There’s a first time for everything and today’s first will be doing….
Key word here friends… today, not tomorrow, not the next day, but right now.
All firsts are scary.
I vividly remember my first yoga class and it wasn’t pretty…. but I came back to my mat, day after day, week after week and with time, the practice became natural, graceful, and so incredibly rewarding.
Like anything we do in life, the more we practice and stay consistent, the easier and more natural it will become. This is definitely true with yoga.
Before we get into the physical postures and how to do them, I want to stress the points below.
So with all that in mind….. roll out your yoga mat, play some funky tunes, and get moving!
Below are 10 yoga poses for beginners to help inspire, motivate, and clear up any confusion.
