All of a sudden it’s bed time. And where did my yoga go? I love love love my days where I remember to add it in whenever I can. They flow, they feel snag-free, and I find myself singing and smiling and feeling pretty damn great, thanks!
But how do we fit the yoga in? Here’s some ways that work for me.
1. Do something first thing in the morning. Asana, pranayama, a few “Om”s–anything will do. A small, simple moment spent connecting with the Greater, Good and Wonderful, connecting with our truth.
2. Meditate while doing the dishes. As Jivamukti founders David Life and Sharon Gannon say, “We can’t make ourselves meditate (connect with the Greater, Good and Wonderful), but we can make ourselves concentrate.” Focus on every detail of that dish–and maybe we’ll feel something much much bigger.
4. Take 2 minutes before bed to say a prayer. What an affirming, reassuring, relieving practice. Whatever works for you: ~ List five things you’re grateful for about your day. ~ Request help from the universe. ~ Give a simple “Much love to [insert whoever’s name you want to put here]”
