How to Make time for a Yoga Practice
I was first introduced to yoga as a young teen and have dipped in and out of it for almost 30 years now. I get so many benefits in my body and mind when I participate in a regular yoga practice — however, I always seem to stop as soon as I start to notice any major changes. Why? Well, life gets in the way. I skip yoga classes because the studio closes for vacation, my kid needs me, or I get busy with work. But in the past few years, I’ve needed yoga more than ever, so I’ve found ways to make sure I have time to devote to my yoga practice. Let me share some of those ways I make time for yoga.
Consider a Different Time
Do It Whenever You Can
Keep Your Yoga Gear Close
Always having your yoga gear with you, or already set up in your practice space, can make it easier for you to do a yoga class. I know there have been many times when I’ve had 20 minutes to do yoga but have had my yoga gear spread out all over the house and not felt like taking the time to get it. Now that my yoga gear is all set up, it’s much easier to drop into a yoga class.
Take Yoga Classes Online
Ever since I started doing virtual yoga classes, I’ve been able to have a more consistent yoga practice. I can do yoga classes from the comfort of my own home, I don’t have to worry about studio closures or crowds, and there’s no extra travel time. Plus, there are many more types of yoga classes to choose from!
Asana at Home offers a wide variety of virtual yoga classes that you can do in your own space. The teachers are awesome and provide great feedback and you’ll certainly find classes you love that fit into your schedule.
