It’s healthy for your mind, body, and soul. And while yoga is also designed to be a way to achieve relaxation for those who practice it, inevitably, your yoga routine could tend to feel more like a chore than fun at times.
That’s why it’s important to keep your yoga routine fresh and exciting
While there are several ways you can do this, here’s a look at six that we’ve come up with for you:
Perhaps the best way to prevent falling in a “yoga rut” is by going to class to practice the exercise. In class, not only will you be able to get out of your home – and all the distractions that come with it – but you’ll be able to mingle with friends and fellow yoga enthusiasts and receive instruction from a yoga teacher. 🏃♀️
Just getting out of the house to practice your yoga can be a breath of fresh air, but several other benefits come with doing this as well.
Along the lines of our first point, yoga doesn’t always have to be practiced in the studio.
But at the same time, it doesn’t always have to be practiced at the same location. So switch up your location.
Do it in your living room one day, maybe at the park the next day, the beach on another day. The beautiful thing about yoga is that you can do it pretty much anywhere.
With this freedom why stick to just one place?
Don’t just do the same routine over and over again. Just like what you should do with your location – switch up your music and your routine.
Doing the same thing every day can be robotic you don’t want to fall into that rut
If you’re doing yoga three days, or even five days per week, pick a different routine and music regime based on the days of the week or month that you practice.
There are so many yoga styles you can do, from rigorous ashtanga to gentle yin to sweat-inducing hot yoga to energy-boosting kundalini. Learning new styles is exciting, fun, and will deepen your practice.
Another way to get the most of any yoga class session is to make a conscious effort to make new friends. Everything is more fun with friends and yoga class is a great way to meet people with similar interests. Consider carpooling to class with your friends and setting aside time to hang out outside of yoga class as well.
Finally, an additional way you can keep your yoga routine fresh and exciting is by striving to be perfect with it. Work on perfecting the positions so you can ensure that you’re benefiting the most from it. This added challenge of being perfect with your yoga positions is an exciting endeavor.
Yoga is supposed to be fun, but sometimes you have to work to keep things enjoyable 🤩
By following the aforementioned tips, you can be well on your way to breaking out of your yoga rut.
