FAQs For Yoga Beginners

Like most yoga beginners, you likely have quite a few questions. Well, these FAQ’s for yoga beginners should help to get you started ...

Frequently asked questions

Do I have to be flexible to practice yoga?


The answer is NO. If you are not flexible, yoga is a great way to BECOME more flexible. Your size, age or level of flexibility doesn’t matter. Maybe you need to ask yourself what flexibility means to you: Do you want to be able to touch your toes, or is your goal to have your leg behind your head? The more impressive the pose looks, the longer it will take to get there. Be very patient and gentle with yourself – if you push too far, you might overstretch and hurt yourself. Your yoga teacher will have in mind your flexibility and during the practice she or he will guide you to alternative yoga posture so you will get all the benefits and not injure yourself on your path to more flexible body.

Can I lose Weight Doing Yoga? Can you lose belly fat with yoga?


Yes, to both question. Yoga can help you lose weight, yes, you can lose belly fat with the help of yoga. Losing weight has two important aspects, healthy eating, and exercise. Yoga poses for weight loss demand these aspects. Different asanas and sequences, like Surya Namaskar, can help you lose belly fat. Yoga postures coupled with mindful breathing help to detoxify the body, cleanse the digestive tract, and decrease anxiety and stress. Stress is one of the biggest culprits behind weight gain and belly fat. Yoga can help reduce your stress, strengthen the body and tone your muscles, as well as help you improve your metabolism. Some of the Yoga asanas for weight and belly fat loss are: Chaturangadandasana – Plank pose, Virabhadrasana – Warrior pose, Trikonasana – Triangle pose, Adho Mukha Svanasana – Downward Dog pose, Sethu Bandha Sarvangasana – Bridge pose, Parivrtta Utkatasana – Twisted Chair pose, Uttanpadasana - Double Leg Raised Yoga pose.

Can I Do Yoga If I'm Overweight?


Yes, you can practice yoga at any weight, size, and fitness level. Your yoga teacher will help you adjust poses and sequences to accommodate your body type and shape. Beginners who are overweight or obese can and should begin a yoga practice, just be sure to check with your doctor about the intended exercise program first. Starting a yoga practice can be challenging for any beginner but the anxiety of attending class can be even greater for full-figured beginners. Before attending a yoga class, speak to your yoga teacher. By expressing your concerns and limitations your yoga teacher will make modifications, maybe even ahead of time rather than during class. This is particularly great if you are concerned about unwanted extra attention or feeling singled out. Maybe you can consider taking few one-on-one classes. Once you master your yoga basics and feel comfortable with it, you can transition to practicing group yoga either online or in yoga studio. Book your first @yogazamene online class.

Can I Eat Before Yoga Class?


It is best to wait an hour after eating before practicing yoga, but a small snack before your class is perfectly alright. Observe your body to learn how much time you need to digest your food before practice. Personally, if it's been too long since my last meal, I make sure that I charge up with a nutrient-dense and easy-to-digest food that picks me up without feeling bloated or heavy.An hour before class usually works well for me, and I am talking about something like few bites of banana and almonds, or half of avocado, a little bit of dark chocolate ... ​ Book your first @yogazamene online class.
