Yoga has been part of my life for quite a long time now. I’ve joined many different studios, and I’ve been part of many different communities. However, none quite like the community I’ve joined at CorePower Yoga.
For those that don’t know, CorePower Yoga is a yoga studio with many different locations throughout the United States. All classes are heated with different amounts of humidity piped into the rooms. The classes vary in difficulty with one of the classes, Yoga Sculpt, incorporating free weights mixed with yoga positions into the class for a much more challenging workout. Like, kick-your-ass-every-single-time-challenging. Kinda like yoga bootcamp. No joke.
Personally, I am a fan of both this sculpt class along with their C2 class, which is a more traditional yoga flow with vinyasas, asanas, and a core workout in between. I’ve tried my best to attend classes at least 3 times a week, but with the holidays (and it being cold af), I actually only attended 5 classes in December.
However, it’s a new year — #NewYearNewMe, right? CorePower has issued a challenge to all of its members to try to attend 10, 20, or 30 classes for the month of January, and I decided to take on the 20 class challenge. So what’s my progress? I’m up to 8 classes so far, and it’s only January 12th. Yoga 5 times a week? Nothing has ever felt better. Since it’s January, this challenge is also a good way to kickstart my fitness and workout routine again for 2018.
I’m a huge fan of yoga not only for the way it changes my body, but also for it’s mental benefits. You’re encouraged to make an intention at the start of class, and my intention lately has been the mantra “Good vibes, good people.” I repeat it constantly to match the cadence of my breath, and it serves as a reminder of what I want to bring into my life in abundance in this coming year.
I’ll keep you updated on if (and when) I complete the challenge. Either way, if there is a CorePower near you, I highly advise you make a visit (plus your first week is FREE!). Not even just CorePower, but yoga in general. I cannot say enough good things about how it has changed so many things in my life for the better.
In fact, I’ll probably continue to tell you how much I love yoga on this blog. Yes, I’m one of those. You’re welcome.
