Online Yoga Lessons - Free Yoga Videos
By Renee Lawrence

If you have heard about yoga, but felt too shy to join a class, you can learn how to practice yoga by watching free online videos. It may be too intimidating for you to visit a studio, but when you go online you can get yoga tips without having to face anyone. If you have ever watched a yoga class, you might think that everyone there already knows all of the poses. This may prove to be too overwhelming for a beginner. If you are curious about learning yoga, you can go online and read information about how to start your yoga practice.

Health experts recommend some form of daily meditation to help lower your stress level. Yoga includes meditation along with stretching and muscular development. The focus in yoga is on breathing so you when you practice yoga, you will learn how to relax and breathe deeply. When you watch some free online yoga videos, you can see how the poses should be done and how long each pose should be held. You can also see the correct way to stretch your muscles. Yoga can be confusing because yoga instructors will be calling out different positions during a class. It could be hard to attend a class and watch an instructor and do a pose all at the same time.

When you practice yoga, you will want to select one of many yoga mats on the market. There are cheap yoga mats and expensive ones. If you are just beginning your yoga practice, you may want to select an inexpensive mat until you know you want to continue practicing yoga. To get some yoga tips, you might want to view some free online yoga videos. Yoga can be demanding and you may want to watch experienced instructors do some poses first before you try them. Some advanced poses require you to maintain your balance for a few minutes. This can be very challenging when you are first starting to learn some basic poses.

Yoga tips can also help you feel more comfortable when you decide to join a yoga class. There are tips on how to dress for a yoga class and where to put your mat when you are new to a class. You will want to know how much conversation to make during a yoga class. Since yoga is a meditative practice, conversation is normally discouraged during a class. Responding to the instructor or crying out is also considered rude. The instructor will normally let you know what to do if you find a pose too challenging.

Renee Lawrence is pursuing a PhD in Business Management with a concentration in work-family balance and stress management. Her research includes the examination of yoga as a stress management technique. Free yoga tips and videos can be found at
