What I thought of the 30 Day Yoga Challenge!

Kickin it with Erin Motz!

So now that I have some time to breathe and reflect, here it is!

When I was told not to run until my surgery, I was feeling kind of down.  I  knew I had to keep moving somehow!

I hopped on the interwebs and searched diligently.

It was then that I saw Erin Motz’s 30 Day Yoga Challenge.  It said “Hey, pick me!”

Every morning I would roll out of my bed and fling out my mat.  Erin was happy and real.

Because I have an injury, I had to modify my poses.  I picked a nice spot in my bedroom where I had access to furniture and walls in case I fell over during my knee “give out” moments.

I was pleasantly surprised about how sweaty I was at the end of each session 🙂

These are not super long sessions, which is another bonus.  It allowed me to get my yoga in before getting ready to start my day.  If I really enjoyed the session, I would sometimes do it again at night.  Because YOGA.

One of the things I really enjoyed were the restorative days.  As in the photo above, there were days set aside for muscles we all forget about.  The wrists and hands are important!

I also enjoyed the days focused on the lower backs and hip openers.  As a runner, these days were awesome!!

I can say that there are many moves that I was not able to do, and wish there had of been a sidebar for a slow progression into Crow Pose or a Headstand.

At the end

All in all, I really enjoyed this challenge!  Would definitely recommend for anyone who has been doing some yoga 🙂

Has anyone else done this challenge?  What did you think?  Any others you would like to share?
