#WhyIYoga Giveaway: A Month of Unlimited CorePower Yoga Classes

This post is sponsored by CorePower Yoga

This giveaway is now closed. This is why. Why I smile. Why I stress. Why I live. Why I love. Why I push. Why I pull back. Why I do. Why I don’t. Why I am. This is #WhyIYoga.

I’m not a serious yogi, but I do love to attend one class a week if possible. I like how it brings balance to my other workouts – running and weightlifting. I grew up as a gymnast and didn’t have to pursue working out on my own until I went to college. Working out was always part of my daily life but I didn’t really “workout” — I just went to practice. So over the past ten years I’ve explored all sorts of workouts to find what works best for me.

Spin was never really my thing and I have mixed feelings about barre. I like running … for 30 minutes at a time… and weightlifting for how strong and powerful they make me feel. While I do feel strong after a solid warrior pose, I also like how yoga stretches me out and makes me feel physically balanced. But the real reason #WhyIYoga is because it helps bring me inner calmness. During practice I can focus on my breath and the poses and calm whatever stressful or negative thoughts are plaguing me.

I’m teaming up with CorePower Yoga to bring you the chance to practice your yoga unlimited for the month of November in celebration of the opening of their South End location this fall. The giveaway runs for a week, and you can find all of the details in the widget below. Please note: you can redeem the prize at any CorePower Yoga location during the month of November, but you do need to be a new client to win.

You can always create your own #WhyIYoga image to share on your social channels here.

FenwaYoga with CorePower Yoga

This post was sponsored by CorePower Yoga

What’s more Boston than an evening at Fenway Park, am I right? Rather than watching a game, I recently spent an evening at Fenway Park getting my downward dog on with the folks of CorePower Yoga.

CorePower Yoga has locations all across the country, including Cambridge, Medford and Newton. Good news, they’re also opening a location in the South End this fall. Rejoice, Boston women, rejoice! CorePower instructors are friendly and knowledgeable, they corrected my form during the class and helped me get more out of the practice. I was sore for the next two days, which is always a sign of a good class.
