This week we did a lot of â€œthe same but differentâ€, as my teacher likes to say when we are moving through similar postures with slight tweaks. We continued to move our way up the bodies anatomy, broke down several more postures and learned more about the history of yoga. There is so much information to absorb that it is clearer to me now than ever that you really areÂ a yoga student for life. Â As I learn new information I keep trying to remind myself to enjoy this moment of new learningâ€™s and to be ok with not knowing everything. Â We often reach to place a check mark next to one of our goals that we miss the moments in between
This week we were given 2 new challenges
Challenge 1: thirty minutes of home yoga practice a day + journaling. My teachers assigned us thisÂ new challenge to get us on the matt and experimenting with our own practice. I am excited to do this challenge because I would say my home practice is one of the weaker parts of my yoga practice. I find it difficult to not get distracted in my own home and to just be still. So thisÂ extra motivation is exactly what i need to make myÂ home practice a habit.
To help myself with this challenge I signed up for an account with YogaGlo.Â I canâ€™t believe I didnâ€™t have an account sooner and highly recommend it to anyone, beginner or expert. I follow several of the teachers on Instagram, like Karthryn Budig, and am very excited to start practicing with them at home.
Challenge 2: Record myself in differentÂ postures and sequences. Oh boy, this one is out of my comfort zone. Iâ€™ve never spent much time in front of the camera, but I guess this is the perfect timeâ€”in my own home… alone. Letâ€™s see how this goes and maybe one day I will share some with you. Or who knows I might love it and share lots!
