September is a special time of year.
It begins the start of Autumn, and what better way to greet the beauty of the Fall than with National Yoga Month?
Yoga is an around-the-year practice. But there are ways to welcome the seasonal changes through our asana and breath work.
I recommend turning inward in your practice and setting intentions for what you wish to let go as the year begins it’s close. As the leaves change and float to the ground, let the thoughts and actions you wish to leave behind fall as well.
With love and light,
I like to switch up my yoga practice with new and old sequences I’ve written. Today, I grabbed an early one I wrote for Standing Split pose, or Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana (in sanskrit).
Using blocks to prop myself into a deeper pose, I thought about how grateful I am to have my daily practice and to maintain mindfulness beyond the mat. There have been times when I haven’t been able to focus or bring play to the mat.
In my yoga practice, I am grateful for what I have accomplished from teacher training and beyond.
