How to Begin a Home Yoga Practice
It took me years to develop a home yoga practice. I craved more of what I felt after savasana at a studio class, but my Type A mind often stopped me from rolling out my mat at home:
What's my plan?
How long do I have?
Am I doing this right?
What was that sequence the teacher led us through last week?
I don't have the right music.
I don't have enough time.
I don't know what comes first or next or last.
If I couldn't do it "perfectly," it seemed, then it wasn't worth doing it at all.
Luckily, I've learned that, like so many of my perfectionist tendencies, that's simply a lie. Read my five tips to help even the most Type A aspiring yogi begin a home practice.
