Creating a Sacred Space

It is important to practice in a space that feels relaxing to you. If practicing from home, put some energy into creating a sacred space.

  • Sanitize your space. Use cleaning products that are safe for your body.

  • Clear out clutter

  • Make sure your space is well ventilated

  • Candles are always relaxing. If you have allergies try soy candles, scentless candles, or candles with a subtle fragrance.

  • Place affirmations or other items that motivate you within this space.

  • A nice plant always softens things up.

  • Try to let your family know ahead of time that you are about to practice.

The most important thing is for you to feel comfortable in the space that you practice!
