Daily Yoga Workout for Yoga Body at Home Program:
The workout is designed to keep your fit, flexible, strong and balanced. Each day do the following…
Section 1: Breathing Exercises Section (Pranayama): Total time 1-5 Minutes
- 4 Part Deep Breathing for Energy and Vitality: This exercise is a great way to start any yoga workout or other fitness routine. It will get your energy going and long term will help you increase your lung capacity and respiratory system. Start with 1 minute and build up from there to 3-5 minutes.
Section 2: Yoga Workout Section: Total time 5-20 minutes
- Surya Namaskar – Best Yoga for Stretching: Even though Surya Namaskar is called the best yoga set for stretching your entire body, it is also excellent for developing your lower and upper body strength. Surya Namaskar is probably the most famous yoga set of all. It is a very complete set and if done everyday it will go a long way in helping you develop a toned, fit body. Start with just 2-3 rounds and build up your capacity till you can do 12 rounds. From there you can even go further doing as many rounds as you like.
Surya Namaskar can be done slowly to help develop flexibility and strength, or it can be done without pausing between poses, to help develop your cardio vascular system. In addition, as you get in better and better shape, you can reduce or eliminate the rest period between rounds, thus getting an even more intense workout. All in all this is one of the best yoga sets and as it is so well balanced, it is wonderful to do a daily practice.
Section 3: Yoga Meditation Section: Total time 5 minutes
- Yogic Breathing as Relaxation Meditation: Once you have completed your rounds of Surya Namaskar, lie on your back in Corpse Pose and then start Yogic Breathing. Just relax completely during this phase and completely let your worries and anxieties go. Just let go of everything, focus on just the breathing and relax completely.
The value of such relaxation is often underestimated, but such conscious relaxation is truly a therapy for your mind and body. So really incorporate this exercise aspect into your program and reap the benefits.
Also, Yogic Breathing is the correct way to normally breathe and being mindful of your breath and insuring that you are breathing correctly throughout the day, will be a huge boon to your overall health and well-being.
Daily Yoga Workout for a Yoga Body Class Participation Guidelines
Following are the guidelines which I suggest we follow…
- Please post all comments, questions and feedback in the comments section of this post. This way all will benefit from the discussion. Feel free to ask questions or discuss issues, as that is one of the main reasons for this particular class format. Of course, you are free to email me as well if you would like the discussion to not be public.
- If you like, you can indicate with a comment that you have completed your daily session. Could be as short as "did it", or of course could be questions, issues or more detailed feedback. The hardest part with a daily yoga and exercise practice is establishing consistency and regularity and I think having to acknowledge that you completed your daily practice will help in facilitating that. In addition, your comments will inspire others as well.
- Before starting your daily yoga session, take a moment and tune in to your higher self for guidance and protection. At the end of every session, visualize yourself and the world as you would like it to be.
- Do the best you can and modify the techniques as required. It is more important to do something, than be overwhelmed and not do anything at all.
- I wish you all a wonderful learning and transforming experience and hope this program really helps you get fit and get your body in shape :-).
