During this time when we are practicing physical distancing, taking care of our mental and physical health have never been more important. This is why, for the month of April, I'll be offering live instagram feel good yoga classes every Wednesday at 7am. It may feel more difficult than ever to commit to your practice but I promise, getting yourself up for a morning class will lift your spirits and energize your mind and body to keep you going for the rest of your day.
This feel good series will be on a donate what you can basis, and proceeds will go directly to the Deep River hospital. Those who have a class pass with me, I'll be honouring them by making a donation for you plus my own contribution to give back to the front line medical staff who have been working endlessly during this time.
To help prepare your space for your at-home practice with me, here are some tips!
Ensure to dedicate a yoga space for yourself so you feel motivated to get on your mat. It can be by your fireplace, windows, or in a room. Wherever that dedicated space may be, ensure that you include items to create an atmosphere that you would like to set for your practice. It can be as simple as adding things you already own like a candle, blanket, plants, or pillows. Anything that may trigger a sense of belonging and relaxation can really go a long way. If you are looking for new items to add to your space, Eco Style Bear Cave has some beautiful items like mirrors to make your space appear larger, rugs to divide your space up, vases to add some life into a space, the possibilities are endless!
The idea is to create a space so you look forward to stepping on the mat for your at home practice. It may feel like you need a lot of discipline at this time, but if you create a space and atmosphere where it brings you joy, it will really make a difference in your self-practice. It also feels motivating and comforting to know you are practicing alongside with other yogis in real time! I hope you can join us on this feel good journey, where you are prioritizing your mental and physical health while supporting your local hospital.
