35 Things I learned in 35 Consecutive Days of Yoga

Hi there, Before I get into those 35 things, let me give you some background. I did this as a participant of a 30 day challenge, that then turned into two challenges and extended my original 30 days to 35 days. The first challenge was a social media challenge started by Yoga Girl (Rachel Brathen),…

30. 108 Sun Salutations. dogs. and yoga in the park. 

Today is the last day. It’s day 30 of #yogagirlchallenge. But it’s not the end of #yogaeverydamnday for me. Thank you again, @yoga_girl for inspiring this and giving me inspiration to finally dive into my practice. Today I did maybe ten of the 108, but I was there the whole time. I brought my mom…

26. me. sleep. and snuggles.
