With nervousness and trepidation I put my name down for the 30 day challenge. I'm not sure why I wanted to be involved. Carrying a few extra kg's might have been a motivating factor. Curiosity to see if I could complete something soley on my own merits could have been another or just because I instinctively knew it would be good for me.

Yes. I have lost inches and my clothes fit better. Yes I am proud of myself but once completed I can genuinely say it has been a life changing experience.

I feel different.  That 30 days helped bring clarity to my thoughts and perspective to my future. My body showed my mind the price I have paid for partaking in too much good food and wine. My mind showed my body that even though that's the case it doesn't take much to start getting everything back into alignment.

There is a feeling of camaraderie as you go through the 30 day challenge. At certain times when the irritation of my own thoughts and ailments persecuted me, I took heed in knowing that some in the group of like minded individuals also practising were being plagued.

It is a personal journey. It is not easy, at times demanding and sometimes uncomfortable but like life, it always seems a little easier when you have people beside you. I have and would reccommend the 30 day challenge to anyone and everyone. It was an encounter that showed me I have just begun. The 30 days have finished but I carry on practising 4-5 times a week knowing that  the benefits of doing modern yoga will no doubt hold me in good stead for the rest of my life.
