Asanas are the names given to the many different yoga poses. If you’re looking to jumpstart your yoga experience, but are unsure where to start, consider this your cheat sheet!
- Setu Bandh (Bridge Pose)
Ensure your feet and hips are equal distance apart and lift your body upward.
- Nauka Chalan (Boat Pose)
Keep your legs straight (no bent knees!) and keep your knees together!
Keep your back as straight as possible and attempt doing this asana in the opposite direction as well.
- Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)
Ensure your palms are tucked under your shoulders before pushing up off the ground.
Don’t let the difficult name fool you, simply do your best to touch your toes and collapse your body into your knees.
