#AloBoutMentalHealth2

Hosted by: @this_dog_is_down @rachelbyogini @traveling_yogigirl @michellestaudenherz @twistedgalpal2.0

May 12-21

As the month of May is Mental Health awareness month, we bring you round 2 of a yoga challenge dedicated to discussing the importance of mental health. This challenge is dedicated to how we can let go of ego and lean into openly talking about the effects of mental health issues. Participants will be given a series of journal prompts to reflect on their mental health and how their ego keeps them from sharing about mental illnesses along with a pose for each day. This challenge will help bring awareness to a subject that has been seen as taboo for far too long as well as help participants reach out of their comfort zone.

#AloInvertOrExtend

Hosted by: @silaatikol @albafityoga @francescamanoni @inacincinnis @yoganna5

May 17-24

When you practice yoga, you start moving your body, specially your spine in ways that you normally wouldn’t in everyday life! Some of these ways are inversions and spinal extensions. Both inversions and extensions have numerous benefits, but what they have in common is, they increase your spinal health! When you put your body into inversions, you create space between your discs and relieve pressure from sitting, running and bending. When you perform back extensions you strengthen your back and increase your ability to coordinate your spinal movement. As a result you eliminate the risk of back pain and back injuries! So join us and let’s play through these fun asanas while improving our spinal health!

⁣#AloFlowerLessons

Hosted by: @laura__morenob @clacuru @foxyogamom @esteryoga

May 17-26

Flowers aren't just mesmerizing to look at and a pleasing scent. Take a closer look at them, see them beyond the external factors to understand what they are silently trying to tell us and what they are trying to teach us. Take a Rose for example; besides the obvious beauty and lovely scent, there are sharp thorns for protection. Look at the Lotus flower as a symbol of purity and growth. Even when its roots are in the dirtiest waters and starting life in complete darkness, it produces the most beautiful flower. Join us and discover beautiful life lessons from flowers.
