focusing on one pose for your home practice

Welcome to Day 10 of our 21 Day Yoga Challenge! One of the stumbling blocks to developing a consistent yoga home practice is trying to figure out what to do, how to practice, when you are not guided by a teacher. Instead of doing a gaggle of poses, try exploring just one pose, coming in and out of it, trying different variations or a different focus. You can use a yoga asana (pose) book to really concentrate on alignment. Or be more playful and spontaneous by just feeling how subtle changes to the positioning of the body changes the energy and breath in the body.

In today’s video I demonstrate playing with triangle pose, trikonasana. Notice the smile in the video – now that’s yoga. Discover something new, but most importantly have fun.

Namaste,

Suzanne

  1. Suzanne, my dog does the same thing when I do my yoga at home but I usually get upset and stop. Thank you so much for showing me how you just keep going and even laugh about it. I learn so much from you.

  2. Hi, Natalie! Your comment made my day. 🙂 I believe that our animals feel the wonderful energy that we exude when we practice yoga – and they want to be a part of it. Look how happy Olivia is when I’m practicing. I feel blessed by that. Namaste, Suzanne
