5 tips to start your yoga practice. Start with sun salutations: This is an easy way to add a yoga ritual to your day-to-day life. “Sun salutations A and B can help to build your general breath awareness and flexibility, and can also help you drop into the mental flow of doing a little bit of yoga,” says Julie. As you start your journey, what you get out of the practice can also change based on your needs. Takeaway Practicing yoga can help with body awareness, flexibility, strength, mobility, and balance.

4. Define your practice. The practice routine you create depends a good deal on you. Define the time you have available for practice, the technique you would like to focus on, and the balance among meditation, breathing, and asana practices. Then consider the details. Are you clear about the order of your practice and the methods you are using?

And it certainly can’t offer the state of peace that yoga brings to your life. So please – don’t let the upside down yogis (like the picture below) of the world, intimidate you from starting a yoga practice. I BEG YOU! This post will be simple and straightforward, with the ultimate goal of helping you to start a home yoga practice. Enjoy the challenge of working on new sequences and improving with every yoga practice you do! #1.

Pick Your Type of Yoga Yes, there is more than one type of yoga! In fact, there are lots of different types. What type you choose really depends on the studios you have in your area or what you want to get out of your practice.

by: Meagan McCrary & Mary Jo Cameron Fighting traffic to make it to class on time, remembering to bring your yoga gear, carving out a space for your mat amid the after-work studio crowds: Yoga can sometimes be a less than Zen-like experience. Starting a home yoga practice can ultimately save time, energy, and money. Starting a new yoga practice is as exciting as it is nerve-racking.

Get answers to all your beginner yoga FAQs so you can feel confident, prepared, and inspired to explore your practice. Learn about yoga basics with expert tips + advice to help you start your practice on the right foot. Learn basic yoga poses and sequences for the beginner, and develop a foundation to understand yoga traditions and philosophy. Let your students know that a vigorous yoga practice is a great way to work towards weight loss but as always, it needs to be paired with healthy eating. You may also want to encourage your students to combine a regular yoga practice with an activity like running, brisk walking or treadmill/elliptical workouts.

Whether you want to learn to slow down, breathe deeply, or just strengthen your mind-body connection, starting a yoga practice can help. Maybe you’ve heard of the amazing health benefits of yoga. Yoga can lower your blood pressure, help you lose weight, kill stress, regulate your metabolism, increase your flexibility, improve your sleep, and.

    3 sequencing workshops a year.
    Includes pranayama for respiratory, Asanas for therapeutic health and the deeper side of yoga movement.

  • Thanks for this, I’ve been wanting to try yoga for years and you’re right it’s scary / off putting to go for the first time. I’ve put it off so many times! Now i’d like to go but thanks for mentioning restorative yoga, as I have a spine twist that I was born with, that now is causing some pain issues so that would be great for me I think:) Thanks for giving me a heads up on what to expect and what to look for etc I feel more at ease now.

  • Awesome message Mr. Rosen! I agree with your “Do not argue among ourselves.” Sharing our story is the most powerful tool we have to help others see that recovery is possible. I’m coming up on my 25th anniversary of sobriety. The 12 Steps have been at the core of my new life. That doesn’t mean I have no respect for other paths. I try to incorporate other techniques/methods that will help me improve my life in recovery. One of my favorite quotes of all time…”When the student is ready the teacher appears.” That’s been my experience in all areas of my life. Look forward to future videos!

  • I super adore yoga and I want to grow my understanding and strengthen my practice. I have only been doing yoga for about a year and a half now, what are a few milestones you suggest achieving before taking classes to be a yoga instructor?

  • Please, please, please, include more of these advanced poses in your future videos! I have improved so much since i started doing yoga with you and now it’s like I’m addicted. Thank you, both, for creating this beautiful community. Much love for you!

  • Hello!! I just did this practice and I found it amazing. I am not advanced but I wanted to challenge myself!! I can’t wait to see all the other videos. I just wonder how long it will take before being able to follow the whole practice!! Thank you!! Hugs and love from Italy!

  • Tommy, I went on A YOGA RETREAT with you and Kia 4 years ago. I was 6 months sober. Im still smoking ugh. i started smoking in recovery. I love your book. I love your outlook. I love the way the steps got you sober but the frequency was still there. It is really amazing that you put yourself out there for this explanation which i think is so true and authentic. I have sought out healers at huge cost to my pocketbook and my health. I thank you for unsolicited explanation. Please put me back on the list for the next yoga retreat. I won’t be smoking then. Thank you. The universe has a plan. I must question more but explore.

  • Whoo!! I’ve done this video a few times and it’s really helped me. The first time I struggled to do bird of paradise, but now not only did I do bird of paradise, I actually stopped the video a few times to incorporate some of the harder poses, like flying pidgeon and the split legged variation of side crow!

  • I feel like you taught me more than my 200 hour TT and the 500 HR TT I am currently in, when it comes to sequencing. Fantastic thanks!:)

  • Hi! I love your videos and have learned more about teaching. How can we access the 10 step PDF your holding? I can’t wait to use it as a worksheet.

  • I like this! Best video I have seen on this subject. You have a clear strong spirit and your intentions seem honest. I’m searching for good guidance offering different ways to sequence classes mostly to help people sequence practices for themselves. I’m going to keep this tabbed to share.

    I love helping people guide their own practices. I made this video below with five themes to stay aware of internally while you navigate a practice.

    I hope you will check it out.

  • as a beginner, this was really useful to understand the classes I’m following, and I’m inspired to work on sequencing for myself, that would be really fun! please do provide a guide to poses / variations of idea within each step, so we could pick and choose and play around with sequencing:) thank you!
    also please could you let me know what yoga mat you use / recommend, a video on this would be super useful if possible:)

  • Years ago I arrived at an AA meeting about 5 minutes after the start time. The door was locked. I could see the attendees sitting in there, and couldn’t understand how they could lock someone out of a meeting that wanted to attend. I mean it’s not like anyone is gonna come barreling into an AA meeting and disrupt the whole thing. I’m not saying it couldn’t happen, but it seems to me that is a risk that needs to be taken if you are trying to help every person you can. I have noticed this “cliquish” behavior at several AA meetings. That one incident completely turned me off to AA (well not just that incident, but it was the straw that broke the camel’s back).

  • Thank you for your video. I appreciated the explanation about the sound. I feel that is an issue I have in my channel KayaBalaTherapeuticYoga. I started it few months ago and is doing ok but growing very slowly. I am placing classes there in English and in Spanish weekly. it is pretty hard to see videos of your self teaching and realizing your mistakes lol but is a great learning tool. teach teach teach and record your self so you can see what others see and hear. Sometimes I don’t know how my students understand my cues hahaha. Augusta

  • Hi Bret, thank you so much for this video. I am currently in training for yoga teacher but due this mad times, we had to postpone most of our classes in the studio. While I am waiting for my online class, I decided to film myself during this quarantine and start my own YouTube channel. Your tips are encouraging and very helpful. Namaste, Barbara

  • Loved this. Your videos flow so well with the right amount of explanation so we can actually do the yoga rather than pausing. Also your closer looks are very thoughtful. Thank you

  • Thank u so much for posting this video Tommy. I’ve been so blessed by finding you and Recovery 2.0. I’ve been trying to get sober since 2015…it’s been rough.

  • Thank you so much Ashley-I am beginning my journey as a yoga instructor and found your video extraordinarily helpful! I’m so much more at ease now about making the classes I’m teaching flow properly, and having the class build to a peak. You’re wonderful!

  • Please don’t do Padam Asana(only for females). It will give you problems related to child birth.It’s not good for women’s who wants to become mother.

  • You just gave us a perfect skeleton for a yoga class, this is so helpful!! My yoga teacher training should have including a simple explanation like this. Just getting back into it after focusing on other things for a couple years. Thank you:)

  • This is hands down the most beneficial recovery video I’ve seen, and I’ve been watching you for years. Words are spells….thank you so much for tackling language �� Also, thank you for addressing the challenge of being a woman in these groups….I’ve had terrible experiences with men in AA…..I shaved my head and stopped wearing makeup to try to deflect unwanted attention. I haven’t found the courage to go back yet….

  • I’ve done this most days for a few months now. I can’t do a headstand or a proper bird of paradise but each time I am a tiny bit closer. I always feel wonderful having done it and it my absolute favourite practice. Thank you so much xx

  • I practice yoga at home and this was the most valuable 25 minutes of my life!! One question you didn’t talk much about lead up to peak pose. Some more clarity and description on this element would be great!

  • Nice explanation. I wasn’t expecting to have to pay for the 3-page sequencing template though. lol My theory is: you offer something small for free and then you get customers. LOL
    Also, the “….Yoga-Sequencing-Infographic_v5.jpg” link is dead.
    Thanks again!

  • Hello! I am new to your channel. Could you please give me a piece of advice? How can I improve the “bird of paradise” posture? I can stand up and keep my knee bent, but when i try to extend it, i loose balance. I manage to stay up only for 5 seconds. Perhaps i have to improve my splits. What do you saggest?

  • Im still working on that handstand but I’m getting there, I like the extra instruction on those more difficult and advanced poses

    great video

  • This is such a great video. I recovered from that seemingly hopeless state of mind and body but I have a hard time with polarizers in our followership. I have been blessed with thirty years of sobriety, of which about 17 years have been very disciplined in my 12 step practice. I never became a thumper, and I have heard and seen the fellowship both mirror the fellowship of the spirit or dress apathy up as some spiritual virtue.
    I, fell into a category I like to believe I held all by myself was,
    Intolerant of the intolerant
    After further development I saw that I became that which I held contempt for previously.
    I have studied so many other modalities ad well. This tells me that my way is not THE way.
    Thank you

  • Step 1 was not something I did. Step 1 was something that happened to me. “ We stood at the turning point, we asked his protection and care with COMPLETE abandon”. This experience of total surrender, and practicing the other eleven steps is the reason why I have been sober almost 25 years. See you on the road to happy destiny!

  • It is amazingly helpful, thank you! Especially considering the fact that I had a yoga instructor course in 2017, where they didn’t even mention how to build up a class…. we learned one fix sequence but NOTHING about modifications or about variations… so frustrating, I’m trying to educate myself now. It’s so wonderful you are here and sharing your knowledge!! Love and hugs, Vera

  • Wow I was doing this flow one year ago when I started Yoga and couldn´t do anything of it. Today I´m so proud to say that I was so good at it. I love to see how much I improved! Thank you so much Juliana and Mark!

  • Ma’am this great contribution I can never forget. I hope your all subscribers are happy healthy and wealthy. Please continue such precious video

  • Thank you Brett! I LOVE your videos and tips. Could you please do a video or share how you edit your videos? I’m to the point where I have content but need some help with editing. That’s easy!:) Possibly an app? If you already have a video or information can you please point me in the right direction please?

  • About 1.5 or 2 years back, hardly could attempt one forth of this lesson. Today I have done almost 80% of this.. with a calmer heart. Lots of Love and Light ������

  • Hi…… Beautiful……. u n ur boy Frnd….. awesome…….. I follow u n daily I practice yoga……. Thank u so much……

  • Im definitely not at your yoga level yet but I was mesmerized just by looking at your practice. I am practicing and Ive been practicing on and off for a few months but since we are on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic I am going to really immerse myself into the practice. I loved your yoga flow and I hope that someday I can do it at your level and do it as beautifully as you did. Plus the view you had was amazing. Thank you for sharing your poses with us

  • Yes Brett! You are a genius at teaching online, thank you for the tips! ��After taking your 200 hour training (which was brilliant), I was inspired and ready to start my channel. So thank you! ��

  • Thank you so much, this session really challenged with me poses that I thought I couldn’t do and pushed me to try them. I loved the binds, and I did my first headstand! Wish you all the best

  • I can’t believe I did everything BUT the head stand…. I need to practice but I feel great!! I love all of your videos thank you for posting!

  • Hi and thank you for this video. This was really something that I was struggling the most in the beginning of my teaching, and still sometimes today. Your ideas are so wonderful and simple. Silke

  • When you’re young, you’re always worrying what other people are thinking about you.
    When you reach middle age, you no longer care what other people think of you.
    And when you’re old, you realise, everyone was just thinking about themselves all along.

  • I remember when this video first came out. How good I felt about it. Now there was a commercial break during the first bird of paradise, the second bird of paradise and the head stand. Tell me: How am I supposed to continue practicing with you?

  • I had a hunch that you will do flying pegion after standing pegion. Also the “Yogic Squat” can be called Malasana (posture while excretion) which indicates Indian way of squatting for potty.

  • this video got me to tears of realization after headstand so much realized during this practice. 2020 is too much but we are still here to breath and be. As a fellow yoga instructor, Thank You!

  • Unconditional love. Tommy starts with it threads it all the way through. Perhaps if we see our higher power as loving us unconditionally, we can love ourselves in that way, and love the other in that way. Start there. If we love ourselves and others that way, we are also returning that love back to our source, our higher power. Love without expecting anything in return. ALL the spiritual traditions and reconnections (re-ligions) flow with that divine loving force that leads to recovery and healing. Find A WAY to put yourself in the path of another (it may be yourself!!) who needs help, healing, recovery. The WAY is whatever method brings unconditional love into that life. That is your consent to accept the divine presence, for that presence IS ❤️ love.

  • Thank u so much for posting this video Tommy. I’ve been so blessed by finding you and Recovery 2.0. I’ve been trying to get sober since 2015…it’s been rough.

  • In words i cant describe how much i loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee your channel. You two juliana and mark are the most awesome people i know, who i dont know personnaly. soory for my bad enlish im just an austrian studet, is there someonec from austria?????love and light, namaste❤❤☯������

  • It was refreshing to watch this video. I too believe that people have the right to choose their recovery pathway. Just think how nice it would be if the treatment industry and drug courts extended the same curtesy. The animosity people have toward the 12-Steps and the divisions within the recovery community stem from the treatment industry’s allegiance to the singularity of recovery. This one size fits all approach to recovery has never achieved more than marginal success and it’s highly unlikely that it will grow more than its current ratio within the recovery community. The 12-Steps are a belief system not a medical treatment, hence the inability to convert everyone. The same is true with other belief systems such as religion or political parties, even within Christianity there are over 38,000 different denominations. To think one recovery pathway will serve everyone is not only unrealistic, it’s untenable and defies logic. Good treatment is client–centered, helping individuals develop healthier lifestyles by matching their strengths with activities and goals that resonate with the client’s beliefs and values, not the beliefs and values of the treatment facility. This singularity of recovery has become a barrier to improving recovery rates, is feeding the growing anti12-Step sentiment and impedes human understanding of addiction.

  • But what to do when u have absolutely nobody to do the inventory with? The only way is on ur own,or not al all…and I’ll think I’ll go with the first.

  • Awesome, I finished a teacher’s course and could not get the chance to practice giving classes, this video is very helpful to recover much of the lost confidence with idle times

  • I couldn’t do the meetings for some reason. It just didn’t work for me. I always ended up gravitating toward the wrong people there and I dwelled on my addiction and using while attending. Everyone’s different I know I wouldn’t recommend anyone else to do it my way. For 90 Percent of people the meeting a day is great. It’s just what I had to do to save myself from opiate addiction. Once a week I’ve been going online and writing positive comments to people struggling. I watch recovery videos, surround myself only with clean normal people and I have a supportive family and this is the only thing that worked for me. I now have days at a time where I don’t get a single thought about opiates except dreams at night. When I do get a thought the few times a week I do not entertain it and i think about how destructive it is for a couple hours of feeling high. Not worth it. Good luck everyone, do what you have to do to get well.

  • the book “Theme Weaver: Connect the Power of Inspiration to Teaching Yoga” is a must read for yoga teachers. Got my copy here https://www.amazon.com/dp/0984875514

  • This was extremely helpful! I’m going to start teaching at my crossfit gym on the weekends and I’ve been to several classes, but knowing the sequence of how things should unfold is a whole other story vs participating in the actual class. Thank you so much!

  • I know this is an older video, but this is my first time trying this one. I can tell I’ve came a long way with you and I’m loving it!❤

  • Great video… I’m 17 years in 12 steps (Brazil) family members CODA, Alanon, ACA, and now struggling a lot in DA and UA….��
    I love the clarity and ease way that you explain recovery teachings.
    Thank you for your service to humanity.

  • Hi Brett, this is helpful as many of your tips are! I am a newly certified yoga teacher and jumped in to the deep end by starting a Facebook Group to invite others to practice with me. As I’ve been getting more confident I’ve been integrating my work as a therapist by posting short videos about empowerment and overcoming mental health challenges. I would like to start a YouTube channel but I’m not sure how I want to focus. Any suggestions would be awesome!

  • This was a great class! From a fellow yoga teacher very well paced and sequenced. I loved that it was more advanced but still with the calming and peaceful vibes. I hope to build some more strength in bird of paradise:)

  • Ashley you ROCK thank you!!! I have been doing yoga for years and want to teach a class as a fundraiser, but had no idea where to start! You put everything in perspective for me in a FUN way. Wish I knew ya in real life lol!! Thanks again!!

  • I used to do this everyday and I kind of stepped off the intense yoga train and god I tried it today and I was done by 10 minutes ��

  • 2-3 weeks ago I did this Yoga workout and I didn’t really achieved those advanced postures…however continued to practice other of your pilates/yoga classes every single day! Now those weeks later I gave it one more try AND I MADE IT!!! ������‍♀️���� Goal accomplished and not thinking ever to quit ��

  • I really wanna do just like u
    My age is 14 I practice yoga everyday and try to make my postures more clear each day
    I really want to be perfect like u when I come at your age ��
    Or in short i really inspired by u ����

  • Thank you so much for recording this talk. I found it very helpful, with the bottom line being let us people in recovery, by any means, respect each other’s pathways to recovery that work for them in a positive way. Let’s not be denouncers. Let’s be a part of growing up, creating room for others in our hearts, and taking action to improve our fellow community members’ odds for recovery and a quality life of meaning and purpose. I found many things wrong with the 12-step program when I was in early recovery. I was so sensitive, so isolated, so haughty, and so fearful that I judged with contempt anything or anyone that pinged my inner sense of not good enough. After all, I had been secretly struggling to recover myself for eleven years, and had failed miserably. So, I couldn’t allow something I didn’t even understand, to “work.” I can see how the 12 steps would not work for many, many people. But the 12 steps-after a long, hard fight-began to work for me and I will be forever grateful.

    It hurts me when people denigrate the 12-step programs because I am standing there a changed woman, being told that the 12-steps are harmful. I know counselors and therapists who still believe that 12-step programs are cults. Whenever I hear something negative about 12-step programs, I evaluate whether there is anything that I can do to change it. For example, there is a lot of talk of how dangerous it is to attend 12-step meetings for women. I wrote to the General Service Office (GSO) and they sent me helpful suggestions, including language that could be used in meeting preambles or otherwise, which speaks of 12-step programs being a “microcosm of society,” and therefore (which may have prompted a need for the locked door another commenter mentioned who knows?) participants must be aware and alert to possible dangers. Here is what the GSO sent and what I shared with my 12-step home group. I am now considering asking for a group conscience as to whether we might review this material on some sort of periodic basis.

    Suggested Statement on Safety

    Our group endeavors to provide a safe meeting place for all attendees and encourages each person here to contribute to fostering a secure and welcoming environment in which our meetings can take place. As our Traditions remind us, the formation and operation of an A.A. group resides with the group conscience. Therefore, we ask that group members and others refrain from any behavior which might compromise another person’s safety.
    Also, please take the precautions you feel are necessary to ensure your own
    personal safety, for example, walking to your car in a group after a meeting. If a situation should arise where someone feels their safety is in jeopardy, or the situation breaches the law, the individuals involved should take appropriate action.
    Calling the proper authorities does not go against any A.A. Traditions and is recommended when someone may have broken the law or endangered the safety of another person.

    Service Material from the General Service Office

    F-211_Safety_Card.indd 1 9/14/17 4:15 PM

    100M – 9/17 (GP) F-211

    Our Common Welfare

    Each member of Alcoholics Anonymous is but a small part of a great whole. A.A. must continue to live or most of us will surely die. Hence our common
    welfare comes first. But individual welfare follows close afterward. —Tradition One (Long Form)

    It is hoped that our common suffering as alcoholics and our common solution in
    A.A. will transcend most issues and curtail negative behaviors that could jeopardize the safety of anyone attending an A.A. meeting. Nevertheless, Alcoholics Anonymous is a microcosm of the larger society we exist in. As such, problems
    found in the outside world can also make their way into the rooms of A.A. For this reason, groups and members discuss the topic of safety — to raise awareness in the Fellowship and to seek through sponsorship, workshops and meetings, to
    create as safe an environment as possible to carry A.A.’s message of hope and recovery to the still-suffering alcoholic.

    Again, thank you for your topic. I hope we will be seeing more of this

  • I’m really proud and impressed that I’ve been able to do this workout (of course not the hardest poses) and that I’m intermediate������ And what’s more I’ve been able to do it peacefully, which is not usual for me when I do hard suff

  • I’m actually wanting to start a Youtube channel for Synergy Yoga studio in Oldtown Rock Hill S.C. I’m already a Synergy ambassador and I’m currently taking the 200 hour yoga teacher training with them. Since they had to temporarily close down because of Covid-19, they have adapted quickly by providing online classes and free Facebook live content. I would love to extend that even further with a channel providing hybrid content that defines the culture and style of this sweet little studio.

  • My God this was so clear and helpful. You are an amazing teacher. I’m not a yoga teacher but I want to use your guidelines to create my own sequences for my home practice and this video was super helpful. Thank you so much for sharing. Bless you!

  • This is so helpful!!! I just started doing yoga at home with the guide of YouTube videos in a 30 day program but I’d like to be able to personalize my own routines once I have more experience. The yoga world is so intimidating to newbies and this helped me so so much!!!

  • thanks Brett. I am thinking of starting an online video channel but am nervous to do so. This is encouraging me and helpful in how to start taking steps to do so.

  • This came just at the right time! ������
    I am just starting my channel and your tips are soooo helpful, thank you so much. Can’t wait to share my videos with the world.
    I would love if you would film a video on how you set up your filming set and how your whole filming process looks, kind of a vlog on how you film your videos. ��✨
    Sending you so much love from Germany. Namasté you beautiful soul. ❤️

  • Thankyou so much. I have just started to get a following for my studio and we were shutdown. After feeling heartbroken for the last 6 weeks this popped up on my tube. Meant to be!! Im excited about rejuvenating my channel with your guidance ���� Thank you again. I appreciate it

  • Thank you so much for the work you do for recovery. I love your passion, knowledge, wisdom, & energy. I so agree that language can be such a barrier to communication and understanding. Peace ☮️

  • It was amazing class. Transition from one posture to the other was incredible. I couldn’t believe myself as I almost did ‘bird of paradise’ after trying for 3 days. Thank you so much. Love from India����

  • Hi mam actually I am trying to make payment but its not working. Because I don’t have credit cards, I have only debit cards so plz let me know how I will join your workshop plz thank u������.

  • I have used some other yoga catalogs in the past however, this yoga guide “Yοmzοzο Kena” (Google it) differs from the others because of the accompanying illustration of positions involved. They are huge and colorful so it is easy to visualize exactly what the pose is SUPPOSED to appear like. And not only that, I am losing a few pounds too..

  • Great video. Thank you for sharing! I’m straggling with emotional wounds from the past and hope it will help me. Where do you live now Tommy? I love the sound of the crickets:)

  • Chinese should also be scared to see this Let the Japanese have their hearts Wow sir is the training of goods May god bless you Amen

  • All the people who have disliked your video, in fact, all those people were jealous of your talent and your videos and started getting jealous of you, so I liked your video. But Respected Master ji, you are very talented and a smart and healthy teacher. You have shared a good practice video. Thank you.

  • 1 through 11 made me feel like i want to get up and start doing them
    and then i was like why do i hear boss music? and 12 popped up

  • I remember watching this video when I was a practitioner and just loving to listen to her… understanding close to nothing. As a beginning yoga teacher I must say she has a way of making things simple. PLUS, talk is good, but demonstration especially the way this girl effortlessly moves into posesis powerful. I wish I could attend her classes… to steal some of her wisdom. NAMASTE

  • Fuck I can’t do the 12th one, can anyone please help out on what I could do to make my core that strong enough to be able to do that, Please!
