March Yoga Report

Welcome to my March Yoga Report. Each month I record some things about my journey. I do these posts for a couple of reasons; I want to keep a record of how I am progressing with my yoga, it will hold me accountable, and it gives you a very good look at what I am doing and how I am doing it.

Below you will find out the following things about the past month: poses that I am currently loving, what my home practice looked like, the yoga classes I attended, total time dedicated to fitness, and my healthy habit for the month.

This will be my last yoga report. I have decided that these reports give the impression that yoga is just an exercise when it is so much more that. I don’t do yoga just so that I can feel good about how I look. I do yoga because I like the way it changes my mind. Yoga is something is a mindset on and off the mat. It is hard to portray that in these reports. Perhaps in the future, I will find another way to track my journey. A way that aligns better with the depth of the journey. But for now, I will do my best to provide you, my lovely readers, with valuable information that will hopefully help you on your journey.

-Yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory.

 

March Yoga Report

Focus Poses: These are the poses that I am currently putting into my practice regularly.

Headstand: I getting more comfortable with my headstand every month. I can pike all the way up, but now I am really enjoying trying to pike down with control. I am definitely not there yet, but I am making a lot of progress!

Splits: I felt like I was stuck on this for so long. And then I finally made a breakthrough! I am getting closer!

Self-Practice: This is what I am currently doing as my home practice.

My self-practice is finally getting better! I getting on my mat and practicing on a regular basis. It’s usually only for 15-minutes though. So my next step is to increase the time.

I realized looking at this that I move about an hour a day. Becuase I am doing things that I love, it honestly is easy for me to do. It’s all about finding things that you love!

Healthy Habit:

I wanted to get better at having a self-practice this month and I did! It has taken me awhile to do this, but it is now a habit! I am going to set a more actionable goal for April that I want to do 8-hours of self-practice. I learn so much about myself when I spend time on the mat and I want to make it more of a priority in my life
