If you’re new to the world of yoga, then the challenging yoga poses that you see in advanced yoga classes could appear intimidating. Fortunately, there are plenty of moves that you can try even if you’re a beginner. Here are some basic yoga poses that you can try without prior experience.

Cat/Cow Pose

Go down on your hands and knees and ensure that your wrists and directly below your shoulders and your knees are below your hips. Inhale while expanding your stomach to the floor while gently arching your back, and lifting your head to the ceiling. Exhale while bringing your chin to your chest and returning your spine to its original position.

Seated Twist

Sit down and ensure both legs are straight. Lift your right foot, cross it over your left leg, and place your right hand behind your right hip, keeping your left hand grounded for stability. After taking a deep breath, return to the starting position and switch sides.

Child’s Pose

Start on your hands and knees and move your hips back towards your feet as you keep your hands planted on the floor. Drop your chest, thighs, and head toward the floor, and keep your arms extended while enjoying the deep stretch.
