Move for Fun

Weekly Yoga Home Practice Intention: Move for the fun of it!

Have you ever watched kids at the playground? They are not running, climbing, sliding and swinging from monkey bars to “get their workout in.” It is a form of play for them. They enjoy it! Smiles adorn their cute little faces as they move their bodies.

Can you remember how to playfully move? Is it possible to be so completely present with your body and the sensations of stretching and strengthening that joy naturally arises? Can you smile as you move?

On the mat experiment with some balancing poses-they easily invoke a spirit of play. Then, see if you can playfully move throughout your day. Don’t move to check it off your to do list; move because it’s fun!

If you want more great resources to close the gap between your yoga mat and your life, plus bonus offerings I only share with email subscribers, sign up for once-a-month email updates here!

  1. Thank you! As a mom, it is so easy to get trapped in the routines and necessities of family life. So much pressure we put on ourselves. Lists. Jobs. Fun? Thank you for helping me be truly more intentional; with my body and family. You help bring more joy to this beautiful life I have.

  3. Kids are so *real* about play and life in general. No pretension, no ulterior motives; just kids being kids and drinking in life. Thanks for the reminder that kids are great examples to us adults :).
