My Week of Yoga: Less Class Time

This was one of the quietest weeks of yoga I have had in over a year. I did log some time at the gym which was a nice change of pace but I struggle to transition from the gym to my home practice. As I progress through yoga teacher training I am learning and practicing so much more than just the asana and am thoroughly enjoying the mental benefits!

Monday:

The Midwest has just been getting hammered with winter weather lately. We had some more troubling weather come through so instead of a yoga class I had to head straight home after work. I did 15 minutes of core work followed by 40 minutes of leading Mr. Mindful and myself through  a vinyasa flow.

Tuesday:

Went to the gym after work. Spent some time cycling and did about 15 minutes of sun salutation A and B afterwards.

Wednesday:

I taught 40 minutes to some of my co-workers and flowed along with them.

Thursday:

Elliptical, core, and 15 minutes of sun salutations again

Friday:

rest

Saturday:

8 hours of yoga teacher training felt a bit like coming home. Got to practice the asana limb of yoga for about an hour and a half, working through adjustments and cuing.

Sunday:

65 minutes self-practice. Lots of lunges, hamstring stretches, heart openers, hip work, and a touch of core.




Yoga Teacher Training Practice: 1 hour 30 minutes

Self-Practice: 2 hours 50 minutes

Total: 4 hours 20 minutes
