As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, you may be spending more time outside — and less time in the yoga studio.
So how do you keep up your yoga practice in the summer? Here are a few tips:
1 – Take Classes at Different Times (or on Different Days)
If you want to be outside in the evenings, consider a morning yoga class – we have classes starting as early as 6 a.m. If you’re busy in the mornings, think about a mid-afternoon or evening class. We have classes 7 days a week, which means there are usually at least a few that will work with your schedule. See our full class schedule.
2 – Practice with Your Partner, Your Kids or a Friend
Summer is a great time to reconnect with your family and friends, especially if their schedules are more flexible in the summer.
3 – Smaller Classes = More Time to Explore
Our classes are typically a bit smaller during the summer, which means it’s even easier to connect with your yoga teacher, ask questions and grow your practice. Whether you want to work on your tree pose, try side crow or practice your handstand, now is the perfect time!
4 – Think About How You’ll Feel This Fall
When you come to class throughout the spring and summer — even a few times a week — you’ll keep getting stronger and more flexible. You’ve worked hard to get where you are. Keep it going and you’ll be glad you did a few months from now.
5 – Practice at Home with Online MBFY Classes
Now there are two ways to practice anytime, anywhere:
6 – Remember to Make Time for Yourself
Summer is filled with picnics and road trips, vacations and reunions. But don’t forget about making time for yourself. When you’re on your mat, that’s your time to let it all go, recharge, and get the energy you need to keep up with your life and schedule.
