Whether you’re new to yoga or returning to the mat after a break, here’s 7️ top ways you can give yourself the best chance at creating a yoga habit that sticks!
⚡ START SMALL
Shorter classes will be easier to integrate into your busy schedule and make it seem like a less daunting commitment
⚡ PLAN AHEAD
Prep your space. Book your classes in advance. You’ll be less likely to cancel if you have already made the commitment
⚡ VISUALISE YOURSELF DOING IT
If you can imagine yourself doing it, then you’ll be more likely to believe you can
⚡ TAG IT TO AN EXISTING HABIT
Yoga doesn’t need to be another thing on your list. Try mindful breathing on your commute or some gentle stretches whilst watching TV
⚡ BE CONSISTENT
Try practicing every day for a week and notice how it feels
⚡ DOCUMENT YOUR EXPERIENCE
Make a note of how you feel after your yoga practice and come back to it anytime you need a reminder as to why you love it so much!
⚡ REWARD YOURSELF
Show gratitude and compassion towards yourself for taking the time and making the commitment to your practice - congratulate yourself in the same way you would a friend.
Trust me, once you’ve found your habit, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without yoga!
