Starting a yoga practice may seem like a daunting challenge, yet it can easily be implemented into your daily life if you desire. I have practiced on and off for over a decade and can absolutely attribute less anxiety, deeper peace and a stronger body to my movements and flow. A daily practice is a direct reflection of what is important to you and taking care of your mind, body and spirit can all be achieved through a yoga practice of sun salutations. It turns out, you don't have to commit to a full hour of yoga practice to reap its many benefits.
I have started a daily practice of just 5 sun salutations and with the 10 minutes that it takes to accomplish this task, I have noticed significant changes in the start of my day or the end, depending on when I decide to practice. I love how fluid my movements have become and how clear my thoughts are as I focus solely on my breath with each movement.
Self care is essential and the time you spend on taking care of yourself, tells the world a ton about your value system as everything else vibrates on the same frequency that you project. Are you ready?
