Yoga for the Beginners Group

By on April 27, 2015

This is the group for people who have never practiced yoga before, who are weak and infirm /sick in any way and thus unable to do the difficult asanas.

This group consists of elementary techniques designed to prepare the body and mind for asanas and meditative postures. These asanas are not inferior in any way to the advanced asanas and are very useful in improving physical health. PawanMuktAsana series and premeditative and meditative postures are also part of this group.

Relaxing mentally and physically is very important before commencing the asanas and perform Shavasana for achieving this state. In Shavasana:

  • Lie flat on your back, legs separated with hands on the sides- palms facing upwards.
  • Feel your body; become aware of your breathing and release all tension from the body.
  • Count your breaths- breathe in a normal and spontaneous manner.
  • Do not suppress any thoughts-watch al thoughts without getting involved.
  • Relax.
  • After sometime move your arms and get up.

The aim of this is to guide those people who wish to select a program to suit their specific needs. People afflicted with specific ailments should refer to the section on yogic therapy and plan their therapy program accordingly. Individual guidance from a trained qualified yoga teacher is definitely more beneficial for selecting your program.

  • PawanMuktAsana Series from Exercise 1 to 16 (avoid exercise 6&10) – to be performed slowly & with fill concentration.
