Why yoga? I have been saying for months I need to do this again, the benefits are endless! Increased strength and flexibility, injury prevention and decreased stress. I was talking to someone the other day who said she has taught her young daughter yoga to calm herself when she gets upset or frustrated. What a great idea, I decided to start trying this (kind of) too since O tends to be a little dramatic and easily gets herself worked up. The other day in the midst of a near fit I told her to show me some stretches from dance, she sat down started stretching and breathing and her mood immediately changed. AMAZING!
Since I am not taking a class on this first day I turned to Pinterest for the answer, I love Pinterest!
Here are a few workouts I found:
Good Morning Yoga
Pretty simple to follow and easy moves, great workout outside to start the day off
Bikini Body Yoga
This one looks a little more advanced but maybe I can get there one day!
This one also looks pretty easy and one I can handle

Who is joining me for the 30 Day Yoga Challenge? I hope this will get me back in the habit and make it a part of my daily routine. Thanks for all the suggestion before and I am excited to check out yoga podcasts on iTunes and videos on YouTube.
