Summary: Explore the article to know how you can plan a rejuvenating weekend yoga practice.
Yoga is the perfect way to take a break in the midst of life-chaos and responsibilities and invest the time taking care of the Self. Practicing yoga helps a person to disconnect from the outer world and form a deeper connection with the inner-self. Yoga rejuvenates and re-energizes you to have a great start to the day. It is a disciplinary practice that teaches you the same. It is the best workout and even more wonderful on the weekends when a yogi is looking to relax and revitalize. Weekend Yoga is a great option to restore and further prepare your body and mind for the hectic week ahead.
Here are the few ways to go ahead and plan your weekend yoga practice:
Rejuvenate with Restorative Yoga
We understand that you want your weekend to be relaxing and a lazy one. We hate to get up in the morning on the weekends, especially if we have to work out. Yoga can be an amazing and fun activity to relax during the weekend. All you need to do is plan a restorative yoga session to help relax and rejuvenate, and further restore the internal damages done by the hectic and busy daily schedule.
Experiment with Weekend Yoga Styles
Instead of following a disciplined practice schedule, you can create your own exciting yoga variations such as disco yoga, laughter meditation, play music while practicing, practice with friend or partner, practice in the evening instead of morning, etc. A weekend can also be a perfect getaway to practice yoga outdoors. Practicing it at home or at studios can be boring, so go to the park, at the beach, countryside, etc., and practice your heart out in the lap of nature.
Declutter And De-Stress Yourself
Yoga is the best way to de-stress and de-clutter yourself, and practicing it daily helps to maintain a balance. At the weekend, you can make your yoga practice time more joyous by incorporating various physical activities combined with mental exercises to keep the stress at bay. It helps you have an energetic start to the new week.
Weekend Yoga For All The Busy Bees
Practicing yoga daily is an amazing thing. It works on the physical, mental, and spiritual well being. But if you’re someone who can’t do the regular practice, then weekend yoga session is for you. Start your practice a day ahead as it helps you to reset for the weekend. It also creates a fresh state of mind for the coming days. You can work on breaking the old habits and exploring new things. Practice the yoga asana you learned last week and then pick up a new pose. Also, work on building up and preparing the body and mind for the coming week.
What Are You Eating?
Weekend means cheat days, but do you know a little bit of carelessness can create havoc on your weeklong diet regime? So plan your weekend meals and diet carefully, and indulge in smart and mindful eating. Choose the food that is light and easy to digest. Eat food that is lightly cooked. Use herbs, ghee, flaxseed oil, olive, oil or coconut oil for cooking. Don’t eat throughout the day. Eat to feel satisfied and not stuffed.
You can indulge in leafy veggies- to make salad, juice, or soup, fresh seasonal fruits for parfait or salad and juice, plain nuts to add that crunch to your food. Vegan proteins are amazing and do the same if you are out with friends, family or at a party.
Yoga Teacher Training for Weekend Yoga Lovers
Yoga teacher training is an ideal way to grow into your practice and get the in-depth knowledge and understanding of yoga. But there are many yoga lovers who can’t attend the yoga training program due to time issue. Yoga teacher training is generally a month-long practice, but there are many schools that also offer weekend yoga training classes that stretch for around one year.
To have a rejuvenating weekend yoga practice session, you can also book a weekend getaway yoga retreat, yoga luxurious retreat, and yoga trip. So practice and have a Happy Yoga Weekend!
