Yoga At Home
There are many ways to stay healthy and well during this time but one of the best for your mind, body, and soul is Yoga. When it comes to exercise it can be hard to start.
They say it takes 21 days to create a new habit in your life. So over the next twenty-one days, you MUST do something every day towards your new goal.
A great resource to get started is Badass Habits: Cultivate the Awareness, Boundaries, and Daily Upgrades You Need to Make Them Stick by Jen Sincero.
If you do the daily exercises in this book you WILL see the results you are after whatever habit you choose to add or change.
This post is all about Yoga At Home Essentials.
Boho Beautiful Yoga At Home
So if you are serious about starting to flow with an at-home yoga practice one of the best resources is Boho Beautiful. You can follow the youtube videos or join the membership. Do what works best for you but make to decision to start and stick to it.
When you exercise daily for yourself and the health benefits that is when you will finally stick to a routine. If you are just doing it for your next vacation, to get that date, to impress someone else or because the summer is coming YOU WILL NOT stick with it.
You have to get yourself to a place where you love yourself enough to set aside 15-20 minutes (to start) each day to workout just because it feels good.
Trust me that is the game changer.
Also, keep in mind that it’s 80 percent diet and 20 percent exercise so if you don’t change both it will not be as effective.
Here is a 14-day yoga routine you can start on youtube right now from your home.
There is also a 14-day Meditation practice that will help you stay the course. If you have never meditated be patient with yourself and give it time. It will feel weird and woo woo at first but it will change your life if you stick with it every day. You will get in tune with your thoughts and creativity. Another benefit is learning to stay in the present moment and just be.
Try it and let me know how it went after the 15 days are complete. There is an extra bonus meditation day.
If you love the program you can make the commitment to yourself and sign up for the app and monthly subscription. This is not even an affiliate post BTW that is how much I LOVE Boho Beautiful and all they stand for. They truly have changed my life and I am forever grateful for what Juliana and Mark have created.

Best Crystals: Healing Crystal Necklace
Keep your energy protected by wearing a crystal around your neck. Our favorite right now is the rose quartz for self-love.
1. Yoga Mat
Dedicate your next practice to this durable, high-performance yoga mat. Sustainably sourced from Vietnamese rubber trees and Portuguese cork farms, its cushiony top layer supports hands and joints throughout every pose. The mat’s nonslip material also delivers serious traction the wetter it gets, making it ideal for sweaty sessions. Cork is naturally antimicrobial and provides a self-cleaning surface that reduces grime and odor. Lightweight and travel-ready–hello, shoulder strap–this mat helps keep you grounded, focused, and in the moment.
This is a must-have for any practice. I have found that it is important to purchase a nonslip mat especially when you are doing harder poses. Having stability underneath you is key to your yoga success.
2. Mat Towel
This ultralight, incredibly compact towel is poised to replace your cotton or microfiber version. Made of nanofiber, with threads even thinner than microfiber ones, the fabric absorbs 2.3 times its weight in moisture without the bulky, nappy surface of other towel textiles. An anti-microbial coating thwarts bacteria and lasts through repeated washings. The vented silicone carry case has a carabiner clip for attaching to your bag, or to the towel itself for near-instant hang drying.
While I do not tend to sweat during my practice many do, especially if they are doing hot yoga or pilates. My son used to do this during the wrestling season to drop the extra pounds of water weight and a towel was definitely a necessity.
3. Water Bottle
Combine the benefits of crystal with the mind blowing properties of normal water. Water charged with crystals enables your body cells to integrate the positive energy easily on a cellular & vibration level.
Having the crystal inside your water bottle during your yoga practice will be a constant reminder to love yourself because that is the meaning of this crystal.
4. Yoga Blocks
MANTRA: I WILL NOT SPILL MY WATER.
You’re on your mat, soaking up the serenity of an early-morning yoga class. As you tip forward toward half-moon pose, the sacred silence of the studio is shattered by a loud clanking and the glug glug glug of your water bottle, tipping over and spilling. Your cheeks slowly flood with color. If only your water bottle could balance as well as you do.
Well, this one does. The Balance Bottle is a removable vessel that fits inside its foam yoga block. When you want a sip during class, just twist off the top and drink right from your block (it easily slides out for to-go use outside of the studio, too). The sturdy block will protect your bottle from spills and help you reach the right angles for your asanas….without driving your teacher bananas.
This is by far one of my favorites here! I mean how awesome is it to have a water bottle AND yoga block all in one. Way less to carry if you are going to class and perfect for the unexpected difficult poses that you may need a little extra support to achieve.
5. Yoga Ambiance
You go to yoga to align your chakras, and the spa to pamper the day away. But how do you keep the positive vibes flowing once you get home? Try these palo santo sticks that have a subtle, sweet scent like a blend of citrus and mint. Considered sacred in some South American cultures, palo santo is often used in space cleansing rituals. To use it, light the end of the wood until it’s burning like a match, place it in the fire-resistant ceramic tray, and allow the smoke to fill your space with a delightful, calming aroma. It also makes a thoughtful gift for a friend who practices meditation or simply loves enchanting scents.
Set the mood for your practice by activating all your senses including the sense of smell. By setting the ambiance of you practice it will elevate you to a higher place.
6. Yoga Inspiration
Print Yoga Room Decoration Buddhist Prints Wall Pictures for Home Decor Buddha Art Print Poster Home Decor Wall Art 8x10inch no frame
So often we hold onto resentment and anger from the past when we truly just need to let that shit go. Realizing that I can ONLY change myself has been a game-changer in my life and helped me let go of the need to control. Definitely a work in progress but something I am aware of on a daily basis.
7. Meditation Pillow
“Om my goodness, this is comfortable,” you think as you settle into lotus on your recycled sari meditation pillow. You close your eyes, but before you can clear your mind, you can’t help but think about kantha, the ancient Bengali hand-stitching technique used to create each unique pillow. You give silent thanks to the women who created these pillows; each was a victim of human trafficking who is now free to earn her own living creating beautiful, traditional objects. Finally, you breathe deeply, in and out, drifting into a peaceful meditation.
These meditation pillows are bright and happy which will help you get into that zen zone as you meditate. Before my yoga practice, I meditate and then journal. Doing both has really helped keep my creative juices flowing and set my intentions for the day.
8. Healing Crystals
Calling all independent ladies: Satya Scainetti’s powerful crystals have your back. Choose the stone that speaks to you, whether that’s onyx (representing perseverance), rose quartz (a classic symbol of love), or aventurine (a pretty green number that stands for balance). When you’re feeling stressed, wear it as a reminder of what makes you strong. It’s a little like a pick-me-up strung on a gold-plated brass chain.
Wearing crystals around your neck is a constant reminder to breathe and protect your energy at all costs. This is something I have been working on.
This will help create a calm peaceful environment to flow during your practice.
10. Essential Oil Set
Essential oils are perfect for diffuser, humidifier, freshener, massage, bath, skin and hair care, or adding into lotion and shampoo.
Inspired by the California lifestyle, this yoga mat is made from recycled neoprene wetsuits. We love a sustainable design that helps protect our environment.
Crafted from 100% natural salt this is a great way to add good energy in your yoga studio at home.
13. Yoga Mat Cleaner
Show your yoga mat some love. Asutra’s Yoga Mat Detox allows you to clean and refresh your mats and props with no slippery residue.
Use this pot stand for your favorite plant. Perfect to add in the corner of your workout space.
This essential oil decoration is perfect for your Yoga or Meditation Room.

25. The Towel
We love the fun print in this trendy yoga towel.
Also remember your breath will help you get through those challenging poses.
Recover and treat your sore muscles with these recovery balls.
Set the vibe of your space with zen inspiration. The translation reads “Namaste: I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of love, light, peace and joy. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one.”.
This yoga-inspired candle reveals a meditating cast iron sculpture as the wax around it melts away.
30. Yoga Bolster
Round cotton bolsters provide perfect support for many yoga postures. You will find that they are firm to provide full support, yet soft enough to be quite comfortable.
This strap will help you increase your flexibility as you stretch so you can get further each day.
Have a great night full of Unicorns and Rainbows.
