My 30-Day Yoga Challenge
Posted on November 3, 2014 by Amy Krasner
Yesterday the first day of my 30-day yoga challenge.
My yoga journey started when I was 15 years old. Since then, yoga has come in and out of my life in waves. The most often that I have ever done yoga is three days in a week. But in general, I take about one class a week. Last week, after not doing yoga for a month, I took my first yoga class. After the class I had so much clarity and positive energy throughout the day. I decided that I wanted to do 30-day yoga challenge.
Now, after not doing yoga more than three times a week in my entire life, I know this is going to be a challenge. In order to hold myself accountable, I decided to tell a few friends and family members about my 30-day challenge. Now I really can’t back out!
My goal with this 30-day challenge is to gain more clarity, to bring more calm into my work life, and to gain more flexibility so that I can advance in my yoga practice.
Have you ever done a 30-day challenge? If not, I highly recommend that you try it. Maybe there is a healthy habit that you have been trying to implement for a long time. Or maybe you are currently doing something that you want to get better at, but you just haven’t been able to dedicate enough time to improve. The truth is that if you put your heart and soul into something for 30 days, you are bound to learn something new about yourself during the process. I have found that a 30-day challenge is a great way to make positive changes and to continuously work on personal development.
Yoga isn’t always easy for me. Sometimes it brings up a lot of emotions and other times it brings up self-judgment. Throughout this process, I plan to keep a journal (something that I have also been thinking about doing for a few years), so that I can really reflect on how I am feeling each day.
During this challenge, I will be taking daily classes at Buddhi Yoga in La Jolla. I also would love to share my yoga practice with friends. I am open to trying new yoga studios around San Diego if you have any recommendations, please share in the comments below.
So, now it’s your turn. What do you plan to commit to for the next 30 days?
