"Striving to be the change."
I did a yoga practice tonight for the first time in far too long. It felt sooooo good! Will write more about my personal journey in my own check-in thread soon. In the meantime I just wanted to pop in here to let folks know Yoga Download is offering another of their free yoga challenges, this time a 2-week challenge, that's on right now. (It started on November 5, 2023, but you can jump in at any time. Typically the classes remain free for a few days after the challenge ends, for folks who fell behind, I believe.)

The theme of this challenge is "Yoga for Balance and Grounding." (I immediately thought of @PetiteSheWolf when I saw that.) Typically these challenges offer a choice of 2 classes to do each day, usually of varying lengths, and with one of the options beginner-friendly. Sign up here to get free access to the challenge, if you're interested.

"Be Strong - Be Active - Be empowered."
I've gotten into doing a headstand everyday no matter what

My Taiji forms are somewhat hybrid, I incorporate much Yoga Asana style into them. I do my Yoga at home, some crow and various poses but no fixed routine. I lift the iron 5 days a week and various calisthenics like pull-ups and push-up (often on a medicine ball).

Meditation is a daily practice.

Hello Bees
I would love to participate to this chat, and get some advices, and I think some of us are wishing to practice more with this new year starting, so who wants to share his practice?
On my side i use yoga for some streching on evening.

Coucou @graoumia ; I am lucky that the gym just by me provides a few good-quality yoga classes/week, my own goal is to do at least one a week.
And oh, as I gotta continue work on my balance, I should keep up with the serie of moving balance asanas I was doing in December.

A little while ago ; but it is more "experimental" that really prepared, I try to put 3 - 4 balance asanas in a row, and do the other side, 3 times each side.
e.g. tree, toe-to-hand side then front front, go down in a lunge, come back with a high knee.
or tree (always a safe starting point, LOL), stretch foot in front, brush the leg back without putting foot on floor, reach Warrior 3 (or any asana that has your bust parallel to ground).
Or insert dancer, or eagle, anywhere fun.

My kinesitherapist wanted me to work on my balance, and doing that regularly did help. His point was that doing moving balance exercise would force me to work with imbalance.

Hello yogis, i hope you are all fine
I tried a first moon salutation this evening, I saw several variations on the web.

Are you doing moon salutation ?

I need to practice more to be able to enjoy it, and I will do some poses i like to relax before bed…

Have a nice day /evening

When I practice yoga it's usually in the evening (or late at night!) So I guess it's technically all moon salutation. ;)

I do like this sequence from Shiva Rea though:
