We have unexpectedly entered into a new reality. Most every routine and relationship has taken a new form. It is all at once frustrating, sad, annoying, scary and unnerving.
What if we could use this quarantine time for good. What if we can use it for some self-care, to learn and practice ways that we can take care of our minds and bodies no matter what is happening around us.
A yoga practice is a wonderful instrument to use to learn to read ourselves. Practicing yoga is a gateway to practicing calming the mind, letting go of thoughts that don’t serve us, using our breath as a tool to feel control within the body. Using breath and movement we can practice experiencing joy in our very own skin. While we are stuck at home, maybe we trade a few hours of Netflix for a few moments on a mat (and if you don’t have a mat, the floor works perfectly fine!)
