Preparing your physical and internal environment for a Virtual Yoga Class

Virtual Yoga Class

Preparing your space for a virtual yoga class with Asana at Home can look different depending on your preferences. Not only are you preparing your physical space, but you will need to prepare your internal environment. 

For some, this could look as simple as pushing a pile of laundry aside that has been sitting in your living room for far too long. Or maybe you are the type of person that in order to completely concentrate you might have to move that pile of laundry to a different room. 

It could be you are the type of person who may have to set aside extra time to fold and deal with that laundry pile before the class starts to completely immerse yourself in your practice.

A Bit Cluttered for Yoga?

Declutter the physical space

Remove physical distractions either from your sight or from your space directly in front of you. Depending on how you work best this could mean that you simply just need to push it aside or you could be the person that needs all physical distractions to be limited from your space. You will need to take a couple of minutes to do this before your class begins regardless of which category you fall into. 

Bringing the essentials to Your Virtual Yoga Class

 Not only does this mean to have your props within arms reach, but it can also include items that you feel bring you peace and solace. Again, this can look like several different things depending on each unique personality. Bring what you need, what you love, and what makes you happy. A water bottle is probably a good idea to have on standby as well.

Decluttering the internal space

Some of us are good at blocking out distractions that are pinging around in our brains. Some, not so much. This might mean that you will have to schedule a class during a time that you feel the least stressed about your to-do list. It could also mean tackling your to-do list a little beforehand. Getting in the right mindset takes practice and can be difficult to do sometimes. So, doing things such as turning off your cellphone or moving to a space that allows you to disconnect better might be what you need to do.

Taking a few extra minutes to create the right atmosphere and brain space will result in a better practice overall.
