YogaOnce a week
Your Shape: Fitness Evolved
Engagement ActivitiesI chose this because it was easily available to me and convenientI did it every SaturdayMany times, my younger sister did this with me.I performed a variety of yoga poses including different warrior poses, the chair pose, the crescent pose, and the reverse warrior pose.
Starting UpI was limited to what I could doI found a fitness game I never had opened before I decided I would use yoga, something Id wanted to do in the past. I Bought a ten dollar yoga mat I found my flexibility wasnt where I thought it was.
SportsmanshipSportsmanship is: showing a good attitude throughout a gamePlaying by the rulesHow I showed sportsmanship: My sister didnt understand the idea of yoga and I explained it to herI helped her through difficult posesMade sure to let her know when she was doing a good jobI get a little frustrated with my sister sometimes, mostly because of her selective hearing, but I promised myself I wouldnt have a short temper through this project just as if I was playing a team sport.
