I’ve been doing yoga for almost two years now, and I love it more every day of practice. My first yoga video was from the Youtube channel Yoga with Adriene, and I’ve been doing it ever since. Recently Adriene did a yoga “revolution”, a.k.a. 31 days of yoga for the month of January. It ended on Tuesday, and in today’s post I’m going to be sharing my thoughts!
How I Feel Mentally
Amazing! After doing yoga every day, I found that my head was clearer, my thoughts were less scattered, and I was calmer and not stressed. Many people mistake yoga for being a physical practice, but don’t realize that it’s more of a mental practice. Yoga has taught me to love myself, to be confident, and to keep my head up high through the bad & good.
How I Feel Physically
My arm muscles are definitely looking bigger. 😉 I can also do more push-ups and have more core strength than before! My muscles were sore the first few days, but eventually my body adjusted and felt amazing after each practice. Along with being stronger, I’m way more flexible!
Why I Do Yoga
I do yoga to be the best Abigail that I can possibly be. Yoga helps me to think positively, it connects my mind to my body, and allows me to let go of negative thoughts and move on. I’m still not perfect at downward dog, I fall when doing tree pose, but none of that matters. What matters is that I show up and do my best.
Day 16 was my favorite practice by far, and I keep going back to it to stretch and get in a nice workout! Here’s the video if you’d like to give it a try.
Even though the revolution is over, you can do it! Be sure to check out Adriene’s channel, she has so many yoga videos. If you did the revolution, I would love to hear what you think about it/your results! Thank you for reading. 🙂
