1. Keep a practice journal. A spiral-bound blank book is a great place for recording thoughts about your practice, even if some of your insights turn out to be less than cosmic. Use your notebook to make observations about the classes you are taking, too
2. Become an "artist". Not really, but draw a stick figure to remember a pose or summarize information or remember information about a specific posture.
3. Make Space at home. Try tocarve out a space that you can use and safely move in.
4. Define/Schedule your practice. What kind of practice to you want to practice do you want to explore? Gentle, Ashtanga, Vinyasa? How will you learn this practice -books, videos, or will you attend a class in studio or online a few times a month.
5. Hydrate, sleep, and consider your schedule before committing to an at home practice. Schedule a time that works best for you. Track your progress or if you were unable to practice that day make a note as to why? This will help identify roadblocks or barriers.
6. Consider equipment. What equipment do you need to practice safely? Do you have access to these items?
Most of all, be sure to listen to your body and practice safely.
