A yoga inspired event for self-starters, entrepreneurs and business owners.
Once upon a time I hid behind my ‘too busy’ life to avoid doing things that:
- needed my attention, but had ‘no time’ to stop and address
- I didn’t want to do, even though deep down I knew they would make me happier, healthier and more successful in the long run.
- took me out of my comfort zone (or simply scared me silly)
So, I just kept going, foot to the floor, head down, fingers in my ears, barely coming up for air. 😝 What happened? Crash, bang, wollop, oops, oh dear… life/work fell apart. For a while.
3 REASONS NOT TO SKIP SHAVASANA
Let me take your mind to the end of any yoga class. What happens? If you answered ‘blanky time’, ‘Zzzzz’ or ‘I leave – I really haven’t got time for this’ you might just catch me let out a soft sigh of understanding before I wade right in with a yoga reality slap. (Tough love sorry, it’s how this yogi rolls 😝).
What if I told you that this beautiful bookend to your practice called Shavasana/Savasana (or corpse pose), is the pose for taking charge of your life, health and happiness.
Intrigued? Read the blog – it includes a big announcement.😝.
Q: I’m in training for a spring marathon. How can yoga help me taper?
A: Taper, peak, fade – whatever you call it, it’s that period when you’re supposed to be training less than you have before. You’ve logged the super long miles or sessions and the plan says it’s time to pull back, let the body catch up, recover. Sounds great, you can do that right?
Not so straight-forward. Why? Because it’s way, way too easy to fall into the human trap of thinking more is more. (You know you think that way – you’re a competitor. It goes with the territory.)
So you stop trusting the plan and maybe add on a few hours. Or you pull back and your mind starts flipping you out, the confidence you’ve worked hard to accumulate takes a dive and before you know it, your anxiety is through the roof and you don’t even have your old faithful sport to distract you.
The solution: Drop a few key yoga tools into your taper plan.
