I spend a lot of time convincing my clients that progress happens one step at a time. We are often so focused on doing everything at once, achieving everything at once. But my focus when I teach is to ensure that my clients get something out of their training, that they engage, but most of all, that they keep training and evolve.
Discipline is one of the keywords, the next is change. Trying something new, and continue to do it, is one of the hardest things for us humans. To change a habit and stick to that change.
That is why I always encourage you to quietly integrate more movement and awareness into your everyday life in general.
You don't need to devote hours a week to yoga, or to change all your habits and routines at once. Even small changes in your habits can make a big difference. If you don't feel like you're ready for a regular yoga practice, or you don't have the energy to practice yoga one day, for example, try treating yourself to a good book instead.
But ... before you start reading, get up from the sofa, bed or deep armchair and place a pillow on the floor instead. Now sit in a comfortable position in the middle of the floor without support or lie on the floor and start reading. Make sure that you are not sitting in a draft and that you are sufficiently warm (the blanket from the sofa can come in handy here). While sitting or lying on the floor to read, move around, move your arms and legs, roll around, do anything you want, but stay on the floor as long as you can and you have already started your yoga practice.
