A 30-day yoga challenge Tracy can get behind — any other takers?

Image description: grid with 30 days of yoga poses, one per square, cartoon-like drawings of a person doing each pose on a yoga mat. Each square includes the name of the pose (e.g. Pigeon Pose) at the bottom and the challenge day (e.g. Day 28) at the top.

I like 30-day challenges. I like easy and attainable challenges. And I love yoga. So when Sam brought this very attainable 30-day yoga challenge from Livestrong to the attention of the Fit Is a Feminist Issue blog regulars, I said, “Yes please!” I need to kickstart my Fall. Most people’s activity routines get solid through the summer. Mine faltered. Nothing like the first day of September and a very easy daily goal to ease back into it.

The gist of it is this: they suggest one pose a day (as per the above poster) for each day of the challenge. The commitment is to hold the pose twice a day for 30-60 seconds. If your body isn’t keen on the suggested pose, pick a different one. That’s it. I can do that.

And I bet you can too. Who wants to join me?
