Getting on Our Yoga Mat Everyday: Why this Matters So Much Right Now

Join the inimitable Judith Hanson Lasater for a four hour exploration of why and how our practice can become “just a habit”. We will talk about how to create a daily practice without letting it morph into just another task to complete in the day. We will engage in discussion on this topic and practice asana to help us on our way to integrating a new approach to our daily practice.

Workshop Description

I remember when I was first began attending yoga classes. Now with the perspective of years, I look back and call that time the “honeymoon period” of my relationship with yoga. Every pose was new, and the glow I felt after Savasana was startling.

Naturally over the years, my relationship with my practice has gone through a myriad of stages. Now with 52 years of practice under my belt, I have a much deeper perspective of how my practice informs my life, and my life informs my practice.

And I have discovered that for me, and this is likely true for all serious students, yoga practice can sometimes become too much of a habit.

What Will We Explore?

In this workshop we will begin with a short discussion of how practice becomes “just a habit”. We will talk about how to create a daily practice without letting it morph into just another task to complete in the day.

We will look at why we resist practice and why we love it once we start.

We will discuss how to let our practice inform our life so that we can learn how to integrate into our lives all the potential lessons we learn on the mat.

The plan is to help us all reflect on the power we already possess to help us choose the life we want by what we learn from our practice.

Join us for two two-hour live sessions with discussion and asana practice.

Who is the workshop for?

Open to all dedicated yoga practitioners.


The workshop will be recorded and replay access offered to all students for 21 days after the event.


Upon completion of this workshop, you will receive a Yogacampus Certificate of Attendance. The course is also eligible for Yoga Alliance CPD credits.
