90 Day Yoga Challenge: Days 11-14

We are two weeks into this challenge! And it couldn't have come at a better time. It's so blisteringly hot here in San Antonio, Texas, I am seeking out refreshing and cooling yoga practices.

However, today I decided to kick it up a notch and try my hand at "Yoga Sculpt" with my mentor, Maria Shamas (via YouTube video). I'm usually not a fan of incorporating words like "sculpt", "weight loss," or "torch" with my yoga practice, but I trusted Maria, and she did not lead me astray. Because she is well-versed in functional yoga, anatomy, and physiology, her yoga with weights offering did not hurt me or encourage me to take on more weight or go faster than I was ready for. I started with 2 lb weights, some resistance bands, and the remote control to pause and take a drink of water when I needed to.

Forty minutes later, we ended with my favorite mudra (hand gesture), garuda mudra and I felt much better than I did before I started.

My schedule is all over the place. Some days I go in at 9 AM, some days (like today) I go in at 3 PM. Some days I work 12 hour days, other days I work 6 hours. Summer is a crazy train at a theme park and I'm so grateful for my yoga practice to keep me grounded in all of this chaos.

How are you doing now that we're two weeks in to our challenge together? Comment below.
