|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?
