Judith Hanson Lasater in her book “Living Your Yoga” discusses that in order to develop a personal practice you have to well…make it personal. She suggests in her first section to develop a list of what is important to you about living your yoga. Now yoga is not necessarily asanas or poses so “your yoga” really can refer to any of aspect of yoga. I would go further to say that it refers to any part of “spiritual/wellness practice”. So whether one does sun salutations in the morning or a daily Christian devotion it is their practice and therefore has importance to the individual that practices it. So what is important about my wellness and/or spiritual practice? For me it is consistency. I really need something consistent that keeps me balance. I also need a practice that helps me maintain mindfulness so that I develop the awareness to know what parts of my body are harboring stress or if I’m am emotionally eating and not just eating for nutrition. I also need a practice that keeps me strong and healthy. Finally I need a practice that calms me and provides me a space to be me and connect with my inner peace. She suggests revisiting this list on occasions to see if anything has changed or needs to be added.
