Yoga for Beginners – Tips for starting Yoga

Lets start with a general question but unimportant & valid question – Firstly, what is yoga? Yoga is an ancient Indian physical, mental and spiritual discipline. Its meditative practices aim to improve health and mindful awareness. There are many different kinds of yoga, each varying in difficulty and technique. So, the first thing you’ll need to do when starting out is to choose the right practice that suits your goals.

We you learn to become yoga instructor is as much important as deciding you want to be becoming BAMS Doctor (Ayurveda ) or MBBS Doctor ( Allopathy ).

Now let me share you some important and useful tips before you starting your yoga practice.

Starting a new workout regime can be intimidating. Starting an entirely different style of exercise, like yoga, can be even more of a challenge. Here are some tips on getting started with a daily yoga routine that will bring you closer to finding your chi.
Choose a Style of Yoga Before Starting Yoga.

If you have never done yoga before I suggest starting with a Hatha or Vinyasa class. Hatha is a popular, basic practice. Its classes tend to be slower in pace and include the basic yoga poses. Vinyasa is another popular form of yoga that focuses on synchronizing physical movement with breathing techniques, while also including a series of sun salutations and faster paced poses.
Find a Yoga Studio Before Starting Yoga.

Once you have chosen the type of yoga you will practice, you will need to find a class to attend.Start by asking friends, searching online and browsing through newspapers and health and fitness magazines. If you already belong to a gym, great! They often have beginners classes scheduled into their group fitness programs.
What to Bring to a Class When Starting Yoga

When attending a yoga class you shouldn’t have to bring anything apart from yourself, a bottle of water and comfortable clothing, as most studios rent out mats and provide towels. But, if you’re feeling unsure, it doesn’t hurt to call the studio beforehand and check what you will need to bring.
Etiquette Tips for Starting Yoga

It’s important to familiarize yourself with yoga etiquette before attending a class. This will make you feel more comfortable when you start out. Firstly, you will have to remove your shoes to participate in the class. To keep the space hygienic, make sure you remove yours outside before stepping into the practice room.

As yoga is a peaceful meditation practice, it is vital you turn your phone off. If you forget and it does go off during the class, the best thing to do is to own up and quickly switch it off so it minimizes disruption. Arrive to class 10 minutes early to secure a mat, and space in the studio. Most studios will not let you in if you arrive more than 10 minutes late.
Tips for Eating Before Starting Yoga

Avoid large meals before you attend a class. You will stretch your entire body in a yoga class, including your internal organs. Practicing on a full stomach can cause discomfort and nausea, so try to avoid eating less than two hours beforehand.

Hopefully, with these tips you’re fully prepared to start your new yoga routine. For more exercise advice like this, visit us at
