How Yoga Keeps You Fit and Healthy

Tips for Starting Yoga. We recommend a few things to keep in mind: 

  • Go for a style that suits your body type: Yoga classes and asanas may differ for people with different body types. Some may only focus on meditation and deep breathing, whereas others might focus on rigorous and strenuous yoga moves.
  • You and your body type are unique: Understand this: Yoga is not only about flexibility. Don’t try and idealise images and postures as presented in glossy health magazines. Those are people who have attained this kind of flexibility after years of practice and fitness routine. Go at your own pace.
  • Maintain your own pace: There is no need to rush into any kind of asana or yoga pose too soon. Use straps, blocks or other tools to suit your needs and requirements. Ask your yoga instructor for help and make sure you take adequate rest and proper precautions.
  • Listen to your body: Don’t force yourself into any of the asana. Try and read your body signals and stop when you think you can’t take it anymore.
