Bad Yogi Home Yoga Flow Builder

Bad Yogi Home Yoga Flow Builder

If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me how to plan their own flow for yoga at homeโ€ฆ

Truth is, thereโ€™s rarely just one way of doing something, and this is no different. It all depends on your likes/dislikes, abilities and limitations, but I made this little sequence builder as a general guideline that Iโ€™d say is good to follow for anyone. You can use this to make a 10 minute flow or a 60 minute flow depending on what you’re in the mood for ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, it’s intentionally (somewhat) vague because I want you to feel free to be creative, to change things as you want and need to, and to serve as a reminder that your practice is exactly that: YOUR OWN. No one can tell you what poses are the “best” for your mood; you’re the gatekeeper to the class theme, so have fun with it ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy!

And shoutout to Tamera in Washington DC who inspired this post in particular!ย

  1. Thanks, this is very useful! Usually when I want to do a flow, I don’t know how to start and which poses to do. These are some great ‘guidelines’. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Can you make the poster/chart downloadable? It is hard to read (on my phone anyway – text is too small). Once i learn more poses and the correct way to fo them the information you provided will be so helpful in developing my own practice. Though I think I will miss your videos! Thanks for the post and thanks to Tamara in Washington D.C. for inspiring it!

  4. I’m in a YTT program, and for class on Saturday we have to write a beginner’s yoga sequence. This will be really helpful! My brain much prefers looking at categories and sub-categories versus a long list of possible poses. Thank you!!

  7. Awesome! I’d love to take my yoga outside (when it finally warms up along the mid-Atlantic here) and have been a little clueless about how to do it without a video. This will be immensely helpful. Thank you Erin!

  8. Thank you!This is very useful! Lisa, if you take 2 pics of the chart (1 top half; 1 bottom half) you can make it larger and more readable that way.:)

  10. Thank you! I am a teacher, and we have been working on goal setting with our students. As a result, I have very publicly posted a calendar that says, “Mrs. Fitz’s goal is to practice yoga at least 4 times a week.” With busy schedules, it has been hard to get to a class or practice with a video, but building my own to quickly do in the morning or before bed is perfect. So….THANKS! Now when 500 students ask me about my goal, I can say, “Yes indeed!”

  12. This is awesome! Thank you so much Erin! I have been dealing with a back/neck injury now for 6 months from a car accident, its been so stressful. I have been needing to take it really easy with my yoga practice. What you posted is going to be very helpful for me to take it easy and get my strength and flexibility back! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Thank you! My 6 and 10 year year old love doing yoga. This will help when they want to practice certain poses more than others and can make it flow for them instead of a choppy practice!

  20. Thank you, Erin! What a useful visual menu of choices to inspire a custom home practice! I can’t wait to try it out. On a technical note, I’d love to know what software you used to create the graphic.

  21. Love it! I wrote what I wanted to do following your break down, put a spotify playlist an did an hour flow on my own! That was great, now to improve, I will add more core work and try not to rely on so many asanas that use the wrists. I feel super motivated to do my own thing THANKS TO YOU <3

  23. Thank you, thank you for a basic guideline of movements to go on. I have long been trying to set up one, but lacking the education didn’t know really where to start or put the middle moves. This will help so much to give a base and to grow moves on!!
