When I work with clients to design a personal practice, I start with this statement: Be honest and tell me what you will do, not what you think I want to hear. Here’s the beauty of it: no matter if it’s 10 minutes twice a week or an hour a day, you are still getting the benefit. And when we find what works for you, you will want to do it; you won’t brush it off.
So, here are five reasons to develop a personal practice:
1. You can do it in your jammies.
No need to go anywhere, comb your hair or brush your teeth.
2. You don’t have to stress about getting there on time.
You don’t have to worry about traffic, meetings that run late or shifting appointments. You do it on your own time.
3. No guilt.
If you miss a day, no sweat. You haven’t lost any punches on your punch card.
4. You can still go to your favorite yoga class.
The group energy of a class is a really nice buzz so keep doing what makes you happy. By practicing by yourself, however, you will give yourself a chance for the teachings of yoga to really sink in sans distraction.
5. It’s all about YOU.
This is probably the best part. You learn about how your body and mind work and, in the process, lift yourself into a better space.
