Learning Beginner Yoga Exercises

  • Sharebar

There are many kinds of yoga exercises, all which seem to have derived from the original eight stages of reaching a state of bliss. Breathing techniques and different poses ensures good health through Hatha yoga, which is the most popular form of yoga practiced.

No fancy or expensive equipment is needed to practice yoga exercises. All you need is to bring yourself with a positive attitude. Your clothing needs to be comfortable and relaxing. Simply wear some loose fitting, non-restrictive clothing.

You do not have to join a yoga class as any quiet spot in your house is perfectly fine to practice yoga. Make sure that you have no interuptions, the area is quiet and is environmently comfortable.  A soft mat may be handy together with a blanket and a pillow which will help give you some form of support and added comfort for the laying or sitting down positions. Yoga is normally practiced barefoot, so you don’t need any expensive shoes though you may wish to wear some socks or soft shoes.

Try not to eat a heavy meal for at least two or three hours before doing any yoga exercises. You do not want to have a full feeling as you are moving through the exercises. You can eat some fruit or an energy bar and drink a glass of juice an hour or so before doing yoga. Drink plenty of water as you perform your yoga exercises as you will tend to get dehydrated.

Many people like to practice yoga first thing in the morning as it helps to revitalise the mind and body using the postures and breathing techniques. Some yoga practitioners prefer to exercise at night to help relieve the stress from a busy day. It is perfectly fine to do both. You just have to find the time that best suits you for yoga.

Basic yoga poses always start with easy poses, building up to the more difficult poses. Never strain yourself, and pause when you feel pain or fatigue. Relaxing in between difficult exercises is also considered to be beneficial.

Yoga is best done daily. You can do as little as 15 minutes of fitness exercise and 15 minutes of breathing and meditation each day and you will start to reap the benefits.
