Yoga is something all of us could benefit from thanks to the numerous mental and physical benefits this discipline offers. But how do you fit it in? At Kaya, we offer yoga and Pilates Prahran and we understand that it can be difficult to find time to incorporate your new yoga practice into your already packed schedule. Today, we’ll be sharing some of our tips for making yoga a part of your everyday life.
Start your day with yoga:
If you find you get to the end of the day and are just too tired to go along to classes, starting the day with yoga practice is a smart idea. This not only means you get your yoga practice in early, it also makes you calm and energised for the day ahead. Try getting into the habit of going along to an early class and see what a difference it makes to your day.
Practice your breathing:
An important part of yoga is practicing deep breathing techniques to calm the nervous system and promote mindfulness. Once you’ve gone along to some classes and your teacher has shown you how it’s done, try to practice your breathing throughout the day. It doesn’t have to take long – just five minutes at your desk can make a big difference!
Make yoga a priority:
If your yoga journey is important to you, you need to make it a priority. To avoid your yoga taking a back seat, set some goals and try to stick with them. For example, you could aim to attend two yoga classes each week. Remember that looking after yourself is important and yoga is a wonderful way to practice self-care.
Find a studio with a flexible schedule:
With work, a social life and everything in between, you need to find a yoga studio which offers class times which suit your lifestyle. Whether you want early morning classes, to drop by in your lunch break, or want after work sessions, finding a studio with a large selection of class times will make a big difference when it comes to fitting your yoga in.
Bring along a friend:
If you’re worried that you’ll lose momentum with your new yoga practice, one of the best things you can do is have a friend join you on your yoga journey. Not only is it more fun to have someone coming along to classes with you, it also makes you more accountable as you’re less likely to miss a class and leave your friend hanging!
