Yogis seven

how to include yoga in your daily life

1. Begin with acceptance - accepting yourself, your body as a perfectly assembled instrument, your mind as a helper, and your soul as a pure perfect self. You are already on the right path, the path is only yours alone, try to accept everything as it is and enjoy every tiny step forward. Do not push it forward, the body will open gradually, in positions where you do not have enough range, use props - a yoga belt, block and mat will be your best friend.

2. Forget expectations – detach your mind from clinging to achieving goals. For whatever reason you start yoga, let the process flow, what yoga is supposed to bring you, it will bring you even without expectations. That way you can fully concentrate on the present moment.

3. Understand the core of yoga – yoga is not just exercise, actually exercise is a really tiny part of it. Yoga is life. How you perceive your surroundings, how you perceive yourself, how you breathe, how you think, how you don't think, how you are. You can practice it in any activity. Yoga is not practiced, yoga is lived.

4. Be aware of your breath - breath is absolutely fundamental in yoga. Breath is your omnipresent tool and great helper. With the help of proper breathing, the body heals and forms, and the mind gradually learns how to slow down the incessant stream of thoughts. Create your own yoga corner at home, where you feel really good and safe. You can buy a talisman in the form of a statuette or mineral stone, a yoga pillow, or simply roll out a mat and light a candle. Include breathing exercises in your daily practice. Take time during the day for at least a few minutes, visit your safe place and observe how life itself flows through the body.

5. Be aware of the comfort of peace - today's busy time has a great influence on our perception. One activity passes into another without the possibility to process its impact. The feeling of lack of time weighs on us like a boulder. Enjoying peace and doing nothing is often impossible. Work on it, create a space in your life that will reward you with its infinity.

6. Try performing the basic yoga poses - the correct performance of the poses is very important. You can start, for example, with the sun salutation (the most famous and common yoga flow, Surya Namaskar), which contains 11 positions. Take a look at our article, where you will learn more about the positions. Study variations for beginners. Still at a loss? Ask us! Write to us on Instagram @yoggys_yogamats or to e-mail info@yoggys.cz :)

7. Find lessons for beginners - you already have an idea about the theory of basic positions, now it's time for the actual practice. Practicing with a teacher will strengthen your foundations, you will find out where you are making mistakes, you will broaden your horizons to include other asanas, and you can better focus on your own practice. 20 minutes every day or every other day will give you much more than an hour once a week.

What yoga equipment do you need?

A mat, strap, block or yoga wheel?

If you really want to devote yourself to yoga, is worth it to invest in quality yoga equipment.

The functional yoga mat will ensure comfort for your joints and spine, and thanks to its non-slip surface, it will keep your limbs in the right position.

A yoga block (brick) is a perfect tool not only for beginners. It can be used in many ways. It will serve as a support for your sit bones and a support for your hands or feet in positions where you don't have enough range yet.

A yoga strap is ideal for deepening your stretching practice. You can use it as your extended hand or as a tool for correct body alignment in asanas.

A yoga wheel or yoga wheel is a great tool for deepening the practice. As difficult as a yoga wheel may seem to a beginner, the opposite is true. The wheel will become your support during bends and bows.

The meditation pillow will help you to properly align your spine during meditation or longer sitting. You can also use it in restorative positions, where you can use the yoga bolster even better. If you have ever tasted the perfect relaxation of your body during Shavasana (the final relaxation position of every yoga class), with a bolster you can deepen this feeling of relaxation even more.
