The Yoga Deck
My first pick for doing yoga at home is of course The Yoga Deck – my very own yoga resource comprising of 41 yoga pose cards and 16 sample sequences. The Yoga Deck is compact enough you can take it in your handbag or gym bag, or leave on your bedside table.
If you want something in the technology space, the internet is full of awesome yoga videos – you can choose to do a full practice with them (ranging from 10 minutes to over an hour) or look up specific poses for tips on how to safely get in and out of them.
My favourite You Tube channels are;
I’ve ‘subscribed’ to all of these and just pick and choose through them each week.
Most videos sequences will say whether they are beginners or advanced. Look to see how many minutes they run for to see what you’re in for once you click play!
Online Beginners Course
My favourite FREE beginners course is the Beginners Starter Yoga Kit from doyouyoga.com – it’s a full 30 days of videos to get you going.
