How To Have The Benefits Of Yoga Without Doing Any Poses

Yoga benefits can come to those who don't feel like putting on their yoga pants. It's called off the mat yoga and it works!

As a committed yogi for almost 20 years, I must admit that there are days I just don’t feel like doing downward dog. And when this is the case, I rely on the other aspects (limbs) of yoga to keep me on track with my practice. If you seek the yoga benefits, but have no interest in doing yoga poses – whether it’s because you think it’s boring, or not a real workout – you may be happy to know that you can get the benefits without ever having to put on your yoga pants.

In my next video, I share tips on how to engage in a yoga practice that doesn’t require doing the poses.

  1. Great post. Kindness is beneficial in so many ways.

  2. I also have tons and tons of journals 🙂

  3. And what do you do with them all? I’m starting to think about just getting rid of them. They take up space and I’m not even sure I want to see them anymore.

  4. Thanks for watching, Karen.

    You go girl, Elysha. This of- the-mat yoga is really cool. Stuffs that the yoga teachers mention in passing but not in depth (because they are off the mat?). Maybe a special series in the future like your review of exercise videos?

  6. Thanks, Terry! I do plan on expanding on this topic. I’m so happy to know you’re interested!
