With the little strip of carpet between my bedroom wall and the end of my bed, I began my home yoga practice guided by YouTube videos and the reflection of myself in the floor-to-ceiling mirror of my closet. At first, I watched myself in the mirror as I moved through the poses because I wanted to make sure I was ‘doing it right.’ I wanted to perfect my poses so they could look as graceful as my yoga instructor on YouTube.
