Guidelines for Practice
To ensure you have a pleasant, rewarding experience in the comfort of your home, here are a few tips:
Sign up for the classes that are suited to your level. You will soon have your favourites.
Find a quiet space away from the business of your household. This does not have to be a large space - just enough that you are able to roll out your mat.
Have props such as blocks, a strap, a blanket and a pillow handy to support your body so that it can unfold gently and perhaps deeper into your poses.
Yoga is best practiced on a light or empty stomach. Wait about two or three hours in between your meals and your practice.
Wear comfortable, clothing. Avoid tight body-hugging clothing that may restrict your movement.
Be gentle on your body and avoid postures that you are not ready for to avoid injury.
Be consistent with your practice. By making yoga a regular part of your self-care routine will help you stay healthy, calm and happier.
Benefits of Yoga
In Sanskrit, yoga means “union.” Through physical poses, breathing techniques and meditation, individuals practicing yoga work towards realizing a full union of their body, mind and soul.
Yoga is well know to relieve stress, increase flexibility, develop muscle strength, improve circulation, and sharpens concentration. Through a process of physical postures, breathing exercises, and meditation, you will find your body and mind letting go of stress and negativity. Feelings of peace and harmony will arise within you.
A regular yoga practice increases our sense of wellbeing, concentration and calm. Through practice and consistency, you can move away from negative physical or mental conditions, and healing can be achieved.
Accept and be gentle with yourself. Yoga is open to everyone at all levels. Do what you can do, without judgment.
