· Doing yoga might help you find some ‘inner peace’. Just becoming aware of your breath can surprisingly bring you a lot of calm during times of stress. During yoga practice, we do gentle exercises that bring strength and flexibility to the body. Yoga is a non-striving practice, and so it is a great time to cultivate self-acceptance of your body and mind just as it is. Through yoga, you gradually find the connection between your thoughts, emotions, physical body and how they all affect each-other. This increased self-awareness will help you become more in tune with your body and mind.
Tomorrow the August Yoga Challenge starts. Anyone can get involved. Send me a message in my ask, and I’ll make a little team on Tumblr.
What does it involve?
- Everyday do a little bit of yoga. Preferably go to a class once a day in August at your favourite studio. Or do self-practice at home. Try practice for 1 hour a day.
- Also, try and do some SEVA. SEVA is selfless service. An example is to raise money for your favourite NGO.
- Journal about your yoga challenge, write how it goes. Write daily.
Are you keen to join me on a 30 day yoga challenge in August?
Doing yoga everyday in August?
Commit to your mat this August, by doing a bit of yoga everyday. Also let’s try and do some SEVA (selfless service) by raising funds for this awesome organisation called Home from Home, please email Pippa Shaper at email@example.com for more info.
Like my page Coffee and Yoga on Facebook, and lets create a team.
Come on, lets motivate each other.

For my sister
A big part of the equation of personal adult growth for me is to learn to except constructive criticism. I’ve made progress in this department, but I still secretly hate it and will secretly (momentarily) hate the criticizer for whatever they say.
Today I received some criticism during my yoga…
I must admit, I am feeling very down today. I have had a chronic sore throat for what seems like 6 months now. It is really affecting my daily life, and I can’t seem to do a full primary series Ashtanga practice without feeling faint/exhausted.
I am going to the ENT today. Hopefully he can get to the bottom of this. I feel like a fake yogi… surely all this yoga should be helping me to get better?
All I want is HEALTH.
