How you can participate in the challenge:

  1. Post your photo of the daily pose on tumblr and tag it with #yogislovedad. We will be tracking the tag and liking/commenting/reblogging them.
    (Optional) You can also tag us: #yogipeach and #fatgirlgetsfitatlast in your posts too
  2. In each of your posts, include a note about something you love about your dad or any great dad you know, or tell us what YOU love about BEING a dad!  Share some personal stories about your dad, reminisces about your childhood, perhaps some of his ‘words of wisdom’, or tell us about any special dad you know!
  3. (Optional) You can even post a photo of your dad along with some or all of your poses as we build our cores and improve our balance, two things that all dads need!

Remember to have fun, breathe, and enjoy your time on the mat. Never force your body into any pose if you do not feel ready. Discomfort is fine, but NEVER PAIN. These poses are beginner to intermediate, but you should always feel free to modify any pose to match what your body is feeling on any given day. Remember to enjoy it! We are not trying to do yoga perfectly, we are simply trying to improve our minds and bodies. Yoga is a PRACTICE, never perfection.

You can click on any of the poses for a link to a video tutorial on the pose. If you still have questions, feel free to message us and we’ll be happy to help.

We hope that you enjoy this month’s challenge and our celebration of DAD! We’re so excited to practice with you. We can’t wait to see all of your posts!

Namaste.

Today I didn’t want to wake up or do anything. I had a healthy breakfast snuggled watching tv, then worked out and did some yoga. Even though I saw I still had a way to go, I felt a little better.

Sometimes it’s not about the perfect moments, poses or photos. Sometimes it’s just about you, knowing you did everything you could do to take care of yourself, when your brain was screaming exactly the opposite.

Day 5 of #YogisLoveDad Yoga Challenge. This little boat pose workout with variations is a killer! Really great ab workout!  Boat Pose with variations

One thing I admired about my dad was that he had to quit school in the 6th grade to work and help support his family, but he taught himself so much from books that he was able to help me with my algebra and geometry homework in high school.

Taking pictures of the poses help so much in your form ^▽^ They help with remembering where your eyes should look, to open up your chest,  keeping your legs straight and aligning your arms!
I also learned poses are harder than they look (⊙.⊙✿)
