Yoga is one of those workouts that is much easier said than done. You may think it’s all stretching and relaxing until you finally try it out for yourself! As relaxing as it is, I thought I’d come up with a few tips to make sure you get as much out of your workout as you can… and to make it a little less hard on your body! Chelsea Crockett - Yoga Pose

  • Balance is one of the hardest parts about yoga. You have to be able to hold the poses in order to get anything out of the exercise. This is what the meditation and relaxation is for! Once you’re 100% focused, it’s easier to concentrate on your balance.
  • Breathing is one of the most crucial steps when it comes to relaxation. Of the few times I’ve actually done yoga, knowing when and how to breathe is very important! Take a few breaks throughout your workout to simply sit, breathe, and relieve stress.
  • One of the things I notice when I do yoga is pain in my wrists. A lot of the poses require using your hands to hold your body weight up. If they start bothering you, use your fingers more than your palm to hold you up. This will alleviate some of the pain!
  • Make sure you have the proper attire and equipment. A mat, water, and comfy/stretchy clothes are important not to forget! A sticky mat that has some grip will make your workout easier and comfier to hold poses.

Let me know what other tips you have for yoga beginners :)!
