Creating a Home/Travel Practice – Week 1

March 6th, 2023

Last week we spoke about how to warm up the spine. There are in fact 7-ways to stretch the spine. If you are looking for a short morning routine, it doesn’t get any simpler than this. You can do these movements standing, sitting, or lying down.

This Week’s Classes

(Las clases de esta semana)

This week we will continue expanding on our home/travel practice, building a basic routine that you can take anywhere. It’s important to make the routine simple. We are attempting to create a new habit. As you probably know, habits take time and patience to develop. It’s important not to get overwhelmed or down on yourself if you take some steps backward verses forward.

As we progress we will explore an additional basic routine called Sun Salutation. 80% of the any yoga class you attend will be based on this routine. In our class, you will explore the basic Sun Salutation routine. Finding your stride, pace, and becoming comfortable with the version that fits your body. This will help you become confident enough to walk into most yoga classes. You will not only understand how to move in your body, but also how to connect the breath with the movement.


This week’s homework is to take the first steps in finding a home/travel practice.  

Home Practice:

  • Look around your home and find a place that has enough space to layout a yoga mat.  
  • Bring your mat to this area and leave it.  Ideally the mat could remain lying out on the floor, but if not, rolled up as close to the space as possible.
  • Make the space special so you will want to spend time there.  
    • Flowers or a plant to take care of.
    • Candle or incense
    • Small items with meaning.
    • A firm cushion to sit.
  • Try and come to this area 2-3 times this week.  Without your phone.  Without the TV.  Sit and take a few slow deep breaths.
  • Practice stretching the spine 7 different ways.

Travel Practice:

  • Find a mat, rug, or towel that can be designated only for your yoga practice.  
  • Look for a flat spot to lay out your mat.
  • Make the moment special by finding a nice view and/or pick a few flowers from your day’s travel.
  • Try and find a flat spot 2-3 times this week.  Without your phone. Sit and take a few slow deep breaths.
  • Practice stretching the spine 7 different ways.
