30 Days of Yoga: Interval

Yesterday was officially the halfway mark and I completely forgot! Today I spent a good deal of time packing for the move. I really need to declutter properly one of these days and I want to read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up during December and January so I can sort myself out for… Continue reading 30 Days of Yoga: Interval

30 Days of Yoga: Day 15

Another long day but it didn't stop me from doing yoga! We went to go see the kennels where my doggos will be staying while we're on holiday and my lovely boyfriend took me to Jungle Juice in the evening for a freshly made fruit smoothie. I got my yoga in before bed again and… Continue reading 30 Days of Yoga: Day 15

30 Days of Yoga: Day 14

What. A. Day. Wrote my last exam today and I am so happy to be done with them! We also went to look at cars, to see some family friends with the dogs, and then finally to Global Village because my family hasn't been there before. By the time we got home I was absolutely… Continue reading 30 Days of Yoga: Day 14

30 Days of Yoga: Day 13

Nearly at the two week mark already. Today's practice went well. I was bit rushed because I've been a bit anxious and distracted again, but I managed to get it done. I can really feel a huge difference in my arms and legs already. This video also included a shoulder opener so that was great.… Continue reading 30 Days of Yoga: Day 13

30 Days of Yoga: Day 12

Second exam done! This was a morning exam so I took a nap pretty much immediately afterwards and then went out for dinner. Naturally my yoga only happened at night. Again. I really am a night owl it seems.  Surprisingly I didn't really have any aches or too many cracks today. I really focused on… Continue reading 30 Days of Yoga: Day 12

30 Days of Yoga: Day 11

Ah goodness. Today was my first uni exam!!! It went pretty well but I was really glad when it was over. Yoga is an excellent stress relief during exam time. Today was pretty difficult on my pelvis and there was a lot of clicking involved. I ended up needing to roll my back out with… Continue reading 30 Days of Yoga: Day 11

30 Days of Yoga: Day 10

10 days already? That's a third of the challenge completed! This is also the day I stopped at last time I did this video series, so it feels great to pass that milestone. I underestimated this 30 day beginner's challenge and previously thought I could manage to do two of these videos per day and… Continue reading 30 Days of Yoga: Day 10

30 Days of Yoga: Day 9

So I've been studying a lot more now that exams are near and yoga is a welcome break. Day 9 was much the same as the day before. Downward dog keeps getting easier by the day and I can almost touch my heels down completely. My shoulders are still pretty tight and I think I… Continue reading 30 Days of Yoga: Day 9

30 Days of Yoga: Day 8

Ah today went really well. I'm a little bit tighter on my left side than on my right but overall it went well. I stayed in plank and downward dog for much longer than usual and I can feel my shoulders opening up little by little too. This morning my mom gave my back a… Continue reading 30 Days of Yoga: Day 8

30 Days of Yoga: Day 7

Yay! I made it through the first week! Today was challenging and there was some balancing involved. I'm really quite disappointed in myself that I keep falling off the wagon and ending up losing so much of my strength, balance and endurance. My muscle tone isn't what it used to be either. It really shows… Continue reading 30 Days of Yoga: Day 7
