Yoga Challenge During My Last Month of Pregnancy....Why Not!?!?

image

I am almost 35 weeks pregnant! Next week will be a month from my due date! I cannot wait to have my sweet baby boy here with us!

Until then though, to pass the time I thought I would join in on a little Instagram Yoga Challenge!!

I decided to join some of my favorite Insta Yogis in a challenge called  Back Bend Madness! #backbendmadness

I mean what better way to pass my last month of pregnancy than to be in a Yoga Challenge!

I would love to have some of you join in with me! I got my mom to join, and this is her first ever yoga challenge.  She has only just started doing yoga for the past few months, and has learned to love it.  It is extra challenging for her too, because her back has always given her problems, so throughout the challenge she has commented several times about having a stiff back.  What better way to fix that though, than to practice back bends. All that to say, anyone can do it, because my mom is rocking it! Plus the hosts share multiple versions that you can try, from beginners to advanced, so you can always choose what is best for you!

CaptureHere's the entire month's challenge, and we are only on Day 7, so it's not too late to join!

Here are some of my back bends from the challenge so far!

So there are my first 6 days of the #BackBendMadness Instagram Challenge!!

It is a lot of fun to do it along with people that you know so that you can keep each other accountable to remember to post, and encourage each other along the way! That is why it is so fun that my mom is doing it with me! So if you are interested at all in joining, follow me on INSTAGRAM and tag me @NFSisters!!! I would love to see your posts!

And remember, don't be intimidated, Yoga is all of being true to yourself and doing what you can do, with no comparison to others! You have to listen to your body, and there are always variations for every body type and skill level!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Don't even tell me that I will NOT be the CUTEST YOGI at training!! haha because of my bag of course!!

Anyways, this bag is awesome! Not only does Yoga People Bags have amazing prints for their bags, but they are super roomie as well!

On a normal basis I leave my mat, strap, and block in my bag! That's pretty roomie on it's own.  A few weeks ago though, I ran to the gym from my house (1.6miles one way), and did a yoga class then ran back.  All I took was my yoga bag, and I fit everything that I needed in it! I was so amazed! But even with just your mat in it, it's not TOO big.  It has a great/roomie inside zipper pocket, then two small outside button pockets.  I use those for my phone, headphones, money, etc.

Big Sis & I both loves these bags!

Just So Flippin' Excited

little signautresHey everybody! Little Sis here, and I am JUST SO FLIPPIN' EXCITED!

Let me just start by saying I AM GOING TO BE A YOGA INSTRUCTOR BY NEXT MONTH!!!

OMG!

This summer has been crazy, with getting pregnant, and losing the baby, and all the emotions and hard times that came with that, then with trying to buy a house and going through a ton of hassles that put us off a month later than expected, we have done a lot of waiting around this summer.

And in the midst of all that we were going through, my husband and I felt that the Lord told us that we need to START DREAMING again! He minded me that what we are doing now isn't the "FULLNESS" of what he created us for, and he "Wasn't done with us yet!" So since that big revelation at the end of May, we have started dreaming!

Obviously I am very passionate about fitness! (that's why we have a blog about it :-) ) & I just love yoga! I love the way it makes me feel, I love the escape it gives me, I love being challenged and growing in my skill, flexibility, & strength, and I love it! And I have such a desire to teach it!

So that is why I am going to Austin next week to get certified! I am ecstatic, and cannot wait!

Then last week something great happened! Currently I work at a local university as the Student Activities Coordinator.  Well last week our fitness department called me and offered me the job as the Teacher for the Yoga Course that they offer as a PE Credit! And I accepted! I am so excited about this, and am just praying for the opportunity to teach yoga even more at local gyms, etc.

I am pumped about exploring my dreams, following my dreams, and getting opportunities to walk out in those dreams! I am so thankful that the Lord got our attention and reminded us to keep dreaming!

Stay tuned next week as I travel to Austin to get certified!! We will have an AWESOME YOGA GIVEAWAY FOR YOU!!
