5 simple yoga pose (Asana) for beginners to try on
1. Shavasana, Corpse Pose, or Mrtasana.
Arguably the easiest yoga pose of all time, Corpse Pose is highly effective and simple to practice. Encouraging the body to completely relax, the pose is often used at the end of a yoga class.
To practice, all you need to do is lie down on your back. Finally, relax your arms by your sides and keep both your legs stretched out.
2. Vajrasana or Thunderbolt pose or Diamond Pose.
This Posture helps in improving the digestive system and releases back pain. Strengthens the muscles of legs and back. It is best to avoid this asana if you have knee problems or undergone knee surgery.
To practice, kneel on your shins, placing the tops of the feet on the floor. This time, there’s no block between the ankles – instead, we zipper the inner feet and ankles together, then bring your sitting bones to your heels.
3. Virabhadrasana or Warrior Pose
This Posture increases flexibility in the hips and strengthens and tones the legs, ankles and feet.
To practise, The poses can be entered from a standing position, Tadasana, jumping or stepping the feet wide apart. For Virabhadrasana , the hips are turned to face the front foot, which is turned fully outwards; the back foot is turned halfway inwards. The body sinks down into a lunge until the front knee is bent to a right angle, the back leg remaining straight, and the back foot working to keep the whole of the sole of the foot on the floor. The arms are stretched straight upwards, the back is slightly arched, and the gaze is directed upwards.
4. Bhujangasana or Cobra Pose
Cobra pose is helpful for lower back pain which originates in the spinal column. This can be from poor posture or ailments such as slipped disks and osteoporosis. This pose gently stretches and strengthens your spine, particularly in the pelvic area.
To practise, Lie on your stomach with your feet as wide as your hips and your hands next to your chest, fingers spread wide. With an inhale, push into your hands to lift your head and torso, keeping your pelvis on the floor. Bend your elbows slightly to open up your shoulders. Breathe while holding the pose
5. Chakravakasana or Cat-Cow Pose or Marjaryasana – Bitilasana
This pose may be done as a part of a warmup sequence, a relaxation sequence, or as an exercise to prevent back pain. You can perform CatCow on an exercise mat or on a carpeted floor.
To practise, your knees should be hip width distance and your hands should be directly below your shoulders. Your spine is neutral here. Inhale as you drop your belly and lift your gaze and your tail bone towards the sky. (Cow Pose) Exhale as you slowly tuck your chin towards your chest, lift your mid-back towards the sky and scoop your tailbone under. Like you’re imitating a scary Halloween cat. (Cat Pose) Do at least four rounds of these then return to a neutral spine.
