Yoga at Home: local classes go live!

Free live-streamed classes to get started. #bowerartathome

The best way to start a home yoga practice is to Do Yoga. Begin by setting up a quiet space at home where you have some room to spread out, and gather props that can help make some poses more accessible. Spend a little time preparing your space, keeping it organized, a place you will be encouraged to visit. Be realistic about your home practice schedule. What time of day works best for you? Can you follow an online class or video, or begin building a yoga library with books by different teachers? Maybe make a commitment to practice 10 minutes a day? The important thing is to Do Yoga. Just get on your mat and move around for five minutes and see what feels good, or perhaps just sit quietly. Start listening to your body, and let it lead the way. Renowned yoga teacher Cyndi Lee suggests, "My advice is to just get started and see what happens. Let the whole thing unfold. If you have access to teachers and group yoga classes, make sure to start with a class just for yoga beginners. That is going to set you up for a positive experience. The path is the practice."

Our Body and Soul yoga practices have moved online during this time of social distancing.  Join Ellen Mackey (at Ellen A. Mackey, Yoga Teacher) and Mitchell Bond (at Home Yoga Practice Resources) on Facebook for the following live-streamed classes offered throughout the week. If you can't make it live, the recordings are saved to come back to later.

Is practicing yoga at home safe and a good fit for you?
