I’m in it! I packed my metaphorical bags and headed to camp!
If I sound like a total lunatic right now, let me explain….
This time last year I discovered a youtube channel called Yoga with Adriene. Maybe (hopefully, because it’s the BOMB) you’ve heard of it, but if you haven’t, it is exactly what it sounds like: yoga videos by the quirky, sunny, inspiring, thoughtful Adriene Mishler (and sometimes the adorable pup Benji!). In January of 2015 she was running a 30 days of yoga series to kick off the new year. A 30 day challenge always sounds intriguing, so I gave it a shot mostly to see if I could stick it out. I’ve dabbled in yoga for years and although I love it, I am never consistent. I made it through about 20 days of the challenge and then didn’t finish. Flash forward to 2016; I have been more consistent with yoga recently and I am ready for 30 days of yoga camp.
Holiday travel left me unable to start until January 6th instead of 1st, but this time nothing is holding me back! I am in the thick of it and eager to get deeper.
So much of health and wellness is focused on #cleaneating and six packs and cleanses, but that’s not an accurate or sustainable lifestyle at all. The more I read and hear about the mind/body connection the more interested in it I become. I have always been active, I am now pursuing nutrition as a career, and I am more and more curious about the mind as the third part of the wellness wheel (definitely just made up a term…wellness wheel? we’ll roll with it). I love that yoga is a total body/mind/spirit workout. Along with strength and circuit workouts, nutritious eating (anyone else needing post-holiday greens?) this yoga journey is an exciting one and I can’t wait to see what the next month of it has in store!
Is anyone else heading to yoga camp? I would love to hear your experience!
