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 four: Find a tranquil finish
To wrap up your home yoga session in good form, spend at least five minutes in Savasana, says Bender Birch. Restorative poses such as this quiet the mind, allowing time to soak in the benefits of your practice and to transition gradually from this period of relaxation and meditation to the rest of your day or evening.
Regardless of whether you’re a beginner or a veteran yogi, you may be unsure of your home yoga routine when first going solo. Don’t worry—it doesn’t have to be perfect. “One of the biggest mistakes people make is always trying to get it right,” says Yee. “Yoga is a process, not a destination. Your body will tell you if it’s aligned properly when you listen to it. Never compete with anyone else, and remember that yoga should move you toward equanimity and ease.”
Victoria Freeman practices yoga at home to simplify her life. “Being able to find peace and serenity is a huge benefit that speaks to the heart of yoga,” she says. Freeman wrote a chapter in The Sports Nutrition Review, due out this year.
