In case you didn't catch it on Instagram, I wanted to let you know about the two yoga challenge I'm hosting for September.
The first one is #GoldenYogis2 with my girls @AlyR.Fit, @DoroteasWorld, and @Aleksic_Twins. This challenge will run for 15 days from September 1-15 (come on ... totally doable) and is designed for all levels (we alwaaays take care of our beginner yogis).
We're known for encouraging variations, so we'll give you a basic pose each day along with three variations (in both pictures AND videos) ... you can choose to try one of our variations, browse through our #GoldenYogis2 gallery for inspiration from other challenge members, or make it your own and show us a variation you've created yourself! Post a picture or get creative and use the pose in a flow and post a video. Your choice!
It seems like our challenges have grown bigger and better each time we've hosted them, and we were thrilled with the companies who contacted us wanting to donate prizes to be given away to our favorite posts from those who participate in all fifteen days of this challenge: Arthletic Wear is giving away a piece (women's OR men's) from their beautiful athletic wear collection (I have their Tattoo leggings and their Phoenix leggings and totally looove them both), Onzie will be giving away a cute crop top, Kos USA is giving away a pair of leggings from their collection (I have the Kosmic Mest Inset Cami which I absolutely love and have a hard time taking off, the Steel Print Studio Leggings, and the Siren shorts), Meddy Teddy is giving away the cutest teddy bear in the world to promote yoga and meditation with children, and Uriah Clear Light is giving away a tank top from their Etsy shop (I have the tri-cranberry gold lotus flower racerback tank that glows in the dark).
Good stuff, right?
Each day we'll do a yoga pose that highlights a part of the body, along with giving you a positive body image affirmation you can use if you find the negative thoughts start creeping in. Do the day's pose, say the affirmation, post your picture, and then scroll through the challenge's gallery and see how many beautiful yoga bodies are in this with you. Give us a solid two weeks of trying to appreciate your body and stopping the self hate.
You got this.
We have two amazing sponsors who have agreed to donate prizes to our favorite posts from those who participate in all fifteen days of this challenge: Pogamat will be giving away one of their longer, wider, thicker exercise mats, and Jala Clothing will be giving away something from their collection (I have their Shine leggings which are the sexiest leggings evah!).
