# 1 THE YOGA LOCAL Podcast | Sadhana – What You Need is a Plan.

The Yoga Local Podcast | What You Need Is A Plan.

Routine, habits and working in a systematic way to move you towards your goals (spiritual, physical or otherwise) is the topic of this week’s podcast.

And it kind of relates to what’s playing out for me in my yoga business right now. If you go through my archives you’ll notice I was podcasting well before I opened the physical studio space 18 months ago and it got sidelined as other areas of the business naturally took priority.

Honestly, other areas of my life continue to take priority and quite frankly unless I find the space, create the habits and make systematic steps, it’s unlikely that picture will change any time soon.

So, I decided to just start. To just greet the moment. And do something towards making it happen. And hey presto here’s the outcome of that choice.

You feelin’ that good vibration? A QUICK YOGI WAY TO WITHIN

Hey Yogi-in-Training. Hope your week was sweet. 😉

Today’s yoga quickie is inspired by the music streaming services of Spotify.

I just fired up my account and got to scrolling through some beautifully curated sets of tunes designed by its experts to shift me into any desired state of mind or mood. Let me see, do I need help getting my sorry ass out of bed, or be inspired to go kick some creative butt?  As I have already won the war to wake, I’ll go for the latter option. Thankyou Spotify.

But It got me asking, who really needs a microscope or a science degree to see that sound can be a very cool way of communicating with the central nervous system?

Which is what I want you to remember as we dive into this week’s yoga quickie which is all about using sound or vibration to access heightened states of awareness, clarity and consciousness.

The ONE healthy yogi habit every ‘gotta get it done’ finisher needs

Are you set on what’s at the end of your rainbow? Why it’s good to decide, not to decide.

Hello! I’m getting ‘back to it’ after a short summer break. You ‘at it’ too?

Getting stuff done is good, yes? You get to say I achieved something, tick the box, get the medal, praise, pat on the back or whatever it is.

“Move on, neeeeeeexxt.” Is that a success mantra you were fed on? Sat writing this, I think it was mine. Did it work for me…? Mostly I guess, but I’ve been turning the idea over for a few days, and the result of these musings is what I want to share with you.

So take a minute from your next to do, please… and stay with me for the one healthy yogi habit every finisher needs. 😉

Why is my physio saying yoga is a good idea?

Hands up if you’ve ever had physio? Hands up if the reason you called your physio was down to any one of these?

  1. Pain
  2. Limitation
  3. Frustration

Probably all three right?

Now ask yourself, was something way, WAY off balance before you actually made that call. Had your body stopped talking in whispers and started shouting – “You got to help me out here. Stop doing the thing that you are doing and let’s try and fix this.”

Oh yes – I’ve been there and I know I am not alone.

According to the NHS, the things we mostly seek physio out for include one or more of the following:
