November Yoga Challenge

Well, it’s December which means my self challenge of 30 days of yoga is over. So how did it go? For starters, I am so glad I didn’t promise myself that I’d do full practices or even commit to a set amount of time because freeing myself up meant I was free to do as much or as little as I wanted or needed.

I started off doing full workouts from Youtube prenatal yoga videos. Then I looked for the shortest ones. Then I modified even further and just did the poses I felt like I needed. About halfway through the month I started having a lot of back pain. It wasn’t very severe, but it was uncomfortable and I felt like I was out of alignment so I did a lot of cat and cow and thread the needle poses to try to relieve some of the pressure.

This span of doing a few poses was most of the month, honestly. Towards the end I did feel up to lengthier work and videos, but if I’d tried to do 30 days of yoga that way I’d definitely have failed.

As it is I could have done better, but I could have done worse. I didn’t take a lot of pictures because most of the time I was either raggedy from just waking up or raggedy from a full day of work.

I’ll leave you with a few of my favorite yoga videos from the month.


I liked this one because it focused on back and shoulders, which is where I’m sorest lately.


I love, love, loved this one because it was challenging but also just fun to do.

 

So what’s up for December? Pretty much just getting through the holidays still working on working out and walking my dogs and trying really hard not to eat all the cookies I’m offered.
