Anyone who thinks yoga is easy hasn’t done it and anyone who’s stuck with it, will tell you it’s worth the extra effort.
What makes yoga great is the many different ways it can work for a person. Restorative yoga can keep your mind and body limber; vinyasa yoga will push your muscles to their limits; hatha yoga will give you the best of both worlds.
Regardless of which school of yoga you follow, it’s important to remember that instructors exist for a reason. Because while yoga is, compared to other forms of exercise, a relatively low-impact way to exercise, improper form and technique can still lead to injury.
Especially with these poses.
