Our yoga manager Michelle Jennings believes one of the best ways to improve your yoga practice is to run through sequences at home. But remembering what you learnt in class can be difficult.
This week, Michelle talks about the benefits of developing a yoga self practice and her upcoming workshop.
Benefits of Developing a Self Yoga Practice
When I first started practicing yoga, I would try to remember the sequence from my favourite class so that I could practice at home. But when I stepped on my mat the next day, I would have no idea where to start.
When I learnt how to structure a short and safe yoga class, I felt inspired and so much more confident to roll out my mat at home.
I found my commitment to my yoga practice improved, as did my awareness of my body and my emotions.
Every time I returned to my favourite yoga class, I noticed how much deeper my practice became. I was more connected with the sequence, and felt like I had a new purpose and a greater sense of self.
By developing a self practice, it became more than something I did for fitness. It became my way of life. And isn’t that what you want?
How to Develop a Yoga Self Practice Workshop
I’m running a new workshop on How to Develop Your Own Self Practice.
In this two-hour workshop, you’ll learn how to structure a short and safe yoga sequence at home.
- How to design your own flowing yoga session with a beginning, a middle and an end
- How to prepare your body for a pose you might have been working on in class
- How to listen to your body’s cues and modify your practice accordingly
- How to safely warm your body up, build intensity, and finish with gentle stretching and a peaceful savasana
You’ll also receive a worksheet reminding you how to apply this basic structure to start your home practice.
After this workshop, you’ll be able to step on your yoga mat at any time with confidence.
