I love Instagram. I have to say that it’s probably my favorite social media channel at the moment. I love how visual it is and how much community and connection it creates.
I have enjoyed connecting with the blogging community and my readers via Instagram but the yoga community is also rocking on Instagram. One thing that has become quite popular over the last 6 months or so is yoga challenges. They’re 30 days challenges with a theme where you perform a different pose every day.
Until now I have resisted participating in these challenges but when Michael Gannon announced he was hosting a “Hashtanga September Challenge,” I couldn’t resist. First, the name hashtanga (a play off of ashtanga + hashtags)…money. Second, Michael Gannon is awesome. He owns a yoga studio in Playa del Carmen and travels internationally to teach yoga. I met him when I was down in Mexico for my last yoga retreat.
So Hashtanga requires you to Instagram video your way through the Ashtanga Primary Series. Read my post about what ashtanga is and why I love it here.
I thought I would share weekly recaps of the challenge during the month of September. It’s a fun way to share my practice with y’all!
