3 Week Yoga Retreat Results – Can you lose weight with yoga?

Scroll down for my official results, but the short answer is yes!  You can lose weight with yoga!  I’m so sad that my 3 week yoga retreat has to end.  🙁 I originally wrote this program off as something that would bore me and would provide me with zero results.  I couldn’t have been more wrong!  The program was broken into three weeks, Foundation, Expansion, and Progression.  Each week was led by a different instructor, Vytas, Elise, and Ted and led you through the beginning foundations of yoga, all the way through a more advanced knowledge.  I have been doing yoga for years but it was really nice to be able to go back to the basics and really learn more.

What I loved about the 3 Week Yoga Retreat

Pigeon pose, my absolute favorite hip opener!

More than anything, I got RELAXATION, recovery, and the ability to slow down.  Each morning did our 30 minute yoga program and I felt so calm about starting the day.  Now of course the day did not always remain calm (hello I have small children :)) but it did set me in the right mindset.  There was also a 10 minute bedtime yoga routine that I enjoyed so much!  I tend to have trouble getting to sleep and I have never slept better than when I took 10 minutes before bed to do the 10 minute PM yoga!

What I ate during the 3 Week Yoga Retreat

During Week 1 I followed the Meal Plan to a T.  Week 2 was a little hairy with our schedule so I kept my meals heavy on veggies, proteins, and healthy fats, and still incorporated daily Shakeology.  Week 3 came around and I broke out the crockpot and I went back to some 21 Day Fix old favorites (meatballs and salsa chicken!) and still stayed on track.  I was extremely mindful of what I was eating during this time.  The intensity of the workouts was obviously not as high as some of the other programs I have done.  The shrimp stir-fry from the 3 week yoga retreat meal plan was delicious!

What I struggled with during the 3 Week Yoga Retreat

Boredom with the meal plan after week 1.  I usually like to follow a three week meal plan so it was a little challenging for me that the meal plan was only for seven days.  I was also a little hungry during the first week.  However considering I just came home from vacation, I figured that was to be expected 🙂
