Namaskaram (Hello), Many people have asked me about how to start yoga from a beginner’s level, when you don’t have much understanding about it. What are do’s and don’ts of it and how to do yoga? So, my very first tip to you all is that at least start doing yoga because persuading mind to begin is the most struggling job. Even if somebody has started practicing then also he may face hundreds of issues like ‘this method is right or wrong’, ‘whether I’m following the correct process or not’ etc. These issues will engross him so much that he’ll get confused and will quit yoga. So, take it easy and focus on the basic things that you know, and have confidence of not making mistakes in them. May be you have learnt well from some person or the videos Though, everyone is doing it but even then only take calculated risk when you follow videos. When you start doing yoga, listen to your body and pay attention on its needs and capacity to handle. even if other person might be instructing to do an exercise 100 times but ask yourself, “can I do that much? If not, how much can I do?” There is no need to worry about the sequencing of exercises in the beginning as it has less importance to start with. The important thing is that at least you have started the yoga. Gradually, with practice, your interest will develop There is no other way out to develop your interest. Second method is to listen the content related to yoga Like you listen to my videos related to yoga regularly. you cannot, anyways, listen to all videos in one go. if you think that first you’ll listen to all videos and then will start doing it some day. That day will never come. as gradual implementation of exercises help body movements even if body movements are very less, still it will be very beneficial in future. Otherwise, you’ll become lethargic thinking I’ve heard enough and now will not do anything. So you have to keep all this in mind. Now, every body part has its specific needs. Muscles require movements, Nerves ask for stretching. Similarly, our brain’s requirement is oxygen. Likewise, every body organ has specific needs. Some require stretching, some running or activity, others may require oxygen. So, overall if you do some mixed exercises you will see very good effect of it on your body Another method for a beginner is that he should go to a mentor to seek guidelines But the irony is that we have very less yoga teachers and professionals around the world who have the right knowledge. Good health is a basic requirement for survival, but we don’t have right people to share our problems. So if you are also facing the same issue of not having any mentor then take small calculated risks. Listen to your inner voice and take some steps. Even if you’ll do it bit wrong for a few days, Its okay. Also do a self analysis your body will give signs itself. If you feel light after doing some exercise then its good If you feel any cramps in neck or back after doing any exercise then its better to leave such exercise. Besides this, there are some basic Abstinence, that you can check along with it, like person with backache shouldn’t bent forward; hernia patient shouldn’t bent backward. Check the action that can harm potentially. For example, precaution to take after surgery or pregnancy These basic rules are necessary to follow. Besides this, don’t get confused in other things and start yoga. It is very important and valuable in yoga to start doing it. Instead of thinking that first I’ll become perfect or if somebody will teach me face to face, then only I’ll do it. Don’t think like this. Just start doing it. Namaskaram (Good bye)
