Are you learning yoga for the first time? Well, let us inform you that it is a great choice. This activity helps you find your inner peace and that in a very subtle way. The poses of yoga are very comfortable and you would love to follow them closely. Remember, you’re going to start an exercise that is both spiritual and physically very beneficial. So even if you start small, you will benefit a long way through beginners Yoga. But to ensure that you carry out the yoga practises for long, remember to follow these basic tips or keep in mind when you are practising this activity.
Understand the concept of Yoga first
Every beginner’s Yoga guide will advise you to first get acquainted with its true meaning. Yoga basically means union in the Sanskrit language. So, when you practise this activity, you are uniting your soul and body power and benefiting your entire persona through these poses. You should also be aware that there are no restrictions on the time, day, and week and hours you dedicate to it. Basically, the more, the better! And yes, you don’t bear any side effects of practising yoga unless you are doing it drastically wrong!
Release the fear and expectations
If you have any fear or misconceptions about yoga in your mind, then we suggest you release them all. You are only bounding yourself by an unpractical expectation that you will be able to lose ten kgs by performing yoga in a month or something like this, then you are never going to gain the actual benefits of this activity. If you have some expectations, release them. Even with the stereotypes and prejudices in your mind about this activity, it’s time for you to leave them all before starting this activity.
Understand the core idea of yoga
Almost all of the beginner’s yoga poses involve the stillness of your entire body and making them work together. You have to understand this core idea before you start practising it regularly. If your body parts don’t coordinate when you practice yoga, you will not benefit entirely from this activity.
Get a habit of stillness
Yoga involves getting acquainted with stillness and peace and managing your power of breathing. This practice improves your concentration power a lot. If you want to practise it correctly, you have to get a habit of staying still peaceful and relaxed for a long period of time.
Start with easy poses
Beginner’s yoga always starts with easy poses. We suggest you stick to them. Once you learn to ace them perfectly, trying the complex ones will become easier and quicker.
Apart from all these, remember to get some good guidance to practice yoga perfectly. Since you are a newbie, you might not know everything correctly about this practice and you are bound to make some mistakes. And who knows, you might leave Yoga entirely because of these errors and their effects on your body and soul. So, start with slowly, under expert training and stay long, benefitting from yoga!

Very well said. I have just started yoga and I have been going to a good trainer and i can see the difference. Learning online or trying to do something on your own can do more harm than good if we aren’t careful about the postures and stretch.
You said it all 🙂
I agree with your point, many start quickly and even leave practicing yoga more quickly. The reason being lack of guidance and rushing to do many aasan at an early stage .
