The Past Week of the March Yoga Challenge Photos!
This was a really good week for yoga poses. I had several favorites and one I hadn't done in a challenge in a while (the seated wide-legged forward bend pose). Can't wait to see what next week will bring!
Day Four March Yoga Challenge - Downward Facing pose (Adho Mukha Svanasana).
This is one of the first poses I learned to do and one I’m very comfortable in. I love the stretch of it, how strong it makes me feel and I can pretty much drop into this pose at any time lol.
Day Five March Yoga Challenge - Standing Half Forward Bend/Fold pose (Ardha Uttanasana).
This isn’t a pose that I do often so I’m still figuring out how to get it right and have to seriously work on not locking out my knees!
Day Six March Yoga Challenge - Cobra pose (Bhujangasana).
This is an okay pose, not my favorite but not disliked either. My main issue with this pose is that I can’t seem to drop my shoulders down away from my head and still hold the pose no matter how I try.
Day Seven March Yoga Challenge - Cat pose (Marjaryasana) and Cow pose (Bitilasana) sequence.
I love this pose sequence for the stretch that it provides and include it in my full-body stretch!
Day Eight March Yoga Challenge - Seated Wide-Legged Forward Bend/Fold (Upavistha Konasana). I love this pose for the fantastic stretch it provides and sometimes I add a stretch band/strap to make the stretch even deeper. I also do two variations of this: one with the hands in front of me and one with my hands around my feet.
Day Nine March Yoga Challenge - Tree Pose (Vriksasana).
This is one of my absolute favorite all time poses. It’s one of the first poses I learned and I still remember falling over the first few times I tried it!
Day Ten March Yoga Challenge - Extended Triangle Pose (Trikonasana).
This pose offers a great balance and stretch practice but I never feel like I’m doing it quite right and am leaning forward too much.
