Stretch, Don’t Strain -
Cultivating A Home Yoga Practice
We all need support and guidance in creating a new habit. For it to be effective, a home yoga meditation practice doesn't need to be an hour long. As one master put it, it's better to do a short practice with some consistency, than to do a long practice inconsistently. Experience two 20-minute practices - a daytime practice to motivate, and an evening practice for better sleep. Experience your home practice as something you want to do, a refuge, a haven of healing & strength.
• Set a timer for 15 mins before the workshop begins to allow time to sign in.
• Set up a yoga mat (or on a firm carpet) and any props you would like to use (for example, blankets, a bolster, a chair if you use one.)
• If possible, set up your camera so that your whole body and mat can be seen in the frame during the practices, ideally whether seated, standing, or lying down. If that is not possible, no worries.
• If you do not wish to be seen during the practices, you can keep your camera off.
