Go Within – Back to School Yoga Challenge – Day 4

I usually start to feel frazzled on Wednesday and that’s especially true this week! Meditation is a powerful tool that allows me to reconnect with myself and let go of expectations. 

Today, I offer you a short meditation practice that I often use with my sociology students. This practice is an opportunity to notice things that you might overlook as you are going about your day. As always, this challenge is truly yours – so if you’re not into guided mediations, feel free to meditate independently. 

Journaling is also a powerful tool for becoming aware of one’s self and experience. Today’s prompt is “What is one thing that you learned this week?”

Yesterday, I started the Race & Equity in Yoga Training led by Kelley Palmer. Kelley is an amazing teacher and I already learned so much in just one day of the training! One thing that’s really standing out to me is how well she demonstrates what good teaching is. She invited us to practice svadhyaya with some writing exercises. I loved them so much that I used them with my graduate students last night!

I hope you’ll leave a comment and tell us about your mediation practice or about something that you learned this week.

Thank you all so much for following along in this challenge!  I’ve loved reading your comments and getting to know you better. If you haven’t already, you should definitely check out the #fatkidyogaclub

And one more thing… tomorrow’s theme is rest and so I’ve decided to offer a pop up restorative yoga practice at 6:30 PM Central Time. I’m trying out a new registration system and I’d love your help piloting it! You can sign up for the practice at:
