#SoulFULLfall Day 1: Meet your Inner Guru

soulFULLfall1

Mantra: I am connected to my spirit and open to receiving guidance

Your intuition is your compass and guiding light in this world.  When you are in tune with your intuition you are able to make clear decisions and feel confident about the path your on. Your intuition connects you to your truth and guides you towards your destiny! She always knows what’s best. Enhance your connection to your inner guru today with these tips…

1. Meditate before or after your yoga practice. You can sit in Easy Pose or lay down in Savasana, whatever is most comfortable for you. Breathe deeply. Close your eyes and focus on the spot between your brows. This is your Third Eye chakra and where your intuition’s voice is strongest. As you breath, repeat the mantra above silently or out loud to yourself.

2. Buy a mala with an intuition-enhancing guru stone, like the Lapis Mala of Intuition or the Third Eye Mala, and wear it regularly to inspire you to keep your inner voice loud and clear.

3. Ask for guidance! If you’re looking for your inner guru to help you make a choice or to direct you, ask her for help. State your request out loud and then wait. Her answer could come in the form of a feeling, an idea or words. Pay attention!

7 Great Reasons to Do Yoga in the Comfort of your Home

10635954_814680641906049_4928240045228069362_nAlthough in-studio yoga classes are a must, there are several benefits to practicing every day at home, too. Why go the online yoga route? Check out seven reasons that are sure to get you inspired!

1. You can practice whenever you want, wherever you want. One of the advantages of using a platform like My Virtual Yoga for your practice is the flexibility it offers. Whether before work, during baby’s nap or right after dinner, you’re just a few clicks away from indulging in a bit of well-deserved yoga.

PSST: For those of you who are constantly travelling, know that online yoga can be done in a hotel room before a business meeting or right after a long flight. We love how yoga can be adapted to your busy lifestyle!

2. You’ll find a variety of styles in one spot. You like variety, and making new discoveries—we totally get that. Hatha on Tuesdays, Vinyasa on Wednesdays and Yin on Thursdays: anything is possible! With an online platform, you can easily switch up your practice. It’s simple!

3. It’s an excellent way of complementing your in-studio practice. Most of us have a favourite studio: a place where we gather with others who are passionate about yoga, too. This weekly meeting is necessary so your teacher can correct you, but online yoga allow you to really develop your practice and better integrate what you’ve learned in the studio. 1+1 = 2!

4. There’s something new every week. Are you always on the lookout for what’s new… just like us? Online yoga practice is a great way to test-drive new ways of learning, new techniques and new themes. It means allowing yourself to be in tune with what’s new and have fun, too. Oh, look: there’s something new to try!

5. You can take your favourite teacher with you everywhere you go. So you’ve fallen under the spell of a specific teacher who offers AMAZING CLASSES that seem perfectly adapted to your needs. With online yoga videos, you don’t need to wait for a specific time every week to take your teacher’s class: whether on your iPad at the cottage or on the TV in your basement, your teacher is waiting!

6. It’s a question of comfort. The weather will never make you miss your class, nor will you be able to make excuses for not wanting to leave your OH SO COMFY home. Yup: as far as yoga is concerned, you’ll never be able to use excuses like there being too much traffic, or the metro being late. From now on, it’s all about comfort… and nothing else.

7. There is a yoga class for all levels. Does your beau want to try yoga? No problem: there are videos for every level: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. The yoga  videos are adapted to your body and what you’ve learned so far.

Namaste!
