Self Care Yoga | Tips

Mat Optional But It Helps

Having a yoga mat isn’t necessary, though it helps with grip and padding. A soft rug or large towel will do.

If you’re looking for a great yoga mat, we love cork yoga mats because they are environmentally friendly and chemical free for you too!

Meditation For Self Care

As we are flowing through this self-care yoga practice I’ll read to you this quote by Victoria Erickson from her book, Edge of Wonder:

“Promise to stay wild with me.
We’ll seek and return and stay
and find beauty in the extraordinary
in all the spaces we can claim.
How to breathe magic
into the mundane.”

You can continue to practice this meditation for inner peace on your own using this self-care mantra

Inhale: Linger in Beauty
Exhale: Dwell in the magic (mystery/God) of the mundane
