Lets practise some...

YOGA!
For a long time I have been really interested in yoga. I have been doing it once in a while, watching some videos and trying to copy poses I have seen on different applications.
At the beginning of August I started doing yoga more often. I just watched and practised with one video after another and it really interested me how I will feel after these practises. I also want to be more flexible, learn new things about yoga and see, how it affects me.
I have not been doing it every single day, but that is not my goal either. Now, in summer it has been easier to find time for sports, so I take this opportunity and do what I want to do.
So, let me show you, with which videos it all began :D
Firstly, I discovered Tara Stiles, who has some videos specially for beginners:

As I mentioned, I used some apps to find out new positions to take and try out, but I do not have none of them now as I just do not have enough space on my phone :D But you can easily find them by searching "yoga" or "yoga for beginners".
Lets move on with videos. So, now I have been watching "30 days of yoga" videos by Adriene. Some people might take it as yoga challenge, but I have not set myself too big goals, I just want to enjoy doing it and seeing, how it goes instead of forcing myself too much. (Just a little :)
I guess it would be good idea to start with day 1:
 I have done 8 days so far, I did day 7 twice as I just liked it so much :D And honestly, on days 6 and 8 I could not do it all, so please, if you also start practising yoga, do not hurt yourself! Yes, it is for beginners and seems like I should be able to do it all, but no, I do as much as I can and that is what matters. Everyone´s progress is individual, some people are more flexible and strong, for some it takes more time. And it is totally okay!
The main thing I would like you to do is enjoy! Sometimes I am not in the mood to do it either, but it sure feels good afterwards, when the workout is done! :)
And one thing that surprised me at first is how amazingly quickly half an hour goes by! Seriously, some practises seem to pass by so quickly :D
I am afraid I will not have much time for yoga, when I start studies in university, but we will see!
Lots of love,
Liisu
