    I powered through 3 YBC videos this morning to make up for not being able to make it to the mat yesterday. Morning wake up yoga, yoga for strength & flexibility & 20 min flow for core strengthening) When my little yogi wakes up I plan on doing a fun little flow with her since she loves to get on the mat with me.

    My first attempt at getting in a good practice today was interrupted by my giggly little yogi who actually did a few down dogs & cobras with me before deciding I was her personal jungle gym
    To make up for it I just got done with an hour and 5 minute long practice. I didn't intend for it to be so long but I'm glad I kept going all the stress from the day is gone & I may actually be in bed before 10 tonight.

    Thanks good job to you too. I don't do any classes I just try to make it to my mat at least once a day and go through a couple of videos before working on a few strength & balance poses

    Got on my mat this morning for over an hour again and I feel great  My right side needs more work in my babygrasshopper by my left side is starting to look & feel really good.
     
    I love that this strength challenge pushes me to come to my mat each morning & find my edge. I'm remembering all the reasons why I fell in love with yoga in the first place and why it was such a big part of my daily life. So far this challenge has taught me not to assume which side is my stronger side, turns out my dominant side is actually the side that needs more work in baby grasshopper.
     
    Yesterday afternoon I strapped my mini yogi on my chest for some fun babywearing yoga. We had a blast and I learned that tree pose is very fun, yet extremely challenging with a moving 20lb weight strapped to your chest but I held each side for 5 long breaths. The sequence ended up putting her to sleep and I got to work on my baby grasshopper again

     Hi nfenchak, nice to meet you too.  Sorry, I am just now seeing figuring out the ins and outs of this community but will follow you on instagram. Have you read anything good lately? How have you been with the strength challenge? So far I have missed 2 days out of 6 but I made up for both those days by getting on my mat twice the next day to practice my baby grasshopper and do a strengthening flow.

    Babywearing yoga - that's adorable!!
     
    Unfortunately I'm still suffering through a hot Australian heatwave, so I'm only making it through 1/2-3/4 of the daily recommended videos, but I'm consistently taking time out each day to work on my grasshopper pose and I feel I'm making progress. I need to work on my arm strength, as well as hip flexibility.

    Thanks yogafire
    I'm not limiting myself to just 1 yoga buddy, just looking for some like minded buddies to check in with regularly aside from challenges. I'm going to check in with the other thread now that I know it exists.

    Opened up with long strengthening & heart opening flow thins morning. Then I worked on my baby grasshopper and some balance poses tree,warrior 3 and dancers pose. After that I followed a guided chakra aligning meditation and worked on my grasshopper again.

    I did a post during our November project with some tips for taking yoga photos. What I usually do is set up the video function, then record myself getting into the pose and then I take a screenshot and put that on instagram. If the photo is too big for instagram you can use an app like 'square ready' which condenses the photo to fit in the little instagram square

    How does everybody get their yoga pose 'selfies'?
    I'd like to take photos of my baby grasshopper to track my progress but have no clue how I will do it I don't have a front camera or a timer on my phone

    Hi mommaSunflower   - find me on instagram nfenchak is my id. I'm also a mom. I love coffee   and running   and dogs. I love to read and scrapbook. I'm way too ADHD to ever meditate. I end up falling asleep or getting annoyed with myself b/c I can't stop my brain from moving. Being upside down scares me, but I love watching others do it & maybe in a few years I will be able to do it myself . I have no idea what the name of my favorite pose is - it's when you are standing and legs are both pointed forward and straight - one in front and the other behind and you fold over the front leg. and I also love pigeon. Nice to meet you - and let me know when you do your first pose

    Great question! Here are some photography tips. What I usually do is set my phone to video, record myself getting into the pose (so that way I dont have to rush into it like if I were using a self-timer) and then take a screen shot. For the strength project, though, I kind of love the idea of people posting videos. I feel like you can really see a difference in the strength that way when you compare the beginning of the month to the end. But yeah, video and then screenshot is what I do.
