Join the TC Fit team as we feature September Yoga classes and workout from “Om.” Yoga offers a mental and physical reset for our bodies. The practice of yoga can be modified to a variety of fitness levels and is a great option for people returning to exercise or those of us needing a movement break during our workday. With regular practice yoga can help increase our stamina, strength, and flexibility.
Yoga: Safety first when exercising from home!
Start slowly and progress sensibly. If you have underlying health conditions consult your physician before starting any new workout routine.
Create an open area in your home. The space should allow you to extend your arms and legs in every direction and allow you to step both forward and backward.
Exercise on a non-slip surface. Use a yoga mat or non-slip slipper socks for yoga. Wear athletic shoes when completing traditional or high-intensity exercises.
Many yoga and workout routines can be completed using only your body weight. Or keep a yoga block, bolster, or yoga strap nearby for assisting poses and stretches.
Check out this TC Fit resource page for additional home exercise props and equipment purchase suggestions.
