Friday, April 13th Workout - Full Body Yoga Workout and Stretch - Private Lesson

I had an amazing private yoga lesson in my home today with a great instructor who came highly recommended by an old friend.

She was very friendly, informative and knowledgeable and I learned a lot! We went through all the poses in my Yoga Stretch line up including several variations of the poses which help me stretch further (I'm freakishly flexible in some of the poses :/ lol) and I learned how to do some poses more correctly and how to properly hold them with the right form!

She was also really impressed with how much I could do (an do correctly) and how flexible I was! It was great all around and I'll be adding two new poses (and maybe more as I practice more) and a lot of variations to my daily yoga stretch because I can push myself further and do more than I thought which I seem to be encountering a lot lately!

Anyway, it was a fantastic lesson and I feel like this will absolutely benefit my yoga practice and the challenges and daily poses that I do and that I'll be much more confident in my poses! I very much recommend this instructor!

I'm also very glad I decided not to do leg day before the yoga lesson because my thighs were worked SO hard with all the Warriors and the chair poses that I got a great leg workout without leg day!

Here is the full line-up of what I did and the variations I'll be doing and what poses I'll be adding! This is basically my yoga stretch after every workout!
