Can you believe we’re closing in on the end of 2022? December is a time when we’re managing the holidays on top of tying up loose ends at work or school, traveling…doing all the things. With the added busyness of the season, some days it’s tough to find time for your yoga practice. If you feel overwhelmed and are tempted to throw in the towel on your yoga or fitness until January 2023––don’t!
It's more important than ever during this stressful time of year to carve out time to step onto your yoga mat. Whether you’re away from home or juggling life’s demands, squeeze in a quick class––quality over quantity is what matters. In as little as ten minutes, like in Claire Petretti Marti’s new Quick Yoga Break, you can feel more clear, flexible, and calm. It only takes a few minutes to shift your mood and quiet your mind.
In a perfect world, we have time for a sixty or ninety minute well-rounded practice including asana, pranayama (breath work), and meditation. The world is perfectly imperfect, so if your schedule only permits ten to thirty minutes a few times a week, do that! Consistency is key, so do what you can, when you can.
Each of this week’s classes is designed for the days when you’re short on time but want all the yogic benefits. To clear your mind of distractions, check out Brain Break from Ellen Kaye. If you haven’t tried Denelle Numis’s Element Yoga series, check out the class exploring Space. And if you’re in the mood to go deep, don’t miss Les Leventhal’s Guidelines for a Balanced Life: Ishvara Pranidhana.
This week’s class may be short, but they are mighty! With the proper focus, intensity, and desire you can garner all the benefits of a full-length yoga class in half the time. Even a little bit of yoga will help you manage the next few weeks and be ready to start the new year strong. Enjoy!
