Yoga Journal's 21 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 1: Morning Sequence With Kate Holcombe (VIDEO)

"Gently waken and energize the body by linking breath to movement." That's the directive from Kate Holcombe, a well-known San Francisco-based yoga instructor, chosen by Yoga Journal to lead their very first day of the 21-Day Yoga Challenge.

When Yoga Journal put out the call for their 21-Day Yoga Challenge, we knew we wanted to be a part of it. Over the course of three weeks, we're going to learn to incorporate a daily practice of breathing, meditation and vegetarian eating to our busy lives. We're hoping to emerge stronger, more flexible and mindful of the choices we make for our bodies.
