Yoga: Quick, Dirty And A Funny Tip

Quick post, quick practice...

I often ask myself, if I'm only going to do Suyra Namaskaras and Finishing, why go to the shala? I could easily get out of bed, walk five steps to the living room and roll out my mat. But there is a ton more to it than just rolling out my mat these days. I've turned the shala into a sacred space and to me practicing has become synonymous with the journey to the shala, practicing in that space and being a part of the community. It's well worth it, though it doesn't always make sense at 5AM!

My "have fun and mess with your practice" yoga tip of the day: try smiling really big in Sirsasana A!

Alright, I'm off to Providence.
