The health benefits of a regular Fierce Grace hot yoga practice are well-documented, but there are many other benefits to a regular FGB yoga practice that go beyond your physical body. Your Brixton studio classes are a great way to feel the physical benefits of yoga, sadhana – or self-care – but when you’re away from the studio traveling or at home, doing a little FG yoga is a great way to stay on schedule when life gets hectic.
Here’s a few ways you can take your practice off the mat, out of the Brixton studio and into your world:
Make a habit of practicing yoga in the morning
Making yoga the first thing you do in your day can open you up to more present throughout your day. It frees up your mind, especially when traveling, to focusing on the experiences at hand and not worrying about fitting in your practice.
Take deep breaths throughout the day…
…especially when stressful situations present themselves. When stretching, deep breaths help you relax and maintain the posture. You can even use the breath to stretch further. This can be taken into your everyday life because stressful situations will always arise – when it feels overwhelming, the best thing you can do is breath in deeply and make sure you’re in your present moment and know that everything is impermanent except the breath.
Incorporating yoga into your daily life can be easy and fun. It’s not just exercise; it’s a mindset and approach to life. Take the opportunity to become more connected to yourself and to others!
