Are you new to yoga and looking to start a home yoga routine? During this blog we’ll explore some of the tools I’ve developed for beginners to successfully set up a yoga practice at home.
What are the Benefits of Practicing Yoga Online at Home?
Practicing yoga, breathing, and mindfulness online allows you to practice in the comfort of your own home at a time that suits your schedule. Taking away barriers like not finding enough time in your day to join classes or not being close enough to travel to a yoga studio.
If you're practicing yoga you just need a mat and space in your house to put the mat. While for seated breathing techniques, pranayama and mindfulness you’ll want to use an upright chair or cushion.
Setting aside a regular day and time for practice can be very helpful when you're beginning online practice at home to create a regular routine. If you can find a time when you won't be disturbed by friends, family and pets.
