Hi and question

portalguy2010-07-04 21:16:46 +0000 #1

My name is Paul and I'm giving Yoga a try. Was wondering if someone could possibly answer my question? Right now I'm just trying out different Asanas without any real sequence or flow and really enjoying myself. I don't have the $$$ for classes and my wrists aren't the greatest so I kind of just get up and move from one asana to another. Any harm in this? It puts me in a meditative state and I can tell you it's doing good for my flexibility. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Paul,

The most important thing to remember when doing yoga like this is to balance the asanas, certain asanas follow each other for a reason and this is where a teacher would be of great assistence. When you do a series of forward bends it is important to balance them with a few back benders. Initially this might work for you, but the value of having a teacher who teaches the sublties of yoga is of considerable value and I think you must make enquiries in your town. Some teachers have reduced prices or you may exchange your free time by helping out at a studio for some classes.

Good Luck and I trust someone will help you.

Is their a site that possibly would help with this? That would explain what are the matches for asanas?

Hi Paul....I'm new to yoga as well as yourself , although I am very fortunate to have found a studio that I feel is well suited to me I don't always find the time to get to it's location (45 minutes from home). When this happens I use the following site :

Yoga Today : Get Started Today:

Adi Amar is one of my favorites on this site and have found in particular her Ashtanga classes very well done.

Hope this is of help...and it's free!
