A complete guide for beginners on where to start with yoga. Learn useful tips and recommendations and improve your overall wellbeing through yoga.
At first, beginning to practice yoga may seem a little difficult or intimidating, especially the more complicated poses and the terminology, don´t worry too much about it! Yoga can be practiced by people of all ages and fitness levels. You can begin to practice yoga at your own pace and with basic postures until you get confident enough to level up. You will rip off the benefits from day one and start living a healthier life, both physically and mentally. If you are wondering where to start with yoga, make sure to read this article. We will provide some tips and guidelines and talk about the best ways to start practicing yoga.
Hatha yoga is usually the starting point for most beginners since it is a slower form of yoga where you get to pause between postures as opposed to Vinyasa or Ashtanga yoga which are more fluid in motion. Also, hatha yoga is at the core of the yoga practice and other styles build up from it. There may be different styles but all of them have the same ultimate goal which is achieving enlightenment and becoming one with the universe.
The best time to do yoga may be different for each person. It really comes down to each individual preference and time available. However, the general preference is to practice yoga early in the morning or in the evening after work. A morning routine will make you feel more energetic and prepared for the day while an evening routine can help you relax and unwind after a long day of work. Also, it is recommended to practice yoga at least 3 times a week in sessions of 30-50 min long. In this way, you will notice a significant improvement in your flexibility, balance, energy, and overall physical and mental condition.
You may find it easier to go to a class where an instructor guides you through different postures, or you could simply start at home with some video sessions. There are different ways to start with yoga. Whatever you do, make sure to keep it consistent and steady. Also, If you decide to practice yoga at home, it's helpful to pick a time of day when you can focus on routine without being distracted.
Simply roll out your yoga mat or get comfortable in your bare feet and a sticky surface. Make sure to wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely and stretch. To get started, you don't need any fancy yoga clothing either. Just browse through your wardrobe to find some comfortable clothes.
