Yoga first thing in the morning is a nice way to start the day, and in the sense that I feel more energized and motivated to get going afterward, I get a lot out of it. But in terms of developing my practice, I see the best results when I do yoga or stretch after a workout because I'm already warm and my muscles are more pliable and cooperative than they are straight out of bed.

I hope you had a good weekend!

I recently noticed that doing yoga first thing in the morning tends to hurt me lower back. I would love to wake up and start my day with yoga, but I just don't think that is possible (I've had chronic lower back pain since last year and I am only 25 lol). What time of the day do you find yourself getting the most out of your yoga practice?

Good for you! There are so many different technical styles, and every teacher layers his or her own personal style over that, that you are bound to find one you like.

Recharge again yesterday. I wanted to do an extended practice, but the timing wasn't right.

I did recharge today! I am actually thinking about trying out a class this weekend, but I've never been to a yoga class so I am a bit nervous.

I did the CLX Recharge video yesterday, so that was 20 minutes.

Awesome!

I started the 30 Day Yoga Challenge on April 1st, so I am already on Day 3, but start when you are ready!

Also, if you check out yogajournal, they can email videos to you so you can have a yoga video in your inbox everyday.

As for the 90 Day Cardio portion, that is up to you. I chose CL because, like I mentioned previously, I never quite got the chance to finish.

Update me on your progress! :)

Sure, why not?

I'm doing my own ChaLEAN Extreme, Turbo Fire/Kick, Hustle, PiYo hybrid right now (week 4), so all 5 CLX workouts don't make it in every week (I do the Burn, Push, and Lean videos without exception), but if sticking to what I have myself scheduled for meets your criteria, I'm in.

Good Morning Sparkers!

I wanted to invite anyone who is interested to join me in a ChaLean Extreme/Yoga Challenge for 30 days.

I was 2 weeks away from completing the Lean Circuit, when I became very ill with the flu. I ended up having to take almost 3 weeks off from exercising, putting me drastically out of shape.

In my quest to get back on track, I decided to start ChaLean Extreme from the beginning and also incorporate a 30 day yoga challenge to practice overall wellness.

Here are my challenge guidelines:

30 Day Yoga Challenge

I will complete 30 consecutive days of yoga, which is pretty self-explanatory.
I must complete a minimum of 5 minutes of yoga per day, including one day of yoga over 20 minutes.
Yoga does not have to be completed in a class format, and can be conducted at home.
I can try any level of yoga, but I must complete more than 3 poses in a sequence.
Yoga can be completed at any time of day.

90 Day Exercise Challenge
I will complete all 3 phases of the ChaLean Extreme program in 3 months (Burn, Push, Lean Phase).
I will follow the class schedule as much as possible, and complete 5 workouts a week.

A disclaimer for this challenge. I will not be angry or hate myself if I need to skip a day, life happens, and I will try my best.

I am just doing this for fun and as a way to get back in the game! I am doing this with some of my friends and I will be documenting my experience in a blog. If you are bored and want to check it out, feel free! sweetyums.wordpress.com/

Have a great morning :)
