When you are a brand new yogi you might have a lot of doubts, but you mainly ask yourself; if you would be able to manage the art of yoga. Here we´ll give you 5 tips for yoga beginners that you ´ll love.
Getting to know what’s expected from you and what works ahead of time will help you to feel more comfortable during your first class.
Yoga is an ancient discipline and art from India.
It is both, spiritual because it´s in the hunt for mental balance and physical because it strengths your muscles and respiratory system.
That´s why many people consider yoga as a kind of sport.
Yoga applies breathing techniques, exercise, and meditation.
It helps to improve health and happiness.
Here’s what yoga beginners should know before their first flow.
1. Working on your own? Bad idea!
Consider that yoga beginners should best head to a gym or studio.
In-person is the best option when you´re noob yogi.
Some people just use videos, it might seem cheaper, but Can you prove that you are performing every movement correctly?
What about your breathing, who can guide you to breathe suitably?
Instruction is extremely important as you get started with your practice.
Trainers can provide personalized feedback on form, and they can offer modification suggestions for different poses or asanas for those yoga beginners.
It´s simply impossible to get right or proper feedback through any online or video-based platform.
2. Choose the Best Place to practice it
It´s clear that yoga beginners need help to practice yoga for the very first time.
Thus, do we require any special place to do it?
It´s a place that makes you feel comfortable, you don´t have to worry about wearing expensive sportswear and you have everything you need around.
But, practicing yoga at home can get more expensive and difficult, because you´ll have to find out a personal trainer.
And you´ll have to adapt your schedule to him/her.
If you don´t find out a trainer, you might suffer an accident for lacking guidance.
Then, you can go to a gym or studio, they are very nice and adapted to practice yoga.
Nevertheless, the best place to practice yoga is a natural or green setting.
The most appropriate place to practice yoga is the beach, here you find lots of advantages and benefits you get a plus.
3. What to Wear?
Even though you practice yoga at home any yoga beginner should have an idea about what to wear.
Simple but, appropriate.
Yoga is mostly done barefoot.
You will occasionally see people with some kind of sock or shoe, but that’s often due to an injury or medical condition.
It is not a requirement.
But if you prefer to wear something on your feet, compromise by wearing yoga socks.
These are special socks; they have non-slip grips on the bottom that “grab” the mat to prevent slipping around.
There are many different styles of yoga pants.
Any comfortable exercise pants or shorts will do, just make sure you avoid pants that don’t stretch, like jeans.
A shirt that’s a little bit fitted works best for yoga.
Big sleeveless tops are popular since they allow freedom of movement in the arms and shoulders.
Well, at the beach you don´t have to worry about it…
4.The Best Way to Start…
There’s no better way to learn than by doing, but a first practice can feel like a lot.
The most important thing to remember is to keep breathing and stay focused on yourself.
Keep a close eye on the instructor’s positions.
Pay attention to the precise way the body lines up in each posture.
Good alignment is very important to maximize each pose’s benefits and minimize the chance to get injured.
Don’t feel bad if the instructor corrects your postures.
Hands-on instruction is incredibly helpful for learning good form.
Just smile and laugh if you fall out of a pose, don´t worry and enjoy yourself.
Remember; there is no hurry to get into any particular pose. Listen to your body and respect what it tells you about how to move.
