Plank challenge flow

Hi friends! Hope you’re enjoying the day. I’m here relaxing at home after yesterday’s procedure, which went well! I’m thankful to my friend Erin for taking over the blog today with an awesome plank challenge flow. I’ll be back with Friday Faves in the morning. <3

BEEP BEEP! Hold tight, beauties! I’m in the driver’s seat here at The Fitnessista today so let’s all grab a drink– err, wait– back up. First let’s take this analogy out of the car and into my house where we can hang out safely, shall we?

Anyway, HI! My name is Erin Motz, I’m the co-founder of Bad Yogi, and I have a confession: I used to think yoga was only for old people and lazy fitness types who wanted to do some kind of activity without actually having to work hard. This sounds horrible, I know, especially coming from a yoga teacher, but I’m just being honest here!

Yoga teacher training

Lots of snuggles and downtime over here:  Even though I hate when Livi is sick, the cuddles and downtime have been amazing. After a frantic week last week, some forced relaxation is much-appreciated, especially when I get to spend it relaxing with noodle. Usually she rarely sits still, but we’ve been camped on the couch […]
