January Yoga Report

Each month I record some things about my journey. I do these posts for a couple of reasons; I want to keep a record of how I am progressing with my yoga, it will hold me accountable, and it gives you a very good look at what I am doing and how I am doing it.

Below you will find out the following things about the past month: goal poses that I am working on, what my home practice looked like, the yoga classes I attended, total time dedicated to fitness, and my healthy habit for the month.

Follow this yogi's journey and check out her posts on how to improve your own yoga practice.

I feel like this quote is very fitting right now and remind myself self of it often.

January Yoga Report

Goal Poses: These are the poses that I am currently working on.

Splits: I feel like I am making no progress with my splits. I’m not sure if I need to just be patient or change my approach. If anyone has any advice for this, please comment below! I need all the help I can get for this one!

Headstand: I am finally really comfortable with my headstand! It has taken me many months, but I can finally pike up and feel comfortable in the middle of the room. Next month I am changing this goal to a forearm stand.

Self-Practice: This is what I am currently doing as my home practice.

I have been really good at doing yoga at home every day, but more of just playing around with poses. I would like to have a practice that flows better.

This month I decided to separate out what classes I taught. I still do almost everything with my students, but as I get more comfortable I will do less and instead focus on adjusting my students.

Healthy Habit:

For the second month in a row, I wanted to do more cardio and failed, maybe February will be my month?!
