Yoga for Beginners – Starting a Yoga Practice

Making the first step onto the yoga mat might be the most challenging part for some beginners to yoga practice.

You might think: Enter the studio full of unknown people? What if my body is not flexible enough? What if It’s already too late for me to start?

However, it’s never too late to introduce yoga practice into your daily routine, regardless of age, physical condition, or health concerns. Reread these reassuring words.

Yoga practice is not about body shape. It is about the shape of your mind and life. You will likely be surprised that some yoga studios may not even have mirrors, so people can focus their attention inward rather than on how they and the people around them look while posing.

Yoga practice is a mirror, allowing you to look at yourself from within. Moreover, you will probably not be the only person your age — nor the only new person in the class.

Yoga is well known for its holistic approach to health and well-being. It’s a science and healthy practice combined with spiritual discipline and art.
