Sleeping in Savasana

My yoga journey

Yoga practice while traveling

I enjoy traveling and visiting friends and family in different places. It used to be that I didn’t practice yoga as often when traveling as I do at home, however it’s now reversed.

My home practice is limited currently and i’m not going to regular classes which I miss. I’m working on improving this next year. When I’m away I prioritise practice, it gives me an opportunity to stretch out after being in a plane, train and sitting for long periods.

Also it gives me the time to thing and be away from whoever I’m staying with. Even if it’s just a 20 minute video it’s good to do.

While away currently I’ve been doing yoga with my nieces so doing Cosmic Kids yoga. It’s nice kid friendly videos that tell a story with yoga poses. My only criticism is that the poses don’t always flow, you go from sitting to standing to lying down to standing. Especially if I’m not really warmed up them my hip can object to so much up and down. I’m not sure I’d do them without my nieces but it’s good to be back in the habit of morning yoga.

Cosmic Kids Yoga

While being away I’ve been doing yoga and I’m lucky enough that I have use of the play room with padded floors to practice in. 

However this does mean that some mornings I’ve been joined by the two small people who live here. I had to explain to the older one that yoga isn’t a content and she can’t award stickers to the person who does it the best. 

One morning I was joined by the kids with the aim of doing Cosmic Yoga. It’s a kids yoga channel on YouTube that uses storytelling and movement to introduce yoga poses. It was quite a nice way of doing it. 

The video that we did was a Frozen themed one that lasted 30 minutes which was a little too long for the attention span of the little ones but most are about 20 minutes long which would have been about right. It wasn’t the most creative sequencing and lots of getting from standing poses to seated poses but it was a good stretch and work out. 

We’ll try another video before I leave and they are hopefully going to keep up doing them on a regular basis once I’ve left.
