Go Easy in Your Autumn Yoga Practice – Yoga for Fall
The summer has a common effect on many of us. It is basically a long holiday season that stuck with us ever since we were kids. Many of us, at least those of us lucky enough to be able to afford it, go on some sort of holiday and a lot of us set aside our normal routines, including our yoga practice.
Even most of the yoga classes are not available during the summer holidays. As the autumn approaches, it is time to get back on our track and standard routine that helps us function properly.
Yoga is amazing and if you are a seasoned yogi you already know that. It is without a doubt one of the best types of exercises to build a healthy and functional body and spirit at once.
Even if you are completely new to yoga and want to give it a try for the first time, autumn is the best time to start. Especially as it can be rather tricky to join a class later on when they progress and you don’t have the basics under your belt.
Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned yogi, you should make sure to start with appropriate yoga for fall.
Yoga for Fall
Most of us take it easy during the summer, which tends to reflect on our physical condition noticeably. Though we might have done a great deal of relaxation for our brain, our physical condition most likely isn’t at the place it was in June.
Furthermore, a lot of us tend to consume less healthy food and more alcohol during the summer holidays.
With that in mind, there are certain flows and adjustments that should be applied in your yoga sessions in autumn. It is important to focus on slow movements and poses that support our digestive system and can even have an amazing detoxing effect on our bodies. Let’s take a closer look at some of our top suggestions.
- Twisting poses to aid digestion: After a good warm-up, going into certain twisting poses can do wonders for your digestive system. Poses like Revolved side Angle or Chair twist, can be a great way to achieve that.
- Gentle and restorative asanas: Poses like legs up the wall can work like magic when it comes to nourishing your emotional and mental self.
- Pranayama – ‘the extension of the breath’: Sitting still and focusing on your breath can be quite challenging, yet extremely important for achieving the focus of your mind and aligning physical and spiritual worlds. It is probably one of the best ways to reduce stress, which is something we all need as the pressure in our jobs tends to rise in fall.
- Slow Flow: A great option is also a Vinyasa Yoga also known as a Slow Flow designed and presented by renowned yoga teacher Cyndi Lee. She came up with this unique and sustainable movement after dealing with here own post-injury evolution.
