Establishing a yoga routine at home may be easier than you think. An at-home practice offers freedom and flexibility, enabling you to set a schedule that suits a busy life. It’s less expensive than attending classes, and you can select the types of poses you want to focus on in a given session.
Step three: Begin your practice
Now that you’ve learned proper form and prepared a space, you are ready to begin your routine. Some people like to become invigorated in the early morning. Others would rather use yoga to unwind after a long day. Whichever you choose, Freeman recommends waiting two to three hours after a heavy meal and one hour after a light meal. “Having a relatively empty stomach is important because during an asana practice there is much activity in the abdomen, and too much food in the stomach impedes movement,” he says. Also, Freeman adds, blood goes to the stomach for digestion after you’ve eaten, causing your body to relax and your practice to be less vibrant.
