What are the basic steps to do yoga for a beginner?

Embrace the Journey:  Yoga is a practice, not a competition. Focus on enjoying the movement and finding what feels good for your body

Find Your Space: Create a quiet, clutter-free area with enough room to move freely. You can add calming music or dim the lights to enhance the atmosphere. 

 Gear Up (Optional): A yoga mat provides cushioning and grip, but you can practice on a towel or carpeted floor if needed. Loose, comfortable clothing allows for easy movement.

Start Simple: Focus on fundamental poses that build strength, flexibility, and body awareness. Mountain Pose (Tadasana), Downward-Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana), and Child's Pose (Balasana) are great beginner options 

Befriend Your Breath: Breathe deeply and rhythmically throughout your practice. Inhale as you open your body and exhale as you release tension. 

 Listen to Your Body: Don't push yourself into pain. Modify poses as needed and don't be afraid to rest when you need it. 

Be Consistent: Aim for short, regular practice sessions instead of infrequent long ones. Even 15 minutes a day can make a big difference. 

Explore and Enjoy: As you gain confidence, explore new poses and different yoga styles. Find what resonates with you and enjoy the journey of self-discovery that yoga offers
