Yoga Basics: Tips & Tricks
Hi everyone! This is a quick video (about 8 min. 30 seconds) on a few basic elements that help me in my yoga practice! Here is the outline of what I cover in the video:
Yoga is personal. Can't touch your toes? That is just fine! Each person's journey looks different. Your poses will vary in form from yogi to yogi. There a numerous types/styles of this artful way to move the body- Hatha, Power, Kundalini, Sport, Hot Yoga & more! You choose your desired style of yoga, based on your personality & wellness/exercise goals! With each pose, you will grow :)
Vinyasas (routines, flows) can be creative! Take your time and be patient with yourself. Decide what poses are good for YOUR body. Take a pose by pose, day by day. When training for a marathon, you do not run the entire 26 miles to begin your training... you start with a mile. Start with one pose or one short vinyasa.
Breathing into the space to increase the stretch in each pose.
Foot support (Sparthos, Fit Kicks, etc.) to consider.

You decide what you want your yoga-style and journey to look like. :)
Be safe and give yourself room to bloom!
