Tips on How to do Yoga at Home

Find a comfortable spot for your yoga practice

Most of us will have to be more flexible and create a space when we want to practice. Try and find a spot where it's peaceful and quiet, with as much space around you as possible. An empty piece of wall can be handy as well since the wall is a great prop. If you like, it can be nice and even helpful to create some atmosphere with a candle or an incense stick.

Prepare your Yoga Accessories

All you really need is a yoga mat, preferably non-slip. There are many mats out there that work, but paying a little more usually, does mean a yoga mat that is more resistant to slipping. You can also buy an organic mat, to be environmentally friendly. Blocks are great, especially if your body is tight, but they can be replaced with books and other household stuff. A bolster is super nice, but for years I used a stack of pillows and blankets instead.

Choose your yoga style

You have to be sure that you have your own yoga style, the one that would fit your needs. It would be easier to know your yoga style if you have practiced most of them, with this, your body can easily recognize the right style that would benefit you.

Practice yoga regularly

Even once a week is regular and beneficial! Three times a week is great, every day is great too. Whatever that will work for you will be great for your overall well-being. It’s very important for you to achieve every goal, and then it is much better to set a goal of practicing three times a week, being able to do it and feeling proud of yourself, than to set a goal of practicing every day and feeling shitty if you practice only three times a week. A feeling of failure usually just makes you skip practices even more. So be honest, set realistic goals, and do what you can. A 10-minute yoga practice is still a practice and definitely counts.

Enjoy your Yoga practice

Don’t overdo it! Just Enjoy and Have Fun!
