How I’d Like To Enhance My Yoga Journey In the Future

AD | It’s safe to say I’ve been on a pretty incredible Yoga journey over the past couple of years. Yoga has become my life-line. My savior. My coping method. And my safe space both within myself and physically on the mat. I never thought I could love Yoga as much as I do. But really, truly, it means the world to me.

Finding Yoga changed my life. Literally. I started dabbling in Yoga when I was in the midst of the worst period of anxiety I’ve ever had in my life. It started off as just “something to do to try and help”. But slowly over time, my Yoga journey turned into one of the most important things in my life.

I currently use Yoga With Adriene religiously and you can read here about how much YWA means to me on a more personal level. And although I totally vibe with Adriene and her way of teaching and probably won’t ever stray away from that, I would still love to enhance my Yoga journey even more in the future.

There’s so much to Yoga. So much to discover about the practice and most importantly, about myself. The possibilities are endless. Our capabilities are endless. What we can experience and uncover during Yoga is infinite. So here’s how I’d like to enhance my own personal Yoga journey in the future:

Try another Yoga retreat

I’ve been very honest about my experience at the first Yoga retreat I went on. But although that experience wasn’t for me, I’ve definitely not put the idea of going to another retreat at the back of the closet. There’s so many different types of retreats available and of course, not all of them are going to work for everyone.

So I’d absolutely love to try another Yoga retreat within my Yoga journey. Maybe abroad this time? A Yoga retreat France based would be great. Or perhaps Italy?

Collaborate with Yoga brands on my blog

Although I’ve been lucky enough to write a couple of sponsored posts for Yoga related companies, I’ve never fully collaborated with a Yoga brand on a piece of content before. So that would be a really cool thing to do to not only enhance my Yoga journey but also the well-being elements on my blog!

Incorporate crystals into my practice

I’ll hold my hands up and say I know very little about crystals. I own 3 and have the book The Power of Crystal Healing but there’s a lot of information to take in and I’m still not 100% sure which crystals are best for which feeling / situation. But I’m very interested in the power of crystals and I’d love to introduce them into my yoga journey.

Improve my flexibility and nail those poses

Before I started Yoga, I was the more un-flexible person in the world. I couldn’t touch my toes. And it a seated forward fold, I could just manage to get to my knees. The way Yoga has improved my flexibility is OUTSTANDING. Each time I jump on the mat, I’m amazed at what my body can do. I’d love to take that even further!

Learn more about the history of Yoga

After watching the Netflix documentary On Yoga: The Architecture of Peace, I’ve become more and more interested in the history of Yoga and the origins. It’s not something I’ve ever thought about learning, as I didn’t think I needed to (and you don’t). But I think it’s something I’d find interesting and inspiring going forward.

And dare I say it… become a Yoga teacher?

I mean, right now, that’s a pipe dream. But if Yoga has taught me anything, it’s that we’re capable of much more both physically and mentally than we realise. So in the future, could my Yoga journey lead me to becoming a Yoga teacher? It’s definitely not out of the question!

If you practice Yoga, how would you like to enhance your Yoga journey in the future? Have you done any of these things mentioned here? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I have crystals throughout my house – the ones I’m drawn to most are rose quartz – have several big chunks of this. During my practice I like to have jasper for grounding and a clear quart cluster (clear quartz is programmable) which I hope will help me use my daily yoga and meditation for better clarity and a higher energy. People say they notice the high vibe in my home – there are a lot of plants and I try to keep it tidy and clutter free – crystals help I believe anyway.

    I’ve seen a couple of people go to yoga retreats abroad and they loved it, so hopefully you will too if you decide that’s what you’d like to do! I’m such a beginner with yoga but I really like Adriene’s videos, thanks to you suggesting her in a blog post months ago! x

    1. I’d love to go to a retreat abroad. It sounds like an incredible experience. Hopefully one day!
