Many people in metropolitan cities find comfort in going to yoga classes after work or on weekends. Yoga classes provide a calm, slow-paced, and relaxing environment in contrast to the ever noisy, distracting world.
When the pandemic took over suddenly, the noises and distractions came to a halt. No more yoga meetups after work. The only option is yoga from home.
Yoga from home doesn’t have to be boring and limited. It can be fun and lively.
Let’s dive right into 3 tips that help you crush your home session whether you do it yourself or via online training.
Set up your yoga from home in a minimalist way
Your headspace is important for a successful yoga session. To clear out all the distractions, clean up your room, and make enough space.
If you practice in the living room, make sure no dishes or leftover food is on the table. If you practice in the bedroom, make sure your clothes are neatly folded, your phone is put away, your mat is in a space where any yoga pose won’t be hindered.
Open the windows for fresh air, let your favorite tune hum in the background. Warm lighting such as a candle helps adjust and relaxes your eyes when you look at the TV or laptop.
Aromatic incense eases your mind and helps you focus better. So, pick what suits you.
Develop a consistent routine before each yoga session
Practising yoga from home isn’t limited to getting up and jumping right onto the mat. Setting up a routine to pace and ease yourself into the yoga session is the best way to do it right.
Morning time is arguably the best. Before that, rise up early and detoxify. Spend as little as 5 minutes for meditation and visualization for what you want to achieve that specific day, and get ready to be on your yoga mat.
Maintaining a consistent routine along with yoga makes you productive for the rest of the day.
Connect and inspire others through your online training
Training online is not as intimate as in person? Only if you let your perspective define your habit.
By creating space, getting warmed up before any yoga sessions, and being genuinely excited and passionate, you can inspire your friends to join the “Yoga from Home” sessions with you.
Make sure to extend an invitation of online training to like-minded individuals at least a few days ahead of your planned session. Set up your microphone, wifi, and a nice background to draw people in.
Imagine you are at a cafe and getting to know new people. People become less awkward online when you create a friendly environment.
Yoga from Home can be super fun, and creative activity once you do it right. Preparation, space and positive energy are all that you need to crush your yoga session with yourself or with your friends.
