Tips for Beginning Yoga

#1 Us the Internet – Google “Beginner Yoga Poses”
stretches that seem very doable for your level of limberness or flexibility, but don’t underestimate the look of a stretch or pose.
Remember- the goal is to become more flexible and limber so don’t limit yourself. Your stretches are supposed to feel comfortably, uncomfortable. If you are so uncomfortable that you’re finding your stretches difficult to breath through, chances are you are over doing it. Respect your body, respect your joints, your muscles, and your flexibility.

#2 Get a Yoga Matte or some Yoga Socks!
The last thing you want to do is start slipping while you’re holding a pose. Not only can that make practicing yoga unenjoyable, you also risk injury

#3 Understand that most people are more limber and flexible on one side of their body than the other.

#4 Practice Patience! – Don’t be in a rush and don’t let other people’s level of ability intimidate or discourage you. For a lot of us, it’s a slow process. Especially if are like me and decided to begin yoga in your 40’s. 🙂

#5 Make sure you use proper form when doing your yoga poses.
You don’t want to be doing poses repetitively that are improper form because it could ultimately lead to injury. When the technique of yoga is compromised, the body is placed at an increased risk of injury.

  1. Jennifer: I have a stupid question; In your opinion, do you think anyone can reach a slim body like yourself? I’m typically a curvy 120 pound at 5’2” 58 year old, maybe If I went down to say, 110 or even 105? I’m so excited to see someone like yourself that’s not afraid of carbs! I’ve “suffered” for years tryng vegan, low carb, keto and even carnivore and my weight is stuck plus Im miserable! I love the way you eat and don’t deprive yourself. I started eating similar to you a week ago and starting IF today to see if I can slim down!! What’s your opinion? I feel like Im forever stuck in a curvy body!! Love all your videos, you give me hope!!

  2. So helpful, thanks so much ❤

  3. Toi much talking not showing how to do it properly

  4. Thanks for the videos–you are so cheerful!! Where did you get your camo yoga pants? They're awesome!!!

  5. Can you lose weight doing yoga

  6. Lol mermaid pose is so tough for me🧜‍♀️

  7. So funny you said you got out of bed to do a pose. I literally just did that at the beginning of the video to see if I could do mermaid pose. 🙂 one side was easier than the other but I was able to do it! Great video!

  8. Hello. I am a newbie to your channel..love it..will yoga help abs?..what do you do for such toned abs?

  9. Can I do these poses with bad knees?

  10. Thanks for the great video! How many times a week do you practice yoga and for how long a session?

  11. Looking forward to the poses you will be sharing! And I too have cats that every time I get on the floor to exercise, there they are! : D

  12. Wait – for forward fold, shouldn’t you be hinging at the hip, not waist?

  13. I only got to halfway hear this. Did you do all this without classes or videos? WOW!!, and DUH very good tips. Thankyou so much. I have been a beginner off and on for years, but always did videos and just a few bodyflow classes. Never learned these moves. Scared to even try by myself with someof my alignment issues. Many blessings. You are always such an inspiration. Never acting full of yourself or anything. Thankyou!

  14. Thanks am starting yoga an loving it🧘🏻‍♀️

  15. I am really looking forward to your upcoming yoga video!!!!!

  16. Love you could you plz do more yoga videos

  17. I’ve been wanting to try yoga for the longest time but been so scared. I don’t know what I’m doing and terrified to go to a studio or class where I just know I’ll be made fun of. Thank you so much for these great tips that will finally help me with the final push I needed. I’m excited!

  18. Dang woman, you look 29 in this video!

  19. Thank you so much for sharing 🙏🏻❤️

  20. I never knew about being more flexible on one side, but it makes sense since we have assymetry..thanks!:)

  21. I really enjoyed this, Jenifer. I occasionally practice Iyengar yoga because it takes me out of my mind and into my body, with the main focus being on proper alignment and form. I love that you state that Mountain Pose isn't just standing with your palms out – it is a very active pose – just like Child's Pose and Downward Dog! If you're doing them correctly, you absolutely feel it the next day! Now, I can't wait to get out of work today and pull out my mat and get back to basics.

  22. Thanks Jen
    I am 61 and into yoga 3 mos now. Have a long way to go, but patience is key. Would love to see more of these type of videos

  23. These tips are so good and exactly what I needed to hear. Classes are intimidating..I’m going to try at home.

  24. Greate tips! Didnt know about the shoes, will check it out😊I'm into streching these days to soften up those muscles😎

  25. Thank you Jenifer…waiting 4 your next.

  26. Another great video 👍 Ive been wanting to start yoga for a while now.

  27. Yoga is based on Hinduism and was repackaged as exercise to make its debut into the West. But it’s religious aspects are becoming more obvious as the West rejects the Bible.

  28. With your little kitty playing with you, I was surprised you could concentrate to keep your form, Jenifer. Looking forward to seeing some of the basic poses. The resistance band in a wonderful idea. Have a lovely Mother's day. Blessings, and love..MaryEllen

  29. Ha! Your kitty has to be there with you. My dog would be trying to lick my face with that pose! Thank you for doing this video!

  30. Wow, love this video, it is great to share your tips and encourage others do practice yoga! Jenifer I think you would be an amazing yoga teacher, you totally have what it takes! I teach yoga in London and your wave like move is actually very advanced, requires lots of upper body strength, love it, it looks beautiful, I normally do chaturanga dandasana or knees, chest chin but will be definitely trying this for my clients …Thanks

  31. What warm up do first for this please? X

  32. Great tips Jenifer! You inspire me! Happy Mother's day!

  33. I love your glow today? Did you use a different lotion?

  34. You are so inspiring!!! Thank you for all the videos you make! I’m a 49 yr old mom of 3 and I love watching and being inspired by you!💕

  35. Awesome! I’ve been so hopeful that you would start doing some videos on yoga as you are so relatable and take the time to explain for a total novice in everything you do. I have been wanting to start yoga at home…but haven’t known where to begin. I’m in my late 50’s with some joint stiffness…and think this would be a great way to keep things from getting worse and to improve flexibility as I continue to age. Please keep these coming! Thank you so much!

  36. I am so uncoordinated and doing a wave seems so out of my reach hahaha

  37. This is an excellent yoga video for beginners. Yoga is one of the most effective ways to maintain the posture of a young athletic person. Great content. 👍🏻

  38. I was having problems with my sciatic nerve and found out it was a yoga injury. I had over-stretched my hip. The Dr said as you get older you can stretch the muscles farther than the joint is capable of going, so keep that in mind. Also if women have a degenerative spine/bones they need to adjust their workout or more damage can be done than good. (tips from a 50 year old. Haha)
