This is part of the 30 Day iPhone App Workout Challenge. Join and read all the posts here.
Welcome to day three, you fit people you! Now that we’ve run from zombies, done crunches like we were in a 90’s infomercial, and ate protein pancakes to help aid recovery, it’s time to do some yoga.
I’ve written about the benefits of yoga in the past, and today we’re doing yoga with one of my favorite yoga instructors, TARA STILES! For those of you who did the 30 Day Youtube Workout, you’ll remember doing several weight loss yoga and strength training yoga routines.
Well, Tara Stiles is back with an app that offers personalized yoga routines that grow with your ability.
Let’s get started!
App to Download: FitStar Yoga (free in the app store)
Workout Length: 40+ minutes
Type of Workout: Yoga
What you need: Yoga mat
About Fit Star Yoga
I like this app because during the workout, you can tap the screen to let the app know that a pose is too hard for you, and at the end of the session you can let the app know if any of the poses were too easy.
Future workouts will be adjusted to meet your exercise level.
This app is also great since you can also change
Do the yoga intro, and then one yoga workout of your choice. This app offers great themed yoga that keeps the sessions interesting. Since the app is so personalized, it’s up to you to decide what you want to do, just make sure you’re challenging yourself.
Today’s workout is about recovery as well as improving your flexibility, balance, and strength.
One of the things I’d suggest if you’re up to it is to try and make yoga a daily practice. If you’re up to it, I challenge you to do yoga each day for the rest of the 30 day challenge in addition to the rest of the daily challenges. It’s a great stress reliever and without yoga, there is no way I could stay sane.
Also, for those of you doing this challenge in real time, happy fall! I finally got to break out my favorite sweater since it went from 85 to 60 degrees overnight here in LA. (Los Angeles does seasons like college students do essays — haphazardly and overnight.)
Good luck and see you tomorrow!
