A Beginner’s Guide to Yoga

yoga So everybody in your life, including your pregnant friend, 65-year-old mom and teen-aged niece, are all doing yoga . After listening to them extol the benefits that this ancient Indian practice has had on their stressed out minds and seeing the proof in their new lean yoga bodies , it is time that you discover firsthand what the yoga buzz is all about.

But before you lift off into a headstand in the middle of your kitchen, read our Beginner’s Guide to Yoga so that you’ll be in the know-how as you roll out your mat and join the millions of Americans practicing yoga .

Benefits

The word “yoga” is Sanskrit for “to yoke” or “to join,” most specifically referring to yoga’s ability to connect the mind, body and spirit.

In understanding the true definition of yoga, the benefits of this spiritual practice can therefore be experienced on these three levels of the human experience. From reduced stress to improved strength, balance and flexibility, and to greater sense of life’s purpose, the benefits of yoga are far-reaching.

In fact, it is not just your friend or cousin who can attest to yoga’s rewards, but the medical community is listening as well. For instance, the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), is investigating how yoga might help a variety of medical conditions including high blood pressure, chronic low-back pain, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, HIV and multiple sclerosis. And yoga’s benefits have already been shown in those suffering from back pain, depression and weight issues.

  • Improved awareness of how behaviors affect how we feel, look and act

What to Wear

As if the benefits of yoga aren’t enough, the cute clothing is also a powerful lure. The yoga fashion industry is almost as thriving as the yoga industry itself. But until you know that yoga is a practice you want to stick with, don’t blow your paycheck on yoga attire, even if those $80 bootcut yoga pants rock your world. Yoga wear can be pricey but the good news is that many mass retail chains like Old Navy and Target offer comfortable and stylish yoga clothing for reasonable prices. yoga

Show up to your yoga class wearing comfortable but not too comfortable clothing. Yoga pants, capri-style workout leggings and shorts will all work just fine. Fitted tank tops, sports bras and for guys, T-shirts will work well for top selections. Avoid wearing super tight or overly loose clot...
