It’s been a hot minute since I’ve shared a yoga sequence here. It’s not to say that I haven’t been practicing! After a brief stint where my practice was solely based on creating flows for my Tuesday night yin classes, I’m finally back into the grove of practicing for my own centering. Needless to say, I was super pumped when my real-life-grown-up job asked me to come up with a yoga sequence to help students spark their creativity before a writing seminar. Not only could I go back to my mat to center myself, but I could share the wealth of enlightenment I found there with the little people.
A little backstory: Before I got into yoga, I followed my other passion of reading and writing in all forms. I got my masters in literacy and now spend my 9-5 job (more like, 7-3) teaching littles ones not only how to read, but how books can change your life. At least I try to, anyways.
Okay, back to the yoga sequence. Outside of traveling, I would be happy to spend the rest of my life alternating between yoga-ing and writing. Not a bad gig, eh? And combining those two loves was better than I could dream. I was asked to create an infographic for a series of stretches that would help students channel their inner capabilities and allow them to express their ingenuity on paper. But this isn’t just limited to students. Anyone in need of moving pasting writer’s block, or simply feeling stuck in his or her current position can benefit from this flow. Like any true yoga teacher, I practiced my art before sharing it. The postures move through a series that alternate between opening up the heart to allow vulnerability and finding balance that causes you to identify your focus. By doing both, you can eliminate distraction and reignite your passion, two things necessary for creativity. Let me know your thoughts!
What do you do to break out of a rut?
