The beauty of yoga is that it can be practiced anywhere and in all honesty all you need to practice is a clear space, you don't even need a mat, you can practice on a rug or directly to your wooden floorboards or on the grass outside in nature.
Where to create your space:
Choose a room or area in your home that’s free of distractions (or almost free), a space for me-time, clear yourself a little area that doesn't feel cluttered
If you have an outdoor space then take your practice outdoors
A flat surface however is key for balancing postures and to root down into the Earth
If you are practicing in the daytime a room with an abundance of natural light is wonderful
In the evening, dim the lights and feel free to light candles, have a blanket nearby and maybe an eye pillow
The use of scents can be so powerful to creating your space, from burning incense to diffusing essential oils - feel free to see the section about aromatherapy on this website as different oils can play a huge impact on our mood (I will write a post separately about this)
Play light music can hugely impact your mood, whether it's your own playlist or following a playlist by one of your teachers
If you are attending a meditation or sound healing classes, using headphones can be a wonderful way to really immerse you into the practice.
