Happy Father’s Day and Happy International Yoga Day! It’s also the Summer Solstice, which marks the official first day of summer.
Today over 10,000 people will practice yoga in Times Square in New York City in honor of the solstice and International Yoga Day. The event is taking place from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. and benefits three yoga charities. You can live stream the event online. Check out the website for more details.
One of the most personally rewarding things about writing this blog for the last 5+ years has been how many people have reached out to me to let me know they tried their first yoga class because they were encouraged by my posts about it. Many have gone on to establish a regular practice and more than I can count have gone on to pursue teacher training themselves. This alone is enough reason for the 1,600+ posts that I’ve written. It’s been an honor for me to share my yoga journey with all of you.
In honor of International Yoga Day, here are a few of my favorite yoga-related posts:
There are many, many more yoga posts. Check out the Yoga Page for more and please, please, please let me know if you have questions or post requests/ideas regarding yoga.
Now for a quick overview of this week’s workouts…very light week.
4 mile run (last workout in Florida and it was a sweaty one!)
Birthday hot yoga!
1 mile run + 20 minute at-home tabata workout (posted here)
3 mile walk
TBD but probably a run or yoga…or I may even go to the gym. Stay tuned! 🙂
Do you practice yoga? How long have you been practicing? What does your practice do for you?
