  1. Thanks for this challenge! Due to being sick at the last day of the old year and the first one of the new one, I'm one day behind, but that's hardly what matters. One of my aims for 2015 was to manage a forearm headstand, and thanks to your challenge I see that happening in January!
  2. I'm looking forward to that Ask A Yoga Teacher, I'm also having that fear. It's not exactly fear of falling, but more fear of falling and breaking my neck.
  3. I also sit in front of the computer for most of my working day. I try to give my body a break by going to the gym or for a run over lunch on a couple of days each week. Other than that, I try to visit other people at their desk or in the lab if I need to talk to them instead of just giving them a call. I find that face to face interaction is often more efficient (it may take more time, but I actually get what I need in the end) and it moves my body.
  4. The reason why I started doing yoga was actually running. I developed ITB syndrom a couple of years ago, and after some googling I found an injury prevention yoga video for runners which I started doing regularly. From there, I started doing other videos from the same place, and so it all started with yoga. I run 2-3 times a week between 6 and 12 km (sorry, I'm all metric). Last year, I did a half marathon, and I might do another one next year. But recently, I also started trail running, and I enjoy it a lot. For me it's more about the experience of being outside than actually improving my stats.
  5. Hi there! I'm reading from Zürich, Switzerland. I have started doing yoga after a running injury to prevent more injuries, and so far that strategy has been working.
