I've always thought of this time of year as the "winter slump". The holidays have just ended, a time of year that many of us plan for and maybe even look forward to for months. Now we start thinking about what the next good thing is- what do we have to look forward to? What comes to mind may be spring break, summer vacation, or just the return of warm weather. Each of these things seem like an eternity from now. And if we keep searching for the "next good thing" we'll miss all the good that is happening right now in the present moment.
The same principle can be true in our yoga practice. If you allow yourself to suffer and struggle through the balance poses, just waiting for the hip openers or suffer through the chaturungas just waiting for the back bends, you'll miss out on all that is beautiful and good in the balance poses or the chaturungas. Before you know it, the flow will be over and you will have missed out. So whatever your "winter slump" asanas are, hold yourself accountable for staying in the present moment and making the most of each and every pose. This is what I'll be focusing on this week too❤
