30 Day Challenge.
Most of you who’ve been on the journey with me, know that I’ve been doing 30 day challenges since turning 40 in September of 2017.
The challenges are meant to push me in ways that I wouldn’t typically push myself.
We are fast approaching May, so it’s time to make the announcement for what my 30 challenge will be for the month of May.
I will be traveling for two weeks during the month of May, therefore, I knew that it would need to be a portable challenge.
I also wanted the challenge to be physical in nature.
With all that in mind, here is the May 30 day Challenge:
30 Day Yoga Pose Challenge
I have only been practicing yoga for a few years. I wrote about how yoga was good for my soul in this post.
When I decided that I wanted to train for a 5k (which I have not participated in as of yet), I needed to open up some time in my schedule for running. I achieved this by cutting out the yoga classes (similar to power yoga) that I had been attending.
Yes, I could have created or found a flow to do at home. Or even completed some rounds of sun salutations. But the fact of the matter is that I didn’t.
I’ve missed my yoga time.
Granted I have stayed physically active with my Pilates classes and have stayed mentally centered with my meditation practice.
However, I’ve been wanting to incorporate more yoga back into my life.
I’ve opted for the yoga pose challenge because I am realistic about the time I have to afford placing anything extra into my life when I am traveling.
If you are interested, I am using this infographic for my challenge. I am not doing the challenge referenced in the article. I will only be completing the daily poses. This is technically a 31 day challenge. May does have 31 days or you could easily squeeze two poses into one day.
As many of you know, I leave Virginia on May 9th and will return on May 22nd.
It’s very likely that I will try to include a photo of me attempting some of the poses on my Instagram stories.
I pack lightly so we’ll have to see if there’s room for workout clothes that I’d be willing to share publicly.
As much as it may appear that I like the limelight because I have a blog and share things on Instagram, you will not find my poses being performed in front of some beautiful tourist attraction.
Sorry to disappoint you.
Once we make it to the UK, the only way you’ll see the pose outside of the hotel room is if we’ve found a semi-remote place to achieve a photo…even then, some may not be shared.
…and try not to laugh too hard if, instead of a graceful swan, my poses look like an injured chicken.
I’d love for you to join along on this 30 days yoga pose challenge. Or any other yoga pose challenge that you find that you might enjoy.
Are you in?
Let me know!
Let your light shine!
