Deciding to sign up for a yoga class is one thing, but sticking with it on a regular basis is another. If you need a little help with getting yourself off the couch and into the yoga studio every week, you might want to consider the following tips. After all, you'll only be able to improve health if you actually practice yoga often.
Find a friend
You may discover it's more fun and easier to motivate yourself when you have a friend accompanying you to class every time. This can become a standing after-work date for you to help each other through the beginner's stages while also making it easier to meet new people in your studio.
Shop around with studios
Don't just enroll at the first yoga studio you find – it's often best to shop around for one that's right for you. There are a variety of different yoga styles, and you may even find that certain instructors are more friendly or in-tune with your needs than others.
Practice during non-busy hours
With work, school and family obligations potentially distracting you from your yoga sessions, you should try to arrange a class that fits into the non-busy hours of your schedule. Often, going to yoga right before or after work will prevent things like class projects or dinner plans from getting in your way. This is a great way to improve health outcomes.
