What a Home Yoga Practice Actually Looks Like. {Funny Video}

doing yoga by yourself

We’ve all been there when doing yoga at home by ourselves:

– 47,281 haphazard handstand attempts

– 289 extracurricular distractions

– 2-minutes of being totally zoned out

– 1 break for an un-yogic snack

– a completely half-assed Savasana

…and there we have a “complete” home yoga practice.

This probably isn’t what we learned to do in our teacher training, but it happens even to the most seasoned practitioners. Be forgiving with yourself and your practice and take it one day at a time.

Most importantly, have a sense of humor when you falter.

Perfection is a myth.

My name is Erin Motz and I’m the founder of Bad Yogi. We’re redefining yoga culture by removing the snobbery, pretense, and endless “prerequisites” it often takes to fit in with this community. We are yoga’s anti-clique and we believe yoga is for everyone, from the kale-loving vegan to the prize-winning deer hunter.
