Way back in April, I set myself a Thirty Day Challenge.
& here we are in August! How did that happen?
The challenge was to do yoga daily - this challenge did not quite work out....
I did do a few sessions.......
I started Pilates one to one sessions at the same time, to improve my back pain - a preventative measure rather than a treatment, which is what I usually go for.
Since my third session my back has been so much better, slowly building up my core muscles, strengthening my back, making connections and improving my flexibility.
I find myself concentrating on my breathing more and noticing and adjusting my posture.
Bonus - my tummy is looking flatter too!!
I now attend a class once or twice weekly.
Although Pilates isn't particularly spiritual, it has enabled me to 'meditate'
in the calming studio before everyone arrives for class, something I am only able to do when thoroughly chilled - I love it, me time.
So, the thirty day yoga challenge.....didn't quite work out, but I do do Pilates exercises at home a couple of times a week - this counts right?
