poses can start you off on the right path if you do each one of these for
five to ten breaths it also creates a great beginners yoga program for you to
do every day dot here are my picks for the four most important yoga poses for
beginners number one triangle triangle is a wonderful standing posture to
stretch the sides of the waist open up the lungs strengthen the legs and tone
the entire body start standing with your feet one legs length apart open and
stretch your arms to the sides at shoulder height turn your right foot out
90 degrees and your left toes in about 45 degrees engage your quadriceps and
abdominals as you hinge to the side over your right leg place your right hand
down on your ankle shin or knee and lift your left arm up to the ceiling turn
your gaze up to the top hand and hold for five to eight breaths lift up to
stand and repeat on the opposite side tip I like to imagine I’m stuck between
two narrow walls when I’m in triangle pose number two warrior one warrior one
poses are essential for building strength and stamina in a yoga practice
they give us confidence and stretch the hips and thighs while building strength
in the entire lower body and core warrior one is a gentle backbend and a
great pose for stretching open the front body while strengthening the legs hip
buttocks core and upper body for warrior one you can take a giant step back with
your left foot coming towards a lunge then turn your left heel down and angle
your left toes forward 75 degrees lift your chest and press your palms up
overhead step forward and repeat on the opposite leg
number three child’s pose everyone needs a good resting pose and
child’s pose is an awesome one not just for beginners but for yoga practitioners

down dog before bed at night to work out the kinks or any time you need a mental
break and stress / tension relief start on all fours then bring your knees and
feet together as you sit your butt back to your heels and stretch your arms
forward lower your forehead to the floor and let your entire body release hold
for as long as you wish number 4 Mountain Pose Mountain poses the base
for all standing poses it gives you a sense of how to ground into your feet
and feel the earth below you Mountain Pose may seem like simply standing but
there is a ton going on start standing with your feet together press down
through all ten toes as you spread them open engage your quadriceps to lift your
kneecaps and lift up through the inner thighs draw your abdominals in and up as
you lift your chest and press the tops of the shoulders down feel your shoulder
blades coming towards each other and open your chest but keep your palms
facing inwards towards the body imagine a string drawing the crown of
the head up to the ceiling and breathe deeply into the torso hold for five to
eight breaths
