unroll your yoga (mat) at home

Yoga group classes offer a wonderful community experience, but the magic of yoga can also be cultivated within the walls of your own home. A regular home practice allows you to tailor your yoga to your needs and fit it seamlessly into your schedule. Here's how to establish a home practice that nourishes both your body and mind.




Creating Your Sanctuary


The first step is designating a practice space. Ideally, it should be quiet and clutter-free, facilitating introspection. It is often a revolutionary shift in thinking - from looking for peace outside of your home, you inviting it in.


Building Your Routine


Don't be intimidated by lengthy group sessions. A 20-minute daily practice is enough to reap the benefits. As you become more comfortable, gradually extend your practice. Consistency is key. Aim to practice at a similar time each day to establish a routine.


Resources for Your Journey


There's a wealth of online yoga resources available. Websites and apps provide a vast library of yoga classes for all levels...

But nothing can replace the personal guidance of a teacher. Traditionally, yoga was taught in one-on-one lessons. This allowed teachers to create tailored practice choices based on the unique needs of each student. Learning happens in a session with a teacher, but practice deepens at home, similar to how guitar skills develop through regular practice after lessons with your teacher.

Now and then you go back to your teacher to receive feedback, discuss your changing needs or difficulties, and celebrate progress.


Listen to Your Body


Yoga is not about achieving picture-perfect poses. It's about connecting with your breath and moving your body with intention. Focus on proper alignment and prioritize mindful movement over pushing yourself into discomfort.


Embrace the Journey


A home yoga practice is a personal journey. Don't get discouraged if you don't see results overnight. “Yoga is a practice, not a destination”. Focus on the present moment, cultivate your breath, and enjoy the way your body moves. With time and dedication, you'll find that your home yoga practice becomes a source of strength and inner peace.
