Welcome to my yoga room

I have one more post that wants to be written about my yoga practice – I can’t promise that it will be the last, but I am certainly on the tail end of it :).

The other day, I wrote a wrap-up article for The Yoga Lunchbox about my 40 days of yoga experience. Before publishing it, Kara-Leah asked me if I had any photos of myself doing yoga in my space that she could add to the article.

Er, no.

The idea was a little confronting to be honest, because yoga is such a private thing for me (yeah I know I blog about it, but that’s my thoughts, not pictures). Β Still, I thought I’d have a go – the worse thing that could happen was that all the pictures were rubbish.

As it happened, the photos weren’t really what I expected – my lithe body folding itself into perfect shapes πŸ˜€ – but they were quite beautiful in their own way. Because you lot have been so wonderful and supportive:

Welcome to my yoga room!

Look at that photo, the Bear said in disgust: you look like Buddha! lol

  1. Hi Sara, I have loved following your 40 day journey and have found it to be so inspiring. Like you, I have small people in my life and was of the belief a home practice was too tricky. If I couldn’t have the perfect space, the perfect level of quiet and no interruption, it wasn’t going to be a real practice. Through your honest and engaging writing I’ve had quite the epiphany about a home practice. About yoga in general really! So, thank you from the bottom of my heart- are you sure you’re coming to the end of your blog writing? It’s really, really marvellous!

    • Dear Belinda,

      Thank you so much. Your words have made my day :). I will still blog, but I used to write about other things as well as yoga, and I will be going back to that (although i am sure that yoga will make a regular appearance).
      Blessings,
      Sara

  2. Thanks for sharing the photos… they’re wonderful!! It seems you should post on this topic as often as you need/want to, as you process the journey. AFter all, isn’t that what yoga is all about? Mindfully being in the moment. πŸ™‚

    btw: still can’t comment or like, without logging in all over again… when I’m already logged in. Seems like a setting glitch?

  3. Beautiful! Love your dedicated yoga room; the space looks uncluttered and open, with great natural light. You look centered and serene in it. I think your daughter’s pose sould be called Reverse Fairy Tada!-sana. πŸ˜‰

    • Hi, thanks for dropping by :). I don’t use dvds, but I have heard that Rodney Yee has great yoga dvds for all levels, from beginner onwards. I have a book of his, and I love his philosophy. I also use the internet a lot – try this: simple neck and shoulder sequence the internet is such an amazing resource. For example, I just typed in ‘yoga sequence for sore neck and shoulders’ to find that. A good book is handy to show you all the poses and instruction for how to do them. Good luck!
