RESOURCES FOR YOGA STUDENTS
Free Yoga Resources
When you are just starting out in your practice it can be a very daunting time. How do you know what the poses are? What sort of supplies do you need to practice yoga? Do you really need to practice yoga in a studio?
I remember when I started out I had no idea what I was doing or what questions I should even be asking, which made the whole situation that much scarier!
So today I want to provide you with as much free resources as I can to help you get started in your practice, whether that is from home, with me, or live in a studio, and provide you with everything you need to feel comfortable as you get started!
So, where should I begin???
There are so many resources that I can share with you, god knows there was so many things I was looking for what I started, but I know it can be a little overwhelming at first, therefore, I suggest beginning with the 5-Day Introduction to Yoga Challenge.
This challenge will give you a taste of a simple 15-minute yoga class and will prove to you that you can ABSOLUTELY practice yoga. Each day you will work on something new, and build off of what you learnt the day before, showing you that you don't need to look or be a certain way to be an awesome yogi!
Once you have completed the 5 day yoga challenge (and you can repeat this practice as many times a you want) you will have a better understanding of how the poses feel in your body, how to use props to do things such as bring the ground closer to you and support your body to relieve excess pressure, and how every pose has a way to modify it so that you can enter the pose safely & feel its benefits.
During this 5-day challenge you can practice the days video (as many times as you want) and begin to get a feel for the beautiful practice of yoga all while beginning to build your yoga practice.
How to Use A Prop in Yoga
Yoga props are amazing tools to utilize in a class and they can help you in so many ways. The beauty of a prop is that anything can be used as a prop. You don't always need to spend money to assist in your practice, you can use whatever you have in your home! Take a look and test some things out for yourself.
Beginner Yoga Sequences
One of the hardest parts of building a home practice is knowing what the heck poses to do and where to put them in your sequence. I have created 5 different yoga classes for you to try out at home. As you follow along with the sequence you can begin to change the sequences slightly by lengthening or shortening the posture to create a different style of class.
One of the most frustrating things about practicing yoga is not knowing how to get into the posture, or even how that posture is supposed to feel in your body.
This free e-book will provide you with details of many common yoga poses you will see me teach in my classes. I will provide steps to get into the posture, ways that you can utilize the props to allow you to feel more comfortable in the posture & modifications that can be used to ensure that you are safe and comfortable.
How To Meditate
Meditation does not have to be this complicated thing. It doesn't have to be scary, or daunting. Rather, it can be this beautiful practice of learning to let go of all your expectations & just be one with your self.
This guide will provide you with different styles of meditations and will give you an idea of how to begin a meditation practice, as well as what style of meditation works for you
