Yoga to Build Strength

By A Live Yogi –

Gone are the days where a yoga practice meant putting aside 90 minutes of your life each day! Modern yoga is for every-BODY.

You can be young, old, have limitations and injuries and you can still find the right style of yoga that is perfect for you.

But we get it, getting to a class, with our busy schedules, can be difficult right? (Not to mention expensive).

Which is why we fell in love with A Live Yogi.

A Live Yogi is an online studio allows people to connect to classes and teachers from the comfort of their own home, anywhere in the world.

Starting a home practice is beneficial for beginner yogis through to the more advanced yogi – it allows you to explore the variety of classes, poses and movement in your own space, with shorter or longer classes – depending on your energy levels.

Dedicating yourself to a regular yoga practice has significant benefits, on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.

In India, where yoga first originated, yoga is a daily practice, that being, yoga in all of its entity- from asana (the physical postures) to pranayama (breathing techniques), to meditation.

If your aim is to build strength in your body, roll out your mat and try these 5 foundational standing poses. The wonderful thing about these 5 poses is that they can create a sweaty power flow to get the heart pumping or be incorporated throughout a gentle flow to be suitable for beginners.
