While you’re spending time at home, yoga is great way to relax but also to stay fit and healthy. The great thing with yoga in 2020 is you can do classes in your own home with ease.
All you need is a space and either a Smart TV, tablet or laptop, heck even a smart phone would do the trick. Slip into something comfy you can stretch in, like leggings, or shorts and a t-shirt or sports top. If you happen to have a yoga mat do use that, alternatively yoga can be done on a floor or rug.
