6 yoga poses suitable for beginners, you can practice at home.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, I want to go to the yoga studio to practice yoga, but the store is closed. So I bought a yoga mat online and did a simple set of stretching yoga at home. If you want to practice yoga at home but don't know where to start, you can follow the 6 introductory yoga asanas for practice. The movements are very simple and you can practice at home.
Equipment: yoga mat, yoga brick, yoga clothes.
1. Cat stretch
Kneel on the ground, align your hips, and step on your feet on the ground; support the ground with your hands and align your shoulders; inhale and stretch your spine, exhale and lift your feet, lower your head, bow backward, and step on the ground. Repeat this action 10 times.
2. Downward dog pose
Put your hands on the bricks, step on the ground with your feet hip-width apart, retract your abdomen, stretch your sitting bones back, and step on the ground with your heels. Keep this action ten times.
3. Bow step
Step on the ground with your right foot, bend your knees, not over your ankles; step on the ground with your left foot, straighten your legs, and then raise your heels; raise your hands and hold 10 breaths, switch to the other side of the exercise.
4. Locusts variants
Lie down, hold your index finger tightly with both hands, then stretch your legs up and close together. This action can maintain 10 breaths.
5. Dynamic exercise for lower dogs
Start from the downward dog position, move forward to the inclined board position, and then start to the upward dog position, repeat this operation 10 times.
6. Low bow and arrow variants
Step on the ground with your right foot, touch the ground with your left knee, grab the instep with your right hand, then lift your chest and head up, hold 10 breaths, and switch to the sides.
Although the above 6 yoga asanas are simple stretching exercises, they can reduce physical and mental stress. It is recommended that beginners wear soft, breathable and comfortable yoga clothes when practicing, which can make you stretch more convenient and stretch freely during exercise. Wearing light yoga clothes to practice once a day can well relieve the physical and mental discomfort caused by staying at home for a long time.
