Yoga is a 5,000-year-old regimen for body, mind and spirit that originated in India and is now practiced all over the world. As an
exercise routine it is simple, holistic and needs no fancy equipment, which is why it’s perfect to practice in your home. Here are a few
pointers to get you started.
CREATE A COMFORTABLE SPACE
• Clear an area on a flat floor surface and a clear flat wall. Dim the lights and have a mat that you can roll out when needed.
GET YOUR EQUIPMENT
• Mat, block, strap, and a bolster are the usual essentials.
• If you don’t have these items you can use items around the house – books make good blocks, a belt for a strap, and use towels or pillows for a bolster.
CREATE THE ATMOSPHERE
• Candles, incense, and music help set the scene. • Try a yoga playlist on Spotify for a true yoga musical sound. • Follow along with a book, an app, or an online video. • Try free apps like Daily Yoga or Yoga for Beginners • Doyogawithme.com lets you stream yoga video or audio for a small fee.
Be sure to relax and Savasana when you’re done! And when you would rather practice in a group setting, there are surly some great studios in your area you can try!
ENJOY YOUR PRACTICE!
