It's a new year, and time for a new challenge. Whether you are just starting your practice, or wanting to deepen it- we want this challenge to jump start that process for you in 2014. With that said, the #YogaHappy challenge is open to anyone and everyone seeking daily bliss.
This 21-day challenge includes everything from getting sweaty on the mat to finding yoga in unusual places in your daily routines. Each day we will post a new challenge that connects you to a different part of your practice. The #YogaHappy challenge will inspire mindfulness, presence and our connection to our happy place.
DAY SEVENTEEN: Walking Meditation. Listen to the sounds surrounding your pace. Feel the breeze against your skin as you make each step. Feel the heel, the soul, the ball, the toes connect with the earth as you stride. Listen to your breath as you pace your walk. Listen for the natural harmony that forms between your breath, movement and environment.
Every inhale you feel a part of your body lifting, whether the foot, the thigh or the hip rotating. Every exhale you feel the body settling, connecting with the earth beneath your feet. Grounding.
TO ENTER: share a photo on Instagram (with #YogaHappy) of you participating in the challenge- whether it is a selfie of your practice, your blissed-out yoga hair, or a picture of what is inspiring you on that day.
LOG YOUR PRACTICE: take a picture every day of your challenge and submit it on Instagram. You can add a description or a new insight if you'd like. Remember: your participation is encouraging someone else to join in and get #YogaHappy. What can be better. You can join us in this challenge on any day!
