Free Yoga during National Yoga Month

National-Yoga-MonthGuys, September is National Yoga Month. I’m not sure how I found out about it — perhaps on the radio driving to the climbing gym to do my yoga. How funny.

After a long relaxing break in Newfoundland, I got back into my regular fitness regime last week. I went to a couple of yoga classes, and holy quac — not going to yoga for over a month seriously limits my already poor flexibility. It felt really great getting back in and stretching my hips during yin yoga, a favourite class of mine to go to.

Did you know that you can often get a one week free trial to a local yoga studio near you, during this National Yoga Month? It’s available both in the USA and Canada. Can’t leave my Canadian buddies out. I was interested to see if any local yoga studios within a 5 mile radius was in on this, and three studios were! So it’s a pretty good way to test out a few studios to find your best fit, without spending money trying to figure out where you want to practice.

Do you practice yoga?

What are your favourite poses?
If we’re being real, child’s pose and savasana are my favourite. But if I had to choose a third, I’d say the half swan pose except your leg isn’t on the ground, it’s the one where you look like you’re about to take off on a running race? What is that one called?

What style of yoga do you do?
Yin for me, I love holding the deep semi-painful stretches for lengthy periods of time

Do you have any pet peeves during yoga?
I’m not a fan of the loud breathers or the people who are loud in general coming into the room after yoga has started

  1. I had no idea it was yoga month. Cool! I try to get in one yoga class a week at least, and haven’t been fitting one in lately, (which I just so happen to mention in my workout recap today). Glad you’re back into it. My favorite pose is the backbend or wheel pose, it just opens me up and feels good. By the way, I have a Bay Area readers giveaway today for two weeks of barre classes … share with your pals!

  2. I practice yoga at home, so I don’t have to deal with other people. I think loud breathers would bother me too or people who groan lol! Only thing that breaks my concentration is my cat. Sometimes when I’m in my super zone (which is always before everyone else wakes up) he will decide it’s time to act bonkers and chase nothing lol!
