Step 2. Find Your Where
Now is the time to find out where you are going to do start yoga at home. Do you have a room in mind? Is it a space that will be dedicated specifically to yoga or is it a multi-purpose space? Will your home yoga equipment stay out or will it be put away?
Of course, this can change. In our last apartment, we were fortunate enough to be able to dedicate a whole room to yoga (we did this by not having a living room and instead used our kitchen dining room as our living room. Definitely this may not be for everyone but for us, this was a perfect choice because yoga and meditation is our passion. Now we have moved and have dedicated a space in our living room with a nice view out into the garden.
Get creative, we have been living and staying in the smallest of 1 bedroom setups and have been able to create a yoga space even if it meant moving some furniture around every day for yoga practice, you will be surprised with what you can come up with. Now is a good time to check in that the monkey mind isn't finding excuses as to why you can't do yoga at home 🐵.

Step 3. Find Your When
What time of day will you do yoga? Will you practice asana in the morning, afternoon or evening? Before breakfast?
Find a time that will be easy to implement and be realistic. It's always best to start with something doable and celebrating your success rather than setting yourself up for failure.
For us, we love to do yoga and meditation first thing in the morning before breakfast on an empty stomach. This way we start the day feeling fresh, empowered and ready for anything and everything.
