after a great class and imagine carrying that with you throughout your work day! I bet you'll leave feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to take on anything!
3) Use the buddy system:
Make a yoga date! Bring a friend, parent, sibling, or partner to class with you. Introduce someone to your favorite style, or try a new one together (AcroYoga is practiced in pairs, and is sure to liven up even the deepest of yoga funks)! Hit up your favorite café afterwards to compare notes.
4) Treat yourself to a private lesson:
Many teachers offer private sessions that can take place in your home or office. They're pricier than a drop-in class, but you can really get a lot out of that one-on-one time. Contact a favorite teacher to see if they offer private sessions, or get in touch with one who specializes in a style you've always wanted to try. Private sessions are a great way to focus on a problematic injury, become acclimated to a new style or technique, or simply reap the benefits of the instructor's undivided attention. If you can't afford a private session on your own, consider buddying up or hosting a class at your office. Many teachers offer both individual and small group rates.
5) Dream big:
Pick an advanced pose or one you're not quite able to hit. Read up on it, and ask a teacher for suggestions on how to prep. Practice a little bit every day, and when you finally nail it, celebrate your victory! (Be sure you also know and practice a counterpose so you don't cause injury.)
Fortunately for us, yoga has taken off big time and it's not going away anytime soon. There are plenty of options out there to help you keep your practice fresh. Explore and enjoy!
