If you are reading this, you have let me know you want to join the challenge. In joining the challenge you are participating by practicing yoga 4 to 6 days a week for a minimum of 60 minutes, with at least one day a 75 minutes of yoga practice. If you practice yoga 4 days, the other 2 days can be another form of exercise like walking or swimming.
Yoga practice includes: asana, pranayama (breathing practices), meditation and relaxation. If you are walking slowly and focus on your movement with the breath, this is also practicing yoga. If you are doing an intentional relaxation - focusing the mind on releasing your tension and breathing with ease, you are practicing yoga.
If you are eating mindfully, focusing on the texture, color, scent and flavor of each bite, you are practicing your yoga. (however, eating will not count towards the 6 days of exercise).
