Setting aside some space

Creating a workout space for yoga with weights is easy enough, because you don't need very much space. If you have enough room to fit a yoga mat, you have plenty of space. Section off a corner of a room, a place on the deck, a few square feet in the backyard, or a few square feet on the roof, provided the roof of your house isn't slanted. Or you can keep it simple and create a special, sacred workout place in your home for exercising.

We believe strongly in the benefits of exercising outside if you can manage it. As long as you don't expose yourself to winds or unkind breezes, direct sunlight, or voyeuristic neighbors, the great outdoors is one of the best places for a yoga-with-weights workout. The fresh air adds to the benefits you get from yoga breathing, and you feel more free-spirited and thankful to be alive when you're in nature.

Yoga with weights is different from most exercise programs because it challenges your powers of concentration. In fact, some exercises test and develop your ability to focus more than they do your physical strength. Therefore, you should choose a place to exercise where distractions won't bother you. Not everyone can swing this, of course, but if you're fortunate enough to have a large house or a fenced-in backyard, see if you can devote an area to yoga-with-weights exercises. By establishing a place away from the rigors and demands of your daily life, you'll find it easier to concentrate on your exercises, deep breathing, and meditation. This special room or backyard space can be a source of resilience during difficult and demanding periods.

Keep your yoga mat, weights, and this book in your designated workout area (if your area is inside) so you can start exercising as soon as you set foot in it. You can keep this space simple or decorate it with fitness, yoga, meditation, or spa-style decor. Simple, bare, or elaborate — it's up to you. As soon as you set foot in your area, you should know you're there for one purpose — to work on yoga with weights. Knowing this helps you get into the exercise mindset. Think of your exercise space as a magic land or sanctuary where your health is the utmost concern. As soon as you step into the sanctuary, the exercises begin and nothing else concerns you.
