Yoga Challenge : Week 3

I just realized that when I first announced my Yoga Challenge I never set an end date!

I think I did that intentionally, so since this is an open-ended challenge, this will be the last time I number what week it is. Could you imagine “yoga challenge week 27”? Ha ha.

Anyway, I think it is significant that I’m in week 3 and this has become a fully-fledged habit. You know how they say it takes 21 days to form a habit? It’s so true; 21 days = 3 weeks.

But I feel like I’ve really incorporated yoga back into my life and it feels so good!

Today, I had the pleasure of attending an hour long yoga class here at work, so I did not do my morning practice today. The class was great!

It was a nice combination of standing, kneeling and lying down poses. I got to do tree pose, which is always a plus in my book 🙂 But I really liked the instructor too. Good choice for today.

Including this class, I managed to practice yoga 4 times again this week. Setting the realistic goal of 4 times per week (instead of every day) is another thing that I believe has made this challenge successful so far. Maybe someday I will get to a daily practice, but for now 4 works out great and it’s a lot more than I was doing before!

I have a run planned for Saturday so my next yoga time will likely be on Sunday. Since I already did my four times this week, that will just be a bonus 🙂
