Completely Unrelated To Books...Seven Days of Yoga

Lynn from The Next Chapter is hosting the Seven Day Yoga Challenge this week. It has nothing to do with books or libraries so why am I posting about it?

Well, sometimes you need a jump start or a change in pace to shake up your reading a book completely outside your genre comfort zone. Yoga was hobby of mine during college.  I attended yoga classes at my school's fitness center whenever I had free time between my studies and other responsibilities.  It was a fun stress reliever that was different from any other activity in my life at the time.

Today I spend my days working in a library and my free time reading, BookCrossing, blogging and attempting to keep up with all my Google Reader feeds. So when I saw Lynn's yoga challenge it reminded me that even though books are such a huge part of my life, I need to throw other stuff in the break up my reading, to relieve stress after work and to keep everything feeling fresh (and fun).  That's why I decided to take the Seven Day Yoga Challenge. Hopefully it'll spark my passion for yoga again.

If you want to learn more, head over to Lynn's blog and cheer on the other participants.  I'll update this post throughout the week to share my progress in this challenge.  Have a great week everyone!

  1. Thanks for participating! Glad you're enjoying the challenge.

    I've been practicing in the evening, it's so great to stretch out and relax before bed. I am going to mix things up and try Jillian's Yoga Meltdown tonight though. I heard that it's quite the work out. ;)

  2. Oh, I've done Jillian's Yoga Meltdown once. Yeah it's intense. I prefer The Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga with Bob more...Jillian feels a bit out of place with yoga instruction. Both are really great workouts. Let me know how you like it.
