More than ever, I am so appreciative of all the encouragers out there, and Sean Fargo has been one for me.
Today he said that we should meditate every day, unless we are too busy; in that case, we should meditate for 60 minutes!
If you aren’t really a meditator but think it might be something you’d like to try during these challenging days, when we have some extra time to try new things, click here for specific ways you can do so.
In these days of isolation, we can fall prey to “social contagion” – conforming to a strong fear response in our minds and our bodies, when we are fixated on updates and negative reports on the news. We cannot control the outside world, but we can control the reactions to our own central nervous system.
We incorporate so many of his tips into every yoga practice, but if you’d like to dive a little deeper, give these exercises a try.
Today’s practice is a “Hatha Flow”. Many people think of Hatha (technically pronounced hat’ ta), as a slower paced practice that includes longer holds of each pose. You may very well find Hatha practices such as this, but over the years I have found that most people, once they learn the postures and poses, find that incorporating a variety of poses into one practice brings better balance into the body. Hatha truly means balance – sun/moon, yin/yang, east/west…Hatha is simply “traditional yoga” – It honors and maintains the integrity of the ancient practice of yoga, and is found to be accessible to most everyone. Hope you feel balanced and restored from your practice!
