Basics of Yoga
There are three things which are basic ingredients for learning yoga and
these three things are breathing, movement and focus. If you can master
and control these three things then, you will be able to learn yoga very fast.
Deep breathing is the key and more deeply you breathe, more oxygen you
will provide to your muscles and they will be able to adopt the technique.

need to be very fit to exercise these poses effectively. You need to make your
body very flexible to adopt difficult angels easily. Focus will give you enough power to harmonize both breathing and movement which will create an inner peace for you.

legs. Curl your toes and list your hips straight towards ceiling. In this
position, you should look like in a V opposition. Your head should be
hanging down to observe your own legs. You can learn this by watching a
dog stretching after a nap. This pose allows you to strength all of your
bones and muscles equally.
Lay down on your tummy with your legs straight. Place your arm on either
sides and try to lift your chest as high as possible without moving your legs
from straight position. Keep the shoulders wide and with an open chest, try
to lift it even higher by pressing your hands on the floor. Your head should
be straight with the shoulders and this pose can help you to relax your chest
muscles as well as shoulders.
Sit up tall by widening your legs as wide as possible. Placing hands in front
of you and pressing them to widen your shoulders will get you in this pose.

shoulders and lift and spread elbows wide. Flap your arms and legs gently
like butterfly. You can repeat this process 15-20 times easily.
In standing position, get your arms behind you and try to lift yourself on
toe end of your feet. Be careful because most of the people fall while
attempting this posture and you should rise up as much as you can and as
soon as you start to lose balance, stop in that position and hold that
position for 3-5 deep breaths.

Lie on your back in normal position and your arms open and palms facing
skies. This is a total relaxing position and normally it is practiced at the end
of all poses. Just close your eyes in this pose and try to relax. Think of
yourself as a doll which has nothing to move. Stay in this pose for 5-8
minutes in the end of your yoga session.
