Starting Your Yoga Practice At Home

The easiest way to develop a sustainable practice is with patience, acknowledging that your body changes very single day, therefore coming to your mat without expectations. You need to understand your body’s needs and work within your boundaries – knowing when to push and when to hold back approaching your practice with acceptance of whatever is showing up on your mat each day and respecting your body by moving it mindfully.

A home yoga practice has lots of benefits and is a great complement to other forms of exercise such as running, cycling or surfing, or a studio practice. Setting up a regular routine will enable you to commit to an ongoing, dedicated practice and if you’ve not done yoga before, it will allow you to get familiar with the sequences and start to understand your body. You can build confidence and progress comfortably at your own pace.

Here are a few tips to ensure success:

  • Try and set up a regular routine – practice at the same time or days of the week to get into the flow.
  • Give yourself plenty of space, set your mat up and have all of your props at hand.
  • Make sure you allow enough time to complete the class and that you won’t be interrupted so you can really enjoy the full experience.
  • Make sure you’ve not eaten just before your class. You should have at least 2-3 hours break after food before practicing. If you are doing a morning class, it is best to do it on an empty stomach.
  • Follow a class online where teachers will guide you through the basic alignment of the key postures. It’s important to follow the cues and understand how each pose works so as not to cause injury. Power Living’s Online Yoga is a website where you can watch yoga classes from the comfort of your own home – the site includes ‘Yoga Tips’ and ‘Basics’ classes so you can get to grips with the foundations of yoga before moving on to some of the more advanced classes.
  • Mix it up with a range of styles or classes to keep it fresh and inspiring!
  • And remember to have fun! It doesn’t matter if you don’t get it all at first. Keep practicing and the more you do, the more familiar you’ll become.

For more information and to get started, Modern Yoga by Duncan Peak offers an introduction to the foundations, philosophies and origins of Power Living’s yoga, or classes can be found online with Power Living’s Online Yoga.
