Yoga To You (Guest Post)

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!

    This is really helpful Sue…having something to bring my body back into focus, instead of engaged in fight or flight internal worries about recovery! Thank you
