Yoga for dummies

2 years, 2 months ago

Hey guys!

So I’ve recently become quite addicted to indoor bouldering, going around 3 times a week. As a result, I’m finding myself dissatisfied with my core strength and flexibility. I figured yoga would help loosen things up after a big session, help me improve strength, and benefit all manners of my life alongside.

That being said, my only experience with yoga was for an hour every morning in India 2 years ago. I remember the benefits I felt from it at the time, and am really keen to start. Which brings my to my question to you: I will only be able to do yoga at home. Due to an irregular schedule and limited student finances, yoga classes, sadly, aren’t really an option at the moment. This being the digital age and all, I was wondering if anyone could recommend some resources – YouTube channels, websites, DVDs, even books. I just want to start a basic daily Yoga routine either in the morning or evenings (or maybe both) focused on improving flexibility in the hips and legs, and strengthening the back and core.

Hope you can help. Thanks in advance!

Dan.

I use asanas shown by this man:

They are very simple yet very effective methods. You don’t need too many kind of excersizes too strenghten yourself. Also there’s a program which is not strictly yoga, but the philosophy is nearly the same, it’s basically 6 kind of excersizes, it’s called Convict Conditioning, look it up, it’s badass.
