How to keep motivated during the challenge? It’s best to plan your achievements and monitor your progress. That is why we have prepared a calendar for you for 12 days of yoga practice. You’ll find that the mat is not the finish – it’s just the start!
Yoga or running – maybe it is worth combining both activities?

The facts speak for themselves: runners who warm up properly before training and stretch after having much less injury, while running faster, longer and safer.
You will achieve such effects even with minimal effort, practising yoga 15 minutes before and 15 minutes after training. Its strength lies in stretching and regenerating muscles, in proper breathing techniques, and in learning the body’s balance and awareness.
