Our aim this month is to help you decompress from holiday stress! Here at Willow Tree, we deeply understand what a respite your yoga mat can be and we’d like to help you get to yours as often as possible. Each week, Willow Tree WC yoga instructor, Sara Bowman, will be sharing tips, advice, and inspiration for cultivating a home yoga practice so that you can find what you need, anytime you need it!
Feeling unsure about starting a yoga practice at home with no guidance? You might not realize it but your biggest stumbling block is probably that you’rethinking about doing yoga. Get out of your head and into your body and breath. If you’re thinking you don’t know what to do…. you’re still thinking. ‘“But I don’t know all the poses” or complicated sequences” is something I commonly hear. The good news is, it doesn’t matter. Just get on the mat. If you’re really feeling unsure, promise yourself 5 minutes. Lay on your back and start to pay attention to your breath. And feel your body. That’s where the best information comes from about ‘doing some yoga’, because that’s what yoga is. Be present, pay attention to your breath, and then maybe start to move it in ways that feel good.
