A Day In The Life Of a Yoga Teacher: Erin

I was lucky enough to convince Erin - who works with our team and also on her own business - to share HER morning rituals with us, as part of our 'day in the life' blog series.

My daily routine varies a little depending on the day and what time my first morning class is but looks a lot like this:

6.30am: wake up, oil pull, dry body brush, shower, drink 1-2 glasses of lemon in warm water

7.00am:  yoga practice (I often fit this in later in the day depending on time and how I feel), 30 minutes meditation.

8.00am: breakfast: recently I've been loving amaranth, pumpkin and coconut porridge or a poached egg on gluten free toast with avocado, kale and cashew cheese.



8.30am: I am working on creating a new habit where I don't check emails first thing in the morning, instead I start tackling my to do list (which I try to write the night before).  I try and knock over one of the hardest tasks first so I'm not procrastinating and feel a sense of accomplishment.  As I have multiple areas in my business; yoga teaching, health coaching and I'm a Doterra essential oil wellness advocate my work will vary from day to day whether it's paper work, planning my classes, working on my health coaching or essential oil business.  

10.00: head off to teach a yoga class

1pm: Lunch:  Whenever I can I try to have a big nourishing lunch as I normally teach in the evening so a big lunch not only helps keep me sustained longer but also means I don't need to eat a huge dinner which is preferable as it's better for my digestive system and quality of sleep.  

1.30pm - 4pm: work on my business

4pm onwards; if I'm teaching in the evening and most weekdays I do, I'll head off to teach 1 or 2 classes.

7.30pm onwards: return home to have dinner, spend time with my partner and wind down for bed.
