Yoga off the mat


If you've attended my classes you may have heard me say "who you on the mat, is a reflection of who you are off the mat" ~ well that's because Yoga is a way of living. It's a practice for us to develop on and off the mat. None of us our perfect and therefore it's always a practice. We're always learning and trying to be better. It keeps us aware and accountable to our actions.

There are 5 Yamas in the Yoga sutras:

  1. AHIMSA (NON-VIOLENCE)

  2. SATYA (TRUTHFULNESS)

  3. ASTEYA (NON-STEALING)

  4. BRAHMACHARYA (SENSE MODERATION)

  5. APARIGRAHA (NON-GREED)

Each one of the Yama's is a daily practice for us as individuals and there are various ways in which we can adhere to them. Here are some ideas that can help you with your practice off the mat:

  • Expressing gratitude and embodying that feeling of gratitude fully.

  • Spending time in nature.

  • Reading for self growth and personal development.

  • Breathwork ~ 5 mins of conscious breathing.

  • Do something that brings you joy nurturing your inner child.

  • Doing something kind for someone else.

  • Being present in every moment (putting the phone away).

Namaste x
