Whether you are a budding yogi or a professional who can pretzel yourself into the most advanced poses, you know your body feels great after yoga class. Your muscles relax, the soreness dissipates, and your mind is finally calm.
Practicing yoga at home is great — in theory. But it can be hard to be disciplined enough to do it regularly. You may skip warming up, shorten the duration of the poses, or avoid the more complex movements, preventing yourself from getting the full benefit of the experience.
