Before you begin your practice

Anyone can practice yoga. Take a look at the poses listed here and see what seems accessible to you right now. Choose a few and as you practice each try to remain in the pose for 3-5 breaths. Bring some awareness to how you feel coming into the pose, while breathing in the pose, as you are mindfully coming out of the pose and then give yourself a moment of just being and noticing how the body feels after doing the pose. See if you can notice any differences or changes in your body or mind after practicing each pose. This is the mindfulness of yoga.
