  1. Congrats- that's awesome! I did it the first time in that video too and I felt pretty awesome (although I only lasted a short time)!
  2. Love it- I am in! I think I'm going to go with the mermaid pose!
  3. Thanks! I just signed up in Wordpress- novicetonamaste.wordpress.com. I'm thinking i'll do the 39 day challenge on there too to track my progress. I'd definitely be open to the forum journal idea too!
  4. Putting it in your calendar is a great idea! You're more likely to work for and achieve your goals of they're written down. I'd recommend writing down your goal yoga schedule- 15 minutes three times per week, or whatever you decide- and putting it somewhere you see every day! I started a personal blog where I can post pictures and chart my progress (based off someone's suggestion in the YBC forum!). It's nothing formal, but I'm hopping that the idea that someone may see it and the "public" commitment will push me to be more consistent and stick to my own goals!
  5. Hi Candace, I'm really tight in my neck and shoulders, so I'm trying to do some poses to open up there. I tried reverse prayer, and I'm feeling it more in the outside of my wrists below my pinky finger. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
  6. I just ordered my first Fabletics outfit last night- definitely can't beat the price. Got a shirt and pants for $14 after all the discounts. My girlfriend has a handful of Fabletics outfits and loves them, especially the yoga pants!
  7. These are some helpful tips for someone who hasn't been to a class in a "real" studio yet!
  8. Love the idea of taking pictures and documenting your progress. It's also a great way to make sure you're doing the poses correctly. Thanks for this idea!
  9. Kim, Mermaid pose is my goal right now too! looking for tips is actually how I stumbled across Candace's videos, website and this forum. I'm really glad I did. I just took my first class at the beginning of September, so I think I've got a ways to go. I'll be rooting for you to get there! PS- I think I need to check out Teeki pants
  10. I actually just bought Lulu's The Mat last night. I have read some pretty good reviews on it. Anyone else try it out? I'll let you know how I like it after I've used it.
  11. Hi everyone! I'm Katie and I'm from Ohio in the US. I'm brand new to yoga, so I'm looking forward to learning a lot!
