Swadhyaya (Self-Study)

45 min - Practice


We turn our attention inwards and tune into Swadhyaya—self-study or self-investigation. We move slowly and steadily, watching our internal mindset and thoughts as we move through the practice. You will feel aware of the internal space.

That was just beautiful and oh so helpful for me today. Lots of self recrimination going on in my head today...I won’t spoil the ending of this self-reflective practice, but suffice to say it was just what I needed. Thank you so much 🙏🏻 Namaste ✨

Really enjoying all of this series. I have one question though, I’ve dabbled in yoga in the past and only recently started a daily practice and over the last 10 weeks I’ve gained 8 pounds. Is this normal?

Hello Vikki, I've reached out to you in a private message. Let me know if you have any questions! :)
Yay Jenny !! Oh how we can be so hard on ourselves huh?! So much strength in simply being aware when we are in these mental spaces, then having the willpower and understanding to move away from that given narrative into or onto another more productive self loving and caring dialogue :)) You're welcome so much, big hug and Namaste to you!
Hey there Vikki ! Thanks for being here! That's a super tough question for me to answer here, so many variables involved:) Depends on what type of practice, what you eat daily, how your body is functioning in general and so on. I see that Ashley-Marie Olgado has responded and messaged you privately, if you feel like you'd like to message me there, feel free to!

Got to be honest - I was a little emotional by the end of this practice. I do enjoy time alone however, do struggle being with myself.  I  recognized this in practice 1 and felt it in this practice. Not trying to be profound but this practice helped me understand why. A lovely practice that I am taking with me off the mat. Thank you Robert!  🙏 
Hi M Angela 🙏🏽 I love this so much, thank you so much for sharing this experience! Sounds to me that could have been a huge ‘noticing’ or awareness you had on the mat? Sometimes we see and feel more when we slow down and minimize outside distractions and stimulations - more space in our minds to contemplate and reflect 💚🙏🏽
