//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.jsMy fellow Team Stonyfield runner Angela at Happy Fit Mama invited me to join in prAna’s & Sweat Pink’s Take the Leap 30 Days of Yoga Challenge. We were both mentioning how we’ve gotten out of our yoga habits, both miss it and feel our bodies crave it. This challenge works because you don’t have to do a full 90 minute practice each day or anything like that, just taking 5 minutes to go through a few sun salutations counts. And it makes all the difference in how your body/brain feels! A bonus: Participants of the challenge can win $500 worth of prAna gear and / or gets to gift $500 worth of prAna gear to one lucky winner. I don’t own any prAna gear, but I’ve looked at their site from time-to-time and thought they had plenty of great-looking options. The challenge started on February 2, which I had inadvertently done yoga that day without even knowing I’d been invited until later that day! Woo hoo… nothing like starting out right on track! Angela even had a little mad lib on our site about yoga and I replaced her bolded words with my bolded words:
When I think about yoga, the first thought that comes to mind is PEACE. Yoga STRENGTHENS me and makes me feel SERENE. That’s why I am DETERMINED to participate in prAna’s Take The Leap 30 days of Yoga Challenge with Sweat Pink. I plan to BREATHE my way to a more FLUID and STRONG 2015! For me, the biggest challenge when it comes to yoga is SCHEDULE. Taking the Leap with prAna and Sweat Pink is a great way for me to find BRIEF ME MOMENTS. My favorite place to yoga is STUDIO because it is so PEACEFUL.
I believe you could still join the challenge:
- Join the Take the Leap with PrAna and Sweat Pink Facebook Page and the event page.
- Join the challenge on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or your blog (if you have one)
- Use the hashtags #TaketheLeap #prAna #SweatPink and tag @prana, @fitapproach when you post
I took my first yoga class in college back in 1996 and I loved it, it helped me keep my head clearer. I did yoga every day in my apartment when I got home from work when I got my first job post-college in Salt Lake City. After that I’ve taken yoga classes intermittently when available, but always tried to make time to do a yoga practice or two each week on my own until I got pregnant with #AwesomeA. She’s nearly 2 1/2, it’s time to get this back in order! It helps that since I downloaded this app and did the poses with my daughter, she asks to do them nearly every night before bed.
She first tried yoga about 5 months ago:
She’ll be an old pro before long!
