3) Create a Zen Space
One thing that’s great about yoga studios is their airy, bright, totally Zen atmosphere. They can completely transport you away from dirty dishes, laundry and electronics. That said, practicing yoga at home can be even more special, because you can really personalize your own space.
“I think creating a space is the most important way to ensure you’ll be successful in your home yoga practice,” says Bolen.
The key to continuing yoga at home? “Lay your mat out and make sure you leave it out,” says Bolen. “If you leave it out, every time you walk by, you’ll be reminded to do yoga.”
She also recommends choosing a space with no distractions: “no TV, no bed, no clutter.”
The fun part? “You can make it more beautiful as you go along, with candles and pillows and things like that,” she says.
