I would love to get into yoga, but I am not in the best of shape, and I find yoga to be difficult for the out-of-shape beginner. Some of the poses are downright uncomfortable for me to be in because I’m not as limber as I feel I need to be. Any yoga fans have any advice for me?
I started yoga in the comfort of my home with a Yoga for Dummies DVD. It helps walk you through the poses and gives you alternative ways to do the poses if you aren’t as strong as you’d like. Yoga is about movement and breathing. So keep it up, and the poses will come to you.
I had no idea that they had a Yoga for Dummies DVD! I love the “For Dummies” series, and I have many of their books, so I’m thrilled. I’m especially thrilled if it offers alternate poses for people who aren’t as strong. That is so cool!
Yoga gets much easier the more you do it, but the key is getting started. Don’t feel intimidated. You can do it!! As others have said, there are alternate poses for beginners. And if you stick with it, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you start to feel stronger and more limber. Good luck!
I tried Yoga but I was terrible at it. I felt uncomfortable all the time. I thought people were always looking at me and laughing. I stopped after a few months. You need a lot more coordination then I have.
