We are in the depths of winter right now. What does this mean for our yoga practice? I like to think of it as a time to retreat into ourselves and have a tidy up. I believe it does us all good to get out of our comfort zone and this is easier to do if you have a safe place to come back to. In winter we are coming back in. We take the time to digest, rest and rejuvenate. We are tidying up our comfy zone. Put the fairy lights up, relax, move at a slower pace.
Our asana practice is slower, more meditative. We hold poses for a little longer, taking the time to look inwards and explore. Now is the time to look back over the last year.
What have you learned? What are your resources? Your strengths and weaknesses. Where are you going? Where do you want to go? What do you want? What is stopping you from getting to where you want or need to be?
