The Importance of Yoga Poses

There are many different types of Yoga poses. Each pose has its own benefits to not practicing the correct position. I’ve been doing Yoga for quite some time now and I’m starting to see the importance of proper Yoga positions.

Yoga Poses

The six basic Yoga poses are Chaturanga, Sun Salutation, Sukhasana, Hatha, Ashtanga and Bikram. Each pose works to improve flexibility, strength, balance, and flexibility. It is the art of balancing the mind, body, and spirit that I am trying to get to grips with. There are many benefits to each of these positions.

Chaturanga is a seated forward bend in which your knees are slightly bent at a ninety-degree angle. Then your torso shifts forward so that you are fully stretched forward. Next, you lower your pelvis into a position where it is flat on the floor. You then use your hands to clasp your toes.

Now, your feet are placed apart, with your heels touching. Your spine is completely straight. You hold this position for one to two minutes and then repeat. Your lower back muscles will be stretched by this pose.

Sun Salutation is a forward bend. In this pose, you begin with your right foot forward. Then you extend your arms straight out in front of you so that your palms are facing each other. You then slowly bend your left knee up until it is directly over your right elbow.

Consider Right Knee

From here, you will place your right knee up towards your left knee. Then you will move your right foot and leg down to the floor. You then push your left knee up and down and inward. Keep your legs straight and then bend your left knee back up to a standing position.

Ashtanga is an exercise that will allow you to go from a standing position to a sitting position. In this pose, you begin in a standing position with your hands clasped together and your hips close to your chest. You then slowly raise your arms out to the sides, keeping your shoulders down. You will then lower your body down to a sitting position.

Yoga Poses: Hatha

Hatha is a kneeling pose that takes your body up to a standing position. You will start in a seated position but you will bring your knees up towards your chest. Your knees will stay straight and your legs are not bent.

The great advantage of this pose is that you can practice all types of different poses without ever going back to a sitting position. This is because you are always in a standing position. In addition, your muscles will be strengthened and your back will be relaxed.

Position Of Your Back

A lot of people are unsure about how they are supposed to keep their back straight in Yoga. While it is not mandatory that you keep your back straight, if you want to achieve a good Yoga posture, it’s best to do so. Hanging your back or having a hunched back is a big no-no for Yoga.

You can also try both the Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga pose. However, it is best to combine the two because the Ashtanga pose will help you achieve better balance and the Hatha poses will increase your flexibility. You can also try a combination of both.

Bottom Line

To improve your Yoga poses and get the perfect posture, you should practice them consistently. You should also have your goals set and stick to them.
