4 Tricks for Taking Your Yoga Routine to The Next Level 

 

Are you ready for a boost in your yoga practice? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Deepening your knowledge of yoga and your ability to practice poses requires time and patience, but having a few handy yogi tricks can’t hurt either. So before you step onto the mat for your next session, be sure to keep these helpful tips in mind to make the most of your yoga practice. 

 

Pick Up Some Gear to Boost Your Practice 

 

If you want to benefit even more from your yoga practice, having some key pieces of equipment may help you do so. If you find yourself slipping all over your yoga mat during class, investing in a non-slip yoga towel could be a wise move as well (check out Yoga Outlet for deals). These handy towels can be less expensive than replacing your mat altogether, plus the extra grip can take your practice to the next level. Many yoga practitioners find that props like blocks and straps can allow them to go deeper into their poses and get more out of their routine.

 

Practice Some Poses Before Your Breakfast 

 

To truly reap the rewards of a full yoga practice, you also need to familiarize yourself with other elements of yoga, including Ayurveda. Seasoned yogis know that stimulating your digestive processes before having breakfast, or any other meal, can provide more of an energy and health boost than practicing yoga after a big meal. Now, if you’re getting anxious just thinking about taking an hour-long yoga class on an empty stomach, you should know that completing a short sequence as soon as you get out of bed can do the trick as well. In addition to aiding your digestion, getting in a few downward dogs and pigeons at the beginning of your morning can also help you get better sleep at night and maybe even drink less coffee throughout the day.    

 

Create a Home Practice That Challenges You 

 

To get the most benefits from yoga, you should really consider establishing a home practice, where you can take your time and really perfect those poses. You can start with the short morning routine mentioned above, but if you want to get better, you also have to be willing to push yourself. For some fun motivation, find a space in your home that you can dedicate to your practice and make it into your very own yoga and meditation space. Eliminate any negative energy by decluttering, discarding broken items, letting in light, and burning some sage incense. Make sure this space is free from distractions, like pets or electronics, but also make sure you can keep your phone handy. You can use your phone to follow along with online yoga classes from Cambio Yoga that will push you to deepen your current poses and maybe even try some new ones, but just be mindful of not overdoing it

 

Sign Yourself Up for New Classes or Instruction Training 

 

If you’re going to the same hot yoga class each week, why not try changing it up to really challenge yourself? For example, you could find a yin yoga class, where you will get deep into active poses for much longer than you’re used to, and ultimately find deeper stretches throughout your body. These deep stretches can have a calming effect on your mind and body, but they can be difficult to master solo, so look for guidance from an experienced yoga instructor. If you’ve already taken every type of class, mastered your home practice, and still want more yoga in your life, think about becoming a yoga instructor yourself! You can work your way through a 200- or 500-hour program to do so, and whether you choose to teach or not, your practice and life are bound to be improved by the end. 

 

Like anything else in life, enhancing your yoga practice takes, well, practice. So commit the time to building a daily routine, be willing to get out of your comfort zone, and give yourself the extra tools you need, so that you can get the most out of your yoga practice!
