A new yoga challenge starts May 1st! It also marks my one year anniversary of daily yoga practice! I’ve practiced yoga for years, but not consistently until last May. I’m truly amazed at the progress over the past year, and it all started with a one month yoga challenge. I decided for one month to do yoga every single day, even if it was just a quick 20 minute routine, and it turned into a whole year.
This month’s yoga challenge is all about getting started with yoga, so if you’ve ever been curious or wanted to give yoga a try, I can’t urge you enough to give this challenge a shot.
These daily yoga poses are meant to be done after a practice. You can find tons of free videos on Youtube, and Kino MacGregor, one of the challenge hosts has a bunch of videos for all different levels. One of my favorites is this 30 minute Ashtanga video. (It’s not very difficult, but it does move a little fast if you’re not familiar with yoga.) Here is a great introduction to sun salutations.
If you’re following along with the challenge on Instagram, take a video or picture of the day’s pose and tag #mayibeginyoga2015, and @beachyogagirl and @kinoyoga. They’re going to be giving away prizes to people who participate daily.
Leave a comment below or on Instagram if you’re going to be doing the challenge and leave your Instagram username so I can follow you!
More about the challenge from Kino and Kerri:
It really doesn’t matter what you wear to practice yoga. There is no uniform required. Just get on your mat. There is no right size, shape, age, gender or nationality to practice yoga. All that matters is that you get on your mat, breathe and do the practice. Yoga is a journey and there is no destination. This months challenge is for those who are ready to start a yoga practice. You don’t need to be strong or flexible to start off, all you need is an open heart and a willingness to try. We designed this month’s challenge to be the perfect introduction to yoga, but we want ALL levels to join and share their daily practice.
