Runners LOVE Yoga, The Yoga Collective Membership Contest

One of my goals for 2015 was to do more yoga. I have become envious of those I see posting photos of their back bends, headstands, and array of flexible poses. I, on the other hand, am probably one of the most inflexible people in the world. This quality (or lack thereof) has more than likely helped contribute to my numerous running injuries. So, I thought that I would give yoga a try and see where it would take me.

This is not how you do a back-bend.

I am truly a beginner, so I have been sticking to the basics for the last few months in effort of perfecting them. The best I can do is pose good while laying on the mat, so that's all you are going to see from me until I get better.

Although I have a long way to go before I would ever consider myself a yogi, I have noticed major improvements in my flexibility. Not only that, yoga has really helped clean my mind. I find that I feel refreshed mentally when I do it. It's perfect for before or after work just to put yourself in the proper mindset! I couldn't imagine life without it!

Just the other week, I was given the option of having a year membership to The Yoga Collective, an online yoga community with high def classes which you can access at any time! I did not hesitate in accepting the offer. They have wide variety of videos that can satisfy any yoga enthusiast. Whether you are a beginner (me) or an expert, have all day or no time at all, they have a yoga video for you! The Yoga Collective even has online yoga videos that focus on balance, flexibility, back bends, meditation, and more!

When I logged in for the first time, I was overwhelmed by all of the videos that filled my screen! I wanted to try them all! But, I started with my major concern, flexibility! I went for the Yin Deep Stretch video which was great for a beginner, like myself. It was very slow-moving and relaxing. There it didn't change from pose to pose to quickly which I loved. In videos I have tried in the past, I felt that they moved me out of a pose too quickly and I never was able to take full advantage of it. The instructor was also amazing. She was confident and walked you through every move. She never advised to move too quickly or push into a move past the point of comfort.

I believe that The Yoga Collective is something great to take advantage of for both mind and body health, which is why I am giving away TWO 1 year memberships to the Yoga Collective (A $130 value!).
