Favorite Tips for Keeping Your Practice

buddha-753016__180

We know that we feel wonderful after we complete our postures, breathing and meditations. So why is it that we still need incentive for making our yoga practice a habit?

Here are some of my tried and true recommendations that may help you return to your home practice again and again:

  1. Make it enjoyable – enhance your space with flowers or candles
  2. Find your inner teacher – listen to your body and select poses that speak to you
  3. KISS – keep it simple (silly) – pick only a few postures for each session
  4. Get assistance – besides classes, texts and audio recordings make good encouragement tools
  5. Set a timer – begin with 10 minutes/day then slowly add time as your practice develops
  6. Use music – this sets a mood and can add a soothing quality
  7. Practice with a friend – once in a while make a pact to meet and share ideas
