I am not going to harp on about @moaningmundy no fear! I want to establish why taking time out for yourself is a good idea. Even 5 mins on your mat... try it now...in fact no mat required either!
Crazy little thing called love
I'm on about Bhakti love and love of yourself.
No, it's not selfish to love yourself. It's a good idea because then you have the energy and happiness to go out and do good stuff or even amazing stuff. You're a better friend, person, passer-by, student when you're watered, fed and yoga-ed!
So take time out on the mat* to look after yourself!
Now I'm NOT talking about the Vogue or Cosmo version of "love yourself". You know the 'do yoga as long a you have the best mat and look like a bendy stick' or the 'be happy as long as you have these must have shoes and are photoshopped to perfection'
I'm talking just noticing and accepting and loving the shit bits of you; the bit when you are on the mat and your heels really don't reach anywhere near the floor today in down dog- no probs! The bit where you talk to Freshers with a globule of lipstick on your teeth- oh well! The bit where you notice you're sad or stressed and that's fine too, it'll pass. Just love it!
Luckily there are just as many good bits too. Meeting new people, trying new things, breathing, getting your head stuck into the books (next week!), leaving work for the day, watching The Great British Bake Off...
Anyway. Bhakti, love yourself, try Yoga Quota.
*literally no mat required and I didn't realise when I stocked Yoga Quota full with mats for people to use that that is a major selling point- but of course, it means you don't have to carry your mat around town with you and I've picked good quality ones too.
