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.

  • 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.
