There’s a little Stella in all of us. Shit goes down. Shit gets real. And then we lose our shit. The carefully cultivated practice of self-care is the first thing to disappear. From there, it’s all downhill. Your energetic spoon is scraping an empty bowl.
So what did Stella do? Well, she took a vacation. And she broke herself off a piece of sizzling young ass…uh, asana. Yep. That’s what she did. She also recognized that she was worthy and deserving of all good things. Just like you are.
Your yoga practice is, amongst other things, a mental / spiritual / physical vacation you need on a regular basis. It is crucial that you keep your bowl bountiful so you can be blissful.
4 Ways To Get Your Yoga Groove Back:
- Don’t Beat Yourself Up When Your Practice Falls Down. You are not alone — falling off the yoga wagon happens to ALL of us. Instead of expending precious prana feeling poorly about it, channel that energy into diving back IN.
- Schedule Yoga. You already calendar meetings, calls, appointments, and more. Commit to at least one class as often as you can do it, and SCHEDULE it. Treat it like a important meeting that you absolutely cannot miss. Because it is. And you can’t.
- Mix It Up. Stoke the creative practice fire with a new class that you’ve been dying to try. You have a smorgasbord of yoga flavors to choose from — Jivamukti, Kundalini, Anusara, Acro, the list goes on.
- Bring Your Homegirl Along. When you buddy up, it’s harder to back out. Plus, you’ll have someone to make kooky faces at and blibbity-blab with after class. Shared experiences are like gems in your pocket.
Make Stella proud. Tap that yoga asana and watch your path unfold with sukha.
