It only takes doing yoga once or twice to realize how healing it can be for your body and your spirit. While regular yoga practice makes your body stronger, there are also multiple ways that it will support your emotional health as well. It only makes sense that you want to incorporate yoga into your life as regularly as possible.
The problem is that it isn’t always feasible to make a special trip to practice for a half hour, or maybe a session isn’t available when you want it. Does this mean that yoga will just have to wait for another day?
Absolutely not. You can create the perfect yoga sanctuary in your own home. Here are a few tips for creating a yoga environment you’ll love.
Claiming Your Space
For do it yourself yoga at home to be a success, you need a dedicated space that’s free of distractions – both physical and emotional. Believe it or not, this is possible no matter how limited you are on space.
Ideally, it’s great if you have an entire room to set up as your personal yoga sanctuary. However, this isn’t an option for most people, so instead look for a small area that you can call your own. This might be an area in your bedroom, a corner of the main living space or even a spot on your patio or backyard.
Having a dedicated space is important for feeling connected to your home practice. Your space doesn’t need to be elaborate. The only requirements are that there is enough room for you to practice comfortably and safely, that you can do so with minimal distractions and that the area is free of any clutter that might distract you during your practice.
