Yoga To You

neon sign saying 'breathe'

This guest post comes from sober hero and yoga teacher Sue (@suek). 

============

Everyone knows they should be doing some physical self care right? And many of us have found yoga is an amazing tool for recovery. But I know doing yoga can seem like a huge leap; getting to a class can be a massive challenge, and even if you do make it to a class, it can be intimidating or overwhelming, especially if you’re a beginner but also even if you’ve been practicing for years.

I’ve made two 20-minute classes just for you Living Sober members. One for those times when you need to calm yourself down (like when you’re having a raving craving), and one for when you need to amp up your energy (when the pink cloud goes dark and you need a perk up, or to get going first thing in the morning). They are both chair practices, and should be good for any level of experience, even complete beginners.

There’s also a 50 minute practice for if you’ve got more time.

I purposely do the videos “raw” as in no make-up, no lights, no editing, no special effects. Just me and my laptop in the spare room. My yoga is for daily life.

Give them a try, and let me know if you find them helpful.

Ps. As I will not be in the room to watch over you while you practice, please take it easy and don’t over-strain yourself. These practices are very simple, and you will have the support of the chair, but you are responsible for looking after yourself and not overdoing it!

Lemongrass & Ginger Tea

Drink of the Week

This tea is just the ticket when you feel like something nourishing and warm, and I truly do believe that the act of making a drink like this is as restorative as the drinking of it.

Sprig & Citris

Drink of the Week

Drink of the Week: Sprig & Citris The first step in making this drink is to brew a ‘simple syrup’ (sometimes known as ‘sugar syrup’) but the difference here is that there is hardly any sugar!
