Learn Yoga - Step by Step

The advantages of Yoga are well known to everyone who has ever tried the discipline but if you are new to Yoga let me recap. Yoga may be a fantastically popular and effective way of strengthening you physically also as mentally and spiritually. This last 'spiritual' aspect may turn some people off, but it isn't something that must be related to religion. Really the simplest alternate word for the spiritual strength of Yoga is contentment or happiness. It allows you to be a calmer person and better off with yourself. Put like that it sounds pretty great doesn't it?


So you've probably heard a touch about Yoga and wondered what it's all about. you almost certainly have a couple of preconceptions and perhaps a picture of an old man with an extended beard sitting within the position springs into your head in automatic association with the word. Let's undergo step by step what you'll expect during a typical Yoga session.

Step One: The Introduction and Preparation.

Most Yoga classes begin during a standing position. There are both mental and physical reasons for this and that they are closely connected. The standing position is the most natural Human position there's. Leonardo Leonardo produced a famous scientific picture of the symmetry of the physical body when it's in its a natural standing position. The outstretched arms and legs can have an ideal circle drawn around them and this is often true of everyone no matter their height or weight. What this suggests is that a standing pose comes naturally to us - we aren't worried about getting it wrong and that we can concentrate on the state of the body. Breathing exercises are going to be a key part of the nice and cozy up stage for your routine. this is often the sole time in your life you'll be 'taught' to breath and it is a skill which allows people to revive calm to their bodies and thoughts.

Step Two: the most Routine

This is often the part of your Yoga session which can vary the best counting on what sorts of Yoga you're learning. While the individual exercises you'll be doing are getting to be quite different, the character of them is going to be very similar. this may mean getting into certain poses and positions and holding those poses to permit the body to stretch out muscles and muscle groups that in many cases haven't been given much attention during the week. Some Yoga teachers will ask you about the energy points or chakras. These are important junctions in your body where congestion occurs and stretching them out allows energy to flow freely around your body.

Step Three: Ending the Session

While the most session is about releasing pent up energies, this stage of your Yoga workout is all about allowing that energy to flow around your body. many of us have trouble with brooding about some strange mystic force that's flowing through you and driving it to certain parts of your body. If you're one among them just mentally substitute the word 'energy' with the word 'blood'. we all know that the work of blood is to hold nutrients and oxygen around our body and that we know that if any a part of our body is lacking during this supply that we'll become ill, so it isn't an enormous stretch to consider blood because the mystic energy force that brings health around our body and exercises like Yoga as being the tactic of ensuring the graceful and successful flow of that blood.
