“Yoga does not remove us from the reality or responsibilities of everyday life, but rather places our feet firmly and resolutely in the practical ground of experience. We don’t transcend our lives; we return to the life we left behind in the hopes of something better.” - Donna Farhi

A guest post from Jenniferlyn (JL) Chiemingo of The Travel Yogi.

Oh sweet bikini, I love you so much.  You are now faded and sand-worn and it’s time to retire you.  I don’t want to let you go because you hold so many memories; memories of great beaches, experiences, and even crazy close-up animal encounters.  I have grown and changed while wearing you.  I have laughed and cried while wearing you.  These experiences reside in my heart, but I still associate them with you.

Has the passion for your yoga practice faded? Is your motivation to hit the mat at an all-time low? Can’t seem to make it to your regular classes anymore, and your home practice has lost its luster?

This happens to every yoga practitioner at some point. Though a regular yoga routine is comforting and familiar, if you don’t change things up from time to time, eventually that routine will turn into a rut.

Invigorate Your Senses

Aromatherapy is a powerful tool that can calm or energize your senses.  There are so many ways you can incorporate the benefits of aromatherapy into your home: candles, essential oils in a bath or shower, flowers and fresh fruit, and even the aromas wafting from your kitchen.  One of my favorite ways to fill my home with warmth and energy is to simmer a pot of water on my stove and fill it with orange peel and cinnamon sticks.  The orange peel energizes while the cinnamon warms and soothes. Try this at home and watch your mood shift!

Winter has a way of gently reminding, and sometimes demanding, a different pace through life. Slow, all things slow.  Which is counterintuitive for most in this fast-paced culture where more is better, and faster, and is far superior.

Giving Back the Gift of Yoga

The idea of giving back may have a different expression for each person, but the benefits are felt by all those involved in any act of giving. The Give Back Yoga Foundation believes in the power of giving back and in the transformational benefits of yoga and mindfulness — which is why the Boulder based national non-profit is leading the way in yoga service programs, trainings and resources to awaken, transform and give back. One of the underserved populations Give Back Yoga supports is veterans.

Traveling can be fun and exciting yet stressful all at the same time. You have the pleasure of seeing new destinations, seeking new adventure, or revisiting old stomping grounds. But between airport security, flying, business meetings or even family get-togethers you can often find yourself stressed out or anxious. Which means travel is not a time to abandon your yoga practice, but instead embrace it wherever and however you can.
