Welcome to my February 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.
February Yoga Report
Focus Poses: These are the poses that I am currently putting into my practice regularly.
In previous months, this was my “Goal Poses” section. I decided to change this to “Focus Poses” because I no longer like the idea of having goal poses. In my teacher training and in the books that I have been reading I have been gently reminded that there is no goal in yoga. It’s not about achieving poses. I do think that I will always gravitate to certain poses for a period of time. So that is what I will share, the poses that I feel like keep coming to me over the month.
Handstand: After having some instruction on handstands at my yoga teacher training I really wanted to give it a go. At the training, I wasn’t able to commit to the pose and kick up into it. However, I tried it on my own a couple of weeks later and surprised myself that I could do it. It felt really empowering to do and I know that I will enjoy working on this pose in the future.
Forward Folds: I have a lot of stuff on my plate right now and find that I turn to forward folds a lot in my practice. They are great for destressing, help to activate your parasympathetic nervous system and are great grounding poses.
Self-Practice: This is what I am currently doing as my home practice.
I do a lot of yoga, but I am still not great at getting on the mat and practicing on my own. This is something I really want to get better at.

I am so happy that I got a chance to do Acro Yoga again. I miss it so much and would really love if I had classes near me! Like I mentioned above, I really hope to have a better and more consistent self-practice going forward.
Since I really want to work on having a more consistent self-practice, I am going to make it my healthy habit for March. I have set the goal for myself to do cardio the last couple of months and have completely failed at it. I think I need to take a break from this goal for a month and try something else. I’ll go back to it in April.
There you have it! My February yoga report. Comment below and tell me about your February!
