Learn Yoga At Home For Beginners
Updated: Feb 9
If you are reading this blog, then I suspect you are new to Yoga and interested in learning Yoga at home. Right now is a perfect time to learn yoga at home for beginners. Learning Yoga at home gives you so many benefits, and below are five excellent benefits about learning Yoga in the comfort of your own home on a practical basis.
PRACTICAL BENEFITS OF LEARNING YOGA AT HOME FOR BEGINNERS
You are in your environment, and this really can give us a sense of security. When we feel safe and secure, and the atmosphere isn't new, we can relax much more and hopefully absorb much more when we arrive at the mat to learn Yoga.
Because you are in your own space, you are not looking at someone else on their mat or comparing your body or practice to anyone. You can completely honour your body and feel no pressure to do anything your body doesn't feel comfortable to do.
You can go as slow as you need to with the opportunity to possibly pause or rewatch the Yoga class to go over anything that you feel you may have missed so you can absorb learning more about Yoga.
You save so much time, as you do not have to rush around getting to class, getting dressed, driving, eating oh my gosh the list goes on. You save so much time being able to turn the computer on and your learning begins.
You can go straight to bed after your beginner's Yoga session. Once you have finished your Yoga class, you do not have to get in the car and drive to get back home. All you have to do once you complete your yoga learning is to switch the device off and roll into bed or get a lovely bath surrounded by candles.
You are meeting and sharing Yoga for beginners with like-minded people online who want to learn Yoga at home and beginners to Yoga.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF LEARNING YOGA AT HOME FOR BEGINNERS
1. Learn the basic principles of Yoga postures
In the beginner's Yoga course (betails below), you get the opportunity to go over the Yoga postures in much more details. This gives you a chance to understand the alignment and feel safe and confident in your practice that you are doing at home.
2. Learn the benefits of Yoga postures
The sessions in the online beginner's yoga course explore benefits that you receive from the asanas performed and you have the opportunity to feel the effects personally yourself due to exploring Yoga postures throughout the sessions.
3. Develop the art of breathing and awareness of breath
The beginner's yoga course explores the breath. It helps us to understand how we breathe and how we can breath better. We use the Yoga practice to encourage better breathing and increase awareness of the effects of the breath on the body and the mind.
4. Explore Relaxation
Each session on the beginner's Yoga course explores Relaxation at the end of the Yoga class. The relaxations explored allow you to learn how to relax more and the importance of relaxation for the body and the mind.
5. Learn to adapt and perform postures to your own body and ability
Learning Yoga at home as a beginner gives us the perfect opportunity to explore postures at our own pace and ability. We learn to listen and honour what the body needs and go with the feelings and sensations.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE BEGINNERS YOGA COURSE
"Hi Everyone Just to say I have had the pleasure of learning yoga at the beginning of this lockdown on a free sessions with Lotus Flower Yoga.
Since then I have booked a course for beginners and just finished the next course.
This just hasn’t been something to look forward to in this times but it’s has helped my posture, my breathing especially with my asthma. Don’t get me wrong I still can’t do all the poses but I am getting stronger. Thanks Katya 👏🏻❤️" - Pam Lewtas
