If you have been following me on Instagram, you would have noticed that these days every day I post a new yoga pose. I am not showing off here and I have a long way to go to reach my pre-baby yoga fitness but this is for a special cause.
Yoga gives back is a yoga challenge for June that has become really popular on social media. The focus is on Ashtanga method and giving back to the community. It’s hosted by the talented @beachyogagirl and @kinoyoga and is sponsored by @aloyoga and @yogagivesback.
Yoga Gives Back provides micro-loans and educational funding to the poor in India. 50,000 hash-tagged posts and @aloyoga will donate $1,000, 100,000 = $2,500 , 150,000 = @beachyogagirl and @kinoyoga will personally match @aloyoga’s $2,500 donation for a total of $5,000! Since it is for a good cause, I thought why not do my tiny (very tiny) bit to give back to the community? So, despite my less-than-perfect yoga poses, I decided to take the plunge.
Here are some of my poses:
To participate in the challenge:

I actually started late and had some catching up to do. Although it is the 20th day today, I am on my 14th day as I had missed some days due to being poorly, so if you would like brave this challenge, there is still time.
Don’t forget to follow and tag me on Instagram if you do start.
