Recommitting to Your Yoga Practice
I have a confession: I have been avoiding my yoga practice lately.
After being sidelined for a few weeks by holiday travel, illness, and a pesky hamstring injury, I haven't been able to get myself back on my mat. Now, I know in my head that the minute the asanas start flowing I'll feel stronger and calmer and more centered -- more me. My body, however, is rebelling. It seems to think its much nicer to sit on my couch and channel surf instead.
But then I realized: This is the perfect time to recommit myself to my yoga practice. It's the start of a new year -- a new decade even -- and I know this one will be the best one yet.
As a student, as a teacher, we sometimes need these opportunities of renewal to remind ourselves what is most important to us. We are given the opportunity to commit and recommit to these things in a thoughtful and meaningful way.
For me, my yoga practice will be a key focus to work back into my routine in the new year. What will it be for you?
