30 Day Yoga Challenge - Pose 1 and 2

Yesterday I started a 30 Day Yoga Challenge. All it is is adding a new yoga pose into my day.

Just a little while ago my GP told me that I have Spondyloarthritis in my spine. Every joint in my body feels affected by arthritis and most times any type of movement hurts. I was advised to stop or cut down on all my physical activities, which was devastating news, and to increase, or in my case re-introduce yoga into my daily routine. Now the only problem I have with yoga is that my joints are weak and sore. Its difficult to weight bear on them. From a few months ago being able to tolerate any type of activity or exercise to not being able to open a jar is very discouraging. BUT I just can't let myself get worse.

So, I will start off slow and from the beginning again. Join me in my challenge if you can :)
