Day#5 & Day#6 Yoga November Challenge

Day#5 & Day#6 Yoga November Challenge

Hi Everyone!

Today is November 6, 2014.

Day#5

Rest day. Like I told you before, I’m a beginner and I need some rest because I was feeling a little bit of soreness in my body. I regretted that I not did anything at all for the challenge, but in the end I felt good to have a day off.

Day#6

Was a good day for me. I woke up very early 5:44 am since then I still up. I drank a coffee to help me to stay up and function normally since I never wake up at these time. I did some house work. “House work never-ending you know“. I take care of my baby. I take advantage of one of her naps so I did my routine for this day.

I searched on youtube.com |yoga for beginners| and there I found a bunch of videos for novice people like me. I used a video from a girl named Adriene her channel is Yoga with Adriene. Also she have a web page: http://yogawithadriene.com I think the video is very informative and I felt it work for me.

Routine Duration: 15 minutes {Yoga for the lower back pain} For healing and preventive care.

Favorite pose of the day: Two-Knee Twist

Thoughts of the day: It felt so good doing this routine I absolutely love it. I recommend it if you having problem with your lower back.

How to do Two-Knee Twist pose:
Lying on your back, bend your knees into your chest and bring your arms out at a T. As you exhale lower your knees to ground on the right. Keep both shoulders pressing down firmly. If the left shoulder lifts, lower your knees further away from the right arm. Hold for 1-2 minutes each side

Fact: Listen to your body and find what feels good.

My progress and My Dares: Day#6

P: More relax

D: My Flexibility

P: Positive thought during the routine

D: Concentration
