Taking a break?

Hi,

I would like to pick the brains of fellow teachers and yogis here.

From the middle of December every year I take a break by closing my classes till the first week in January of the new year as SA basically comes to a stand still during the summer holiday and with Christmas and New Year celebrations.

During this break I also take a break from yoga, I basically do only about 20-30 sun salutations every second day, but no other asanas.

I increase my meditation times and sittings per day as I don't have the added stress of my normal business and householder life.

I usually also go away into the bush on a retreat during this time for a few days doing mostly meditation and lots of relaxing.

My question, when you take a break what do you do? How do you spent your time? Do you scale down or do you increase your asanas and mediattion?

Sun salutations are more of a winter activity...

I essentially eat well when I am taking a break. Holidays are about food and rest and meditation for me and asana practise falls away at this time of year.

I usually only take breaks when I can tell my body is asking me too or if I'm feeling particularly uninspired by my practice. I'm actually on a break now, but I don't think I can last one more day...it's been 6 days!

And I break from all asana, but I might do a few sun salutations if I feel like I need a stretch.

Fortis in Arduis, I just love the sweat I break from sun salutations during summer...it feels good to me.

Xela, I have to break as most, nearly 90%, of my students go away during this time and the remaining income from the students are not enought to carry the rent of the hall, I think you can understand this.

You don't have a space year round? I'm unsure of how it works, as I'm not a studio owner (or teacher...yet anyway. )
