Why I Yoga with CorePower Yoga

Did you enjoy National Yoga Month in September?

I sure did!

My main ambition was to program myself to let go of stress and worry when I walked into the door. I didn’t want to fixate on a specific goal, but rather to enjoy every moment of the month that I spent in the studio. I really want to develop the ability to shed my daily life and concerns at the door and relish the immediate sense of relief and bliss when I walk into a yoga studio.

While I feel like I made a TON of progress on this during September, in part I imagine due to repetition, I also believe that it’s almost a life-long goal. Not something that you can 100% achieve in a month. But every step I take is a step in the right direction!

I also spent some time in September thinking about my answer to CorePower Yoga’s insightful #WhyIYoga hashtag campaign.

So why do I yoga? Here are a few of the top reasons:

  • I helps me get in touch with ME
  • It forces me to slow down
  • It makes me smile
  • It brings me peace
  • It challenges me
  • It helps me become a better version of myself

National Yoga Month

September is National Yoga Month and while I got something of a late start, I’m thrilled to be celebrating.

In my 30 Day Self Challenge during August I talked about my love of yoga and how I was a bit disappointed that I have a bad habit of choosing workouts over yoga classes. After making a concerted effort during August to squeeze in more yoga, and after falling head-over-heels in love with Ritual Hot Yoga this Summer, I really wanted to dedicate a full month to my yoga practice.

Enter CorePower Yoga. If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat {moicontrelavie} you may have seen me doing headstands poolside in August. That was a seriously fun outdoor yoga event at the Phoenix Hotel. It was hosted by CorePower Yoga and I loved getting to meet the team and improve my practice with their guidance.

So what are my goals for National Yoga Month?

While I am very interested in working on arm balances in general, I’m actually not going to focus on hitting any specific goals this month. My goal is really just to enjoy myself and focus on walking into the studio and letting go of the outside world.

I took a Ritual Hot Yoga class this past weekend and they always have a mantra that they focus on for the day. I loved Saturday’s, which was: “Let it come.” Lindsay reminded us not to waste precious moments when the next moment will come regardless.

So slow down, relax, enjoy.

And let it come!

So be sure to stay tuned to hear about my experiences with CorePower Yoga and how much I enjoyed National Yoga Month!
