Your lazy but you want that fit body! Good old fashioned yoga is easier to get into than you might think. It’s not all headstands and contortionist stuff, you don’t have to practice in a 100 degree room and, no, you don’t have to be flexible to begin with. Flexibility comes in time and yes, even you can get into yoga. Here is a helpful guide even lazy people can follow on how yoga can get you fit, healthy and inspired, even if you’re feeling a tad bit lazy.
Try Meditation before Yoga
If you’re not energetically ready for physical yoga poses, try meditating first. Quieting your thoughts for a short period of time every day helps everything fall into place. Still the mind, sit with your feelings, and get used to a routine. Physical poses (aka “asanas”) can come later on.
Take a Yoga Class
Not really a DIY kind of person? Check out local studios, gyms, community centers and take one beginner class. Just show up and give it a chance. Even the laziest among us can get to one yoga class—come on.
You Tube is loaded with easy, free yoga classes and tutorials. Search for “gentle”, “beginner” and even “yin” yoga. Try several videos and see what sticks—it’s easy, and you don’t have to commit to anything. Just click “play” and see how it goes.
Sun salutations are the foundation of a good, solid yoga practice. Dedicate 10-15 minutes a day to these easy movements; they become more fluid in time. I swear that after 10 minutes of sun salutations, I feel ready for almost anything!
Yoga in Bed
That’s right, stay in bed a bit longer. Poses such as reclined twists, forward folds and butterflies can be done with ease while sitting in bed. Google “seated yoga poses” for more ideas, and give it a whirl.
Practice Transcendental Meditation twice a day for 20 minutes. I find this goal far more attainable than sitting for one 40 minute session. Breaking anything down into chunks can help establish new, healthy habits. For example, try 15-10 minutes of yoga in the morning, then another 15-20 minutes in the evening.
Finally, stop thinking of yoga as an item on your never-ending list of errands. Look at what you can do for yourself with just a little investment everyday, you can lower blood pressure, improve your complexion, build a stronger immune system, and attain better posture. Yoga fixes so many ailments, both physical and mental. Change up your view, and get a little yoga in your life, just stop being lazy. You can do it.
