Before we moved to B.C., I went quite frequently to classes at the aforementioned studio. In preparation for the big move I did as much research as I could to source out a new studio, but things were looking grim. In nearly the first year we lived here I went to one class. I was so disappointed with the one studio's "excuse" for hot yoga that I gave up. And then a few months ago, Chinook Yoga relocated their studio to a new spot, so I checked it out! And wouldn't ya know... they even have the city's only practicing Moksha teacher.

At the beginning of September, I began a personal month long yoga-every-day challenge. It was certainly more of a challenge than I think I was expecting. Some days it was just meditation, some days it was a full-on hot class and some days it was a youtube video in the living room. Prince George is a small city not offering a ton of yoga options it seems. My work schedule is all over the map on any given day & I can't always fit a sweat session in between nutrition clients or serving shifts. I did my best to make it work, but it didn't quite. I certainly did miss a few days, but what is failure but an opportunity to pick yourself up from a new low and reach back up?
The month of November will be another attempt at achieving 30 consecutive days of yoga: I invite you to join me! Share your motivation, your experiences & share your sore muscles with me. The final day of November is my 26th birthday & I plan to go out with a bang!
