the quality of bending easily without breaking.
Let's talk about things that I am certainly not! There was a time in my life...probably when I was far younger, that I considered myself very flexible. However, after a week of daily yoga with GaiamTV through a campaign with Fitfluential, I am realizing that flexibility is something I really need to work on in all areas of who I am!
After taking the quiz to start the program, I was named a Cultivator...
From there GaiamTV has sent me a video a day that includes what yoga workout (is it called a workout) for the day. They have ranged in difficulty as well as length. I was most excited to see the one named "Yoga for Athletes"...that girl is in amazing shape...but I found a little lost a lot of the time. Mid-week I found myself getting to a point where I was a little frustrated with how lost I was during the videos but then the idea of flexibility came back to me. I have found that I not only need to be more flexible in he physical sense but also in the mental one as well. It shakes my bones when I have to do something that I am not confident in doing (Thankfully with GaiamTV I can do it in the shelter of my own home) and this has been like that as well. This is where the flexibility comes in...I need to embrace that feeling and know that a balance of go go go and the calming of yoga is really the challenge for me.
The videos from this week have been a combination of calming and hard work, but if I'm being honest I haven't been able to complete them all the way to finish since some of them are almost an hour. The shorter ones, like on day 4, I finished all the way through. What I have enjoyed is the challenge of them and the variety since I am new to yoga and really don't have an idea of what type I like best.
I am looking forward as the days continue to getting more and more comfortable and flexible! I know I need it more in my life and this is obviously a challenge I need!
Have you taken the quiz and started a GaiamTV program?
Have you done yoga before? What was challenging for you at first?
