Yoga for beginners at home: tips and recommendations

To make your yoga classes at home or comfortable and effective for you, we offer you some tips on how to start practicing at home.

Get a yoga mat. A moderately thick but not too thin version is good for beginners. Also, various supports, such as yoga blocks, straps, bolsters or plaids can be a good help for your yoga practice.
Decide on the time that you can devote to your yoga practice at home. Preferably, it should be a time when you are alone at home, or when, if possible, no one would disturb you. It is better to do exercises in the morning in the early hours, before breakfast, and try to do the evening practice at least an hour before going to bed and two to three hours after a meal. You can devote from 15 minutes to 2 hours of your time to the practice, depending on your capabilities.
Do yoga regularly, preferably at least three times a week. If you are able to devote 1.5-2 hours of free time to the practice, then the best option for practicing yoga for beginners at home would be classes with an interval of one or two days. In case if you can spare only 15-30 minutes for yoga practice, then it is recommended to do it every day. Of course, when you practice at a yoga studio, you have more discipline, because you attend classes on certain days of the week, at the same time, while at home there is a high probability to r

Find a place at home where you can place your yoga mat. This should be a well-ventilated and must be a clean room. Keep the room at a comfortable temperature: it should be neither too hot and stuffy, nor too cold.
Clothes for yoga practice at home should be comfortable and loose, but the main requirement is that they should not constrain your movements.
Make sure that no one disturbs you during the practice, turn off your cell phone or turn it on silent mode.
If you don’t want to practice in silence, you can be accompanied by calm meditative music, mantras, recordings of Tibetan bowls and sounds of nature. The main thing is that the music should not distract you from your practice and interfere with your concentration on the practice.
