I mentioned a couple months ago that I decided not to renew my gym membership when my year contract was up. Instead, I wanted to save some money (more for travel, yay!) and try some alternative workouts at home. My latest home workout venture? Yoga.
I’m not talking the crazy, intense poses (because I’m far from being at that stage). But I’m amazed by the people who can do them! The stretching poses are more my speed at this moment in time.
To help me get started on my at-home yoga journey, I’ve been using the Yoga Sequencing Deck, which features 100 cards with different yoga poses from beginner to advanced levels, for creating at-home or class-building practices.
I’ve enjoyed yoga classes I’ve taken in studios, but often found that we were spending a lot of time on poses that I didn’t care much for (*cough* downward dog for like 10 minutes *cough*), so I love that this deck offers so many different options for you to craft your own practice, based on skill level or target areas you want to focus on. Plus, you can utilize them to create your yoga practice for as long or as short as you want!
Below are a few of my most-used cards in the deck. They’re great stretching ones, which are super helpful to do in general, or before starting any other workout (e.g. walking, running, strength training).
Do you yoga? What are your favorite poses?
