If you want to learn and practice yoga you have to start somewhere. It is said that yoga is the art work of awareness on the body, mind and soul. Yoga tends to stabilize mental levels and bring peace. If you are a beginner to yoga, here are some steps to take note of.
Before starting anything new, educate yourself about it. There are many different types of yoga like Vinyasa yoga, Iyengar, Birkram and many more. Once you learn about these you will get an idea which one you’re drawn to. That yoga will usually be the best for you.
2. Set a routine
Try to do yoga every day or every other day. The more you do it, the more you’ll like it and the more likely you are to continue it. If you slack once, you’ll want to slack every time.
3. Try new moves
Don’t be afraid to try new moves and asanas. It may be difficult and scary at first but the more you do it, the more familiar you will get with it. You will realize that they only do good to you. Growth is scary but worth it!
4. Join a studio
Joining a yoga studio will develop confidence in you. Being around other people who do yoga will give rise to a sense of familiarity and make you feel comfortable. You will want to go back.
5. Practice makes perfect
The more you practice yoga, the better you will feel. The joy you get when you perfect an asana after hours of practice will give you a rush. It will also calm your body, and free your mind from unnecessary stress of every day life.
