As a part of my daily habits resolution, I am practising yoga every day. My goal (which I have not reached yet but am steadily climbing towards) is a practice of 20 minutes (ish) of yoga every morning and evening. Sometimes, if I feel a bit jittery or unstable, I do a short yoga sequence – or even just one or two poses – and a quick meditation.
Last week, I have been doing Salutation to the Sun every morning and most nights – sometimes I have included Warrior asanas. This week, I plan to do two every morning, and one each night. I find that the earlier in the day I do them, the more ‘together’ I feel during the day. Practising the yoga sequence before bed helps me sleep more deeply and peacefully.
If you click the image below, there’s a fantastic (free) resource from Vinyasa Yoga with Michael Dynie for the Salutation to the Sun routine, including one with the Warrior Pose where I place it my routine – great minds think alike, right? I also like this one because it’s a one-page PDF, and has explanations of difficult poses and benefits of a yoga practice.
