Basic Yoga Lessons for Women

If a woman wants a healthy way of life devoid of any strain and stress, she should start her day with yoga.

First things first, when you roll out of your bed, sit onto a mat on the floor and hug your knees to your chest. Then raise your legs in the air and stay bottoms up until your head clears. Next stand up and drop your forehead to your shins until you feel ready to tackle the toothbrush and get on with your day.

Many women pile up an array of small violence’s against themselves from the moment they wake up – caffeine,  cigarettes,  abrasive exercises or no exercise at all.

Your approach to fitness and well-being and to life in general should be non-violent one – working smoothly with concentration and determination at your own pace without competing with anyone else. Don’t be ruthless with yourself and you won’t be ruthless with other people.

Yoga is strenuous, but not painful, and it gives every inch of your body a terrific workout.

Yoga proves particularly helpful in strengthening a body plagued by injury.

Yoga helps you maintain flexibility, build strength and muscle definition and even. Try spending 60 to 90 minutes on your yoga routine, before breakfast, five to six days a week.

Follow the basics mentioned here to have a healthy and balanced life:

Avoid the big seduction to only go with your strong points – like weight-lifting if you’ve got great muscles. It’s the thing that’s hardest for you that you need to work on the most.

Don’t space out during workouts. Use that time to have a private conversation with yourself:

‘How do I feel physically, mentally.’

‘How is my balance and coordination today.’

‘Is there something I should pay special attention to.’

Practice yoga in the early morning or early evening after a light meal or three to four hours after a main meal. If you are hungry before practice, try tea, milk or fruit juice.
