YOGA FOR BEGINNERS
According to yoga, our emotions, thoughts, desires, confidence and physical symptoms are related to the “chakras”. Practicing yoga may free the energy that is blocked in a chakra. Our body’s major chakras are seven: sahasrara, ajna, vishuddha, anahata, manipura, svadhishthana and muladhara, each one focusing on a different skill or emotion that we wish to develop, like compassion, developing opinions, rejection etc.
Depending on your fitness level and on what you wish to achieve, there are different yoga types to choose from, like ashtanga yoga, hatha yoga, bikram yoga etc. The big advantage of yoga is that it can be easily adjusted to your daily routine, as no equipment other that a mat is needed. You could start with some seated poses to stretch your muscle fibers and develop a tranquil mental state, such as the butterfly, the straddle and the pigeon.
Whether you are looking for an activity to exercise your body or prefer to balance your mind, yoga is the answer that serves both. There must be a reason for its continuous growing popularity, so maybe it is time for you to discover it!
