One of my yoga instructors told me once, there is nothing that an asana could not fix. This is so true! Yoga strengthens your body, slows you down to live in the moment, and gives you a sense of clarity when you may need it the most. When your day is packed with work, family, housework, errands and just life, it is still important to find time and balance your day with your yoga practice.
September is National Yoga Month (which should be every month in my opinion) and no better reminder to fit yoga into each and every day. Here are five simple ways you can fit yoga into your day:[bctt tweet="5 Simple Ways To Fit #Yoga Into Your Day"]
- Be prepared – I have my yoga mat, mat bag, and a change of clothes (top and pants) in my truck AND in my home office. No excuses! I can go to my local yoga studio or lay out my wrap in my home office or bonus room. Make sure you have a space in your home that is your own—doesn’t have to be a big space, just enough to lay out your mat, block, and towel!
- Do it in when you can – Sometimes it seems impossible to fit anything “extra” in your day. All you need is five or ten minutes for your yoga practice. Doing it in the morning when you get up, sets the precedent and an intention. Or, do it later to break up a hectic day. The best thing about yoga is that it is on your terms.

- Schedule your yoga practice – If you are like me, your life may be scheduled using the Cozi app or your Outlook calendar. Whatever you use, schedule in your yoga practice just like you would any other appointment.
- Pop in a DVD or stream a yoga class – The great thing about technology is that you can do yoga anywhere. If you are home, you can pop in a DVD. If you are on the road, stream a yoga class. You can get in a brief meditation or a full practice.
- Get your loved ones involved – As a mom of two active kids I sometimes feel bad when I take time away from my family. Invite your kids, your Mister, your parents into your yoga practice. My boys love stretching out their muscles after a game or practice. I think I have them hooked on yoga!
