Hi yogis! Welcome back to another yoga flow. This week is all for you seasoned yogis, so get ready for a creative, intermediate yoga flow.
*If you’re newer to yoga, have no fear! You can still certainly jump into this class. If it’s not quite your scene right now, be sure to check out these posts instead: 10-Minute Yoga Flow for Complete Beginners and The Ultimate List for How to Start Yoga.*
So, you’ve been practicing yoga for a while. You’ve gotten the hang of all the lingo, a lot of the poses and feel strong and steady. But maybe you’re feeling a bit stuck?
If that’s you, keep reading.
Being an intermediate yogi, or anything really, is almost like being a sophomore in high school. You know some things, you’re not necessarily “bad” at said things, but you’re not “great” either.
And trust me when I say this, but EVERYONE goes through this, because we all started as a beginner and had to work our way forward.
It can feel frustrating to dedicate so much time to something, only to feel like you’re falling flat. If this is you, below are my top three tips for getting out of your yoga “rut”.
Are you working on inversions and arm balances? Fill out the form below to get my personal tips!
Take a Yoga Break
That’s right – consider taking a break from yoga. If you’ve been doing nearly the same thing over and over, you’re not necessarily challenging your body anymore. Take this as an opportunity to go try that new hip thing! Don’t worry, yoga isn’t going anywhere. 😉
Take Up Strength Training
Speaking of doing new things… if you haven’t added strength training into your life, get on it! It’s incredibly beneficial to how your body feels overall, but surprise, it can also help develop more strength outside of yoga classes!
Do a Different Style of Yoga
If you’re a vinyasa loving yogi, hear me out on this one! Go do something completely different than what you typically do – maybe it’s that evening yin class or a beginner class. Actively seek out new experiences. I promise after a couple weeks you’ll have a new perspective on the things you’re working on.
