Yoga Check-In

It is not easy finding some time for yoga EVERY day especially when your shifts are different each day and physically and mentally you are challenged to your limits. I understand that yoga can be a cure for that – turning the problems and stress off and just surrender.

Over this hectic weekend when all kinds of things happened I could not make time for it. I felt guilt because I kind of “lost” the challenge right at the first week.

But then I realized I can’t lose with yoga. It is about doing more exercise, yes but not just that: it is about getting back to myself at least for that 15-40 minutes. I only missed two days but I was already very eager to get back to the mat today and do the next bit. In fact I completed two videos.

That’s what I like about my personal yoga instructor (yoga with Adrienne) the flexibility and the encouragement to forgive ourselves and be ourselves and do the best we can. That must be enough.

Are you participating in 30 days of yoga? What are your experiences?


30 days ‘Yoga with Adrienne’ Challenge

I found a great way to start the new year.

As many people, I guess, I’ve eaten far too much and done no exercise at all in the last couple of weeks. Check out this challenge and get into a daily routine of yoga/exercising. You can find free yoga videos (all levels welcome) on youtube every single day for 30 days and it’s starting today. Luckily with yoga there is always space for flexibility so I’m starting my journey on Sunday the 4th of January.

If January is not your month you can do it in February or in mid March. Doesn’t matter when you start it or whether you stick to these videos or interchange them with others or go to a live yoga class, the only thing important is that you “find what feels good” for the new year.

Happy 2015!
