Hello, July!


I can't believe it is July already! I decided that I wanted to share my yoga goals every month. This month is about focusing on me and working on bettering myself.

Asanas (poses) of the Month: Poses I will be working on for the month
  • Forearm Stand (Pincha Mayurasana) & Scorpion Pose - I started these two poses a few weeks ago and I want to keep practicing them. Ultimately, I want to get into the poses smoothly, as well as hold them for longer than a few breaths.
  • Splits (Hanumanasana) - This has been a pose I have been working on since I started gymnastics in third grade (ha!). I will stick to my stretching plan to get this. I may or may not get it this month but I feel like I am so close on my left side!
  • Boat Pose (Paripurna Navasana) - The picture below is not boat pose. I have can't-keep-my-legs-straight syndrome. I need to work on my core strength and start getting those legs straight!

Mudras: Yoga in Your Hands by Gertrud Hirschi - This is part of my reading list for Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) and I am liking it so far. Hirschi talks about mudras and how we can use it in our daily life.
Light on Yoga by B.K.S. Iyengar - This is also part of my yoga reading for YTT. I honestly do not know much about this book but I have heard that is a must read for all yogis out there.
The Spiritual Girl's Guide to Dating: Your Enlightened Path to Love, Sex, and Soulmates by Amy Mercree - Okay, don't let the title scare you. This book has helped me so much recently in moving on past relationships (all kinds, not just romantic). I am only part way into it and I love it already. It is really helping me better myself and it is the perfect book to have come into my life. (:


"Let Karel be Karel". This just means to let me be me without any judgments or thinking of others. Often times, we make decisions or take actions based on what others will think. This month is all about bettering myself and finding who I am (finding my passions, being me). I will not be afraid to show who I truly am. I will not feel obligated to do things I don't want to. I will do me, staying intuitive, and being myself. You can use this mantra as well (of course, changing my name into yours)!
