Hmm, Morning Yoga - I could get used to this!

I've been meaning to layer yoga into my life for years. I did it haphazardly during 2015 and early 2016 when I lived in Ubud (Bali, Indonesia) where yoga is a mainstay for short and long term ex-pats.

But I've spent all my life running.

Running to keep up. Running to run away. Running to cope.

But it's exhuasting to be honest, trying to live this way.

In hindsight, I realised I couldn't handle slowing down enough to do yoga because God knows what I'd find if I was still that long, if I was connected to my body that long, if I was consciously breathing that long.

But the more I resolve past, painful experiences, the more in touch I get with my body, my emotions and my own patterns of behaviour the easier it gets to slowly, slowly layer yoga into my life.

For many months now I've been doing at least 3-5 minutes of yoga most mornings just to help my tired body to wake up. The more I do this the more I want to do this. And the more I do this the more yoga moves I want to learn.

Now I've found a cheap yoga class on the Gold Coast I'm planning to attend every 2-3 weeks for the rest of this year. And I've started looking up where else I could attend yoga classes slightly closer to home but still at a really cheap rate.

And while I love the idea of having company during a class to meet other like minded people and learn from a gentle, kind, knowledgeable yoga teacher, I'm also aware of the incredible access to classes I have at home with this internet connection.

Enter stage left Yoginimelbourne. This woman has oooodles of guided yoga classes and in an attempt to broaden the number of yoga moves in my repertoire (and not have to think about which moves to do in which order) this morning I did one of her short yoga classes before breakfast.

It was, as expected, delightful. If you want to do a class of your own or see the one that I did you can check out Yoginimelbourne's awesome 10 minute guided yoga flow here.

Thank you to my darling babe (@new.things) for taking these photos of me this morning.

Great habit to get into, if it works for you.
Like you I was mostly in the run. Can’t sit still and do nothing. Never managed to get into it.
Well done you for your dedication. Keep going!

Oh I might try her flows! I need to get back into a yoga routine but been reluctant to go back to the studio as it adds up. I miss the community there and the discipline of showing up. But I can do my own classes as I trained as a teacher once and have been practicing all my life.

Yoga is so good to use alongside running and will see you through the rest of your life!!

I'd love to go to more classes. I'd also love to do teacher training just so that I have a really solid level of knowledge as you've done. But, like you, it's nice to have the option to do it at home.

And yes I feel like yoga compliments running really well 🙌
