Practicing Yoga At Home
You’ve put on your stretchy pants and laid out your mat, but before you attempt a full yoga sequence, you need to properly prepare.
“The best thing you can do before you start a home yoga practice is attend some yoga classes with a certified instructor,” says Sarah Bolen, a Halifax-based yoga instructor and host of Coral TV’s Surviving Yoga. “Get the basics from a teacher that you get to interact with one-on-one. That way you can feel comfortable with yoga and your body before you start at home.”
It’s also important to do some research. “Make sure you equip yourself,” says Bolen. “There are a ton of amazing resources online, like YouTube videos and yoga sites, that will help you figure out what you need.”
