I've never successfully done yoga. I tried hot yoga once and just about passed out doing it and had to sit down. The thought of going to a yoga studio to try again was intimidating since I had no clue what the basic moves were in the first class I had unsuccessfully attempted. Lately, yoga pictures have been flooding my Instagram feed. These monthly Yoga Challenges where you post a photo a day. A friend had been posting photos of her April Challenge #inversionsmakeyouhot. So impressed with her ability, I commented on her post about the new one starting in March - Backbend yoga Challenge. She tried to talk me into it, but I wasn't ready to commit. I was just looking forward to watching her progress and getting inspired to one day soon, give it a try myself. (( She suggested I check out YogaGlo.com (it's $18 / month). There are so many styles / teachers / levels to choose from. She loves it and and recommended Kathryn Budig as her favorite instructor so far. ))
March 31st she posted her April challenge #YogaToTheCore - I'm all in. It's time to pull the trigger and try yoga. I have nothing to lose by adding this to my daily workout routine & I hear it will help with running. So here it is! Feel free to join in the fun. Follow me on Instagram @hereforthewine , I'll be posting my daily photos. If I can do it, you can do it. Click here to find out more - Kino Yoga
