How Do I Get Over Myself & Get On My Mat at Home?

In today’s episode of “From the Curvy Mat,” I’m tackling another tricky reader question: “How do I get over myself & get on my mat at home?” 

In the video below, you’ll hear:

  • How I don’t relate to this question at all (ha!)
  • The one tip that has made it SO much easier for me to keep up with my home yoga practice
  • How you can figure out what is best for your home yoga practice on any givenn day

Once you watch the video, be sure to leave a comment below about how this simple shift could make a difference for you. I mean, we’ve gotta help each other out with this — home yoga practice can be hard when you don’t have support!

    The only thing that I commit to is just get on the mat every day. No time limits, no preset plan. Some days I go through the full series (Ashtanga) some days, it’s 2 sun salutations. I find that the goal of just getting on the mat with no other goal, keeps me on my mat daily.

      Yes! I am so with you on that — I find that approach always leads me where I need to go. Thank you for sharing!

    Nice video, Anna! I’m still trying to find a routine, habit and/or structure, but having all of my little yoga things set out for me in my space helps. When I make it to the space, all I have to do is sit on the floor and run your “30 Days of Curvy Yoga” and I’m ready to go. Getting there can be challenging, but once my butt is on the floor and I see your lovely face, I feel great, because now, that’s all I have to do.

      Thanks so much for this! It’s such a great reminder — getting started is often the hardest part, but it’s amazing how much of a difference it can make when we do.

    Thanks Anna! I love the “could” aspect. WhenI try to talk myself out of my practice I stop and try to figure out what or where the resistance is coming from. My mind may be telling me I need a good strong flow practice when my body needs a slower Yin type practice Once I stop and listen I am more apt to get to my mat. Then it’s like coming home.

      That’s wonderful, Beth — thank you!
