Everything you need to practice yoga at home

yoga at home

This article will take you through the steps of how to practice yoga at home. We’ll show you everything you need, including the best online classes, songs, and gear. This article will help you to practice yoga at home, no matter how many times you do it.

What equipment is needed to do yoga at home?

You really only need a small space. These are all good investments:

  • Manduka/Liforme and Jade are the top organic mats on the market. They ship internationally.
  • A cushion is a great accessory for sitting, reclining meditation and classes that require you to sit more.
  • Blocks (Buckets and Straps) – Everybody is different, so straps and blocks can be helpful in gaining better access.
  • For practicing Aerial Yoga, it is advisable to invest in the best yoga swing equipment.
  • If you are looking to do a guided online routine or practice with music, a small speaker is the best option.

Where is the best place to do yoga at home?

Make sure your space is clear of clutter and other distractions. A candle, palo Santo, or incense can help you create a feeling of calm. You will find that you can create a mood with incense, palo santo, or a candle every day. This will allow you to accumulate energy which will be beneficial for you.

Which style of yoga works best at home?

You don’t have to pick a particular style for your home practice. Just assess what you need that day. Are you looking for something to do after a hard week of exercise? To relieve fatigue from a nine-to-five week of sitting at the computer and looking at screens; to calm anxiety; or to lift your spirits and not resort to caffeine. You can choose your favourite items from several styles, or you can use an app or class online to guide you.


Yoga types explained:

  • Rocket, Dynamic Vinyasa, and Ashtanga all have high energy flows. They include arm balancing moves and back curls.
  • Jivamukti: He is fluent in English and takes a different approach to each month’s philosophical or ethical questions.
  • Kundalini: This meditation, mantras and chanting, as well as breathing, movement, and meditation, is designed to increase specific mental energy.
  • Iyengar – This method focuses on form and alignment and uses many accessories. It is great for injury rehabilitation.
  • In Sanskrit, Hatha is the umbrella term for all yoga practices. However, in Western countries it usually refers to a more gentle, accessible flow class.
  • Yin: Targeting deep connective tissue between muscles in long-lasting poses (upto 10 minutes), to increase circulation and calm down.

How long do you have to spend?

The next thing you need to think about is the timing. Many yoga teachers will tell you that no effort is wasted, regardless of how long it takes. Online classes offer a variety of routines that range in length from 10-minutes to 90 minutes. For yoga, set an alarm for 10 minutes before the session ends so that you know when you should start your closing sequence. The time it takes to get your coffee brewed can also be a factor in how much practice you do. It’s flexible in all aspects.

What music is best for yoga?

It’s about connecting the rhythm and the breath. If you are making your own playlists, I recommend Dj Drez, Beautiful Chorus, Deya Dva and Nada Sadhana. Or, you can search my playlists on Spotify under Irene del Valle, and pick one of them.
