FEBRUARY FITNESS CHALLENGE CALENDER
YOU READ THAT RIGHT. This is something I've done here before but I am SUPER excited about it because I have been majorly struggling with motivation for my own workouts lately, and as a fitness instructor myself I know that the best way to get back into it is with SUPPORT! Having friends to keep you accountable when you don't want to show up for yourself is important, and we've got a really great community here to tap into. So let's tap into it! I made a fitness calendar with simple challenges you can do daily to get back into the daily habit of sweating and building strength mentally and physically. Some are easier, some are harder, and all are do-able and modifiable for anyone who wants to participate. You can just do it for fun, but if you thrive on competition like me and you'd like a little extra motivation, you can track your points during the challenge. The three people will the highest point total at the end of the month will win prizes! But we'll cover that more later.
First - this is just for fun. I'm no doctor (obvs), but I am a certified yoga instructor and reiki practitioner and have a lot of knowledge about the human body. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Second - the prizes are also just for fun. You can absolutely participate publicly with no intention to win or just print out the calendar and challenge yourself at home, on your own.
Third - If we all like this, and we have fun, maybe we can do a fun challenge each month! Can't wait to hear what you think. In the meantime, challenge details and printable calendar below. Enjoy!
Give yourself 1 point per day when you complete the day's challenges and post them to your IG story or feed. You can achieve up to 30 total points by the end of the month if you complete the bonus challenge, too! Be sure to tag @good_saint + #goodsaintsweats so I can see your progress and you get credit, too.
The 3 people who complete the most challenges AND post about them using the correct tags will each WIN a 1 lb. container of organic, vegan Four Sigmatic Superfood Protein AND a ticket to Yoga at the Farm on 3/1 in Anaheim, CA.
This challenge was designed to be FUN - so please modify the moves as needed to support your body and your needs. Good luck + can't wait to see your posts!
GENTLE 25 MINute YOGA FLOW (video)
Hi friends! I've been wanting to release a yoga video on my YouTube for SO LONG and I have no real excuse except I'm a busy girl and for so long I was SO intimidated by video. Editing, speaking into a microphone - eep! Daunting! But I finally tackled it and now that I did, I can't believe I was so scared. It's not perfect, but it's a great place to start.
This is an accessible, easily-modified flow for everyone, and is extra awesome because it clocks in at 25 mins - which means you can easily squeeze it in when you've only got time for a half hour on the mat. No excuses to skip you when "you" time takes less than 30 minutes. Can't wait to hear what you guys think! My intention is to make more of these videos for you, assuming you enjoy them. Monthly? Weekly, maybe? We'll see. Let's start here. Grab your mat, and let's get started babes.
Once you're finished, I'd love your feedback here or on my youtube page itself. Thanks in advance for flowing and sharing your thoughts and of course, namaste!
