Doing this morning yoga challenge for the past week - or week and a half if you kept going over the weekend - gave you a chance to set a mindful morning aromatherapy intention and try it out for a short period of time. An experiment in altering and adding to your morning routine.
How did it go? Think through the journal prompts for reflection and consider what impact the challenge had on your morning routine, and on the way your mornings felt, in general.

Try the Morning Yoga Challenge Again
If you didn't get a chance to download the yoga extras - the affirmations, meditation moments, etc., or to try the challenge with the essential oil blends, I encourage you to try it again once you have everything in place. You can get the downloads here, and order the essential oil blends here.
If you're reading this post and you've never had a consistent practice, would trying a 7-day challenge, doing one pose a day appeal to you? Let me know in a comment.
For me, it was wonderful! They were all poses I had tried before, but without really focusing on how they felt. Trying one a day didn't require a lot of time, didn't hurt, and felt very empowering, especially when combined with aromatherapy blends and other mindful techniques.
See you next time!
