As Nelly said, "it's getting hot in here"... or should we say it's getting hot out there! Summer is rapidly approaching and alongside your summer vacation plans and cookouts, yoga may be a priority for you. Here are some tips for FREE yoga all summer long!
Home Practice: There's nothing like a home practice. You can practice at any time, with minimal propping, in any discipline, and for any length of time. Your home practice is FREE, and I like to pull some poses together that I like the most or want to work on and add a short meditation at the beginning and end. Great way to start or reset your day especially if you have little ones at home and do not have time to get to a studio.
YouTube: There are a lot of great videos and teachers on YouTube. My advice just like at a studio is to try a few teachers to see who fits. You can also search for a style of yoga or even an intention and work from there. And starting June 5, you can practice with ME (yes, me!) 5 days a week on YouTube. Just search for Valerie Kacian Yoga on YouTube, and let's practice together.
Eventbrite: Looking for a FREE outdoor class in your area? Maybe a community class in a cool studio? Check out Eventbrite and search for "free yoga" or "community yoga" and check out what may be happening near you.
Community/Library Calendar: Many community centers and libraries offer free yoga options for both adults and kids. Check out your local calendar to see what may be offered in your area.
Low Cost Options: Summer is a great time to SAVE on class passes at many studios. Grab a summer membership at a studio or fitness center and enjoy yoga and perhaps some other perks.
However you get your yoga this summer enjoy a moment to yourself to refresh your day and refocus. It's a perfect time of year for an outdoor practice or a cozy indoor practice. Those of you with children can join me on this blog or on YouTube for tips, idea, and a practice just for you!
