Whether it's age or lack of experience that's keeping you from beginning a Vinyasa yoga practice, discover why it is never too late to start. Lana Masor, MS, 500-RYT, guides us through the average routine for a Vinyasa yoga beginner.
Lana: I hear a lot from people that they don't want to try yoga because they think they're too old, or that they're completely inflexible. And the wonderful thing about yoga is that it can be practiced at any age and the benefit of a yoga practice is that it helps to increase flexibility. Every Vinyasa yoga practice will be different depending on where you practice and with whom you practice, however what you can expect is that there will be an opening series of seated or standing poses, it then goes into sun salutations, form there into standing postures, into seated poses, usually ending with shoulder stand or some type of inversion, followed by Savasana, which is the resting pose. If you're a beginner a yoga practice is a wonderful thing to do for your body, Vinyasa especially is something that will bring you many, many health benefits, physically, spiritually and mentally.
