YWA Move Day 8 – Rest

The YWA Move Day 8 practice from Yoga With Adriene came at a great time for me. I got sick! In fact, I didn't practice on Day 8 because of being sick and trying to get a tested in a Melbourne overwhelmed by COVID cases. While the discipline of practicing every day contains a rich bounty of benefits, taking some space from critical thoughts about missing a day when sick is also a good idea. I then resumed the 30 days of...

YWA Move Day 7 – Nourish

YWA Move Day 7 practice from Yoga with Adriene helped me to access a blend of suppleness, strength and space. I am grateful for this minor miracle. I love that yoga and any mindful movement is so transformative to the whole being.

YWA Move Day 2 – Open

YWA Move Day 2 - Open was another beautiful, kind, heartfelt practice from Yoga With Adriene. The theme was 'open' and after experiencing this session I now feel invigorated yet very relaxed. I mean, that's the ideal, right:) I noticed some thoughts of resistance or wanting to quit around the abdominal sequence of ywaMove.  I noticed how thoughts of not wanting to extend the comfort zone, and not want to do something where I feel 'weak' or 'fat' can be obvious, yes,...
