Somedays, Home Is Where Your Mat Is

Nothing can replace the energy and experience of taking a yoga class with a knowledgable and inspiring instructor. But, for those days when you can’t make it out, or just need a little dose to hold you over, a home practice can be just the thing. If you have a game plan and some idea of what you want/need to do, you can just get on the mat and let it flow. More often than not though, we all still need a little guidance, which is where the magic of the world wide web comes in handy. Yoga International, the online publication of the Himalayan Institute (where I received my 500-hour RYT certification) offers a cornicopia of classes in a wide range of difficulty, focus, and length. Got 15 minutes and tight shoulders? They got you covered. Need an energizing vinyasa practice and have a (gasp!) whole hour? Check. Want to compliment your asana practice with some pranayama, meditation, or just read up on, say, the Five Vayus? Yep. YI’s wonderful site can actually be overwhelming with all the information and wisdom they have to offer, but luckily it is organized beautifully and you can save practices and articles to your queue (just like Netflix! And how many hours have you spent perusing their online directory?) Best of all (after a rediculous patenting scuffle with a certain other online yoga site) it’s 100% FREE! So… you no longer have an excuse. Get on your mat (or, get a mat if you don’t have one) and do something, anything. Just remember, a little yoga a lot of times is better than a lot of yoga once in a while (and way better than no yoga at all). Just practice… all is coming.
