Starting something new can be the HARDEST THING. Your first yoga class, a blind date, a home practice, you fill in the blank! It took me at least five years of taking yoga classes to finally commit to the elusive home practice. The key, for me, was to do it first thing in the morning. Make a cup of tea, light a candle, and get on the mat. I started with asana, then a dare got me to add pranayama, then a few years ago, my teacher Rod Stryker got me hooked on meditation. Now it’s as essential as brushing my teeth, my “mental floss!” To give you hands-on support with your own home practice, Douglas Ridings will offer a Home Practice workshop at 8 Limbs Capitol Hill on March 22nd.

This month the “first time” at 8 Limbs is this new blog! It’s a great format to allow us to more regularly share tips on this journey of yoga and mindful living. Our blog will also let you in the back door of 8 Limbs to show you what we’re excited about at our studios and in our communities.

Plus, we want to hear from you: what are the obstacles to your own practice and how have you overcome them?
