I cannot believe it is already July! This year is honestly going by so quickly. For todays #mondaymotivation post, I am going to share my yoga journey with you 🙂
First things first, I am not in any way a yogi. This might be weird for you to read since I have done quite a few yoga posts, but I am more of a lifting weights kinda gal 😉 That being said, I do like to stretch and improve my flexibility and balance skills.
This picture is a ‘progress’ picture showing my progress over a month with this pose. In the first picture I could just get my leg to the 90 degree mark and I was standing on the ground. With a bit of practice of balancing on the BOSU ball and stretching, I can get my leg past the 90 degree mark and balance on the BOSU ball in the second picture! 😀 This was a proud moment for me! But I know I still have quite a long way to go until I look professional, and have a good range of flexibility.
I urge anyone to try balancing on a BOSU ball before or after your workouts. I have been doing this for a couple of months now and it really engages the core and works on control within the body. I usually do a lot of BOSU balance work on my leg days to warm up my hip flexors and engage the muscles before lifting weights.
Happy Monday lovelies! Smash your goals for this week, and don’t give up on your dreams! P.S. I have a very exciting recipe to share with you this week 😀 So stay on the look out for my next post!
