The Best Way To Learn Yoga Poses

Apr 30, 2008
The best way to learn yoga is to practice in a good yoga class with an excellent teacher, you can probably find those by asking your doctor or gym and then look the class up on the internet, most of the time you should be able to find some people who have done a class at that specific centre and write what they have experienced.

Most classes will also give you a test lesson if you ask for it. It is my experience that you will learn allot from such a lesson. You can learn if you like the teacher, if you feel uncomfortable with someone, learning yoga will be very difficult. You can also talk to the other classmates after the lesson and ask them for there experience. And you can learn if the style of yoga fits to your needs, there are many kinds of yoga and you will like some better than the other.

Yoga classes can be found at many different places, there are specific yoga schools and there are classes in health clubs and gyms and even in some community centers you can learn yoga these days. Yoga is still increasingly popular and you should be aware that there are very smart entrepreneurs around that are willing to make a profit from the ignorant and put unqualified teachers in front of the class or ask extreme prices. So be aware and do your research.

There are many kind of yoga styles and there are also many different yoga poses. And each yoga teacher has their own style of teaching. Some just give very relaxing and easy to learn poses others are more intense and some even are fun. You need to find the best kind of class for your needs and the only way is to experience the poses. For the first couple of classes it is smart sit somewhere where you can see the teacher and the other students this way you can look how the poses are done and replicate them.

Sun Salutation

Most beginner classes will start with teaching you the "sun salutation." This is almost one of the standard series of yoga poses used in yoga classes. It is called a moving meditation and it helps to wake up you mind and body to start with the day and all the things to come. It also prepares you for the yoga poses that you will do after the sun salutation. You should focus on your breathing during the series of moves.

Other basic yoga poses are called:

The Cobra: lie down and raise your head and torso up.

Dog and Cat: up on the hands and knees, role the tail bone up and down

Trikonasana - the Triangle: stands with legs in a wide stance. both arms are raised and the body should bend to meet one foot at a time.

Sukhasana - Sit/Easy Position: sit with cross-legged and focus on your breathing

The Corpse: lie on your back on the ground, the goal is conscious relaxation.
