my fav yoga practice for the new year

Hello 2024, we are hereeee!

We are here and ready to bless these new beginnings, to reframe our obstacles as opportunities, and to welcome this year feeling soulful, strong and steady.

Are you with me?

Great, because I’d love for you to meet Ganesha, one of my favorite Hindu deities.

Ganesha is a well-loved, highly revered, elephant-headed deity that’s called upon for various reasons, but most notably to be the remover of obstacles and to bless new beginnings.

I first learned about Ganesha & the Hindu pantheon through my 300HR YTT with Ashley Turner, and it was through this training that I came to love and lean on Ganesha’s myth and teachings.

(so much so that I have a statue of him in my office always staring back at me!)

Ganesha is known to be clever, wise, skillful, patient, supportive and steady. He’s associated with the muladhara (root) chakra which represents initiatory energy, or the same energy we’re currently experiencing (hello 2024).

Because of the above, it’s especially favorable for us to call upon him & what he stands for as we enter into the new year.

The new year brings a lot of excitement, angst and uncertainty, and as holistic yoga students, we want to welcome all of this while staying grounded, strong and steady (just like Ganesha would).

To do this, I recommend joining me for this grounding Ganesha practice that requires 30 minutes of presence.

After your on-the-mat practice, I recommend taking the time to reflect upon these questions:

๐Ÿ˜ What do you want to begin in 2024? What ideas, projects, goals or dreams are at the initiatory phase? How are you feeling about these new beginnings?

๐Ÿ˜ Name 1-3 obstacles youโ€™re facing, then brainstorm how you can shift your attitude or perspective towards them? If Ganesha was speaking through you, what wisdom would you hear with those big, receptive ears?

๐Ÿ˜ What do you need to feel steady & strong so you can start the new thing or reframe a current obstacle as an opportunity? What practices are most supportive?

I hope these practices provide the supportive energy you need as 2024 begins.

May we all have a blessed new year ๐Ÿ™
