Yoga Poses for Beginners

Perhaps, you might have seen people doing complex yoga on TV, making you feel discouraged to try it out. However, it should please you to know that there are yoga poses for beginners like you. Such poses would help you to get started and create some familiarity.

  • Mountain Pose

Stand up while keeping your feet together. Keep your shoulders relaxed and make sure that the weight is distributed evenly in your sides, arms and soles. After taking a deep breath, raise your hands over your head – with palms facing each other. Keep your arms straight and with your fingertips, reach out towards the sky.

  • Warrior Pose

Stand at attention – legs a few feet apart. Afterwards slightly turn your left foot in and turn your opposite foot out at about 90°. Relax your shoulders as you slowly bring your hands to your hips. Extend your arms out to the side (palms facing downward).

  • Child’s Pose

Start by kneeling on the ground (bring feet together). After that, slowly bring your upper body down with your hands over your head having the palm of your hands facing the floor. Touch the floor using your hand, stretch arms wide out and make sure that your chest and belly touches your legs.

  • Chair Pose

Stand up and put your feet together. If in case you have a stiff body, then you can also put them apart of about the width of your hip. Then, bend your knees and imagine that you are sitting in a chair. Raise your arms up until it touches your ears.

You can start with these basic poses and then modify it, if you so choose. You can also take it to a higher level, after you have improved yourself or feel confident enough to handle more intensity!
