Yoga Workouts - An Easy Yoga Sequence for Pain Relief
Posted by Gbfr on October 29th, 2021
If you are thinking about learning yoga to improve your health, there is no better place to start than with a yoga workout. The basic building blocks of yoga are physical poses. These are great ones to begin with because they help you develop physically while practicing yoga. These 10 poses, known as a full yoga workout, are a total body workout. You can practice yoga anywhere, at any time, so you can continue where you left off.
The first exercise, a shoulderstand, is easy to do. Begin by laying on the floor or a mat in a comfortable position. Breathe deeply, then slowly bring your knees up to your chest. In a slow, steady movement, raise your shoulders and your arms over your head, squeezing them together as long as possible. Relax and repeat. This is a good shoulder workout, and you should experiment with this exercise until you feel comfortable, then do the same with each shoulder and each arm.
Next, you will want to try the sun salutation. This yoga workout exercise looks easy enough to do, but there are a few things you should pay attention to make sure you are performing it correctly. First, keep your back straight, with your shoulders in a natural position, not forward. Second, keep your breaths coming in and out, with proper rhythm and frequency. Third, focus on your breathing, taking in breaths as you go back to the starting positions, and exhaling when you come back into the starting positions.
The next yoga workout exercise we are going to discuss is vinyasa flow, which is often included with power yoga routines. Vinyasa flow is also called flow dance, because it is performed in a continuous circular motion. It is a great strength training exercise, because you can get really loose, and be spinning at the same time. It is a great cardiovascular workout, because you will be burning calories, building muscle, stretching your muscles, and even getting fit through core strength training.
For the hamstrings, I recommend doing the hamstrings pose for your yoga workout. The hamstrings pose helps relieve back pain, because you are lifting your quads, which are underneath your body, and helping them to pull against the hip bones. The hamstrings pose is easy to perform, just lift your legs straight out in front of you with your hands on the floor. You will want to close your hands on your thighs to help relieve any strain or tension that you may feel in your lower back.
The last exercise that we are going to look at for our workout is the sun salutation. If you have ever done yoga before, then you know that this pose is simple. All you need to do is to place your hands on your lap, hold onto your yoga mantra (your Sun God), and put your hands together as if you were chanting the Sun God\'s name. Now just inhale deeply, taking long slow breaths, and you will be able to come into your yoga sequence, fully aware of your body and each movement that you make.
