I never win anything – well – ok, that’s not true – I have won a few races in my day (ahem, humblebrag) and a spelling bee and maybe even a science fair in elementary school (mom, please confirm if this is factual?). Anyway, kidding aside, I am so thankful to Christy from Christy Runs for choosing me as one of her winners for one free year of The Yoga Collective.
I love practicing yoga at home and most importantly I think Abbie likes when I practice yoga at home -while I downward dog, she explores more interesting ways to bite or lick me. Pets and yoga, anyone?
Truly though, I love practicing at home because its such a great way to really find yourself in your body and your breath. I’ll sometimes just grab my mat, some music that I feel like bopping around to and get after it on the mat – allowing myself to move however the hell I feel like moving – allowing my asanas to be less than perfect and my body to just go with the flow.
But then there are times when I try to practice and self practice just ain’t gonna happen. I’ll get on the mat and instantly feel distracted. And then I just want someone to tell me what to do…only for whatever reason, I can’t get to a class (or don’t want to get to a class) which is why I love The Yoga Collective.
The Yoga Collective makes it easy to find online yoga videos – and allows you to customize your class by level, duration, teacher, style and focus. Want to work on arm balances? Hip openers? A 30 minute core blaster? Whatever you’re looking for, it seems they have it for you.
Stay sweaty friends!
