#backtobackbends Challenge

If you are friends with me on Facebook you would have been bombarded with photos of me doing yoga.

During the month of July I took part in the Back to Backbends challenge sponsored by Alo Yoga and hosted by Kino Yoga and Beach Yoga Girl. Each day we had to tackle a different back bend. They were all pre-established and set to build on one another to work on back strength and flexibility. I learned so much about what I was capable of doing during July. Between working on fixing my shoulder injury and building strength in my practice, I have really seen some major improvements. These challenges are an amazing way to get involved in the Yoga community and expand your practice. 

I hope to take part in another one soon!
