Throughout my journey with yoga I’ve met so many people who say something like ”Oh you practice yoga? However, it does not need to be too difficult. So if you are wondering about ‘What do I need to start yoga at home?’, all you need to do is to pick a space and start practicing.
I’d love to start but…(insert a multitude of reasons)” such as:
- I’m too tired all the time
- I don’t have time
- I’m too busy
- I’m not flexible enough
- I don’t have a place to do it
- I can’t afford classes.
What do I need to start yoga at home?
What do I say to these folks? Don’t think about it, just start doing it! The more time you spend thinking about all the reasons you can’t or don’t want to practice, the more likely you’ll convince yourself not to practice. Start and enjoy the ride.
The first thing that you need to do is to create a yoga space so that you can have a dedicated space where you can practice. Setting up the space need not be difficult and costly. This space can be your uncluttered and distraction free refuge in the yoga journey.
So next time you have reservations about starting or continuing a yoga practice — just start!
And for those who can’t afford classes, practicing at home with a DVD is a very affordable way to learn and maintain a yoga practice.
