Namaste November 2013

I have talked before about my lackluster yoga “practice” and am happy to report that my love for yoga is growing. While it may not induce a wild heart rate or tomato face (two of my favorite things), I find tremendous value in the deliberate, controlled, and concentrated movements. My strength is increasing and I am seeing improvement in my flexibility.

As my value for yoga has increased, I have considered upping the ante on my discipline by committing to daily yoga for one month. Since “Namaste November” has a cute ring to it, it is clear that the month is now! Namaste November starts on Friday, November 1st. Let the asanas begin!

In celebration of this month of daily yoga, I purchased a Groupon for YogaWorks for myself and Isaac. Get this, $30 for a month of unlimited classes at all Orange County locations. I am so excited! We kicked Namaste November off (albeit a bit early) last night with a Vinyasa date.

Post savasana. BTW, it looks like Isaac is getting a head start on No-Shave-November.

I am hoping to make it to YogaWorks two or three times per week. The days that I am not able to make it to YogaWorks, I will rely on my trusty YogaDownload for guidance. YogaDownload is a website with a huge variety of yoga classes. Many of them are free). I talk more about it here. Check out their website www.yogadownload.com for more.

I know that one month will not transform my body and abilities, I do expect to create a healthy habits during this time. Also, I hope that I can learn much of the foundational basics in my classes at YogaWorks. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Would anyone like to join me? It would be fun to do this together and share what we learn! We could even meet up to do a yoga session together? THINK about it, and then just do it please!

Namaste.

Any yogis (and/or wannabe yogis) out there want to join in for Namaste November?

      Hi Kate! Awesome! Do you practice at home or a studio or both? How long have you been practicing? I have dabbled in yoga for a few years now but have not invested enough to see improvement in my flexibility or strength. Excited to step up the game!
