So, even though a lot of my life under the Big Sky takes place outdoors with my favorite activities – hiking, skiing, and horseback riding – I have to say that most of the time my yoga takes place indoors. Today I found a peaceful spot on the porch at my in-laws to do my practice, and I felt like the benefits I enjoy from yoga increased tenfold, just from taking my mat outside. It’s that simple connection to nature that we so often lose amidst all things modern. But when we reconnect to it, the inner peace that results can change your perspective significantly. Yoga in nature is a winning combination. Even if you live in the city, see if you can find a place to practice outside and experience the feeling of nothing between your mat and the sky above you. Here’s the view from my downward dog today. Namaste.
