This was one of the first weekends this month that we have been in town so it was nice to take it easy and not do much. We did make the trek up to Malibu and it was a perfect day of sitting outside and sipping some wine.
I also spent lots of time lounging around with this girl.
I realized I haven’t updated lately on the half marathon training. Well, it’s definitely creeping up on us and is just over a month out…yikes! Today we ran 7 miles and will ramp up to 10 in the next 2 weeks. Today was a slow run for me, but I’m just happy to get the miles in and try not to worry about my pace so much. I’m shooting for running under a 10 min. mile so finishing under 2 hours 10 minutes would be great!
Disclosure: I received a free six-month trial of MyYogaWorks in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I recently had the opportunity to try out MyYogaWorks online yoga classes. It’s funny, I was thinking a few weeks ago that I need to get back on the yoga-train and received an email asking if I wanted to try out the online site! Must have been meant to be!
There are many times during the week that I don’t feel like driving to a yoga studio and dealing with parking, getting there earlier to get a spot, and doing a class that isn’t tailored to what I specifically want to do. Nothing beats the convenience of online classes, I can just pull up my ipad and get going.
The classes are broken up into beginner, intermediate, and advanced. I like this model because as I go on, I know I can switch things up and progress. I’m not extremely experienced with yoga so I have only done some beginner classes. They range from 5 min – 90 min which is super easy to squeeze into a busy day.
They also make it super-easy in the search function to choose the time you want, the purpose you want to focus on and the body parts you want to target. There are 20 different categories so there is something for everyone. So far I have taken classes focusing on energizing, stress reduction, stretch, and calming. The instructors are very specific and the pace of each class was just right for me- not too fast, not too slow. They also show modifications for all the poses, which is especially helpful for me 🙂
I really like that there are different instructors throughout the site. Some workout videos can get boring after listening to the same instructor and the same cueing over and over again.
The site also has a “Journey Series” that are a sequence of videos with a specific focus like yoga for runners (I need to try this one for sure), nap time yoga for moms, surfing and roadtrip yoga. Love it all!
The price is extremely reasonable, $15/month after a 14 day free trial. And you lucky blog readers can use this code: bloggermonth and receive a free one month trail! You can get started here.
I’m pretty happy I have this subscription for 6 months so that I can try out everything this site has to offer….seriously it seems to have something for everyone!
The only complaint I have is that there isn’t any music playing in the background and I’m a music dependent exerciser. So I turned on my Pandora radio as I went through the workouts and that easily solved the problem.
Have you tried online yoga classes? What do you think?
Thanks for reading as always!
