NaBloPoMo: Yoga

Nov 02

Earlier today I did my 676th consecutive yoga practice. Way back at the end of 2015, I decided to get back into having a home practice as I had in the late 90s, early 2000s. At first, when I didn’t want to get on the mat, I’d say to myself, “today’s not the day I’m going to break my streak.” It worked, I guess. Now it’s pretty rare for me to drag myself to the mat; it’s usually a part of my daily routine I anticipate.

Not every practice is a long one. On days when I’m really crunched, I may do a 20 minute practice and remind myself that it is the habit of getting on the mat that matters to me. If I can get on the mat, no matter the amount of time, I will feel better.

I can’t imagine anyone interested in yoga hasn’t heard of Yoga with Adriene or the Find What Feels Good kula…but just in case you haven’t, go on and take a look. Adriene does an excellent job guiding with her voice so you don’t feel glued to the videos, and her explanations of poses are super.

Let me know what long-time practices you have going on!

  1. That’s an impressive number of consecutive days!

  2. I begin each day with a series of sun salutations. Sometimes they are a rather short series, but daily nonetheless. It’s a great way to welcome the day. XO

  3. That’s so inspiring ! Thanks for sharing what you said to get yourself going on the streak.

    Love love love YWA. Caught her roadshow when she was in town! Haven’t counted my consecutive days of practice but it has been my go-to exercise. I also try to get to one public class a week (hot yoga!).
