Here I would like to share a few tips and suggestions that may help working women in India lead a healthy life. For beginners who intend to regularly practice yoga, here are some simple tips and suggestions. They can help you practice yoga at home.
1. Allot a space
When you plan to practice yoga at home, a separate space needs to be allocated for the same. This helps avoid injuries and accidents. You may even customise this space to match the yoga needs.
2. Create the right ambience
Posters of yoga postures are ideal for the walls of this room. You may even burn incense sticks to have a serene ambience.
3. Invest on the right yoga yantras
While renovating your yoga room, make sure you invest on the right tools and accessories. You may purchase a mat for you to sit. You may invest on brooms and other accessories that will help you maintain the yoga room clean.

The right mood for yoga can be created by soft and melodious music. The music of the flute or harp may really be soothing and caressing.
