Doing a Yoga Session Every Day

November 14 - 20


This week I challenged myself to do yoga for 10 minutes daily consistently. I have been doing yoga since around 2019, and I am fairly consistent when life is not too busy. However, whenever I am really busy with work and school, I tend to neglect it. I have taken a few in-person classes, but for the most part, I follow videos on Youtube just because they are free and allow me to do a session whenever I want. I also recently read the book Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy by Sadhguru which outlines the more spiritual origins of Yoga which often gets ignored in modern-day western yoga classes.

However, before I dive into my experience, I want to highlight some of the perceived benefits of meditation, according to

Experience & Effects

I am happy to say I successfully completed this challenge this week. I found that the best time to do a yoga session was a few minutes after I woke up. I often wake up feeling a lot of muscle tension, and practising yoga in the morning helped me feel a lot less tense and better physically. It also ironically helped me feel more awake. It also helped me feel a lot more relaxed and happy while getting ready for work or school.
