How To Start A Home Yoga Practice

I've been working on my own home yoga practice for the last several months, I had even committed to practicing 5 days a week at home months prior to the start of the pandemic. It took some getting used to, as I was used to feeding off the energy of a packed class. As a teacher I was starting to feel the need to practice alone, to give myself the opportunity to tap into something below the surface in the privacy of my own home. It wasn't hot, it wasn't super sweaty but it was apparent it was going to be a game changer.

Here's what I found to be helpful in starting a home yoga practice:

  1. Have an open mind. If you tell yourself you just can't get into it at home, you won't get into it.

  2. Dedicate a space for your practice and/or meditation. This can even just be a specific area depending on the space you're in.

  3. Give it some time. We don't build habits in a day, it takes time and patience and possibly exploring different things. (style, breath, time of day, etc)

  4. If you prefer a guided class, find. the virtual class that works for you. There are so many options, especially now with how everything is - you can practice with just about any teacher online.

  5. Grab a buddy and hold each other accountable.

  6. Stay committed. I've found that sometimes we just have to do it, even when we don't feel like it because after you're glad you did it!

Give it a try! You can even check out my virtual classes or classes on youtube!
