Your Foundational Grounding Asana Practice

 

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)

One of my most favorite and most influential teachers has been Judith Lasater. I’ve had the great privilege of studying with her several times, and I'm always amazed and inspired by her depth of knowledge about the body, the yoga practice and her depth of wisdom about life. I learn so much each time I’m in her presence or read her books.

My own practice flourished back in 1999 when I developed my own home practice. And I’m grateful for resources like Yoga Journal, the few books and videos I had on yoga, my memory from classes I took, and my own intuition for the guidance they provided. Today I still practice on my own…it’s one of my favorite things - to just get on my mat, even for 5 minutes, and roll around in my body.

I know not everyone feels the same way, so I wanted to make it a little easier for you to have a home practice.

  • Each week for the next 4 weeks, I will be emailing a brief practice that you can do every day that week.
  • I’ll also send a mid-week check-in with a mini-breathing or meditation practice that you can do when you don’t have time to do the longer asana practice - this way you can practice something every day and feel your best.

Join me on the mat every day, and make a commitment to yourself for the next 21 days to practice something that moves your body and connects you to yourself and the present moment. Even if it’s for only 3 breaths or 5 minutes, you will find yourself more centered and more grounded. You won’t regret it!!

Here’s the first installment – enjoy!! Week 1 Grounding Asana Practice.

Peace, Love and,
Bliss,
Beth
