nayab baloch

it's perfect and i've used it for several times and i got benefits from it


Yoga Journal, I don't know how you do it.....the number of times I've thought about something yoga related, be it specifically targeted poses, diet, I was thinking about how I'll miss yoga as I'm meeting a friend at lunchtime whom I've not met for ages. I work various shifts so i can only fit in so many activities in daytime and yoga classes are to a timetable so I'm limited in how often i can go. So I thought maybe I should do something at home in the 45 minutes I have before needing to get ready to leave the house....when what should pop into my inbox but today's theme of home practice. So once again you've read my thoughts and the email of the day is totally relevant to today's conundrum! =) Thank you!


Also, the information was really great and helpful.


I alternate between and studio and home practice. Lately I have found the home practice to be more effective because of better concentration, less pressure to perform, and obviously more cost effective.

However, I being a social animal like all humans, I like the idea of going to the studio to meet new, interesting people, and talk with instructors for advice on particular poses.

Based on the information I provided, how do you choose if a home or studio practice is best. I would guess you would probably say both in my situation. Thanks.

I've been trying to work on my home practice for some time now. This helps.


Lovely article - I've sent this to my students as I'm off next week and want to encourge them to practice at home. At the end of the day yoga is about autonomy and freedom and giving people the ability to practice by themselves is key to teaching!


Hi, I am a yoga teacher and I am a reader of your site. I love this yoga journal. I would suggest you one thing if you let us know how to motivate people during the class, that would be great for me because students feel boring with yoga class so they don't continue their practice for long time. Please help me in this situation. Thanks


Thank you so much, this is a great article and a huge help.


What a great article! I've been practicing at home for almost 5 years and I wish I'd had this information the whole time. Every beginner - intermediate yogi should read this, save it and consciously incorporate these suggestions into their practice. Thank you!!!


Finally! A great article that was really helpful to a beginning yogini! I have just started my at home practice and I was greatly inspired by the information and have a better understanding as to how to decide what my daily practice should be! Thank you so much! Pam Campbell
