How long have I been doing yoga?

I have been doing yoga on a regular basis for 9 years and I totally love it. However, as a fitness expert who has never had any trouble creating her own workouts, it’s always really hard for me to practice yoga alone without an instructor. I really like to be “taught” yoga.

When I lived in Southern California for 8 years, I would take yoga at a studio and in the park nearly everyday. However, since moving to Austria (with a completely different work load and schedule) I now practice yoga 1x per week at the office in German and 1x per week at home using FitnessGlo or Yoga With Adriene. Yes, a whopping 2 times per week and it’s TOTALLY not enough. My body and mind will also tell you the same.

30 days of yoga 2

Two months ago I did a 21 day meditation challenge with Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra that was absolutely amazing. Ever since then I take at least 5 minutes daily to quiet my mind, focus my intentions and get rid of all anxious and uncomfortable feelings.

I now want to combine my love for meditation and my love for yoga – but for 30 days straight! Can I do both? Of course…

My goals for this 30 Days of Yoga Challenge!
