For many of us our approach to yoga in the last 2 months has changed drastically. I was quite surprised by my own journey and I wanted to hear back from people and get your thoughts on pros and cons on the three approaches .
Me: I dipped in and out of yoga all my life, mostly in studio classes. I always liked it but went long periods with doing nothing at all due to time constraints / laziness. Whenever I tried doing it at home I got bored or distracted so the do-your-own didn’t really work for me. I never did classes online, I thought I wouldn’t like them as they seemed too mechanical and impersonal.
I have always slightly struggled with the “religious” side of yoga, some classes have teachers go on for ages with mystical musings which I’m not into at all.
Now studios are closed and I have loads more time, so went online and I came to this site. I found I really like doing these classes, it focuses my attention, I can choose the teacher whose style matches my own and I learned lots. I now do it every day as part of my routine, who knew ?!?
What are your experiences on this topic ? what do you get from studio classes that you don’t get from the online ones ? do you manage to create your own routines and stick to it without the teachers’ pacing ?
