Do you rush to fit in your yoga practice because it’s become an afterthought? Do you find that your practice is getting a little stale? Yoga may be amazing, but sometimes, you must reignite your love for it and fan the flame of interest. This way, you look forward to getting back onto the mat.
Bribery or Motivation?
It’s true that a little encouragement by way of a small treat can go a long way. If you find yourself putting off your practice, tempt yourself by investing in some new yoga pants. That may not sound like much but a snazzy new outfit will make you want to bend and stretch like the best of them. If you haven’t purchased some specially made yoga clothes just yet, do it. When you find yoga pants and tops that suit your needs, you’ll feel amazing. Plus, they move with your body, there are no wrinkles, crinkles, or uncomfortable creases. The moment you slide them on, you’ll be ready for your next yoga session both mentally and physically.
Yoga Blocks, Bolsters, Belts, and Straps
If you haven’t tried any of these accessories, it’s worth doing so. They help you to gain perfect alignment and you’ll experience less injuries as a result. Strains or minor injuries do occur when you are a little over-zealous to stretch into the pose but, your body will dictate how far you can extend. When you use straps and blocks, you still reach the maximum position but do so, in perfect alignment, without putting your body at risk.
Try Out a New Style
You may love your chosen style but, if you find yourself losing interest even a little, give yourself a boost by attending a class in a different style and you’ll learn new postures and understanding as to the many benefits of yoga. It’s amazing how you start utilizing different muscles when you change it up a little. Pus, you’ll meet a whole new set of enthusiasts. When you practice a variety of sequences or flows, you start to think about yoga in a whole new way.
Drag Your Partner Onto the Mat
Yoga may be traditionally practiced solo but it works great to share it with your partner. Their interest and enthusiasm will very quickly fuel your desire to teach them or to share this journey with them and you’ll soon be buzzing about your practice once more. Plus, a couple that shares such an experience and who laugh together achieves a whole new level of intimacy. Why not give it a try?
