Though it might not feel like it, in these dark, cold days of January, the daylight hours for us Northern folks are slowwwly creeping longer. Really! Before you know it, it’ll be spring! But let’s not rush things, eh? There’s something to be said for the quiet stillness of these winter days, and what better time is there than the birth of a new year to nurture and restore! And so, dear yogadorks, we invite you take a moment for a little new decade pampering by checking some great links below. And if you haven’t already, head on over to our giveaway post for a chance to win Judith Hanson Lasater’s “Living Your Yoga”, a guide to living your practice in daily life.
- Check out stellar #yogadork Nancy Alder’s Winter Solstice Yoga for some helpful tips on a restorative yin practice and some poses to get you started. (psst.. that’s her in a snowbound, jungle gym supported adho mukha vrksasana! restorative in it’s own right)
- Flashback to last year’s Hangover Yoga: Should You Hang Upside Down?
- Editor’s fave: Too Busy for Savasana? Why We All Need to Play Dead
