Covid-19 means practising at home - here are some tips
Practising yoga at home is a new experience for some people. This can be an opportunity to develop the habit of doing home practice, even when normal classes resume. Home practice goes hand in hand with attending a yoga studio.
Yoga is a lifestyle and when you bring it into your home something special happens.
Here are some suggestions for making the most of your online/at home yoga:
For good sound quality use a speaker - Bluetooth is handy.
Prepare a suitable place for your practice. A clean, airy, warm, uncluttered, peaceful room is ideal.
Ensure you have what you need - yoga mat, blanket, cushion, bolster, kneeling stool.
Ensure you won't be disturbed. Leave the phone somewhere else. No pets to help you. The door need not be answered.
Practice on an empty stomach, at least 2 hours after eating. Avoid stimulants such as tea, coffee or alcohol prior to practice.
You may come up with your own rituals, such as a vase of flowers, a candle and some incense.
Do what helps you to experience the yoga and let go of other concerns.
