Good morning Yogis! Today is both World Health Day and National Walking Day USA. So, before we begin practices inspired by the 8 Limbs of Yoga, we will align today’s positive practice with these holidays.
PS did you know World Health Day has a different theme each year? This year’s theme is “Building a fairer, healthier world for everyone” to combat health inequities exacerbated by the COVID crisis.
Bonus Daily Asana Challenge
We are in the middle of a daily Asana practice challenge for April! Please see our Asana Styles page for links to youtube videos for various Yoga Styles. For World Heath Day today, I recommend a dynamic Vinyasa series to focus on physical health, or a Yin and Restorative Series
I usually practice with the Yoga Studio App rather than streaming services, so I can download my favorite classes and use in areas without Wifi or phone signal. Today I am trying a new mental health focused class, one of the specialty focuses I have not yet tried.
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is a self-care practice of your choice focused on your physical or mental health for today’s World Health Day. April is Stress Awareness Month and today is also National Walking Day USA, so perhaps consider a meditative walk or hike. I consider Asana practice both self-care and exercise, so perhaps try one of our suggested Asana classes above. Or, check the info graphic below for a variety of self-care practices for mental health and stress relief, and add or increase a couple of these practices to your day.
If you are interested in nutrition and diet, I strongly recommend doing research on MacroNutrients which is widely accepted by the scientific and fitness communities. Or, perhaps do some more digging on ancient Ayurveda if I piqued your interest and you enjoyed our star chart exercise. I’m just a nerd and like all the learning 🙂
