How to start your yoga journey?
Starting yoga can be a wonderful journey towards physical and mental well-being. Here are some steps to help you get started:
Set Your Intention
Determine why you want to practice yoga. Whether it’s for flexibility, stress relief, fitness, or spiritual growth, clarifying your intention will help guide your practice.
Find a Suitable Space
Choose a quiet and comfortable space to practice where you can move freely without distractions. You may use a yoga retreat like Insight Resort, yoga center, community center, or even your own home.
Start with Basic Poses
Begin with beginner-friendly poses that focus on building strength, flexibility, and balance. Some common poses for beginners include Mountain Pose, Downward-Facing Dog, Warrior I, and Child’s Pose.
Take It Slow
Listen to your body and take your time. Start with shorter sessions, such as 15-30 minutes, and gradually increase the duration as you build strength and endurance. Remember that yoga is a practice of self-compassion and progress at your own pace.
Focus on Breath Awareness
Pay attention to your breath throughout your practice. Deep, mindful breathing helps calm the mind, increase body awareness, and promote better relaxation. Practice breathing exercises such as Ujjayi breathing or alternate nostril breathing.
Consistency is key to reaping the benefits of yoga. Aim to practice yoga at least 2-3 times per week or as frequently as your schedule allows. Even short daily sessions can be beneficial.
Listen to Your Body
Honor your body’s capabilities and limitations. Never force or strain yourself into a pose. If something doesn’t feel right, modify or skip the pose altogether.
Stay Hydrated and Eat Mindfully
Drink plenty of water before and after your practice to stay hydrated. Eat a light meal a few hours before practicing yoga to avoid feeling too full or uncomfortable during your session.
Seek Guidance and Progression
As you become more comfortable with the basics, consider seeking guidance from an experienced yoga teacher to help you progress and deepen your practice. They can provide personalized advice and teach you more advanced poses and techniques.
When practicing yoga, there are several accessories that can enhance your experience
A yoga mat provides a stable and comfortable surface to practice on, cushioning your joints and providing grip for better balance and stability during poses
Blocks or Bricks
Yoga blocks or bricks are props that can be used to modify and support various poses. They assist in achieving proper alignment, especially for those who may have limited flexibility or need additional support.
Yoga straps are helpful for participants who have difficulty reaching certain poses due to limited flexibility or tightness in muscles. Straps can be used to extend your reach and hold poses comfortably.
Bolsters are firm yet supportive pillows that can be used to provide comfort and help in relaxing during restorative poses or meditation. They can also assist in deepening stretches
Quality yoga blankets can provide additional cushioning, warmth, and support during your practice. They can be used to sit on, support the body, cushion joints, or to provide warmth during final relaxation
Eye pillows are used for relaxation and to block out light during restorative poses or meditation. They can help to calm the mind and promote deep relaxation
