In preparation for upcoming training, on January 14th, 2013 I started the Moksha Yoga 30-Day Challenge. Here are posts I put up on Facebook for my friends and family to read:
Starting up the 30-Day Challenge tonight with an amazing crowd! I’ve also added to the intention tree.

Had an amazing morning!
4/30 – thank you for waking me up and taking some of my anxieties away about upcoming training, Indie! Xo
5/30 – hardest class I’ve done to date. Staying in stillness in savansana for the entire session. Thanks for the mind-body challenge. I learned so much today. — at Moksha Yoga Square One.

Just finished classes 6&7/30. Feeling “emotional”, a by product of being grateful to our teachers and for the space in which we practice.

8/30…practiced in the back of the room today. As much as I enjoy the front of the room I think it’s good for me and my practice to move around!

17/30…just got home, still in a trance from class. In the driveway watching raindrops fall onto my car windows…pitter-patter…how soothing. : )
January 30th, 2013.
18 & 19/30…reflective this evening on the importance of letting go of attachments and being aware of who may be watching my practice. I found myself modifying my flow and listening more in order to support newer students. If I’m not conscious I may model poor habits or lead someone else into injury. Thanks for your guidance! — at Moksha Yoga Square One.

February 2nd, 2013.
21/30…getting “intimate” with my breath. Noticed when I find a pose challenging (i.e. my beloved plank) I’m cutting my breath short! Kept reminding myself to focus on my breathing (inhale and exhale) to remove the chatter in my mind. — at Moksha Yoga Square One.
Trying out another studio this AM. Continuing to be “intimate” with my breath. — at Moksha Yoga Hamilton.

Kind of funny how one can fall in love with a complete stranger. ♥
Finishing my challenge with a reflection about my intentions to: 1)Face my fears, 2) Think and act with compassion. Now its time to bring these intentions to life by practicing them beyond my mat.
