The first thing one learns in Yoga is that it’s all about breathing.
To begin your Yoga practice, please pay attention to your breath. You are not looking for anything in particular.
Once you have learned to breathe, there are numerous outlets for learning the asanas (poses) of Yoga:
DVDs, books, and online videos are great for getting started and releasing some of the beginner jitters in the privacy of your home. Studios and private instructors offer in-person attention and community, as well as guidance for a safe practice.
Most studios offer trial rates and beginner packages at affordable prices. These are specifically to allow access to anyone wanting to get started in Yoga. One may find a beginner package such as $55 for one month of unlimited Yoga.
In the meantime, if you are looking for a simple flow to get started, a common flow is Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar). There are numerous variations, but generally they start with Sun Salutation A (this is a slight variation), Sun Salutation B, or Sun Salutation C.
As always, please practice caution and consult your doctor when beginning any physical activity.
