Firstly – I appreciate the winters in Wisconsin are slightly harsher than we have in UK – though I believe the sentiment of the article is still relevant about how ‘yoga-snacks’ and breathing (both integral parts of yoga) can be integrated into every day life.
Ultimately yoga in the winter can
- Enable physical strength and stability when walking through windy or icy conditions
- Support mental focus and stress management that can be more prevalent when the days are shorter
- Combing breath and movement can ‘cultivate inner calm and calm’
Personally I thoroughly enjoyed a recent snow day (if you look carefully enough you can see it!) – though unfortunately the yoga practice did not seem to help my surfing on the sledge on what can be hardly called a hill…..
More yoga practice required I think.
