For years before I opened the first dedicated yoga studio in Columbus, I practiced alone at home.
So here are some of the ground breaking tips we teach in the training to help get your home practice going. Make it fun! Yes, an eventual goal of yoga practice is pratyahara (withdrawal of the mind from the senses).

Have a few props handy. You can buy a couple of foam yoga blocks at your studio (often), on the internet, or even where you shop for groceries! Of course, for safety and best results, it helps to have some basic knowledge of the poses you will be practicing (perhaps gained in class, from a video, or from a teacher one-on-one).
