Find a Fitness Buddy
Once life gets crazy and busy — and it always does — it can be easy to fall behind on your yoga classes or practicing yoga poses. You can combat this by having a friend you plan to meet at the yoga studio!
Give It Time
You’re not going to be in the splits right away (or maybe ever). And that’s OK! Stick with your schedule, making adjustments as needed, so that your body and mind can both adjust to your new habit.
Join a Yoga Studio
By having a physical location to go to — instead of just the TV in your living room — you will be more committed. Especially as a beginner yogi, this is important so you can develop your practice safely and confidently.
Make a Schedule
Have you ever heard the saying “a goal not written down is just a wish”? It’s applicable to yoga classes as well! If you don’t plan ahead and schedule time for yoga exercises, then it’s simply not going to happen. When trying to make a habit, we recommend first thing in the morning or on your way home from work.
Take Online Yoga Classes
Whether a yoga studio isn’t accessible or you simply have a hankering for yoga late on a Tuesday night, online yoga classes can come to the rescue!
Track Your Progress
Whether you take pictures of yourself in different poses to see differences or you track how many yoga classes you take, you’ll feel more excited when you can see your progress! Yoga for beginners is a great place to start.
Try a Variety of Yoga Classes
There will be days when you want restorative yoga and days when you want hot yoga. Honor your body! Try many types of yoga and find what’s right for you. By trying a variety, you’ll keep your practice engaging instead of repetitive.
