Yoga Day 8-13

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 😀

Yoga Day 1

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!
