90 Day Yoga Challenge - Days 8-10

My yoga practice these past three days has been really eclectic. I love mixing things up. People who know me know that I'm always restless, and that I never want to be doing the same thing or stuck in the same place for too long. I see that reflected in how I approach my yoga challenge.

On Monday I took a class at the gorgeous Pure Prana Path studio in San Antonio, Texas. The owner taught the class and he led a challenging but trauma-informed invitational practice. I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with this studio. So many studios in San Antonio are based in the power yoga/hot yoga traditions. I have no qualms about these traditions, as it's where I started my yoga path. But I'm now looking for therapeutic, gentler yoga. And PPP delivered!


On Tuesday, I started the day with my Yoga Kriya, and then met my dear friend Corina for a Cardio Dance Party. I took it easy with the yoga today since I knew I would be sweating and dancing with her. It's all about balance!


And today, I returned to my favorite online yoga teacher, Maria Shamas who led me in a 40 minute sequence focused on the posterior chain. Hello hamstrings!

Yoga definitely helps my sleep. And the wonderful thing about yoga videos is you can take breaks, you can go at your own pace, and really listen to your body. Yay!

Day 11 and I did my own practice again using what I've learned. I am dealing with a high ankle sprain (missed a stair taking out garbage yesterday) but I found a solid set to do that still worked my body and mind. So satisfying! Injury is no obstacle! Happy Saturday, ladies! Keep up your self care!

I love that you've found a way to your mat despite your injury! Yoga is such a great tool for healing.

Day 10... ready for a fun weekend ahead before going back to work Monday after summer break. I'm focusing this weekend on getting my mind ready to keep my yoga practice going once I'm back to the routine of work. Every little bit counts when you take time for yourself in any part of your yoga practice. We all need to remind ourselves that we are worth it! Let's go, ladies!

"Every little bit counts" - you are so right! Once you're back on your work schedule, you'll see how those little moments you take for yourself can help you manage the stress of work. Great job!

Day 9... I am feeling more confident to branch out on my own movements when practicing with a video. I am trying to keep my mind focused on how good I feel after practicing so that I don't fall off the wagon. I am really hoping to keep this up! I am worth the commitment to myself!

Keep it going, ladies!

I never regret the time I spend on my mat. I may not enjoy the "before", I may struggle with the "during", but savasana and the feeling after my practice is unbeatable.

What a day 8! I did my first full video class for 36 minutes. I've taken what I've learned and practiced the last week and was able to follow mostly by her voice, only needing to check the screen here and there to see if I had the right idea of what to do. I modified to the simpler poses for a few, but put in the full time. It was tiring but exhilarating! I'm going to sleep like a log tonight. Sounds like a wonderful place you've found, Natalie. Keep it up, ladies!
