Yoga at home: here’s how to get started

With the closure of gyms imposed with new regulations to prevent infection with Covid-19, the virus that has been spreading in Italy and the rest of the world for about a year, many people have decided to Start exercising in your own home. Along with fitness, one of the disciplines that many people plan to start practicing is lo yoga.

Few tools will be needed to start practicing yoga:

  • a mat
  • a padded pillow
  • Of blocks and straps
  • comfortable clothing (which can consist of tops and shorts for women and t-shirts and comfortable shorts for men).

It is not necessary to have a huge space at home because a small space is sufficient, as long as it is quiet and allows you to concentrate. To practice yoga, in fact, it is especially important to carve out time for oneself, no interference from the outside world.

Remember that if we are already experienced then we can definitely do our own exercises at home, otherwise an instructor is what we need. In addition, if you want to do some physical activity also consider walks outdoors perhaps with our four-legged friend.

If, for example, you have young children, ideally someone should watch over them at that time (if possible). It is essential not to be distracted by smartphones and PCs and to free yourself from all daily tasks. As for how long to practice, it can range from 10 to 90 minutes and depends on how much time you have available.

For those who are just starting out, 20 minutes can be enough.

Once you have decided on the type of yoga you want to practice (from the more static to the more eventful or meditative), you can follow online tutorials or download yoga apps. Those who want can buy books on the subject to learn more about aspects such as practice, philosophy, breathing, nutrition, anatomy and more. A good student of yoga, in fact, always puts theory alongside practice and delves deeper into every aspect of it.

Once one starts practicing yoga, it becomes part of one&#8217s day with benefits in every aspect of one&#8217s life, from posture to relationships with others or at work.
