On Friday I released a slightly more active vinyasa practice video to my Patreon. Some days we want to build heat in the body and move, whereas other days are all about rest and stillness.
I used to purely practice vinyasa yoga when I first started, but as I started to explore other practices such as chair yoga and restorative yoga, my relationship with my practice changed.
My practice now varies with the seasons, the time of day, how I’m feeling, and what I need. Some days will be an hour vinyasa practice on the mat, other days will be bed yoga, some days won’t involve movement – focusing instead on pranayama (breathing exercises) or meditation.
My invitation to you today is to try something different. If you’re used to power yoga, maybe give a restorative or yin class a go. If you’re used to restorative, maybe chair yoga would be a nice alternative.
Essentially, listen to your body, ask yourself what you need today.
And because I need to get better at promotion, I’ll include here a note that my Patreon page has vinyasa classes, chair classes, bed classes, restorative classes, and meditations/visualisations – so you can choose something different every time you practice!
