Yoga Challenge

Yoga must be on my mind, and on the minds of those around me.  That or it’s a conspiracy (another one, cause something similar happened to me just days before) I tell you!

It wasn’t until recently how much I enjoy it.  Not only does it make me feel more grounded and centred, it also makes me more relaxed

After doing two sessions of Bikram Yoga it totally reinforced to me that yoga is an essential part of my workout (and lifestyle) regime.

Now I wish I could do a Bikram yoga at least once a week, but living in the country there are no yoga classes available as it is, let alone a Bikram class. That means I will only be able to do a hot yoga class when I’m down in Melbourne visiting my family.

In the meantime, I will hit up some much-needed stretching at home.

Yoga At Home

  • Namaste Yoga
    Both Season 1 and 2.  I enjoy Namaste yoga, but I find the sessions short, at only only 22 minutes long.  With the ‘intense’ part of the series, being only 12 minutes long. I find that this particular series is good as my post workout stretch.
  • Essence of Living
    I have the Beginners and Intermediate dvd’s.  The last about 50-60 minutes.
  • YogaX
    Which is part of p90x. It goes for 90minutes, and let me tell you, it’s LONG.  It makes Bikram yoga a walk in the park when it comes to length.  I find I have to break this one up into two 45 minute sessions.

Fitness Challenge #1 for July is Yoga.
