Yoga Poses for Beginners

Are you feeling the pinch and stress of daily life? If so, then that is a thing of the past. Here we will walk you through some of the best and most easy yoga routine for beginner.

Yoga Postures for Beginners

Yoga is one of the antediluvian and time-honoured traditions that trace its roots back to ancient India. It is instrumental in bringing about harmony, peace and content of mind. Once you are fully immersed in yoga, you will slowly uncover and unearth the trove of benefits that it is all about. Let us now see the beginner poses for yoga.

  1. Child’s Pose or Balasana

This is one of the basic yogic postures that beginners can begin with. It is very relaxing and calming and a great way to rejuvenate even during the session. This posture helps to regain one’s composure and self even when the going gets tough during any session or any time of the day. It helps to stretch the back, hips, thighs and ankles. It is gentle and is not challenging. Hence it is just the pose for beginners.

  1. Corpse Pose or Savasana

It is the best way to end a session of yoga. Here the person just simply has to lie down flat on the back as if like a corpse. It is the perfect transition between the yoga session and a kickstart to the day all refreshed and rejuvenated. The pose is all about lying still and it is definitely challenging for the mind to remain in composure and making it calm down. With every practice session, the going gets easier with this pose.

  1. Cobbler Pose or Baddha Konaasana

Gravity is used here to stretch the inner thighs in the pose. As a beginner, it may be difficult and challenging. Props may be used then and props include cushions or blankets rolled thickly so that the hips are raised and the knees stretch out with more ease and comfort. Once the legs are relaxed, the benefits of this pose can be enjoyed. To get the best out of it, just prop the knees with some kind of gentle support so they can rest on them. It helps the body’s neglected parts to stretch out, with the adductor groups in the groins getting best affected.

  1. Staff Pose or Dandasana

It is the seated version of the mountain pose. It aligns the body for various seated poses and helps to engage the muscles in the legs and flex the feet. Lifting the chest helps to relax the shoulders. The knees can be gently bent so as to allow ease for the shoulders to remain aligned with the hips. Props like folded blankets can be used in case of difficulty in sitting straight with the buttocks flat on the back.

  1. Cobra Pose or Bhujangasana

It is an extremely effective pose that stretches the arms and lets the back bend deeply. The full cobra aids in strengthening the back and a low cobra helps to lift up the chest. It is a very effective way of stretching the entire body.


In conclusion, it can be said that going easy with yoga helps to gradually upgrade to the more complex poses. Take things one step at a time and there is no need to rush things. Everything might not be perfect in the first class, but there is no reason to believe that yoga is not for you. Listen carefully to what your body has to say to you and you will perfect it with time and become a pro at it.
