The #YogaHappy Challenge: Day 9

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 NINE: Today we encourage you to activate your senses. More specifically, ignite your sense of smell. Make yourself a glass of warm lemon water this morning. Smell the lemon before you squeeze it in. Smell the skin. Scrape it with your fingers. Does it smell differently? Does your finger hold the aroma of the zest? Inhale and exhale. Pay attention to the smell. Sip the water. Can you still smell the lemon? Does the smell make you happy? Breathe in the aroma and get #YogaHappy.

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!
