Many people are changing the way they think about exercise, especially gyms and group fitness classes. While some are opening back up, many people are still quarantined or practicing self-isolation. For those yoga practitioners who were regulars at the studio, this can be a big shift in both physical and mental health.
Fortunately, you don’t need much to practice yoga. (In fact, all you need is your breath!) Many studios are offering zoom classes and there are so many free, high-quality yoga tutorials and sessions online. Plan your next few weeks and get back on to your mat and into your practice with these online resources.

Cycle through these practices—and don’t feel obligated to follow them in this order. Yoga only works when you listen to your body. If your body is telling you that Tuesday is a warrior day and Wednesday is for balancing poses, be sure to listen. There is a reason your body is longing for a certain type of practice.
There are many sites online that offer free or donation-based videos and tutorials on yoga and meditation. Get out there and explore! Find a style that resonates with you and a teacher you feel comfortable with—even if only in a virtual practice.
