i was wondering if you would have any tips to keep learning yoga in a way that does not involve talking.
allow me to explain. i’ve been doing yoga on and off for years. i love how flexible the whole practice is, that i can do it everywhere. it makes me feel capable and independent. as a person with anxiety and mild agoraphobia, i prefer to practice at home, and i would consider myself a beginner-intermediate. that being said, i’ve noticed that in the past few months i’ve been getting so annoyed/downright angry with the amount of talking in the instructional videos. it’s just so much! sometimes i don’t want to hear about the connection with the universe, or a cute dog, or even to be encouraged, i just want the instructions. i want silence, i do not want to think, i just want to feel my body. i want to learn how to move my body and listen to what it says and reveals as i go. my knowledge of poses is limited, of course, and i know there is still a lot to learn.
i asked for advice of a yoga friend and she said to just listen and respect what my body is asking for. i want to keep practicing yoga, and explore how grounded and capable it makes me feel, and i want to do it with no chit chat and in silence.
do you guys think that’s possible? which routes would you advise me to go?
thank you for taking the time to read me have a good day!
