Taking a Beginner’s Yoga Class

I feel like the absolute last person in the world that has embraced yoga. It’s not that I don’t believe in it–I just haven’t had the time or the desire to commit to a class. But my friend convinced me to attend a few beginner classes last week and I really enjoyed it. I had enough of a good time to think about regularly dropping in on a Wednesday morning class.

This is not me. I wish it was. I don't have that kind of balance. Or that hair.

In the meantime, I’ve been practicing at home with these beginner poses for yoga. They include:

Mountain Pose (super easy)

Tree Pose (a little more challenging)

Downward Facing Dog (sounds weird, but easy to do)

Warrior (sounds tough!)

Cobra (dangerous!)

and my favorite so far…

Corpse Pose (perfect when I’m dead tired at the end of the class).
