[VIDEO] Free 15-Minute Yoga For Beginners
Here’s a little yoga 101… The building blocks of any yoga routine start with the poses and breathing techniques. Today’s 15-minute video uses the most basic stretches, but if at any time you feel pain or if a pose is too challenging, then simply go into downward dog or child’s pose and take a few deep breaths.
Remember, yoga is not one-size-fits all. So the best routine for you will depend on what you want to accomplish, whether it’s greater flexibility, more mental clarity, or improved balance.
The benefits of practicing yoga regularly are more than meets the eye. Of course, it can help you improve posture, stretch muscles, increase relaxation and keep joints lubricated, but studies show that yoga can also help…
- Improve bone density
- Reduce back pain
- Prevent mental decline
- Ease depression and anxiety
- Lower stress levels
As with starting any new exercise routine, it’s important to practice regularly. Start with small, manageable steps…10-15 minutes a week. This way, you’ll be able to create a healthy, life-long habit.
