Create a space in your home that is specifically designated for your yoga practice. Give yourself plenty of room to move comfortably and freely. Purchase yoga props! Props such as, a strap, blocks, blanket, towel, a zafu or firm pillow, and a bolster are all great tools to help support you during your home practice.
Yoga should be practiced on a regular basis in order to receive maximum benefits. A minimum of three times per week is recommended. Even if it's just 20-minutes, make a commitment to yourself and to your practice.
Wear comfortable clothing and practice with bare feet.
Try to practice yoga on an empty stomach. Do not eat at least 2-3 hours before class. Drink plenty of water before and after your practice to help the body flush and release toxins.
Set reasonable personal goals. Listen to your body. Progress at your own rate, allowing your practice to mature gradually. Learn to distinguish between stretching and straining.
Breathe evenly and deeply through your nose during yoga practice. Let the breath lead the body’s movements. The breath should flow easily and gently, never being altered or forced.
Most importantly, enjoy your yoga practice! Allow yourself to surrender into the experience, putting the events of the day aside. Take this time with yourself and honor your body.
