    March 05, 2019 1 min read

    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.
