Stuck in your practice?
If you are a regular yogi you’ve probably had those times where you find yourself practicing the same asanas (yoga poses) with a lack of enthusiasm; you are frustrated with your Uttanasana and feel that your fingers are never going to reach the floor.
We’ve all been there.
You are probably in a yoga rut!
Here are five tips to get you back on the mat and in love with your practice.
1. Cross train your practice.
Try out some infusion classes. Practicing the same exercise everyday can lead to cranky joints and tight muscles. So change it up! Does your studio offer a fun class you’ve never tired? Go for it! You’ll end up noticing new changes in your body and might find a new favorite class!
Take advantage of community classes hosted at parks, beaches or on the water. There’s nothing like it! Check out meetup.com; you’ll be able to find your perfect outdoor practice!
3. Take a workshop.
Do you have a fear of going upside down? Or maybe need some help on meditating? There’s a plethora of workshops out there.
4. Share with friends and family.
There’s nothing like sharing your accomplishments and getting a thumbs up! You’ve worked hard to get into your crow pose!
5. Take a break.
If you’ve tried everything and just can’t shake the funk, take a few days off. It’s okay to rest. Just try not to stay off your mat more than a week. It’s going to miss you!
Staying fresh and excited about yoga ultimately boils down to being willing to step outside the box. Just remember not to compare your practice to anyone else. Yoga is a journey and should always be enjoyed!
