga, the fall semester is winding down as I prepare to take exams next week. Hope everyone’s school/work is going well as we continue this holiday season with Christmas 😀
Hello readers, this is Brittany! So the yoga today was a real quick sequence made up of two poses: Tadasana (mountain) and Urdhva Hastasana (arms overhead). I liked how much the site elaborated on the kind of posture to have for the mountain pose and the transition to arms overhead. It was a relaxing way to start off my day. I went to my first football game on campus today, and it was our homecoming game (so we won pretty easily) 🙂 . My roommate’s family was in town, so they took us to a nice Mexican restaurant after the game. They were great, and it was a nice night out. Looking forward to adding more poses to the yoga sequence!
So I (Brittany) found a 30 day yoga challenge for beginners on Pinterest. I really enjoy yoga, and I’ve tried a couple sequences before. I feel like this challenge will make yoga more of a routine for me. Loki and I are going to start it tomorrow, following these instructions: http://act3.hubpages.com/hub/Practicing-Yoga-at-Home-A-30-Day-Yoga-Challenge . We’ll try to post everyday how it goes, along with some daily updates with all the holidays and final exams coming up. Hope you enjoy if you join us 🙂
