I loved this challenge. I’d had an unintentional break from my yoga because things just got hectic really quickly, so I loved being able to get back to my practice and really focus on getting back to thinking about my inner happiness.

The best bit about this challenge was how supportive the hosts were. They commented such lovely things which really encouraged me to try harder and rekindled my love for yoga.

I was so thrilled when I was announced as one of the winners for this challenge. There were so many people who really worked hard on this challenge and it was lovely to see such a wide variety of people taking part – from beginners (like me) to seasoned pros.
