Hi Shelley, Thanks for the encouragement. I convinced my husband to join me and he is also loving the challenge. I have been working hard with my intention—my lower back is very tight right now—but this is really helping every day. Thanks. Looking forward to the rest of the challenge.
Nancy Glad you brought your hubby into the fold, how wonderful for you both to do this together... the daily practice will definitely help with tightness in low back, and just go at your own pace... perhaps spend a little extra time stretching your quads and hip flexors to help release the low back. Foam rolling will help, too!
This was probably one of my favorite so far in the challenge. I have never been able to go this deep in camel pose before (yeah!). I guess starting to feel the results of the commitment to be on the mat everyday.
We are a group of 5 women in our community doing this challenge in January together - committing to ourselves and each other
Very nice practice. I've enjoyed the way the core work was intertwined with the other poses. I find it difficult to do Down Dog with the blocks. I feel shaky. I don't know if it's a matter of placement or height of the blocks. Do you have any advice? Thank you!
