What is yoga?

Yoga at home

Yoga is a really good workout to do at home, the only thing you need is a yoga mat and possibly a pillow or rolled up blanket. For those who are interested, there are also lots of yoga accessories on the market. An example is yoga blocks to provide extra stability and height for different positions. Another popular accessory is a so-called bolster, which is a type of pillow that provides support and enhanced stretch.

So make it cozy, turn off the lights, maybe light some candles and put on some calm music to get in the mood and join in with these yoga exercises that you can do at home in the living room.
