6 Reasons to Go to Yoga Solo
1. Maintaining a routine strengths your commitment to your Self.
This act of self love gives you the ability to be more emotionally self sufficient.
2. Not being dependent on another person’s schedule makes it is easier to maintain a regular practice.
A friend’s inconsistency can distract you from being disciplined in the beginning, even slowing your momentum and your initial enthusiasm. Having a regular practice evolves into a regular habit like brushing your teeth. Yoga is sacred personal, breathing space from your external world. The opportunity to retreat, reevaluate and process the ups and downs of life.
3. Develop focus, and dedication.
You can deepen your experience with your own self-driven intensity without feeling self -onscious or distracted. The chance to practice at your own pace, it may even feel less competitive. This opportunity allows you to move with “stira sukha,” using yoga as your moving meditation.
4. Going alone, you’ll have the time to pay more attention to the teacher’s cueing which will help cultivate mindfulness and presence.
With no one else’s time constraints, you may even ask for some extra guidance.
5.Committing to your yoga practice will be ground you.
Going alone, the studio can become your home away from home and will become private “you” time – a chance to re-balance and center yourself in a supported loving space. This is especially important when you are frazzled.
6. Meet new friends.
The likelihood of developing quality friends in the studio is very high as most yogis have similar interests. Some of the most treasured friendships have been nurtured over mat time, as yogis in class can witness each other’s break through whether emotional or physical.
Going to yoga solo is a devotional practice that quickly helps illuminates the priorities in your life in a positive non-judgmental environment.
As you look around the room, you’ll notice that you aren’t the only one coming alone. Everyone is showing up for the same reasons. In this community of yogis, the energy of the room is lifted, it’s a special rare occasion to be a part of something universally healing. Class can inspire the confidence to be an individual, and at the same time, you’ll realize that you aren’t alone. We are all one.
