Yoga for Beginners

Interested in taking up yoga but don't kow where to start? We've got you covered. Consider this Yoga 101.

Beginners Yoga Styles

First, you'll probably want to check out our beginners yoga guides to the different types of yoga, such as Bikram, Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, Kundalini, Iyengar, Anusara, Prenatal, Restorative, Kripalu, and Jivamukti. The pace and postures vary within each style of yoga, so you'll want to find out which style is best for you.

Beginners Yoga Poses

Though there are numerous yoga poses, some of the most fundamental poses (which are also beginner poses) are Downward Facing Dog, Warrior I and Warrior II, Side Plank, and Child's Pose. You can check out our Yoga Poses for Beginners Intro Guide to get started.

Places to Practice

As you start yoga, a class is probably the best way to go, but the great thing about yoga is that you can practice it anywhere — at a studio, on the beach, or even at home.

In the end, yoga is all about physical and spiritual health -- and anyone can practice yoga, in any place they choose to, as long as they can breathe — or in yoga terms — Pranayama!
