Finding Free Yoga Exercises

As the popularity of yoga rises in the west, there are more resources that are available that people can use to find free yoga exercises. There are many different websites that offer free yoga exercises that people can do in their homes with the use of a yoga mat and yoga clothing. There are also some free yoga exercises that can be found in video format on different websites so that people can follow along with others who are leading classes for beginners through intermediate levels. There are also some sites that offer forums for users to talk to each other and give each other advice about different questions that they might have about the different types of yoga and the poses that are required in those forms.

The Practice of Yoga

Many of the free yoga exercises are from the Hatha style of yoga, which is a series of poses that are done in a relaxed manner with a slow form of breathing. These free yoga exercises usually take people through a basic Sun Salutation, in which there are a series of moves that progress one after another. Each position is held briefly while breathing in or out during the pose. The series is usually repeated several times so that the person gradually warms up or cools down the body. If the poses are used to warm up, they are often repeated faster and faster until the person has started to break a sweat and then other poses are started. If the poses are used to cool down, then they are gradually slowed down until the person is starting to get cooler and is ready for more of the stretching poses.

The free yoga exercises also will often cover the ways the person should be doing the various poses so that the correct technique is used. The exercises will often help people to become more body aware so that they can tell when a part of the body that should be relaxed during a pose is really tensed so that they can learn to relax those parts and only have the muscles working that are needed in that pose. These techniques from the free yoga exercises can be carried over into real life so that the person can catch himself tensing muscles up that do not need to be tensed during the course of working each day. This leads to more relaxed shoulder and neck muscles and relieves back tension.
