Five Bullet Fridays with Chris Kuligowski!

For Five Bullet Fridays this week, we caught up with Chris Kuligowski!

  • What you’ll find on my playlists:My yoga playlists usually start with one good yoga flow song that I have heard and I start looking at similar artists and build my list from there. I have resorted to this technique because 99% of the time I am listening, singing, and all around rocking out to country music which doesn't translate well into yoga jams. My favorite type of country music is called Red Dirt and if you want to know more about it - ask!

  • What I’m reading:The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. It's about an American rowing team and their journey to compete in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany. I am a sucker for true life, feel good, overcome the odds stories and this is a perfect example of just that.

  • What activity I’m participating in outside of yoga & what I’m learning: I have recently taken on the personal challenge of learning how to swim. A few short months ago I literally could not put my face in the water or do more then a few doggy paddles. While I am still far from being comfortable in the water I have come a loooooong way and am even completing in the SB Sprint Tri this weekend! From this endeavor, I have learned that with support, encouragement, and accountability from friends, nothing is impossible!

  • What I’m focusing on in my daily yoga practice & what I’m learning: I am focusing on doing with feels right and not necessarily what looks right. I am all about modifications and adjusting when needed. My hips are extra tight lately so I go down to one knee whenever crescent lunge or any variation of it is called. I have learned that by listening to my body my practice is much more effective both in and out of the studio!

  • Purchase I’m enjoying:I recently became a PRO member at Rent the Runway and I love it!! RTR has hundreds of beautiful dresses of all types that you rent for the weekend. I have 6 weddings to attend this year so I have made good use of this service and rent from them all the time! You'll usually see me in leggings, a flannel shirt, and a bun on the top of my head but when I dress up I like to get as fancy as possible! :)
