Benefits of Yoga
March 30, 2017
There are many benefits to practicing yoga at your home: you choose your own schedule, it’s free, and you do what you want. But there is also more of a concern when you start practicing at home: often you do not know what to do, or you are not sure to do it often or not. Here are some tips for finding your own yoga practice at home.
I started practicing at home especially for the physical aspect and benefits. I sometimes got frustrated with a course where we had a routine for just 2 minutes, but I wanted to take more time. I then started practicing at home on the head, the posture of the raven or the half moon. I had plenty of time to explore them all.
Beyond this purely physical aspect, practicing at home is a great disruption in your everyday life, a privileged moment with oneself, a way to disconnect, literally – from the online world, from the telephone and from daily chores. I like finishing my practice at home by a few minutes of meditation or relaxation.
My Practical Tips for Yoga at Home
Begin by taking courses in real life. Starting alone with yoga, watching videos or reading books or articles seems like a complex project. Why not take courses in real life that give a good overview of what yoga is, the state of mind, and some precautions to take if you have injuries, joint problems, Or even the other problems that can arise.
Find an easy yoga studio or place. I sometimes read that it is necessary to create a special corner at home, with candles and other yoga jewelry like malas. (you can check out wholesale malas here). If you don’t have any jewelry or accessories do not stop yourself from practicing yoga. If you travel often or if your apartment is small, you have to find a way to practice everywhere. I would love to practice yoga outside facing the sea, with fancy curtains floating behind me, a good smell of jasmine, but for now it is in the living room, which isn’t terrible I guess.
Music is another thing that helps me to isolate myself and not to pay too much attention to the noise of the street and other distractions. I have a playlist of music for yoga at home. It is also a good way not to concentrate on the passing time. I do not look at the time: I just know that when the music is over, it’s been a while now.
