  1. Hi there! I did the strength project earlier this year. Since then I've gone through a tough time in my personal life (getting a divorce and a new job all within the last 2 months) so I've been meaning to start this heart-opening project for a while. I did some of the first week and absolutely loved it. However, I've been having a lot of trouble sticking to the schedule and practicing regularly. Even though I really want (and need!) to practice. In any case, I'm about to start over and take it one step at a time. Hopefully I can stick to it properly this time around! Thanks for this wonderful community for the support!
  2. Wow, thank you for this comment! I had been a little worried about getting my heels to the ground while trying to keep my arms and middle section aligned. Here's my answer! This is really very helpful. I had been trying to be as patient with myself as possible but now I know that I shouldn't be so hard on myself. I'll let the heels take the time they need to reach the ground and I'll focus more on my thighs and hips being in the correct position. Also, I have such mixed feelings about being almost done with this challenge. I feel sad that it's ending (because I loved it) but at the same time I'm truly excited because it means 2 things: 1) I've definitely made some progress (I feel a considerable improvement in my strength and I'm actually pushing my weight into my index and thumb now instead of my palms) and 2) I can start another project soon and there are so many great ones to choose from! Thank you so much, Candace, for creating these programs and sharing them with us. You have no idea how important yoga has become in my everyday life thanks to you. I hope you are all having a great 2016 so far!
  3. So I'm starting my second week and I thought it would be good to post an update: The pose I chose to practice (as a beginner) is downward facing dog and, let me tell you, I can already see a big difference after just one week My heels are slowly but surely making their way down to the floor and my neck and shoulders are becoming more comfortable in this pose. What I'm having trouble with so far is the fact that I put my weight on the base of the hands. I'm finding it hard to plug my fingers into the mat but hopefully, through mindful practice, I'll get there. I hope you're all having wonderful yoga experiences! Namaste
  4. Hello! I'm starting very late but here goes nothing! I recently discovered this project through Pinterest and I'm really excited to jump in. I'll be following the suggested schedule for the upcoming 31 days. I just did day 1 and I feel great! Thank you Candace for all the effort you made to create and share this project.
  5. Hello there everyone! This is Sarah, reporting from Egypt I'm really excited to join you all! I discovered YogabyCandace on Pinterest a couple of months ago and I've been wanting to pick up a challenge and start it ever since. I just didn't know which one to choose until yesterday when I finally picked the 31 Day Strength Project. I started today and I feel great! Thank you so much Candace for creating and sharing all of these Projects. They're so inspiring and helpful! I hope anyone reading this has a great day
