Yoga and meditation are excellent ways to find peace and calm in the midst of anxiety and uncertainty. To find compassion for ourselves and others. To find joy and celebration in unexpected places. To find clarity, creativity and confidence.
Today, these powerful practices are more relevant and helpful than ever.
The mission of HUM, from the very start, has been to inspire and empower as many people as possible to embrace a daily HOME yoga and meditation practice. Because I know from experience that this is where we can get the most of the transformative and exponential benefits the practices offer. With this mission in mind, I have created a growing library of free content to help you cultivate a home practice that is enjoyable, motivating and meaningful. And of course my collections of thoughtfully-designed and ethically-made practice essentials are there to help you make your HOME practice a delightful, uplifting and very personal experience.
Now, more than ever, HOME has become a haven for each of us. I never imagined that we would all be spending so much more time at home, that schools, businesses, gatherings and yoga studios etc. would be temporarily closed to avoid the spread of Covid-19. It’s certainly an intense and unprecedented event for all of us. And for many of us, it may be fraught with fear, doubt and anxiety.
Daily yoga and meditation can help. Really!
And so I think this could be the perfect time for us to focus on cultivating our personal yoga and meditation practice, to create our home sanctuary, and to find the most perfect rituals to make our practice more powerful and meaningful.
I’ve gathered together links to the most relevant and useful resources I have to help you and support you as you create or go deeper into your own personal home practice. Pick and choose what you feel meets your needs right now. You may have read some of them already, but maybe today you will see them with new eyes, and new needs.
I hope this content serves you well. It has been created with the best of intention, and a whole lot of love. Please share with anyone you think might benefit from these ideas.
