Yoga for Beginners – Preperatory Exercises (Full Body Stretch)


Standing position: Jogging
Stand erect and grip the waists on the sides with the palms, thumb backwards and the forefinger
forward. Raise the knees alternately, and land on the toes. Increase the height of the
raising and the speed gradually, and reduce the same way, breathing through the nostrils.
60 counts each leg, total 120 counts. Relax with the feet apart and knees slightly bent.
Place the palms above the knees with the elbows slightly bent, without putting pressure on
the knee cap. Keep the body loose. Carry on deep rhythmic breathing and relax the whole
body. Full Body Stretch:
Stand erect, placing the palms on the thighs. Slowly raise the hands from the front vertically,
raising the heels and inhaling. Fully stretch the whole body from the toes to the hands.
Slowly bring the hands down, lowering the heels and exhaling. Raising of the hands and
heels with inhalation and lowering of the hands and heels with exhalation should synchronize.
Ten counts.
