Today I wanted to chat about one aspect of my life that I haven’t touched on in this blog before. I first began experimenting with yoga in 2014 after learning of the benefits it has on your mind, body, and soul. This entire idea behind what yoga stood for was in line with my interests already, so I naturally wanted to make it a part of my lifestyle. It wasn’t until 2015 that it became a regular habit of mine.
I began introducing this practice once a day into my routine. I would research beginner poses and routines that would be easy on my not-so-limber body. Yoga With Adriene was my go-to resource because she offered everything from beginner, to expert, and all the fun stuff in between. I would usually carve out thirty to forty-five minutes of my morning before breakfast to practice. I enjoyed having a virtual instructor to follow along with at this point. It allowed me to stay on track, learn new poses, and perfect breathing techniques.
After several months of this, I began switching my practice to evenings before bed. I enjoyed the relaxation and winding down from the day. I like to put on a calming playlist in the background, and really focus on my breathing. Its amazing how much better you can instantly feel when doing this. It automatically calms you down, clears your mind of petty things, and puts into perspective the things you really care about.
A HUGE tip I have for someone beginning the practice of yoga would be to get the most out of every minute. I spend this time meditating and going over positive affirmations in my mind. If you start your day or end your night this way, you will slowly start seeing the positive changes in your life. I’d love to chat more about the Law of Attraction and my spirituality later, but yoga has been a huge factor in this.
I still consider myself to be a beginner, but I’m definitely improving each time. I’d love to hear from you guys about your yoga journey if you have one! Leave me your thoughts in the comments below. I hope your day is fabulous; love and light! :)
