Good Yoga Posture - Learn Some Simple Yoga Poses - Part
Learning how to attain good yoga posture will help you continue
with your yoga practice.
Learning basic good posture habits from the very beginning
is tantamount to your enjoyment, the maximum results from your
efforts, and will help assure you continue with your yoga lifestyle.
Yoga not only fine tunes your balance, it also assists you to
develop calm, makes your
body more elastic to accomplish its full possible range of movement,
and it builds up the strength in all areas of your body.
Chomping at the bit to get started on your new Yoga Lifestyle?!
Instructions for a sample exercise for the eight different
types of yoga poses follow. Be
sure to focus on proper placement of your body parts highlighted,
breathing, and proper holds and release.
Before we begin with your yoga instruction, however, it goes
without saying, that if you have any health conditions that
are or should be seen by a doctor, do so before attempt-
ing yoga moves or any type of exercise. And please use common
sense -- undue pain
is not gain --!!
Do not perform Yoga Poses which reach beyond your capabilities.
Some discomfort may be expected during an exercise regimen when
your muscles and body aren't accustomed
to certain ranges of motions, contractions or extensions. But
pain is another story.
Yoga is not a competition. It is a personal connection between
you and your own body
with your mind and spirit. What others are able to accomplish
should be of no conse-quence to you...except for joy of celebration
with them. There is no standard pace expected. What is right
for your body is the right pace for you!
If you push yourself too fast or too far, you can injure yourself,
which is counter to your goal, and you are likely to abandon
any further attempt to practice what millions have
found to be their life saver.
It is tantamount that you listen to your body...and what is
is telling you...and know your-
self and your limits. Don't be
in a rush to move on to the next level. Learn each move well..give
your body its rightful due in moving itself to its next level
You will be reaping the benfits of your yoga practice from
the beginning and notice more and more the strides you are making.
And proper performance and smart performance of your yoga regimens
will allow you to have FUN with them! And that's a wonderful
benefit in itself!
That said, let's move on ...and start the fun!
