I’m not the yoga type. I’m really not. I’ve always been the High Intensity Cardio kind of gal. The idea of breathing deeply in a warrior pose with my eyes closed really didn’t interest me. I like when my heart rate sky rockets and my feet are going nearly as fast as my mind. I love the feeling of pushing through the work out no matter what. And I love how accomplished I feel at the end of a really good HIIT routine.
Yet, here I am, committing to myself (and all of you), to do a Thirty Day Yoga Challenge! Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be doing my normal HIIT or weightlifting routine each and every day, but this month, I want to start my morning with a yoga routine.
September and October are going to be the busiest months yet and I want to make sure I enjoy every second of it! I want to start the day relaxed, refreshed and ready to go. I want my mind to be clear and my heart to be open and I think, if I give yoga a real chance, I might be able to do just that.
So, starting tomorrow, Robert and I will be doing thirty straight days of yoga no matter what! We will be Triangle Posing and Warrior Posing like the best of them. We will be stretching and strengthening our cores, we will be meditating and resting our minds. We will be trying to do everything we can to start each day off on the right foot!
