Thoughts on yoga, meditation
As one of our yoga teachers keeps reminding us, the 200-hour yoga-teacher training just scratches the surface, and it’s up to us to research more on our own. So I’ve been looking up meditation techniques and scripts online that I’d like to personalize. I ordered the book “Happy Yoga,” which at least two people have recommended recently. I’m also trying to practice at home every day and as often as possible in the studio.
When I practice at home, I told myself I need to be doing at least 20 minutes. Lately it’s been more like 30-40, but some days I wake up late and have to skip it before work. (Keep me accountable!) I just flow in whatever way feels good. I’m working on hand stand against a wall, too. I’m hoping daily practice will help me release my fear and build core strength. Besides confidence in my public speaking those are the areas I most want to work on.
