The last few entries in my other blog have discussed a 21-Day Yoga Challenge created by Yoga Journal. If you haven't heard about the challenge, I describe it here. It is my goal to complete the challenge, blog about it daily, and hopefully motivate others along the way (The first two days can be found here and here.) I am continuing the yoga challenge blogs on this site starting today.
Today's yoga challenge was a core strengthening sequence and lasted about 20 minutes. I loved this routine and really felt the burn in my abdomen. However, I never felt strained or too tired to continue. The instructor, Rebecca Urban, combined the perfect amount of effort and relaxation in her routine. I would highly recommend this workout for any skill level (Beginners, that means you too!) Everyone would be doing themselves a great favor by working out their core. Not only will you experience a flatter middle, but you will notice that daily activities may become easier to complete (Ever had to twist and stretch in order to get something out of reach?)
