Whether you don’t have time to step into a gym or have a fear of working out in public, then working out at home can be a perfect alternative for you.

There are a few things to take into consideration before you start doing yoga at home:

1. The proper equipment

When starting any at-home workout routine, the proper equipment is the most important tool. Of course, you can perform these poses without any equipment, but to really maximize your time doing yoga at home, youare going to need the right tools to help achieve your goal. The most important item when it comes to at-home yoga is the yoga mat. We offer yoga mats in two colors: Think Pink and Be Blue. Our mats are anti-slip to help minimize any accidents you may experience. Along with the proper mat, some classes may require extra items to enhance your experience. Some of these items include foam blocks, foam rollers, and resistance bands. For more information on how to use those latter two, check on our blogs on how to use a foam roller and how to use resistance bands.

2. A quiet space with enough room

Yoga is all about centering your breathing, concentration, and having a peaceful mindset. So why perform yoga in a crowded, loud area? Your yoga space needs to be somewhere with enough room to stretch your body while also being isolated enough to concentrate. Some spaces that might work include:

  • Your own bedroom

  • Your living room when no one else is

  • using the space

  • A spare bedroom that you cleared out

  • Your basement if you have access to it

When choosing your yoga space, make sure that you have enough room to move around. You will be stretching your ar

ms all the way to the ceiling and stretching your legs from wall to wall. Being mindful of the space aroundyou so you can avoid any injuries.

3. Access to training material

Okay, so you accessed the proper equipment and found the perfect space to perform yoga. Now what? It may be confusing on where or how to start your yoga routine. Maybe you want to go off the memory of past yoga sessions or try to find easy poses if this your first time performing yoga. Do not go into your routine blind; try to find easy yoga videos on the internet that fit your skill level. Not every video works for everyone so find something that makes you comfortable. If watching videos are not your thing, then finding yoga blogs can help as well. If you are a beginning yogi, read our article on yoga poses for beginners.

4. A schedule that works for you

Once you have everything set up, the final thing you have to consider is your yoga schedule. Obviously, your life and schedule are very fluid, so trying to find a consistent schedule can take some trial and error. When figuring out a schedule, keep a few things in mind:

  • Try to pick a time of day that works for you, whether you are a morning person or a night owl.

  • Pick a duration of time that best works for you. If you are just starting out, doing 15-20 minutes sessions to start out may be good for you. If you are a more advanced yoga enthusiast, then doing longer sessions may work for you as well.

  • Figure out if this is going to part of your daily routine or if you have to pick days that work for you. 

  • Give yourself time to find a schedule that works with you. This is not a rigid schedule that you should beat yourself up about if you do not follow it to a tee.
