When I first began tri-ing, I did yoga once a week with the Expert. I was amazed at the benefits. But as I ramped up the “important” workouts (swimming, biking and running), my yoga habit fell away.
And now I am left with decreased flexibility and lots of hip and back pain. Time to get yoga-ing again.
In a very timely way, September is National Yoga Month! …and one of my favorite sportswear companies, Athleta, is kicking it off with a bang. I am excited to be involved because I want to get my butt back in my yoga pants (and not because I like the stretch… which I do….but….)
I love my Athleta catalog. While I may never have the ideal body, I love that the women in the Athleta pages embody fitness, strength and beauty – not just skin and bones with big boobs. I see those women and think, yes, that’s what I’m talking about!
With squeezing in 10-20 housr of training a week… who has time for yoga? And how, as a triathlete, will yoga truly benefit you as a runner, cyclist and swimmer?
Do you want to try yoga, but have no idea where to start? Here’s a host of resources for Yoga Newbies.
Finally, if you love a contest – there’s a yoga Instagram contest. For details, you can go here: Embrace the Yoga Challenge: Poses for the Instagram Contest.
And in the meantime…Happy Yoga-ing!
