My New Obsession

Yoga. or more specifically Tara Stile's approach to yoga. Its completely woo/spirituality free. Which for me makes it actually enjoyable as just exercise.  No inner peace solves all your problems rubbish, no inaccessible language, and she's a really good instructor, and she posts a ton of stuff for free on you tube. 

I've been attempting to follow her beginner's routine she filmed for live strong woman on Youtube. 

I just roll out my mat on the living room floor with a full water bottler and attempt to keep up. I'm still terrible, but I'm making progress which for me is awesome. I was about as flexible as a plank before I started this. Its great! Its free and I can do it in the privacy of my own home.

I've tried various work out DVDS and fitness classes in my time, but Tara Stiles has really nailed the combination of informative and effective with ease of at home use. Bonus, you don't feel like a fool when you do it.

So I have a bit of a girl crush on her buy guys I feel more flexible that I ever have! My total lack of balance is slowly and surely becoming an actual sense of balance. Even if side planks still totally defeat me I feel like eventually, some day I will manage them.

Anyone else have any newly, mildly creepy obsessions they'd like to share?

  1. Oh I loves me some yoga. My favorite yoga instructor has moved on, but she was pretty no-nonsense too :)
