As you must be aware of the fact that the world is going to observe the International Yoga Day on 21st June. The International day of yoga is also known as the World Yoga Day. United Nations General Assembly has declared 21st of June as an International Yoga Day on 11th of December in 2014. The known existence of Yoga is India-originated, considered to be around 5,000 years old. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness. Yoga and meditation are used to transform the body and mind.

World Yoga Day or International Day of Yoga will be celebrated throughout the world for the fifth consecutive time on 21st June 2019, on Friday.

Yoga is something which is not practiced on the Yoga Day only. Like we play with colors on Holi or firecrackers on Diwali or cook sewain on Eid and Santa showers us with amazing gifts only on Christmas!

Yoga Beginner? So What!

When I am referring to the beginner, what does it mean? Everyone in this world is a beginner first, then a learner and an achiever. Also, no one is born with perfection.

So imagine your mom who cooks so perfectly for you were once afraid of holding knife and chopping onion for her omelets.  On the other hand, your dad, who looks very perfect behind the wheel, was once so afraid of balancing on the bicycle.

So I need not explain it further that in order to learn any skill, you require dedication, consistency, and interest – just three of these and rest is the history!

You are here looking to acquire skills on yoga but don’t know from where to start.  This “yoga for beginner series” will teach you certain postures that are essential for you to learn, so that you can feel comfortable in a group performance or practicing on your own at home.

    1. Hi Christine! It’s amazing that you discovered yoga 25 years back. I hope you never missed your yoga practices. Age is not a count. Always use supports under your joints and head. If you don’t have any serious illness related to blood pressure or any other chronic disease, you can continue fearlessly with yoga. My father is 75 plus and is capable of doing most of the yoga poses elegantly.
