21 Day Yoga Challenge, Week 1
So last week in my Summer To-Do and To-Be List I mentioned I would do a 21 Day Yoga Challenge, which began Monday this week. The first 4 days went really well , I did a mix of classes from DoYogaWithMe.com and from Yoga Journal’s videos.
I have really enjoyed the grounding effects; yoga is such an excellent way to slow down, and get out of your head and into your body instead. I also love how my body feels all stretched out and flexible I feel afterwards.
My favourite class so far has been Breath,Balance and Twists as I adore balance exercises and twists.
On the down side, during one of my favourite twists Friday I suddenly experienced really bad pelvic cramps (thanks endometriosis) and had to retire to the couch with a hot water bottle for the rest of the night. Since then I have been a little frightened and only did a few light poses yesterday as I am still struggling with cramps. Will continue with the challenge though!
