If you are looking for Yoga for Beginners, this is where you need to start. Iyengar yoga teaches you how to work effectively with yoga props. In Yoga with Lin and Leo, we teach you how to bring yoga poses into your everyday life.
Learn to use your breath to open your chest. Regular yoga practice has been shown in studies to help with back pain, shoulder pain and neck and hip problems. Yoga poses help you to connect with your breath which can assist with problems of anxiety, low mood and depression. When you are more experienced, you can start to develop your awareness of the breath and learn Pranayama (breathing) techniques, which in turn can develop into meditation; helping to develop mindfulness and a more tranquil approach to life.
Of course a yoga workout can be very energetic and will therefore help with weight loss. However, it is the mental attitude that yoga cultivates, which helps you to develop a good relationship with yourself, your body and how you chose to treat it.
The yoga poses (asanas) we teach in this yoga sequence are: Sukhasana, Tadasana (Mountain Pose), Urdhva Hastasana in Tadasana, Virabhadrasana 2 (Warrior 2 Pose), Parsvakonasana, (Extended Side Angle Pose), Dandasana (Staff or Stick Pose), Virasana, (Hero Pose), Bharadvajasana 1 (seated twist).
