Free Yoga Positions

free yoga positionsThese free yoga positions are a good place for you to start.

There will be many free yoga positions in this section. I will be giving you several basic yoga positions that you can use right away in your yoga training.

I would like to thank Kru Nui (who you can see in the Sun Salutation page of this section) For taking some time to let me photograph her for this site. She is a fantastic yoga teacher and a very good friend.

If any of you are in Thailand and would like yoga lessons from Nui you can feel free to contact her on my contact page, Just fill the form and I will pass on the information.

She gives both Private and Group classes at very good rates. When she has the time, right now she is teaching 6 classes a day 7 days a week.

Now the first thing is the Sun Salutation

The Benefits of Sun Salutation.

  1. It warms up the body and muscles. This is very important because without a proper warm up you risk injury.
  2. It helps to focus the mind and brings you mind to the poses you are doing as you go through, then with this focus it helps you benefit more from the poses you will do after.
  3. It raises your heart rate just enough to put you in the fat burning zone. This will help you loose the fat you want to loose (however remember that even though you are in the zone you still need to burn the calories, if weight loss is the goal I would suggest 30-45 times going through the sun salutation, not just the 3-5 times for a warm up)

To learn the Sun Salutation go to my Sun Salutation Page. There are pictures and descriptions of each pose in order.

Also should you experience any muscle soreness, this post can help.

I also have recently added a page for free yoga exercises that can help with weight loss. On that page I talk about how yoga can be used for weight loss and also yoga routines to help with your training as well. Have a look and I have also recently added a form at the bottom of that page for people who would like to share their yoga routines with our readers.

 

Below are posts to several basic free yoga positions for you to add to your practice.
