A Soothing Practice for Every Day!

Without discipline there is no art.

LIVING YOUR YOGA: The art of yoga comes from the consistency of discipline. Today resolve to practice for the next twenty-one days without missing a single one. Note it on your calendar.
(from A Year of Living Your Yoga by Judith Hanson Lasater)

 

Welcome to our final installment of the Practice With Me series. I really hope these videos have helped you establish your own home practice and supported you in committing to yourself, your well-being and your practice.

Today's asana practice focuses on moving gently with the rhythm of your breath to help soothe your nervous system. When we are constantly stressed out, our bodies get stuck in the fight or flight mode, which is very depleting. This practice includes gentle and repetitive movements that are guided by the rhythm of the breath. We also focus a little more on the exhale, the breath of letting go, and include some simple restorative poses. All of these things are useful in moving out of the fight or flight mode and back into the rest and digest mode. In essence, we are working toward activating the parasympathetic aspect of our nervous system. We need to turn off sometimes!!

Here’s week 4 – enjoy!! Practice With Me Week 4:A Soothing and Nourishing Practice for every day!

And let me know how your practice is going, what feels good, what feels challenging, and of course how I can support you in developing and maintaining your own practice. You can email me or reach out to me on Facebook.
