January — the month of yoga.

  • Firstly, it will be a relatively gentle way of getting back into exercising more regularly after the festive break; unless you’re one of the few who actually managed to stick to their gym routine and resist all those mince pies — I humbly bow down to you, if so. We’re not saying you have to turn into a gym junkie to go through the year in a constructive manner, but a sensible dose of a type of exercise suitable for your fitness level will always be good for you —especially yoga — so let’s get moving with a daily fix!
  • Secondly, every yoga practice necessarily requires a certain degree of breath control and mindfulness, which fits perfectly with one of the overall aims of our project— it’s bound to help you approach the beginning of the year in a more mindful, focused way.
  • Thirdly, yoga is good for you in practically every possible way. But we’ll elaborate on that as we go through the month.
  • Comfy clothes;
  • Around 30 minutes to spare at some point during the day; I recommend ‘ticking off’ your daily yoga practice in the morning, as it will definitely help you get off your bed on the right foot;
  • Some relaxing music in the background (optional, but can make a huge difference to your practice; I recommend Yoga Girl Playlist of the Month on Spotify);
  • An improvised or pre-set yoga sequence to follow. If you’re a seasoned yogi, you might prefer to shape your practice yourself, but if you’re at the beginning of your journey, it will be helpful to listen to someone who knows what they’re doing.
  • An open mind — which comes in handy for more than just yoga.
Starting 2018 wearing colourful yoga pants is bound to make ALL the difference.
