Yoga is a wonderful exercise that you can do. It helps in increasing your range of motion, promoting better blood circulation and many other benefits. However, in order to enjoy the benefits associated in yoga, you have to execute yoga poses correctly.

Anyone can Do it

Luckily, there are many forms that can be done that are perfect for all yoga levels. So whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced, there is a pose that is right for you.

Assuming that you’re a newbie in this exercise, here’s one form that you may try.

Forward Fold (Uttanasana)

Take a deep breath but on your inhale, be sure to raise your arms up and to the sides. Before you exhale, release your arms as you are folding your torso over your legs. On your first try, slightly bend in your knees. Regardless of your flexibility, your hamstrings may be cold when you’re starting. So try to be as gentle with them as possible.

As you feel more relaxed doing the pose, straighten your legs as far as it feels good. You should stop with your movement if you feel anything that is pinching or is shooting pain in your body.
