Where to find inspiration.
When you get in a rut with your workout routine, here's a great idea for inspiration.
1) A favorite book-pick one of your favorite stories and make up a yoga move for each of the characters. Then, recreate the story through the yoga moves. Naturally, there are several yoga moves for animals, certain individuals such as dancers and warriors, and objects (such as boats and chairs) that you can look up if you help.
2) A country you would like to visit or a place that you have been-same thing as above..think of the animals you would see on the trip, and what you would do (or what you did, if you are reliving a trip) and then act it out with yoga poses.
3) Jump Rope-they say that jump roping is an excellent activity for your heart, brain, and lungs. As you know, these three organs are the life support for the rest of your body. Make a bet with yourself that you can jump rope for 3 minutes without stopping (you can slow down of course). If you win, give yourself high five-you rock!
4) A visit to the zoo-this is great for kids and adults. Act out the animals that you would see at the zoo. Go ahead and run like a cheetah for a couple of seconds, jump like a poison dart frog, and slither around like that anaconda snake.
If you have any more ideas for inspiration, let us know! We need some too sometimes.
