30-Day Yoga Challenge with Angie Eats Peace

Right after I posted about getting back to my yoga practice, Angie over at Angie Eats Peace posted that she was doing a 30-day yoga challenge.  While I wasn't ready to commit to doing an hour of yoga for 30 straight days I was willing to challenge myself to doing some form of yoga or stretching every day.  I managed 27 of the 30 days. 

One day I decided it was more important to take the dog (she's very old) through her stretching/joint manipulation, one day I was simply super exhausted and one day I had had such a bad day at work that I went to bed early without doing several things I really should have. 

A few times I did nothing more than lay with my feet up on the wall while I gave the dog her pre-bedtime attention.  I won't say that this challenge changed my view of yoga. I already know how beneficial it is.  I also won't say that it made drastic differences in how I felt physically.  But I will say that I know the nightly stretches (on days when I didn't go to yoga class) were good for me and I plan to keep doing them.

My biggest challenge...every. single. time.
My downward facing dog was more downward facing A dog!!

Thanks to Angie for the prompt. I'm glad I did it.


  1. 27 out of 30 is amazing! I haven't been practicing at all but finally decided it was time to get back on my mat this week. I went to a class on Tuesday and felt so great afterward that I'm recommiting myself to one day a week, at least!

    1. I wish I could say I stuck with it...sadly, aside from substitute teaching a few classes I haven't done much since. I'm glad you are back into it!


I love hearing from you!
