Straight to the core

So here’s my core evolution from March to August. I am not quite sure if it improved a lot but one thing I’m sure of is my flexibility improvement is great! 

I have quit drinking soda for 4 years now. For the past 15 days, I am on a no rice diet. I’m just checking if it will help me with my yoga. So far, I feel lighter and less bloated. I only eat wheat bread, oatmeal, banana and chicken. If veggies are available, I chose veggies over anything else. Too bad working at nights, does not give me a lot of options. 

My routine everyday is composed of 30 minute yoga. 20 minute core workout with side crunches and leg raises. I have only been doing this for a month and this is the result. Maybe if I continue, I will see drastic changes?! 🙌🏼 Let’s see then. 


Yoga for hips and leg opening

Preparing for my hanumanasana pose requires a lot of stretching. You can’t dive in and just do a split. That’s a recipe for disaster.

So before I give it a shot, I make sure I do a warm up yoga for 30 minutes with focus on hip and leg opening. Everyday I make sure I move forward even if it’s just a centimeter. Slowly I will build foundation just by doing this. No need to rush! I never even thought I will be able to put my elbows down in the floor 😁😁😁.

Now I can even put my head down. How amazing is yoga? I think everyone should do yoga at least once in their lifetime to experience all it’s benefits and awesomeness.

Yoga on!
