According to a 2014 study, a 'home practice of yoga predicted health better than years of practice or class frequency'.
YogaHara at Home
YogaHara at Home (YAH) is your one stop home yoga practice program.
It is specifically tailored for people wanting to establish, or maintain a simple, nourishing home yoga practice. The thing about practicing at home is that you can do what you want, at your own pace, for as long as you like. There is a greater opportunity for deepening your understanding of yourself and the way you are in the world.
YAH will provide you with the tools to begin or to support your own daily practice. The practices are real, accessible and easily adapted to your needs. There will be a couple of longer practices but most are around 10-20 minutes and the advantage is that you can do as much or as little as you like depending on what you are realistically able to put aside in your day.
Why Practice Yoga at Home
According to a 2014 study, a 'home practice of yoga predicted health better than years of practice or class frequency'. 'Researchers at the University of Maryland and the National Institutes of Health found that those yoga students who practiced at home reported more positive mindfulness, subjective well-being, BMI, fruit and vegetable consumption, vegetarian status, sleep, and fatigue.'
"If you are taking yoga classes but not practicing at home, you may be missing the best—and potentially most therapeutic—part of yoga. Your personal practice is where the deepest work happens, when you go inward and go at your own pace."—Timothy McCall from Yoga As Medicine
In my experience, a home yoga practice is the foundation of my day. It is where I explore how I am each day - body, emotions, mind - where I set my intentions and where I spend a few moments with myself checking in. It has been the difference between having an exercise program and a Yoga practice.
How Does YAH Work
Most of the practices are short 10-20 minutes practices that you can easily do first thing in the morning, when you get home from work, or before bed. There is a variety of practices including asana, meditation, pranayama, relaxation and talks, plus there are also a few longer practices for those days when you have a bit more time. They are simple and achievable. All the classes and offerings will be via live videos through a private, secret Facebook group. As long as you have access to Facebook, you will be able to logon and follow along from wherever you are. The videos are recorded by me (Gina), live on my phone, the quality is pretty good (technology is amazing) but keep in mind they are not professional videos. Just me, sharing what I love, in the most cost effective and easiest way I can.
You can watch the classes live, or later. Over time our catalogue of classes and practices will begin to grow, widening your options and choices.
YogaHara will add at least one new class every week. You can watch that class live as it is recorded or watch it at any time in the future, as many times as you like.

"I used the YAH subscription to establish a morning practice, which I’ve done ... the program was fantastic for this – both to help a night owl become a bit more morning oriented in my own home (ie the YAH meant I could tune in when and where I wanted to), and also to have a dedicated practice that was perfect for what I wanted to do (the cup of tea meditation)." -- Dannielle
"The whole family is loving YogaHara at home. I have been choosing a practice for the week and find repeating it allows a deeper practice as the week progresses. This week is a combination of 3 shorter practices. Vinyasa, sun salutes and a balance. The Balance one is amazing. Leading in slowly. No wonder my tree used to topple over as I was like a bull at a gate." -- Sandy
"Gina, Just wanted you to know that I love YogaHara@Home. Whilst I also love your classes, my life sometimes makes attending a bit erratic but with YogaHara@Home, you're always there supporting me in the privacy of my home. It really does feel like I'm in a class with you leading. With the variety of themes, there's always a perfect one to suit my day. With love." -- Larrie
