About Yoga 101
by Kathleen Holm
I love yoga.
When I talk to people who want to do yoga, but haven’t done it yet, I often get the following responses:
“I know about yoga, how good it would be for me, and I want to go to class…but I'm not flexible enough." Or, "I just don't have enough time."
I have a solution to those two problems. Yoga 101 consists of three yoga classes created for beginners that are easy to follow and are less than 45 minutes long.
The style of yoga in this app is called vinyasa flow yoga, which is the most popular style of yoga practiced in America today. With this app you receive one free intro to yoga lesson, called Yoga Flow 101. There is also a separate tutorials section for some of the key elements of class. You may want to watch the tutorials before you take the class.
In addition to the Yoga Flow 101 lesson are lessons titled Yoga Flow 102 and Yoga Flow 103. These are available for $0.99 within the app as in-app purchases. These lessons build upon the poses you will learn in Yoga Flow 101.
I have one Golden Rule for yoga. Listen to your body. You are the captain of your domain and if any teacher at anytime asks you do to a pose that you think is not something you should do, please do not do it. Listen to yourself. It is perfectly acceptable and expected for people to sit out a pose if needed. The basic philosophy of yoga is ahimsa which means non-harming. Be mindful of what you should and should not be doing. It’s your body and hopefully, you’ve got a long (healthy) way to go in it!
Actually, I have two Golden Rules. The other is to be aware of your breath and how it moves through your body. There is magic in that breath. By developing breath awareness you literally learn how to tune in to any moment of your life. I’m excited for you to find out what I am talking about, as it is so powerful it can only be fully understood by actually experiencing it.
With a steady yoga practice, you’ll feel years younger than you do NOW! Without a yoga practice, (especially as you get older, stiffer, fatter and more inflexible) there is a great chance you’ll feel 10 years older than you will actually be!
Begin now. It really is that simple. Install the app.
My personal mission is to inspire 400,000,000 people to do yoga by the year 2020. If you enjoy this app, please tell your your friends and family and Yoga Flow 101!
