What does yoga mean to you? #ShareYourOM for National Yoga Month!

I’ll admit it. It’s been far too long since I’ve gotten my body into the Downward Dog, Warrior, Rabbit or Headstand Poses. Okay, not the Headstand–who am I kidding about that one?

I think about all of this from time to time while I’m at the gym. I’m there, squatting, dead lifting, benching, curling and I see the yoga girls walk by on their way to the studio. “Maybe I’ll drop in on a session for old time’s sake,” I say. I remember how good it felt; a different type of good from my beloved weight lifting or running. I was centered, calm, limber… But then weeks pass. No dropping in for me. Big yoga fail on my part.


But this month will be different! September is National Yoga Month. So whether it’s in a class, in my home gym with a DVD, or in my own backyard, I will be partaking in the festivities.
What festivities? What’s going on you ask? Even if you didn’t ask, you know I’m going to tell you. 😀 The awesome company that is Athleta is kicking off the #ShareYourOM campaign TODAY! All month long, they are encouraging all of you lovely people out there to share what yoga means to you.
athleta #shareyouromHow do you do it? There are many ways! You can do what I just did–take a pic of yourself (Yes, a selfie–sue me, I love that word. AND selfies.) and Tweet it, Facebook it, Pinterest it, Instagram it, blog it, etc. with the #ShareYourOM hashtag. Let the world know what yoga means to you. For instance, this is what yoga means to me:

“To me, yoga means being present in the moment, comfortable in my own skin and learning how to be strong, focused, and connected to my surroundings. #ShareYourOM”

Easy, peasy.

  • Yoga is a real pleasure for body and soul. But it requires dedication and huge physical capacities. To prepare your body for regular trainings and to improve your results the proper nutrition is vital. I am taking Military Grade Nutritionals. These dietary supplements were developed for soldiers, but they are good for everyone, who wants to keep fit. They provide sustainable results and help me improve my shape quickly.
