Sequencing for Essential Beginner Yoga Poses


Sequencing for Essential Beginner Yoga Poses

Walking into a yoga class can be intimidating. It often seems that everyone in the room already knows how to do all of the poses perfectly. And the class moves so fast there isn’t time to stop and ask questions.

This is why we decided to create this library of 8 Essential Beginner Yoga Pose Sequences. We want you to feel confident that you understand the foundations of each of these beginner yoga poses and think these sequences will do just this.

The journey of mastering yoga poses goes something like this: one day a pose is not accessible to you, you practice and it just isn’t happening. But then a few months or years later your body is ready and the pose opens up for you – like magic your body is able to do this once impossible yoga pose.

What happened is you built the foundational strength and body awareness needed to slowly move towards the pose. This is the same journey all those advanced yogis in class have been on – you just can’t see it when you first arrive in class. Rest assured each yogi that looks so effortless in class has spent countless hours practicing just like you. They have tried and failed difficult poses at home, at yoga class – slowly they grew their practice to where it is now.

It all starts with the basics – these are what we think are the 8 Essential Beginner Yoga Poses to start you on your journey.

Learn the Skills You Need to Excel!

Each of the 8 yoga pose sequences is available in a downloadable PDF format. Skim through the entire sequence first, and then practice the poses with the detailed instruction and guidance included.
