For me, practice at home is nothing new. For others it may be a big adjustment. It’s hard to stay in the moment when family life goes on around you, but also brings moments I’ve learnt to treasure.
It’s also difficult to stay motivated, and to push yourself through a full practice. Be kind to yourself, 5 minutes on your mat can be enough. Keep it up and turn it into a regular habit. And if you find motivation a struggle, why not find a friend and send accountability messages? Or make yourself a sticker chart 😆
How are you finding the switch to home practice?
I'm hoping to post my brand new online timetable by the end of this week for classes from April. What classes would you like to see? Any thoughts about length of classes or timings? Would you like classes to stay at the same time as currently if possible?
I'm planning to continue running classes for all the age groups I currently teach, but will have to change some timings to make sure that my girls have at least one grown up to entertain them at all times to maintain sanity :) #warmheartsyoga#standrews#onlineyoga#virtualyoga#stayhome#keepcalmanddoyoga#supportsmallbusiness#yogawithme#yogateacher
Thank you to everyone again for all the supportive comments and the time you have taken to feed back to me over the past week.
Every time I open my inbox to find a message of thanks it brightens my day. It reminds me that the magic of yoga will shine even through a screen. It reassures me that this is worth it, and it is working.
I'm missing my hugs, my high fives, and the excited chatter as three preschoolers try to tell me about their days all at once. But at least I can see the smiles, the joy. I'm loving the waves, being shown toys on screen, and the excited faces I can see.
Also loving seeing the older siblings joining in with the yoga sessions. This is what practicing yoga together as a family is all about. I really am lucky to see these beautiful moments.
I'm trying to find as many silver linings as I can. Who's with me? What were your #silverlinings today?
