One of the most important things to remember when starting yoga is to listen to your body. If a pose feels uncomfortable, stop and rest. It's also important to breathe deeply and slowly throughout each pose. Now let's move on to the first pose, downward facing dog.

Downward facing dog is a great all-around pose. It stretches the entire body, including the back, shoulders, hamstrings, and calves. It also strengthens the arms and legs. To do this pose, start on your hands and knees with your palms flat on the ground and your fingers spread wide. As you exhale, lift your hips up and back, straightening your legs as much as possible. Keep your feet hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent. You should feel a stretch in your hamstrings and calves. Hold the pose for five to ten breaths, then release and return to your starting position.







The next pose is warrior I. Warrior I is a great pose for beginners because it helps improve balance and stability. It also strengthens the legs, ankles, and feet.
