Expert Tips: Break Free From a Monotonous Yoga Routine
Yoga casts its charm over us with all its flexible and tranquil poses. Especially in the beginning, during our honeymoon phase with yoga, we live in this haze of yogic enchantment. However, as it often happens, time comes as a spoiler, we learn to master the simple asanas and finally the head and handstands, the enchantment diminishes and yoga becomes a monotonous routine. This is especially true for many yogis who practice the art at home.
As our yoga regime becomes more and more a part of our predictable routine, sooner or later we may find our practice dwindling. Why? The clear culprit for this lack of motivation is boredom!!!
The human mind craves creativity – repetitive routines make yoga teachers shirk their practice and push students to drop their memberships. This lack of interest and concentration also increases risk of injuries.
So, how can we get out of this rut and continue with our healthy routine without feeling apathetic? To help you find your answers, Yoga With Sapna brings to you valuable expert advice from renowned yogis from around the world. These yogis have “been there, done that” and come out victorious in their struggles.
