Update: Changed pic to bring the virtual celebratory mug back, as I felt we hadn’t celebrated enough the fact that we just did all 30 days of YWA January BREATH!
CONGRATULATIONS! Well done for getting to the mat regularly!!
But what now?
As many of you, I have been pondering on how to continue on the daily Yoga journey that - in my case - I started with the daily challenges of YWA BREATH. So here some thoughts on a way forward and hoping others chip in to see if there is a desire to keep going together on the YWA journey.
I really loved practicing Yoga with a group of virtual yoga buddies, popping into the forum afterwards to hear, learn and share how everyone is moving through various poses ever so slightly differently, making it even more intriguing to continue and try out different nuances. So thank you to everyone who has been part of this journey! And so well done to everyone!
And in my own home, hubby and I have also grown accustomed to getting up early, and having that half hour practice time together, guided by Adriene’s gentle way of leading us through known and unknown explorations of body and mind.
Hubby doesn’t tend to often go onto the forum, so I actually have the delight of having two different workout experiences, one lively digitally connected group experience and one more personal, trusting you-are-here-and-I-am-here kind of experience. On Day 30’s BEGIN hubby and I happily ran through our own poses, then suddenly finding ourselves facing each other in a child’s pose with rotation, laughing how both of us red-faced definitely did not have the saintly, relaxed smile of Adriene on our faces....
But I also want to explore some other ancient and new practices. Im just a too fledgling newbie S&Flexer to be content with just one ancient practice, and maybe some of our newfound VYBs feel the same.
So I wonder if others have similar thoughts and I wonder if more VYBs would do like to see if the following might be a good solution:
- many of us, including hubby and myself, have come to the conclusion that we might want to commit using the YWA monthly calendar in some form or manner. This might look like a daily practice or popping in on some days. So we collectively can support this through this forum and continue to share our experiences and progress. I’ll post a weekly update, this one being the first.
- But I certainly do not want to rule out exploring other gentle practices, such as Tai Chi, Pilates, and similar. So here and there I’ll probably be dropping some 3-5 day, short and easy challenges for exploring a short relaxing additional practice, that interested individuals can do as an additional option, or an alternative. For hubby and me, that will be an evening practice.
So let me know if there are enough interested individuals to keep the momentum going, and I’ll start with this (monthly?) calendar post.

Let’s continue on this wonderful journey.
