Yoga has been practiced for over 5000 years. This form of body movement has started in India but has spread throughout the world over the years. Although most yoga is taught in studios, people can now start their own private personal training to improve their yoga poses and benefit from it.

Beginner yoga

People who are just starting to incorporate yoga into their daily regimen can try basic poses first to increase their flexibility and strength.

Mountain pose

The mountain pose promotes solid breathing and improves posture as well as the person’s sense of center. Simply stand with feet wide apart. Place the arms at the sides then breathe slowly at an even pace. Always keep your neck aligned. Some people take a prayer position or reach up to the sky to help them focus.

Downward facing fog

Downward facing dog encourages blood circulation and is a good stretching exercise for the calves and heels. Get on all fours with hand and knees apart. Curl the toes under then carefully press the hips upward so that the body looks like an inverted V.

Intermediate yoga

Private personal training for intermediate poses are more challenging and requires more flexibility

King dancer pose

This pose improves core strength and balance. Bend the knee and then shift the weight to one leg. Gasp the inside of the left foot with the left hand. Bring the left foot and right arm up towards the ceiling and bring the torso forward. Hold the position for 5 seconds then release. Repeat on the other side.

Reverse warrior pose

Keep the knee over the foot when lunging the right knee 90 degrees. Open the arms out, bringing the right arm in front. Bring the hand down into the back of the rear leg. To stretch the spine bring the front arm up.

Advance yoga

People should only start an advance private personal training when they have already mastered the basics and have sufficient strength and flexibility to carry out these poses.

This pose strengthens the shoulders, abs and arms while stretching the hamstrings. Start with a wide legged squat with feet wide apart. Place the hands on front in the floor. Wrap the hands behind and around the ankles. Put your shoulders under the knees. Squat back down then shift the body weight into the hands. Cross the feet in the air after you lift them. Squeeze the thighs tight and straighten the legs into a straddle.

Head stand
