Have You Ever Considered Trying Yoga?

Aug 17, 2007
Yoga is a type of body sculpting that can be done at home, or at the gym.

For best results, use a book or a video so you can see and watch the poses as they happen. The correct stance, the correct way to hold your body is going to make all the difference in the toning of your body. As with all types of exercise, there are beginner levels and upper levels - always look for books and tapes that fit your personal levels of fitness.

Before starting any exercise routine, you should stretch out on the floor. Stretching your muscles will help you to avoid any injuries while you are performing yoga.

The toning of your body can cause strains and pulled muscles if you are not careful to stretch and warm up your muscles before starting your routine for the day. Stretching takes just a few seconds and will save you pain in the long run.

Think about what your body is telling you. If you feel that you are too tired after a yoga routine, perhaps you should stay at the beginner levels a little longer. Yoga is going to tone and strengthen your body. If your body is not in tune, if it is not toned, you will find upper levels much more difficult to accomplish. Use lower levels of yoga until you feel completely comfortable with all the positions that you are undertaking.

One simple yoga practice is the act of sitting at the edge of your chair with your back held straight. If you do put your arms up on the desk, remember that your back position is really important. Sit with your back straight and your legs out in front of you, and your feet flat on the floor. This will be difficult for the first few minutes, but as you continue practicing over a few days, you will be able to sit better, longer, and your back will be much stronger for it.

Exercising in the home can be done in the living room, or in the basement, even in your own bedroom. What you need is a space that is about five foot square so you have a fair bit of room to move around without bumping into furniture. You can easily find space in your home by comparing what furniture you have in what area, and then putting a mat or a carpet down on the area for your comfort.

If you are going on holiday, you can use the gym or the exercise room in the hotel as an area to perform your yoga. Virtually all gyms will have a television and a vcr or dvd player. If you find a time when others are performing yoga, this will help you in keeping to your schedule. You can use the dvd or vcr player to insert your tapes and get busy performing your exercise routine.

And there you have it: I hope that this article has given you some of the information you need to start yoga.
