Students ask me all the time, “How many times a week should I be practicing yoga?”.  It’s a complicated question…. with an easy answer… or is it a simple question with a complex answer…

What I say is to work on practicing yoga on a daily basis.  I’m not talking about going to yoga class for an hour or more a day… I’m talking about being mindful in the morning, taking some deep breaths, listening to your body and stretching in ways that help you warm up and feel more alive.  Yoga is a discipline that we should use as a tool to keep our bodies toned and our minds quiet, and if you only do this twice a week… it’s not going to cause much change in your life.  But if you look at it as a daily practice (even for 5 minutes– or how about every time you need it during the day… this could turn out to be a LOT of yoga!), then you aren’t under any pressure to get your two or three yoga classes in a week.  There is no chance to feel badly about yourself.  But if you do want to make yoga class a GOAL.  Try three times a week… but make sure you do your home (or office) yoga practice on a daily basis.

Sometimes yoga practice can just simply be taking some time out and regulating your breath. Like I have said before… yoga is mostly about mind control.  If you can take your awareness out of that busy mind, and put it IN your body, you will quiet your nervous system and MAGICALLY start to feel better, more calm, more at peace.

Peace and Namaste!
