Doing some spring cleaning??? Brush off your yoga mat.

Getting your Groove Back

Are you new to yoga?  Or do you just need a refresher. Yoga can be challenging for a beginner and a challange to get back too. This article will help ease your transition into or back into the world of yoga.

Find a good space to practice in.  You do not need a whole lot of space to prcatice yoga.  For my personal practice I like to change it up a bit, the sunny front window when my gang has gone off for school is one place I like.  In the spring I love to roll my mat out where my bulbs are blooming in the yard.  The smell of things just popping up is so wonderful.

Purchase a quality sticky mat. You can find them all over the place, I have several. When I started teaching yoga, mats became the go to gift for many that wanted to support my endeavor. I have a whole bunch of fancy ones but I really like my old cat scrached glitter stuck kinda dirty bubble gum pink mat.  I have had it for ever and it is a good friend to me.  When its looking a little loved on I just toss it in the washer on the gentle cycle with a couple of towels pull it out before the the rest of the laundry hits the dryer.

Take breaks to focus on your breathing.

Get a good night’s sleep.

Shut out negativity.

While much of yoga can be intimidating, it’s easier to master than it may seem. I hope these tips will help get you started or restarted on your journey into the world of yoga.
