Yoga. It’s great for the body, and for the mind. And the beauty of yoga is that anyone can do it. It’s not about being good at something; it’s about being good to yourself.
There’s truly very little equipment needed to practice yoga, but a mat and a towel are a good place to start. Or, maybe a towel that attaches to your mat like the ones by NamaSTAY. These towels hug your mat so that when you are practicing Power Vinyasa (hot) Yoga, your towel stays flat, freeing your mind from distractions like bunched up towels and allowing you to concentrate on your scorpion pose.
Some people prefer to do their practice in the privacy of their own home, and on their own time table. Luckily, there are plenty of yoga apps out there like Pocket Yoga and Yoga Studio - that will give you ideas on how to get started and keep going. Yogify gives you 35 sessions for free before giving you the option to choose from a collection of five class programs ranging in difficulty from level 1-3.
And, websites like doyogawithme.com offer hundreds of FREE videos with a variety of instructors, from beginner to advanced and everything in between. Good karma all around, as they say!
