For me it took several years until my morning yoga practice became a routine.
For many years, my excuses were so much stronger than my yogic fire and discipline.
On many days computer work, drinking tea and going out shopping seemed far more exciting and important than my practice, which made my guilty conscience grew. Because I know, how my days go when I am practicing and how my responsiveness and my mood is on the days without my yoga. So I did not give up, because I knew, time will come when my inner fight will be gentler and easier to win.
What I want to tell you: don’t give up! Until you find your own practice, it takes a bit of time, patience, and inner knowing why a yoga morning routine would be good for you.
The reason you want to find your yoga routine
In the end, it’s worth it.
Because it is your practice.
Your very own time.
Your own caring for yourself.
And this is the most valuable thing there is!
Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in mind.
The practice at home does not have to be the same as in your favourite studio.
After all, you want to make it to the mat every day. 90min or longer is no often and for many of us not doable. You know, it does not actually matter how long you do things, but how regular and with what intention you do your things.
The videos I provide here can be inspirations for your own practice at home. There are many short sequences. Most are between 10 and 30 minutes long.
Later, when your practice is a routine, it might become easier to practice every day for longer. But from my experience, you will be more successful if you start with very short, regular practice of 10-20min. And if at some point there are no more excuses, you can let your body decide how long it wants to move.
What makes it easier to start with your Yoga Routine:
Do what feels good, always. Every morning.
Let go of ‘but, I should do this instead’.
Be faster than your excuses.
Just get up, brush your teach, hop on your mat without actually questioning it. Go!
