Yoga is a great resource for practicing self care as it allows you to slow down and take time to really understand what’s going on in your heart, mind, body and soul. Yoga for self care will help you build the awareness you need to live a more intentional life motivated by purpose.

Hey beautiful soul, I’m Emmy, certified yoga teacher and photographer here at Celebrate Again, on a mission to help you live out a lifestyle of celebration.

Self Care Yoga Flow

The biggest piece of practicing yoga for self care is taking time to slow down. While the asana (the postures) are important and helpful, the biggest factor in using yoga for self care is taking on the role of the observer. 

1. Notice Your Breathe

Begin your self care yoga flow with breath work. Slowing down your breath and noticing where you begin. You can use your breath to calm your whole body down by lengthening your inhales and extending your exhales a second longer.

I love the breath flow of:

Inhale 4 seconds
Hold for 6 seconds 
Exhale for 8 seconds

2. Notice Your Body

Whether you move through a sun salutation or just into warming up yoga postures like Cat and Cow, notice how your body is feeling.

3. Notice your heart

In your self care yoga flow, move into some postures that open up your heart space. This can be Cobra, or simply standing in Mountain pose with your arms stretched wide, shoulder blades pulling back toward each other and gaze towards the sky.

4. Stay open and trust

As you continue to flow, move into the postures your body is asking for. Try not to judge if you’re doing it “right” or wrong, but lean into what your body needs. 

5. Respect the journey

As you continue to step deeper into your self care yoga journey, you’ll notice more space opens the more you honor and respect the process.
