National Yoga Month
It’s no secret that I love to exercise. My favorite way to unwind is running, and if you’ve been following me for the last few months, you know I’m running my second marathon next week. (Eeek!) I’ve got a mix of emotions going into the race, but I’ve still got a week and a half of training. My training schedule had me cross training at least once a week. Yoga For Runners is a great way to cross train. I’m always sore in places I didn’t know existed the day after. It’s also a way to channel my focus and reflect on the rest of my training. It gets me to a happy place.

September is national Yoga month! Whether you’re an experienced yoga master, or a newbie looking to explore it, yoga is a great way to get fit and focused. Athleta is all about yoga and helping celebrate it this month. Through September, you can go to Complimentary Athleta Yoga Classes. Every Saturday during September, Athleta will host FREE yoga classes in all stores. Plus, when you attend a class you’ll be entered to WIN a private yoga class and shopping party for you and your friends!



Last, but most certainly not least, there is an awesome Instagram contest going on: Embrace The Yoga Challenge: Poses For the Instagram Contest. Six lucky winners will each receive a $200 Athleta Giftcard plus an Ariel Necklace by Satya Jewelry to remind you to embrace life’s journey and stay true to your authentic self. Pretty awesome right? I know I could get some pretty awesome Yoga wear with a $200 Athleta Giftcard.

    I have always wanted to be consistent with Yoga. I am terrible with balance! I didn’t know about Athleta.. Looks very very nice though!

    Your photos were great! I use yoga because it helps me with my painful back! It is a good way to stretch out my muscles, and it really does make me feel more limber! I really like yoga!
