Advice for Yoga Beginners Where To Start? Q&A

Video taken from the channel: Yoga with Kassandra


Tips to keep in mind when you’re starting out: Try before you buy Take advantage of free class offers from yoga studios, and try different types of yoga. Arrive early and prepared Bringing your own mat is customary, so be sure to get to class about 15 minutes early to stake out your space and meet the instructor. Yoga for Beginners and How to Start Doing Yoga – The Takeaway The Bhagavad Gita said, “Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” When you step onto the mat, you gain as much mental flexibility as you do physical flexibility. You gain strength and confidence, self-awareness, power, focus, and clarity. This pose also strengthens, lengthens, and energizes every one of your muscles, primarily the arms, shoulders and legs. Downward dog pose also tones the waist and core.

I love this posture for beginners because it truly works the entire body and is great to practice during your daily/weekly yoga. There are a lot of poses that require you to bend, lie down and so much more, and so you might want to start with some very simple and basic poses like the ones below: Mountain pose (Tadasana) – This is said to be the mother of all poses because it establishes balance to the poses. To do.

Yoga makes your body strong, supple and healthy Of course, you need to give it a chance but most people start feeling some of the physical benefits of yoga during their first class. In time (maybe shorter than you think!) your flexibility will increase, your fitness levels improve, your muscles will grow stronger and you’ll become more supple. Sadhguru recommends cool or tepid water as it makes “the pores between the skin cells open up, and that’s important for practicing yoga because we want the cellular structure of the body to be charged with a different dimension of energy.” 3. Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes.

As we looked at, yoga works on one’s energy system. A yoga mat is not necessary but it is a good idea to invest in one if you want to practice safe yoga. The tiles tend to be very slippery and you do not want to slip and injure yourself while. If you want to build a routine, building time for yoga into your everyday life is a good option. However, when you choose to practice might impact on what sort of practice you do.

For example, practicing first thing in the morning is great if you want to do something energetic, like flow. But, if you’re new to yoga, it can be hard to know where to start. Don’t let yourself feel intimidated; just remember a few simple hints, and you’ll be well on your way to practicing a fun and rewarding yoga for beginners workout. What you need for your first yoga routine. A regular yoga practice can help improve your balance and muscle flexibility.

And don’t stress if you’re a beginner: There are ways to modify yoga poses to fit your not-so-limber limbs until you’re a more seasoned pro. Check out these moves to help you get started. 10.

  • New to yoga and not sure where to start? We’ve all been there! Here are my top 5 tips for those who don’t know where to begin. I’m also joined by special guest, Brett Larkin:) Did you like this class? Let me know by leaving a comment below!

  • I’ve been using Kassandra’s videos for almost a month now, and I’m finally comfortable enough with yoga to admit that I’m a beginner. This video was so informative, and I appreciate all the tips. I’ll definitely check out Brett’s channel as well. Thank you both for offering your insights and your videos.

  • I have to say, the fact that you have only been doing yoga for 6 months and you can do a handstand without the wall is incredible!!! I’m fairly new to yoga myself (about 9 months) so I’m nowhere near holding it without a wall yet but people in my class that have been going for years are still struggling!! amazing!!! ❤️��

  • Hey, my two favourite online yoga teachers! Thanks, ladies. I love both your channels and love to combine your styles along with my local yoga studio classes.

  • Absolutely LOVE this video! Such great advice and I’m at the point now where I need to just find the courage to GO to a class! Thabks for the tips ❤️

  • Thank you ���� I love the way you speak, your pronounciation, it is loud and clear. When I watch a video especially a tutorial one, it is so frustationg when I have to rewind and rewind again just try to figure out what the speaker says.

  • I started yoga several days ago and it’s amazing! I feel really better and more calm! I didn’t choose proper style yet and have a question is it ok if I’ll mix different styles? Or I have to choose and work only in one style?
    Thank you in advance!

  • Love this video!:) Great tips. ALSO many cities have donation-based studios, where you can pay what you can no questions asked <3

  • Hi Caitlin! Love your videos ❤️ The yoga channels you mentioned are definitely awesome, but there are so many other great ones as well! I have over 200 yoga videos that are great for all levels as well that I’ve been sharing since 2014. I often do yoga challenges & have tons of resources on my website!!! Yoga is an AMAZING thing to do no matter where you practice, so thanks so much for sharing this!! Happy Holidays xoxo

  • I remember when I bought the Manduka Black Mat Pro. Lifetime warranty, holla! My friends thought I was crazy to buy a 7 lb $100 mat haha. Sorry that I want to have a really good mat!

  • Hi Kris! Another self taught yogi here:)
    Is it for you next to getting those advanced poses also a deeper, spiritual journey?
    I got into yoga, because I needed to destress and the spiritual side attracted me. I’ve watched a few documentary’s and read a few books now on the history of yoga and the buddha. It really deepens your practice and gives it even more purpose�� I’m working on handstand now, but even more on my form in all other “basic” poses(chaturanga is an important one) and I’m working on my hip flexibility. Finally seeing progress in that department haha.
    Keep going, I love to see other people their yoga journey!
    When I am able to use my laptop again I will start making video’s again and perhaps also more about yoga:) for now I stick to my blog.

  • im 16, and i guess people can say i am an athlete? (i run, surf, paddle, kayak,skate and also play soccer) however yoga had been the most challeging one, but i havent put a cent on it, i just play some reggae music and flow for a great time, i have been do it for about 6 months and now i can crow, side corw, split, head shoulder and working on the handstand, im so proud, totally recomend it!just play your favorite music and have some fun

  • Thank you. I know this has been up for a couple of years, but I just found it and it’s inspired me to start actually doing yoga instead of thinking about it.

  • Yoga has been my gateway to connect spiritually to my inner self. It all started with free yoga in the park that was offered in my town back in 2013 lol. Anyway Great tips and I love the way you deliver the message!!

  • Great info! Especially for me as a beginner������… Q. I’ve been physically fit for the past 2 years doing plyo workouts and weight training. I’m 16 weeks pregnant and I have never done yoga before. I’ve tried 1 beginner video of yours and I do at my pace, will still be ok to carry on with your beginner videos? Or shhould I start looking into prenatal yoga?

  • I just came across this video and I was wondering if yoga can help with things like back and neck pain? I want to try it but I am the least flexible person on this earth and I also have really bad back and neck pain so I’m afraid that it will be painful or make it worse.

  • hey caitlin this video was so helpful thank you so much ; so i’m 18 and i’m starting yoga this days in my house, i practice a little bit of fitness in my house but i’m not flexible at all and i’m wondering will i be one day flexible or it’s too late (i’m not saying that i will stop yoga because i’m not flexible i like too much and it helps me to evacuate the stress ) i hope you see this comment and answer me
    ps: i’m so sorry for my bad english lol

  • I started doing yoga last week. I’ve been to five classes I really enjoy yoga but due to work I want to do it from home. I’m scared that if I do it from home I won’t have someone to instruct me on how to do the poses correctly. Do you feel like it’s safe for people do it completely from home?

  • This helped. I can’t wait to begin my practices. Singing Dragon has some nice books on yoga so they’ll be my text books. Thanks for the advices!

  • Hey Kassandra! Thank you so much for your inspiring videos. As for me, I’ve battled a lot with my weight, and the idea of doing yoga never seemed even possible. I’m not a sportsperson by any means, but I do want to improve my condition. I’ve tried pretty much everything a gym has to offer, but end up always quitting after a couple of months. In addition to my weight problem, I also have a lower back condition that disables me to run or jump. So, long story short, tried to do something to gain some more flexibility and core/lower back strength, and that ended up being Yin Yoga. I’ve started a few months ago and feel absolutely wonderful at the end of every class. I got so enthusiastic about yoga that I wanted to try a few more styles, but was completely terrified to go to other yoga classes besides Yin. So I found you! And even if I get forever stuck in your beginner classes, I have to thank you very, very much for all the help. You’re an amazing person and a very kindred spirit. I hope to follow your success for many, many years. Love, Yessica:)

  • Hey.. i want to start yoga. Are there any rules for doing yoga, like time of the day, empty stomach or eating something before.. anything like that?

  • Hiya, I’m new. Right now I am just trying ‘yoga for beginners’ youtube videos, as you’ve said there’s a lot of different styles, some of the videos I’m trying to follow have the names of the styles in the title, is it okay to switch between styles if you’re following different videos every day? Thank you:)

  • I was one of those people with little body awareness. Her advice taking classes is great! I took classes a couple years for yoga, Pilates, and Barre, and even though I took those three years ago, I have great body awareness now such as recognizing if my shoulders are lifted or my knee is twisted behind me. Also doing it in front of mirror is good too. I have good awareness but I still am learning and mirror helps you catch yourself

  • Great tips! Have just found yin yoga and it’s a fabulous addition to my gym workout. No more gym yoga. A studio provides exactly what I needed. You two provided some great info for us beginners. Thank you!

  • Hey can u make a video of those five yoga tht was ur favorite as a beginner…( 5:45) i need to start yoga in this quarantine… Please make it ASAP… My humble request ����

  • Groupon is an awesome resource for yoga classes. I started doing yoga because I found a great deal for some classes and it was a great way to kickstart my practice.

  • Let’s start at the beginning.
    Yoga is a Sanskrit word which means “union”.
    The type of yoga most practiced in the U.S..is hatha yoga. This focuses on flexibility and breathing. I have also studied raja yoga, a form of open eyed meditation. I have a friend who studied kundilani yoga, which focuses on alignment of the chakras. Neither of these involves flexibility training, although breathing is involved.
    There are literally hundreds of other forms of yoga, including Tantra, the sexy one. This involves a partner, of course.:)
    So to say “yoga” is to encompass hundreds of disciplines. Please be as specific as possible, okay?:)

  • I would like to see your mornung routine as well as some fitness related stuff, maybe how to build strength in arms / shoulders. And I would like to see a room tour:D
    Thanks for sharing your experience!

  • I’m coming out of a 10-year battle with chronic pelvic pain (dry needling and pressure point therapy) and want to start yoga as I get better. Even though the pain is no longer constant but comes and go, I’m hoping that some kind of yoga will help alleviate pain and stress but mostly get my mind into a healing state. Do you have suggestions for me? Also I have an adult son and an adult daughter, both on super strong medications to battle schizophrenia and schizoaffective Disorder which have caused severe weight gain in both (100 pounds on my son, 65 pounds on my daughter). Now that I’ve helped each one change their eating habits, I’d like to encourage them to try yoga, specifically for mental calmness and something to help them lose their large bellys (as in now looks 8 months pregnant belly). Can you tell which direction to go with them now?

  • Thanks Kassandra for this video. I was searching for videos for beginners and I was afraid of so many things you have discussed in this video.. but I need to know how much time should I spend for practice and it should be 4 days per week or everyday

  • Hello, Many thanks for your Yoga videos. It’s great as everytime. You know what!? I found to yoga pillow and I can not decided for buy that. Could you please create video about it? Here is the link: https://amzn.to/30t71ju. I am waiting for your comment about the product.

  • Many thanks, I been tryin to find out about “yoga meditation online” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Fonylan Inconceivable Future (should be on google have a look )?

    It is an awesome one off product for discovering how to get your sexiest body without the hard work. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my work buddy got cool success with it.

  • Winner of a video, been searching for “best power yoga youtube” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Fonylan Inconceivable Future (should be on google have a look )?

    It is an awesome one of a kind product for discovering how to get your sexiest body minus the hard work. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my neighbour got excellent results with it.

  • This was great, been searching for “can you do yoga everyday?” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Fonylan Inconceivable Future (just google it )?

    It is a great one off product for discovering how to get your sexiest body minus the normal expense. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my mate got cool success with it.

  • This comment is super late but I just wanted to say I recommend yoga to people with depression and anxiety. I have extreme debilitating anxiety and therapy and medication barely helped but yoga saved my life. There is an insane difference on days I do yoga vs days I don’t. Im like a whole different person.

  • So motivierend und richtig inspirierend! Meine Oma guckt mit mir und ihr gefällts auch! Haha:D Morgenroutine und Strenghtbuild würde mich sehr interessieren:)

  • I think it is really beautiful to start yoga with videos, and testimonials about yoga. It gives people the chance to relate to each other, with distance. Yoga is so personal. It wakes up so much. It can be daunting going right into sharing with a group of strangers.

    Thanks for sharing your love of Yoga Caitlin! You are obviously reaching people in a beautiful way.

    I started with videos too, 20 years ago! I’ve been teaching 13 years. I just made this video to empower you to practice ON YOUR OWN!

    I hope you visit and like it. It takes some time 40 minutes. But the idea is, if you can itnernalize these principles you are freed to do it anywhere.

  • Thank you so much! That is a kind of a Video I’ve been Looking for sooo long. I started with Yoga already, but just with Videos and sometimes in a studio, but I never really know what to do, so it was just randomly. Also I have been in Canada for the past Five months and now that I am back in Germany I can finally go deeper into yoga!:)

  • Hi I have a question. What if you start off and you have quite a bit of access fat and it’s harder to do some of the poses what helps with working around that? Also what should you do if you start off and you start feeling dizzy? What are some things you could recommend to remedy that?

  • Hey Cait!

    I really want to get into yoga every day as well… but after my first real home session my lower back said OUCH! 3 days after im still hurting �� what to do?! I wanna do yoga!

  • I own a B Mat. They’re Canadian made, and super grippy! Plus, they don’t smell like some mats. I feel like a gecko when I’m in downward dog, and my hands don’t slide. Definitely recommend a BMat!

  • As for prices at studios: I live in a place where there are a couple yoga studios that do sessions by donation, and it’s just encouraged to chuck 5 20 bucks in a box, low pressure, great thing.

  • Hello, Many thanks for your Yoga videos. It’s great as everytime. You know what!? I found to yoga pillow and I can not decided for buy that. Could you please create video about it? Here is the link: https://amzn.to/30t71ju. I am waiting for your comment about the product.

  • Sorry, off topic.. but you’re gorgeous.
    I’m at the very beginning of my journey but I’m optimistic for things to become better and better

  • Yes for that Manduka! I have a Pro, Pro lite, eko superlite travel mat, and a Manduka X. They really do have some of the best mats.

  • Chloé, where can I talk to you? You are such an ANGEL…!!! btw, i am 12yo girl that is in love with you, thank you for making my life so much better ❤��

  • I was wondering I just started trying to practice yoga alone away from my phone/tablet/laptop. I find it irritating keeping count of the rounds. I just want to focus on my movements and breath. I started to practice sun salutations and I don’t want to think about the number I am on. So my question to you can I just set my timer for 15, 30 or a hour and do my sun salutations like that? Plus I don’t even know how many rounds I have to do for sun salutations for it to be beneficial. Don’t want to waste my time nor do I want to overdo it, searching for that baby bear’s porridge.

  • Nice video! Kinda motivates me to do yoga more often��
    I should probably invest in some yoga blocks and maybe in a new map because mine is not tje best and my pets destroyed it a little:D
    And I would also recommend kinoyoga and Bohobeautiful on youtube:)

  • So I’ m doing yoga for about 5 months,I do it every day, and I want to challange myself. I can easily do intermediate yoga classes on online but I just want a little more challange. What do you recommend?

  • For anyone in San Diego, I’m the assistant manager at Mantra Yoga & Juice Bar. Come in and try us out. We offer a great intro, 30 days for $30. That’s what I did when I first started practicing 3 years ago, and I loved it so much that I honestly never left. If you have any questions about anything yoga related let me know. I’m a certified instructor and I’m here to help. Namaste. ������✨

  • Supi Vid:) Fand deine deutschen Videos persönlich ansprechender, kann aber verstehen dass du sie nun auf Englisch drehst dein IG Community ist ja glaub ich auch eher international. Dein Englisch ist auf jeden Fall top!

    Hast mich sehr inspiriert, habe letzte Woche selber mit Yoga angefangen, bin mal gespannt wie lange ich für einen Handstand brauche xD bin super ungelenkig, aber wird schon! uuund ich würde mich sehr über Workout-Videos (besonders für zuhause, da ich nicht ins gym gehe) freuen und über weitere Yoga-Videos ebenso!:)

    Mach weiter so, freue mich schon auf deine nächsten Videos <3

    Liebste Grüße x
    Hannah

  • Just discovered your channel, i love it! I will copy your hair routine as my hair are curly too. I’m reading a book avout yoga to start it, I’d love to see your morning routine and more yoga!!:)

  • you should check out Silke Dewulf or theplantbasedyoga teacher!! She is starting to do more intense yoga flows but I 100% also recommend her for beginners because she really goes into alignment and takes it slow

  • Hi Caitlin! I was wondering if you have some recommendations Youtube video wise for practicing yoga on different levels (so beginner, more advanced etc.). Thanks in advance!

  • i am a yoga teacher and i think going to a yogastudio is so improtent. Seeing people who practiced yoga for a long time in person is beneficial for all the questions that will cum up. And doing an Asana wrong can mean you look funny or it can mean that you are hurting yourself. Injuries can cum up by practicing Asanas wrong. So its important to see a teacher who can correct your mistakes.

  • I want to yoga cuz #1 to get off my ass and not be lazy push myself and be proud of doing something #2 to get my sore bones to stretch ASAP when I get up. I want to practice at home

  • Another great place to get in studio yoga classes for cheap is Groupon. I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and at any given time there are at least 4 or 5 studios with discounts in my neighborhood.

  • Applying this yoga guide “Yοmzοzο Kena” (Google it), I have incorporated yoga exercise to a diet and fitness plan that has ended in a 40 pound weight reduction so far this year. Whether you plan of utilizing it informally or privately, it is a worth to try this guidebook. The directions along with its descriptions are super easy to comprehend..

  • or be like me and look for a studio that offers work study. so i work the front desk for 3 hours a week and I get free classes as reimbursement

  • Question for Caitlin! What are your thoughts on practicing yoga but “having” to be a vegan first? I am a vegetarian and LOVE yoga, but I can’t seem to get it out of my head that I need to be a vegan to practice yoga. Also, I’m so happy you made this video because for the longest time I’ve wanted to get back into yoga and I feel like it’s finally the time!:) Love your channel!

  • Yogaglo.com is a great subscription website. About two dozen different world renowned teachers offer hundreds of classes in different styles all for $18/month. Kathryn Budig and Tiffany Cruikshank are two of my favorite teachers from that site.

  • i was thinking about do yoga since long time ago but now i really would like to do it and i know its not gonna be easy for me.. thank you so much for your advise it was really helpfull, ill let you know how its going few weeks after start:)

  • Such a helpful video, I fell in love with your yoga mat on instagram and got my own. �� You’re amazing “if you’re a human, you can do this”. ❤️

  • For thriving plant based, does she have a layout of what vid to do in what order because I wouldn’t know what the right progressions would be

  • I definately recommend that beginners take a yoga class. Having a teacher give guidance and help you get understand good alignment is important to prevent injury. Yin yoga is not the same as restorative yoga. Yin yoga is a slower practice and poses are held for several mins in which you are stretching your connective tissues. The use of props in yin yoga is simply to keep you in the pose. A restorative yoga practice is more relaxing and props are used to help you relax into the pose.

  • Just wonderful, I have been researching “what is best yoga for beginners?” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Fonylan Inconceivable Future (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )?

    It is a great exclusive product for discovering how to get your sexiest body minus the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my friend got great success with it.

  • Hi Kassandra, I enjoyed watching your channel and I have a question for you? Can you tell me what type of yoga can I get into, that doesn’t require a lot of stretching on my left side, I am a breast cancer survivor and have lymphedema in my left arm, and because of the surgery area i can’t stretch my arm all the way out, my doctor has said i can do yoga i just have to be cautious of that arm, also i have arthritis in my knees, so can you suggest a starting point for me please….

  • Great video thanks. I’m a 55y/o male, and a beginner in yoga. In fact, I haven’t even started yet. I am considering it seriously though to help with my flexibility.  Would you suggest the Restorative, and Yen to start. Also are your lessons geared to both male, and female?

  • you can say i have been a beginner for over 20 yrs…I started with Denise Austin VHS tape at home….its always been a challenge for me due to the fact that almost all beginner videos don’t feel like beginner videos….the description of the poses are voiced SOOO FAST, ALMOST ROBOTIC and for someone who is new doesn’t know the name of the poses, and the transition from one movement to the next tends to also go pretty fast and it just seemed confused…I also come from a dance and athletic background but all the instructions just always seem so fast….I believed Yoga was a soft gentle way of exercising the body but the quickness of the structure would always turn me off….but here I am 2019 and still willing to give it another try….I have just been doing Yoga for seniors for a while….I just discovered your channel Kassandra and I am looking forward to exploring it…

  • I missed your video’s! I’m doing very basic yoga twice a day and i wanted to start doing handstands and other stuff. so this is just what I needed:) what’s your MBTI? i’m really curious:P

  • I am speechless. I postponed my excercices every time with the fear of doing something wrong or the possibility having injuries but seeing your video gave me that confidence to give it a try anyway. But honestly don’t you have any athletic backgrounds? Anyhow i’m glad i saw your video. You have a beautiful appearance and charisma.

  • I also love that you have a dedicated instagram page for your flow! For someone who’s not doing yoga when I looked at your poses I’m mind blown! I’m now debating if I need to do yoga or crossfit…

  • i also like Fightmaster yoga:) also yoga with Kassandra as she explains every step very well and doesn’t rush through the poses. didn’t like Adrienne at all., find her quite annoying actually.

  • When I started out executing yoga using this yoga guide “Yοmzοzο Kena” (Google it) I was almost 330 pounds. I couldn`t sleep well and then my blood pressure level isn`t healthy (very high). The guide content material is approachable and easy to understand. You`d be blessed to possess a copy on this one..

  • I would do my yoga exercises either in the living room or downstairs in the laundry room(floor is wide enough). I also use a LED candle to meditate after my yoga exercises. I also exercise around 9am. I hope you’re impressed.

  • I would like to share you a hack available online for the popular yoga tips. Simply type: “MindYoga4U” in Google. It will be very helpful for you.

  • This video was such great timing. I walk 5mi for work and sometimes forget to stretch properly so I wake up sore or have pain in my hip. Recently I’ve really wanted to properly start yoga and commit to it. Thank you for the video and tips!! Hope you’re having a lovely day!

  • Hey! Manduka mats are environmentally friendly as well. They’re made to last, I know students who have had theirs for 9+ years. That’s nuts, but absolutely amazing!

  • Cheers for this, I’ve been looking for “daily yoga practice at home” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Fonylan Inconceivable Future (should be on google have a look )?

    It is an awesome one off guide for discovering how to get your sexiest body minus the normal expense. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my cousin got excellent results with it.

  • sehr spannendes thema! möchte auch bald damit anfangen. mir gefallen deine videos sehr, mach weiter so! eine andere frage hab ich nur: du hast immer so tolle ringe (video über deine haare) an, woher hast du die denn? ich bin ein kleiner ringfanatiker:) ganz viel liebe an dich! ♡

  • Caitlin! Your practice looks so beautiful in your vlogs! I’m surprised you haven’t been practicing longer. Do you think it’s partially because you’ve been using thrivingplantbased? I’m debating signing up because I love Michelle and I know that you really like it and obviously recommended it in the video. I know you mentioned she has all level flows in there and I agree it’s sometimes hard to find more advanced flows on youtube. Do you think Michelle helps you advance your practice consistently? I’m just curious. Thank you!

  • Also if you’re going to have a yoga practice, consider decolonizing your practice. (check out decolonizingyoga.com) Especially if you are white, you should be practicing yoga with respect to its origins and the people who still suffer from the white appropriation of yoga.

  • Hey, good video! Would love a morning video. Your routine, time you dedicate to each part of the process and how you plan out your days. I am a university student so I would love to see how you balance things out. Take care

  • Great video! You really encourage people to JUST TRY �� would you recommend a beginner to start with the studio to just learn the basics (I don’t know, breathing techniques, correct postures to perform the basic asanas etc.) and afterwards continue doing it at home? Thanks!����

  • Waou 6 months and you already are so good. I’m so jealous xD. It’s been one year + and I still struggle with the hand stand. I will try your tips thanks. ����

  • I went to my first yoga class today and absolutely fell in love. I am so excited to start my practice. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Amazing work! Very inspiring! Thank you for making this video! I’m so impressed at your DIY approach to yoga! Looking forward to following your journey! Shannon

  • yogi nora so far i’m inspired by you after a long time of wanting to get into yoga. i’ve been doing your 3 videos for beginners that are online and they have helped so much. i wish some day i can find a few more of your full length videos to add to the variety. my schedule is to come home after work and do a yoga with you on youtube! thanks. 

  • Please more yoga videos or your morning flow. I’m new and started just how you did and I love the way you explain it and that you actually started from 0! Thanks for the video

  • I was interested in yoga for a long time and I finally decided to go to a free class and I fell in love. Then I started doing the 90 day challenge with fit master yoga (thanks for recommending her) it really helps after a 12 hr shift at the hospital to leave everything on the mat. Basically everything you are saying on the video is how I got started and plan to continue. �� thanks for the tips.

  • i just started yoga by doing your yin classes, but i’m a bit confused…. should i set up a training schedule / work to a certain goal or just do random stuff / do what i feel like

  • Sehr schönes Video. Gut erklärt mit guten Tipps. Dein Progress ist wirklich beeindruckend! Und deine Morgenroutine würde ich echt gerne sehen:D LG Sabrina

  • love this video, thank you for sharing your at home yoga routine with us! i’ve been doing yoga every day for a few months and it’s been a serious game changer in my life. sending lots of love

  • Another great resource is dvds…Daily Energy by Shiva Rea will always be my favorite. And others by her. She is good for spiritual aspects, Rodney Yee is good for the athletic aspects.

  • Thank you for this video! I’ve been wanting to try yoga for a while now, and seeing your Instagram story of your practice every day is super inspiring! I’d love a video that shows your body weight workouts:)

  • This video couldn’t have come at a better time. I’ve been trying to plan a regular morning yoga practice but have not had motivation to actually do it. I am always inspired by your videos. Thank you!

  • Roads To Bliss channel is one of my favorite online yoga videos. Also, Carrie Owerko has some of the best yoga videos for beginners to intermediate. She explains in a more practical way than Adriene or other vinyasa teachers. Also, fyi vinyasa came out of Pattahbi Jois’ Astanga-Vinyasa and Iyengar at a fundamental level is the same as Astanga-Vinyasa but is also more practical for beginners to start right.

  • Dein Durchhaltevermögen finde ich ja beeindruckend, ich hör bei sowas immer schnell wieder auf.:D Aber machst du noch mehr, also was zum Yoga lesen usw? Beim Yoga geht es ja eigentlich nicht nur um Handund Kopfstände oder allgemein nur um die Posen an sich, da gehört ja viel mehr dazu.:)

  • hey, tolles Video! Ich mach schon lange Yoga, habe aber erst vor kurzem angefangen Kopfstand, Handstand etc zu üben, deshalb ist dieses Video sehr interessant. Und eine Morning routine wäre sicherlich auch interessant:)

  • I’m really into lifting weights in the gym as my form of exercise but I’ve been extending my stretches before and afterwards to be pretty long and include more and more “yoga moves” and I enjoyed how chill and relaxing it is, so I’ve been thinking I might take up yoga as well ��thanks for the video Caitlin ❤️

  • Thank you for this video!! I’ve always wanted to get in to yoga and seeing that you are completely self taught has inspired me to just give it a go! More fitness videos please ✌������

  • This kind of yoga guide “Yοmzοzο Kena” (Google it) is a well planned handbook for everyone interested in yoga exercise you could be a completely new yogi or a grizzled old timer (this reviewer) who`s been practicing for many years. It`s outlined within the book the right inhaling and exhaling approach, posture, meditation and the recommended strategy to lose fat..

  • Thanks from Turkey ☺️☺️☺️ I am in quarantine and have been doing yoga for 57 days �� my life changed even if it was small �������� namaste ��������

  • Hey Kris! You’ve inspired me to start doing yoga in the morning. I’m starting tomorrow! This has nothing to do with the video but I recently made a trip to Germany (I live in Belgium) and I noticed how much easier it is to find vegan products. I only visited two stores (Rewe and Rossman) but they both had a lot of vegan options. Hopefully Belgium will catch up soon.:) PS: i’d love to see a morning routine! Sorry for the long comment xoxo

  • Choosing a teacher who is competent, has a deep practice and long-standing students is more of what I recommend as a beginner student. Yes, it is important to feel comfortable and like the person, but a good teacher will automatically resonate this. If, however, you only choose a teacher based on their personality then you might just overlook a teacher who challenges who to meet your edge, who is not afraid to challenge you and wants to see you grow. A too nice teacher is not necessarily the teacher from whom will offer you the lessons you need to learn. When you only want to learn then this is different….and may not be what you truly need. 

  • You are such an inspirational person! A wonderful and kind soul. I watched a few travel video’s and got me so inspired to do what i dream of doing. And that is doing yoga, eating vegan while traveling. I’ll be leaving fot southeast Asia in a couple months. So I wil try some tips you gave to learn yogo by myself. You are great! Thankyou

  • I am celebrating my 3 year yoga anniversary.  Yogi Nora is right on the money you change a lot physically AND mentally.  It’s as though your mat becomes your life, and your life your mat.  The two blur after awhile.  It’s fantastic.  I am pretty committed to my practice, and am lucky enough to teach two classes a week at my school!  Teaching yoga has been even more transformational.  Just get started and watch.  Yoga is about “listening.”  You’ll see.
