Yoga has been adopted by the masses and it has become one of the most popular fitness related activities around the globe and especially in the United States.
Because of this it’s no surprise that many people would have related their new year’s resolutions to yoga, and that 2019 is likely to be the year when more people attend a yoga class than ever before.
With January already gone in a flash, this blog post will look at three quick ways you can improve your yoga practice this year, and ensure that you’re still attending classes come 2020.
When it comes to yoga, there really isn’t too much you have to worry about. However, there are still a number of factors that can enhance your practice, including:
Investing in the right yoga equipment
Yoga doesn’t require a whole gym full of equipment, but there are some necessities that will enhance your experience. Some of the basic requirements include a yoga mat, a towel and comfortable clothing. A good mat or yoga towel, particularly of the non-slip variety is needed to ensure a stable base.
Equipment such as mats and blocks can also aid comfort, especially if you have only recently taken up yoga.
Make your yoga practice a habit
It might sound like a perfect idea to rise early in order to get your yoga practice in at 5am every morning, but just how easy is it going to be to sustain this over a long period of time?
In order to practice yoga frequently it is important to make it a habit and not a chore, be realistic about schedule and gradually increase the amount of yoga you do each week. Maybe start with one class a week and increase it slowly if you have the time to do so.
It is also crucial to practice at a time, and within an environment that suits you best, which is why finding a class you enjoy is vitally important.
Remind yourself of the benefits of yoga
There are just so many benefits of yoga that it is important to remember them next time you aren’t quite feeling motivated enough to attend your regular class.
