Yoga Positions



If you want to learn the yoga positions for beginners, you can learn it easily at home or at school where yoga is taught.

1. Maximizing Your Potential

One of the more important tips for beginners is to let go of your ego. In order to fully maximize your yoga experience, you must forget about such things as impressing your teacher and classmates. One of the central ideas of yoga is self-study. To fully study yourself, you must try not to compare yourself to the teacher or other students, but instead, you should strive to maximize your own learning and improvement during each class and practice session.

2. Practice Makes Perfect

Practice your positions often. Yoga offers many benefits to your mind, body, and spirit, and these benefits may be maximized with regular practice on your own in addition to your classes and with your teacher. As a beginner, it is especially important that you practice so that you may see and feel the benefits early on. With yoga, the frequency with which you work on your positions is as important if not more so than the length of the practice sessions. Try to find a few minutes each day to do a little bit of yoga.

Make sure that you practice your poses correctly. Most anything you read, watch, or listen to about yoga will tell you to practice often, but one of the yoga tips that sometimes get skipped is that you must practice right. You want to extend yourself though your practice sessions so that you become better. Even if you dislike some poses, you should still practice them. Such a practice will be more productive and give you the feeling of self-assurance that you seek with yoga.

Meditation plays an important role in yoga, and many western yoga establishments present the practice in a way that can help those who don't practice Hinduism. Yoga is a very complex subject which can mean different things for different people.

There was a study done at the Preventive Medicine Research Institute in Sausalito, California. This study found people who regularly practiced yoga and meditation, exercised and watched their diet lost more weight than those who exercised, and ate a balanced diet, but did not practice yoga

Benefits of Yoga

Yoga through meditation works remarkably to accomplish harmony and helps the mind work in synchronization with the body. These enormous physical benefits are just a “side effect” of this powerful practice. What yoga does is harmonize the mind with the body and these results in real quantum benefits. How often do we find that we are unable to perform our activities properly and in a satisfying manner because of the confusions and conflicts in our mind weigh down heavily upon us? In fact yoga = meditation, because both work together in achieving the common goal of unity of mind, body and spirit which can lead to an experience of eternal bliss that you can only feel through yoga. The meditative practices through yoga help in achieving an emotional balance through detachment. It has been found that the body which may have started doing yoga being a inflexible one may experience a quite remarkable flexibility in the end on those parts of the body which have not been consciously worked upon…

Secret of Yoga Posture

Physical Yoga is a combination of different postures. Every pose of Yoga is derived from a natural phenomenon, it is evident from there sanskrit names. People often do not understand a posture because they do not know sanskrit or because original name and meaning of the pose has been changed.

Each Yoga posture has its own secrets which are revealed to us only if we learn about its actual name and its meaning. Each postures name and pose is an analogy to some natural phenomenon. If we understand the name and also watch that natural phenomenon we'll understand how it is to be performed.

Yoga is quiet close to nature and yoga postures bring us close to nature without leaving our present physical location. If we perform each Yoga posture in its intended form then we can feel Yoga in our day to day life. Yoga postures are not like exercise routines which are just limited to physical well being. Yoga postures are much more than that (how much more/less depends on each person).
