40-Day Yoga Challenge Completed
In my previous blogs, I discussed Yoga in the NFL http://tinyurl.com/c2op8so as well as my personal 40-Day Hot Yoga Challenge http://tinyurl.com/aj8hmfg and http://tinyurl.com/bbhg9fs. Now that I have completed my 40 day journey, I understand why professional athletes are making yoga a part of their regular training. As I worked through these 40-days, I experienced everything from physical transformation to mental relaxation.
Although my days were busier than usual as I jugged a full-time job, full-time graduate school and 75-minutes of hot yoga a day, I managed to have more energy and get more accomplished in the past 40 days than I could have ever imagined. My increased energy as well as my new-found mental positivity and clarity have taken me to a whole other level in my professional career and my personal relationships. I have a renewed sense of spirit and calmness each morning as I awake to take on the day ahead.
40 days of Hot Yoga has also increased my strength significantly. And, I have shed four pounds, plus decreased an inch on my waist and half an inch on my thighs. I have never experienced a physical transformation so quickly and I cannot imagine my life without yoga. I challenge anyone to try Yoga or Hot Yoga……you won’t regret it!
