I’ve seen too many 30 day challenges at yoga studios and have never taken part in them mainly because I have my own home practice and I give myself at least a day off. Plus, 30 days of non-stop hot power yoga would not be healthy for someone like me who is already much of a “yang” person. One to two days off is the balance or “yin” that my body needs. Lately however, I’ve been stuck in a rut with my asana practice. Between late nights, chores, and subbing a class or two (on top of my already full teaching schedule) each week in October, the only asana I wanted to do was savasana. Ok even skip savasana and go straight to “plop on the bed” pose.
For November I am challenging myself to 3 different challenges. The first challenge is to do 30 days of yoga, 5-6 of which will be power yoga and the remainder will be a restorative, yin, or another style of yoga. The second is to motivate the hubby to join. He has completely lost his practice and needs to revive it. The third, the most important, is to have 30 days of gratitude.
While googling for something one day, I stumbled across a 30 days of gratitude challenge and thought it was so timely for November. I consider myself a pretty grateful person, but sometimes it’s tough to remember the little things I am grateful for especially when my life seems like a tornado in action.. but these are the times that I need to remember it the most! So here I go!
