why i yoga

credit {here}
i practice yoga because:

- it makes me feel good inside & out
- it quiets my mind
- i like its simplicity and grace
- it makes me feel strong
- it challenges me (both mind & body)
- stretching feels goooood
- i <3 it
- it connects me to my body
- i stand up straighter
- it kicks my butt (sometimes)
- i have more poise & balance
- it works my entire body
- it strengthens and tones my muscles more than anything i've ever done
- it's all about practice not perfection
- it's just for me : )

  2. I did Yoga X with the P90X series... that stuff sucks... so I've never tried just Yoga but I can't say I'm in the mood too either. The other had me literally in tears. it hurt my wrists in upward dog and those positions :(

  3. Yoga is really mentally challenging for me. I like contact sports! I fell in love with Vinyasa yoga - because it gets a good sweat going!

  4. I try and get to at least one hot yoga class a month, with my schedule it's hard but I know it's good for me.

    What do I do just for me? the gym. i run, I stretch, i lift weights. It's my zen area. :)

  5. What a pretty post. Yellow is my favorite color. I took advantage of a Living Social deal on some hot yoga classes and I absolutely loved them. Pricey, pricey, pricey but really awesome.

  13. yoga is great! I usually do it once a week for 1.5 hours. It's really good for excercise as well as clearing your mind of all the stressful thing. I also run 2 miles every day from monday to thursday. friday is my day off from working out. and sometimes I notice that on fridays I miss working out.
    great blog!!
    xoxo, Olya

  15. I love yoga. I find that it centers me after a long day at work. Plus the stretching feels great after sitting in an office chair all day and I find that the regulating of my breathing calms me and clears my mind. Yeah yoga!
