Yoga at home has become the new practice, whether you are taking a live class on Zoom or practicing on your own. It can be a challenge to assemble all the props, find a clear space, and uninterrupted time to make it happen. Keeping up your own practice outside of class is very important for general well-being and to nurture the things you learn in class. It is often hard to start. What to do? What comes next? Here are three tips for your own home practice:
- Pick a regular time. It can be 15 minutes in the morning before work but find something you make happen every day.
- Start small. Pick two or three poses that you enjoy and do them. Can't think of more? Repeat what you know. Repetition builds awareness and skillful action.
- Listen to your body. You are your own best teacher!
