Let’s Go Streaking!

No, not running about without any clothes on. Inspired by Ag’s running blog, I’m considering starting a streak on July 1st. Mine won’t be a running streak or a general exercise streak, but I’m thinking of starting a yoga streak.

See, I started yoga in high school at the tender age of 14. I had B.K.S. Iyengar’s book for guidance. The pictures in it are really great, and years later when I took my first class with a teacher, she was impressed at how well I knew the postures.

Now, as a more experienced yogini, I realize that classes with a certified teacher are really important, so I definitely recommend that to any beginner in yoga. I especially like Iyengar and Ansuara for beginners, as they stress proper alignment and form in the postures.

Anyway, I’ve fallen out of my yoga practice as I’ve started doing more vigorous exercise, but I think I could find the time to do at least a few rounds of Surya Namaskara each day. So, starting Friday, I’m going to start a yoga streak, where I do at least 5 rounds of Surya A and a closing Savasana, and try to do my entire home practice sequence, which is based loosely on the fundamentals of Ashtanga yoga.

Anyone else want to start a personal challenge streak in July?
