Here are the winners of the #IowaOpenHeartChallenge

Thank you to those who participated in YogaIowa’s first-ever yoga challenge, the February Open Heart Challenge. We hope it was able to bring peace, warmth and a bit of fun to one of the chilliest months of the year. Having to choose only three challenge champions after seeing the hundreds of awesome posts by yogis from across Iowa and the U.S. was no easy task.

A special thank you to our exemplary challenge hosts, Julia Thiesen (@julia_bodyandsoul), Tiffany Thomas (@tiffanyth0mas) and Kelly Harris (@subtle.bliss), as well as our sponsors.

Please join us again in May for another month-long challenge hosted by Fields of Yogis. More details will be found in our Spring issue, out in April.

Without further ado, here are the winners of the 2018 #IowaOpenHeartChallenge.

First Place

Winner of a yoga mat from Manduka

Second Place

Winner of apparel from Red Piglet

“If someone asks you what you like to do for fun, make sure you have something to say.” -Me🧘‍♀️ —————————————— #iowaopenheartchallenge Day 11 #sideanglepose #utthitaparsvakonasana —————————————— #freshsnow and one of the first families out on this perfect morning for a #familyskiday I used to go, go, go and do, do, do so many things that I didn’t enjoy. I didn’t even realize how miserable it was making me. I now have a long list of things I like to do for fun. I am very protective of my time so that I make sure I get plenty of opportunities to not only do those things that bring me joy, but also to create space around them so I can breathe. Be mindful of how you spend your time. Have fun. Enjoy life. And Breathe. Namaste. 🙏🏻 —————————————— Hosts: @julia_bodyandsoul @tiffanyth0mas @subtle.bliss @yogaiowa_magazine Sponsors: @auracacia @athleta @redpigletshop @frontiercoop @mandukayoga #yogamance #yogaiowa #skiing #skiingisfun #justhavefun #outsideplay #getoutside #getupearly #yogamom #yoga #yogaoutside #yogaeveryday #igyogachallenge #yogateacher #yogainspiration
