As most of you know, I love yoga. One question I frequently get asked is how to get started with yoga. This is understandable as yoga can definitely be intimating. I do a lot of yoga on my own at home now but if you’ve never done it before I highly recommend finding a beginner’s class at a local studio in your area.
Of course, you can read up about the different class types and find diagrams of the poses online (this SparkPeople article is a great resource), but going to a beginner’s/intro class is great because the instructor will be able to teach you the poses and make sure you are doing them correctly. I’m a firm believer that anyone can do yoga – you just have to find the right style for you!
