My Experience Today With Vinyasa
The class was mixed with people of different yoga levels. There were beginners, like me, who stuck with the basic movements and poses - than there were intermediate and advanced yogis who attended the class, who focused on their practice by challenging themselves and trusting their bodies with more advanced poses, like arm balancing and headstands.
Although there was a mix of levels in the class, it was not a reason to feel intimidated to try it out. Yoga is about you and your practice at the moment. You focus on the things that you need to do in order to get to the next pose. You challenge your body in a different way.
Trying Yoga As A Form Of Physical Activity
If you are trying yoga for the first time, find a studio around you that gives beginner and basic yoga classes. There are so many different types of yoga to choose from - some fast pace and vigorous while others are slow and gentle. You have to find a yoga type that best suits you. You want to enjoy this activity.
Just to name a few types, there are, Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga. I have tried both and find that I really enjoy them.
- Hatha Yoga goes through different postures and movements to help align your body.
- Vinyasa Yoga focuses on your breathing during the flow through all the postures and positions during the practice.
