I have a few general yoga-related posts coming up (including a yoga wear round up, of course!), but I felt the need to give you an update today on my slowly blossoming yoga practice. Since before the holidays, I’ve consistently practiced yoga 6 days out of the week, and I think I’ve found my weekly yoga magic combination. A little bit of Iyengar, a little bit of Vinyasa (both heated and not), and my very favorite, restorative yoga. I love this schedule because it keeps things fresh, and it’s allowing me to figure out which specific direction, if any, I want to take. Also, I’m realizing that there’s absolutely no end to learning. Decades of learning. I mean, before trying yoga, I was concerned that not having specific, tangible goals for myself would take it’s toll. (You know how much I like tracking runs and times and so forth.) Then, after a few classes, I realized how much I wanted to attempt crow pose. Crow pose, people. That is my goal right now. Baby steps.

As you can imagine, practicing this much means I’m popping into my yoga studio quite frequently. I really love Ekam because everyone is so warm and non-threatening, and the space itself is new and beautiful. (And super clean – you know I’m a stickler about this.) To be honest, I had tried out many studios this past year and was starting to think I couldn’t find the trifecta of great teachers, clean spaces, and a robust schedule. Thank goodness one of my neighbors mentioned Ekam because it’s perfect for me.
I’m really excited because the radiant Alysa agreed to help me out with a giveaway for my local peeps. Ekam Yoga is offering 3 months of unlimited yoga to 1 lucky winner. You could go every day if you wanted, hell, you could go twice a day. Talk about some Zen, people. (And some majorly stretched out hammies.)

Good luck!
