I've been breaking up the yoga into 2-a-day segments of 15 minutes or more each. That way I can do a.m. and p.m. segments. So I thought I'd pass along the yoga routines that I've found. If I can do them, so can you because I'm about as far from a yogi as a park ranger (bad joke)...
The a.m. sequence I've been doing when I first get out of bed is courtesy of MindBodyGreen, which by the way, is one of the most informative and useful websites I've found for everything from recipes to workouts to spirituality. It's a 10-15 minute yoga sequence that is perfect for waking up your body first thing in the morning. My dog Addie likes to do her downward dog and cobra poses while I'm doing my morning yoga...

On day 3 of my 30-day challenges, I'm realizing the "fluff" that's usually in my life. To get everything done during the day - do a 15-minute yoga workout in the morning, a regular workout, another 15-minute yoga workout, walk the dog 3 times a day, go to work, do everything in between, and get to bed by 10:00 - all makes me cut to the chase and be more focused on what I need to accomplish for the day. Instead of watching t.v. while I eat dinner, I'm writing this blog...multi-tasking. So it's making me more efficient. Who knew by trying to cram more into my day I'd actually become more efficient at everything?
Do you have any yoga recommendations?
If you're doing a 30-day challenge, how's it going?
Funny, I have been focusing a lot on the fluff of late. I have an AM/PM Yoga DVD I bought at Target and I love it. I can't seem to make myself to yoga on my own & can't really afford a class right now (time & money), but I can deal with a DVD because someone is still instructing me on what to do and I get the flow of the workout without having to think about it too much.
My 30-day challenge items are going well! I've been going to bed, not always to sleep right away, but I'm in bed and attempting it. I'm really enjoying my hour of research a day. I'm learning a lot! Tracking my nutrition intake has been helpful and quite informative as well. So far, so good. I suspect the last one will be the hardest to maintain for the whole month, but we'll see.
