Home yoga from scratch: 16 poses for beginners
Where to begin
So, you have decided, but do not know what and how to do. Pick up loose, light clothes that will not hamper movement. For comfortable performance of asanas, it is advisable to purchase a special mat or karemat.
The place for sessions should be clean, quiet and bright enough. Ask your relatives not to disturb you at this time, remove your pets from the room, turn off the phone, put on ear-rings. The temperature in the room is very important.
The most difficult thing is to make training systematic. But, try to get up in the morning for 15 minutes early and you will immediately see the result.Choose the best schedule for yourself - every day or every other day, but stick to it strictly and never miss.
You will also need a personal instructor. In this case, a good disk or video lessons on the Internet is enough. In extreme cases, yoga books for beginners will do.
It is best to engage in the morning, which will provide relaxation, energy and bright mind throughout the day.
Yoga is only useful on an empty stomach. If you really want to eat, drink a cup of tea, juice, milk or water. It is also allowed to eat a light breakfast - apple, yogurt, soup.
It is worth paying attention to the fact that taking a shower immediately after a session is strictly prohibited, since asanas change the blood circulation. The prohibitions include massage, sauna and exercise.
With the basics you met, now turn to classes. Start with a warm-up to prepare the muscles for work. Then move smoothly to the stretch.
