Mukha Yoga l Setting Up a Home Yoga Practice

I have heard countless times, “I wish I were disciplined enough to practice at home.” To which I reply, “unroll your yoga mat, start there.” REALLY! Place your mat in view and intentionally create space for practice to be a possibility. Second, move intuitively, use your practice to get to know YOU. Much like meditation, many people get hung up on needing their home practice to be perfect, rather than needing it to be real. Keep it simple, set a timer for 20 minutes, put on music if you’d like, move your body and breathe.

Below are a few poses to incorporate into your morning and evening practices. The intention of the morning postures is to ground and awaken; the intention of the evening postures is to slow down and prepare for rest. Use these postures as a foundation to build upon.

MORNING - GROUNDING DOWN AND AWAKENING  
Seated Meditation - set an intention for the day
Child’s Pose with Side Body Stretches
Downward Dog
Crescent (Low) Lunges
Standing Posture - Warrior 2 and/or Extended Side Angle
Balancing Posture - Tree Pose
Boat Pose
Bridge Pose
Supine Twists
Savasana


EVENING - SLOWING DOWN AND RECEIVING
Seated Meditation - practice gratitude for the day
Child’s Pose
Cat/Cow
Sphinx Pose
Figure 4 on your back (Supine Pigeon)
Supported Bridge
Waterfall
Savasana
