The Ultimate Beginners Guide To Yoga
It is proven that Yoga Gents can provide physical, mental and spiritual benefits. Yoga is an ancient practice with roots tracing back to India. The principles of Yoga are known as the eight limbs. These eight practices, or limbs, represent the different aspects of yoga such as body postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), meditation (dhyana), study of scriptures (svadhyaya) and more. As a beginner, it might be hard to grasp all these terms at first but rest assured you will soon learn them along the way. For now, let’s focus on what a few of those terms mean. Pranayama which means control of life force through breathing techniques has been said to purify the mind and emotions, relieve fatigue and even cure some chronic illnesses. Dhyana refers to concentration during meditation. It helps one achieve detachment from worldly thoughts and feelings; this leads one to enlightenment or self-realization. Svadhyaya translates into self-study which is done by introspection in order to better understand oneself – with this knowledge one can then live in harmony with others.
How Will I Feel After My First Class?
You will feel as though you can take on the world after your first class. After an invigorating workout, your stress levels will be lowered, your mood will be elevated, and you’ll feel better about yourself. You may even think about joining a Yoga Gents class on a weekly basis. You won’t regret trying it! It’s also great because you get to meet people who are looking to make lifestyle changes. There’s no judgment if you’re not that flexible or haven’t done much exercise in a while. Your body will let go of tension that has been building up in muscles and joints that have not been exercised in a while. It can help with symptoms like back pain, headache or migraine relief, depression, high blood pressure relief, insomnia relief and more!
What Will Happen In My First Class?
-Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a smile and a warm welcome.

-We begin by taking some time to set up our Yoga Gents mats side by side in the center of the studio floor.
-Once everyone has taken their spot on their mat, I’ll guide us through a brief moment of meditation before we start to move and stretch.
-The poses are broken down step by step so it’s easy to follow along at home or in person! And don’t worry about anyone looking at you because everyone has their eyes closed for this segment.
-As always, when it’s time to come out of the pose I’ll offer guidance on how deep or long to stay in any given posture before transitioning into another one.
Clothing, Gear & Things to Avoid
The following asanas are easy to do, beginner-friendly poses that may help with anxiety and tension. The list is not exhaustive but I hope it provides a starting point.
Start by sitting down in a comfortable cross-legged position, either on the ground or a mat. You can also lie down on your back with your legs slightly bent, feet flat on the ground or up near your buttocks – whichever is more comfortable. Extend your arms to the side of you and close your eyes. Focus on breathing deeply through your nose into the belly, feeling it rise as you inhale and fall when you exhale. If thoughts enter your mind just notice them without judgment then continue focusing on the breath. Stay like this for 5 minutes or longer if it feels good to you Yoga Gents. Afterward get up gently and make yourself some tea or water before moving on to the next step in this practice.
Do you want to learn how yoga has helped me?
Anxiety has been plaguing me my entire life, but I was able to control it enough to be successful in my career as a lawyer. But at home, I would be constantly stressed out; worried about everything under the sun while wondering why no one could seem to understand what was wrong with me. Yoga changed all of that for me – its nonjudgmental acceptance allowed me some space away from my problems so I could see them clearly for what they were: fleeting feelings that would soon pass and be replaced by new ones.
