Although every month is full of yoga....if you follow me on twitter, Facebook or Instagram you may have been inundated with selfie yoga pictures the past 28 days. February was #MyYoga Month.
I ventured into #MyYoga month as an opportunity to share some of my real, day-to-day actual yoga tips for personal practice. In retrospect, my commitment to you, helped me practice yoga everyday of February in some fashion. A win win for all!
Although I did not blog post everyday this month....I "posted" a yoga pose on my body everyday...and really that's all that matters. Show up for yourself! Yoga for one minute, one hour....or for a day of mindful breathing and eating! Have you had a chance to think about what #YourYoga is?
This #MyYoga month I learned....
...It is possible to make time for 5 to 10 minutes of yoga every morning or evening, maybe even in front of the TV
...Just one yoga pose counts
...Full on yoga classes led by a teacher, in person or via podcast...are TOTALLY worth it!!
...Practice with a partner...it adds a whole new perspective full of compassion & trust
...Hands on assists from real physical teachers ROCK! They can transform a practice
...Practice, PRACTICE, practice.....It really WORKS!
...I really enjoyed doing a few minutes of stretching yoga after working out. Yummy Cross Training! Actually...this was probably my biggest take-a-way. Stretching feels SOOO GOOD! As a recent CrossFit yoga student put it.... 'It hurts oh so good'.
...Mediation is much easier after movement
...Beach yoga....it really is a wonderful experience full of Beach Lessons
....Roll out of bed, practice in your pajamas! Why not?!?!
...It's super fun to experiment with self i-phone-agraaphy! Try it out. Smart phone users, search for a Timer photo app. I have been using TimerCam. If you have any other photo recommendations, I would love to hear about them.
...It's OK, Give yourself permission to slow down & relax!
What are some of your favorite #YourYoga moments? How do you keep you yoga practice exciting and fresh? Would love to hear your thoughts!
