It has been life changing.
For the past 8 months or so, I have been practising yoga for one 75 minute class per week.
This is my "me" time.
This is my stress release.
This is what makes me feel strong and fit.
Sometimes though, I want to do yoga at home.
Maybe I'm having a really stressful day (like today). I don't necessarily WANT to do yoga (in fact, I often resist it in my head), but if I can just get myself on my mat for 20 minutes, I feel so much better.
So here they are...
My 3 Favourite Free Online Yoga Sites
1. Yoga With Adriene - Words cannot describe how happy I was to discover this resource. Following along with Adriene is like doing yoga with your best friend. I seriously love her. Plus she has EVERY kind of yoga you could possibly imagine, from beginner to weight loss. Go check it out, I swear, you'll love it too.
2. If you have a little more yoga experience, I regularly use local yogi Melanie Caine's YouTube Channel for my home practice and am an occasional visitor to the Nova Yoga studio (which I love!)
3. I used the Web site DoYogaWithMe for prenatal yoga at home. There are a wide variety of online classes and instructors, so you have a lot to choose from.
You are important.
Make time for yourself.
If you feel like you don't have enough time, schedule 20 minutes into your calendar and stick with it, even if you don't feel like it.
Find an accountability partner to remind you how much better you will feel after you practice.
Self-Care makes you a better Mom.
How are you making time for yourself this week?
