Hands up if you've been saying you wanted to start doing yoga for longer than you can count. Lack of time, too many commitments, fear of making a complete fool of yourself, fear that you're as flexible as a two-by-four, laziness – all kinds of excuses and worries factor in, but you can win the struggle. We'll do it together, because my hand would be in the air if I wasn't typing. You just need a few yoga hacks and you'll be practicing your Downward Dog even if you only have five minutes to spare every day.
1. Locale Doesn't Matter
Some days you don't even have time to match your socks, so how can you get to the gym? You've got work, school, errands, chores, relationships, housework, cooking, kids, pets ... When your responsibilities eat up your time, it's easy to put off your desire to try yoga by saying that you don't have the time to take a class. The truth is that you don't need to go to the gym or a yoga studio, even if you're a beginner. You just need YouTube or a great DVD!
