Making time for practice

Whatever it takes to get us to the mat…

The busier life gets, the more important Yoga becomes, and while crib notes may work for politicians, there are better ways to get your Om on.  

Sri Brahmananda Saraswati would say “Practice 10 minutes in the morning, 10 minutes in the evening, how hard is that?” When a reluctant student said “I don’t have 10 minutes in the morning!”  he replied “oh, then you need an hour!”  

1. Make it a priority.  Remember how good you feel after your Yoga.  Plant the seeds for a daily practice.

2. Mark the classes you plan to attend on your calendar.   Go ahead, turn ahead to next month and write those classes in too!

3. Some people like to have a Yoga buddy.  Take turns driving to class, and now they’re counting on you.

4. Technology can help,  Nowadays it’s very-easy to send yourself a class reminder. Set it once and it will remind you every week.  Check out one of the many free email and text message reminder services and Apps available on the web.


5. If you can’t make the time for a full practice, 10-15 minutes of Yoga can really help keep the peace.


If that’s a challenge, Individual sessions really shine here, where we work together to develop a personalized home-practice.
