Yoga at home offers a rejuvenating way to achieve inner peace and holistic well-being. In this blog, we will explore the incredible benefits of practicing yoga at home, guiding you through a transformative journey toward a healthier mind, body, and spirit.
How to do Yoga at home
Our aim at Inspire Yoga is to give you the confidence to create a self-practice, where you can start your day by rolling out a yoga mat in the comfort of your own home and have the know-how of what you need, a gentle stretch, an energizing workout or a calming practice, all depending on the day and being mindful to what your body is asking for.
Most of the time we push our body and let our mind be in charge of what needs to take place, yoga is the time of listening to what the body needs, to understand where the areas of tension and stiffness are and how to systematically and compassionately release the areas that are feeling stuck, so you enjoy a greater freedom of movement and an increased vitality. Many of our clients have practiced yoga at home with a private instructor to get to this point where they feel self-sufficient in practicing on their own and truly listening to their body, this is what yoga is in its essence- it’s the confluence of body, mind, and breath, being so present with yourself that all the stress melts away.
To get started, email email@example.com, and we will set up a free consultation for you. Our classes are held in the comfort of your home or office and scheduled around your availability. The consultation helps us to understand your needs and objectives so we can curate a program that is personalized to you for you to benefit the most from each class and see the progress from a consistent practice. We will select an expert yoga teacher to host your classes personally, their qualifications and experience will match your requirements so you can rest assured you are in the best-trained hands to support your journey. It’s also important to us that you enjoy your program, which is why the personality of the instructor is also considered in the selection process, being able to have a good rapport and have the classes take place in a friendly manner will ensure you look forward to each class.
Starting with private classes will require you to find a place in your home, be it your living room, study or room that you can come back to each class, also having a set schedule will really help to build a long-lasting habit. Find a time and a place that you can commit to and set aside for yourself. Your teacher may assign you a couple of minutes of yoga to do on your own each day, rather than homework, treat it as time for self-care, this will create a healthy routine as you slowly build your own self-practice.
We all know yoga is great for us, not only for our physical health, but more and more research is pointing to the benefits yoga has on our mental health. Taking that first step to get started can feel daunting for a beginner, if you have never practiced yoga before entering a studio can feel intimidating trying to keep up with people who are ultra-flexible. That’s why we suggest private classes, let us meet you where you are, you will gain more awareness of your movements and how the postures should feel in your body, be guided by a teacher you trust, work through any tension with expert attention and understand what style of yoga is best suited for you, then you will feel more comfortable practicing in a group or even on your own.
4 REASONS TO START YOGA AT HOME
We have serviced hundreds of clients in Hong Kong and understand everyone gets started with yoga for a different reason, for some it’s because it’s been recommended by their partner or doctor, for others it’s because the feel tight and stiff and for others it’s to create an environment of bonding within the family and set aside time for self-care. Here are the top reasons we have heard from our clients as to why they got started
- You are brand new to yoga
Most of our clients have never practiced yoga before, they have heard of its benefits and have decided it’s time to try it out for themselves. They opt for private yoga classes as home because it makes the task of starting something new less daunting, no busy classes, no eyes on you as your figure out the different postures, no feeling embarrassed if you are struggling with flexibility. We offer an exclusive service where an expert yoga teacher personally teaches you in the comfort, convenience, and privacy of your own home. The one-on-one classes mean that your classes are step-by-step so you can follow the sequences at a pace that you are comfortable with.
- You are recovering from an injury/surgery
Many surgeons, cardiologists, GPs and orthopedic doctors have recommended our services to their clients as the one-to-one step up means that we can safely and gently guide their practice, providing variations and support if anything feels uncomfortable. Private classes at home can easily incorporate yoga therapy for those who suffer from chronic pain or have areas that are recovering. After back surgery, hip replacement or a torn ACL, we can aid in the rehabilitation process in healing through movement to reduce scar tissue and slowly adding load on the joints to build muscle and protect the area.
- You are very stressed
A personalized yoga program in the comfort of your home includes many relaxation techniques, where movements are focused around mindfulness. Many psychologists and counsellors recommend yoga for its calming benefits, especially if you are suffering from anxiety or sleeping disorders and don’t want to become dependent on medication. Yoga is an alternative solution, we offer customized classes held in the privacy of your home and scheduled around your convenience so that you feel supported and cared for. The practice also conditions you to feel more relaxed in your home so can treat it as an oasis to release stress and unwind.
- You are pregnant/going through a time of transition
Prenatal and postnatal classes are one of our most popular, going through a big change requires support, especially when that change affects your body, mind, hormones and mood. We understand the variations of each trimester and sculpt the program around what you are currently going through, everyone experiences change differently which is why the at home personalized practice allows you to be heard, felt understood and be guided to feel stronger, more confident and embrace the journey of change. No need to rush around the city to get to a class on time, our expert teachers will be at your doorstep ready to teach you exactly when it suits you.
