Yoga is an amazing way to de-stress, unclutter your mind, achieve emotional peace, rid yourself of pain, and get healthier. However, it can be hard to find the time to make it to class, and it can be a pain to fight through traffic to get to it. This coupled with the fact that you can find tons of great guides and videos online to help you DIY makes doing yoga at home a good choice for many. Here’s what you need to get started!
The right space is critical. It doesn’t have to be a big space, but it does have to be clean, uncluttered, and promote quiet, calm, and serenity. It should also have enough space for you to move around comfortably and perform your poses, as well as a neat and organized section to store your equipment.
1. Get the Right Equipment
This includes all the basics, like your mat, a strap, some blocks, even bolsters and blankets. Everything you need to be comfortable and do your best.
Good goals and a time frame that works for you can help you improve more quickly and alleviate any stress. A good start is taking 1-2 60 minutes yogabellies classes a week and then 10-15 per day self-practice.
2. Listen Closely to the Instructions
The good news is that yogabellies teachers have trained for a minimum of 250 hours in yoga just for women, so you are dealing with sepcialists in womens yoga. YogaBelliesLive classes are interactive too, just like an in person class, and they are easy for you to understand, and clearly depict what you’re supposed to do. Any problems? Just ask during class!
3.Start With the Basics.
Doing yoga at home without an instructor to correct any mistakes you may be making is much different than being in your yogabellies class. Start with a yogabellies teacher from the beginning, ensure that you’re doing the poses correctly, and move forward into adding in a solo home practice when you’re ready. Our youtube channel yogabelliestv offers some great mini practices you can add in inbetween classes.
4. Tips for Staying Motivated
When you’re in class it’s easy to stay motivated – you make friends that you look forward to seeing on certain days, even when you may not feel like actually doing the yoga. YogaBelliesLIVE online classes are exactly the same
With the right equipment, the right guidance, and the right attitude, keeping up your yogabellies practice from home is easy.

I’m an inclusive, not scary, totally normal yet heavily qualified yoga instructor and founder of YogaBellies® and the Birth ROCKS Method. I’m trained in self hypnosis and meditation and what I love is helping women (ALL women) enjoy yoga without having to whisper all the time and wear fancy activewear that cost a month’s rent.
I believe Yoga is for everyone.
