If you are new to yoga, you may be at a loss about which genre, which asanas and how to practice.
Yoga includes vinyasa, power, hatha yoga, astonga and so on.
You can practice in a yoga studio, gym, private class or at home.
Hatha Yoga may not be your favorite style, but it is really suitable for beginners.
Hada yoga is gentle and tends to practice slowly, allowing students to focus on the correct posture and body shape to support their body.
Today, I recommend a 10 minute Hatha Yoga sequence as an introduction to yoga.
It will let you know some basic asanas.
I hope it is useful for your yoga practice.
