Where to start with yoga?
Don’t be intimidated but complicated terminology, fancy yoga studios of complicated poses. Yoga is for everyone.
Whether you start by going to a local yoga studio, or following an online class at home, taking a class can be a fantastic way to start your journey with yoga. With a teacher to guide you through the poses, and help you learn how to move your body.
If you are just starting out, starting a free course like Yoga with Adrienne can be a great way to build yoga into your ritual. The most important thing to remember when starting to practice yoga (or when you are starting any healthy habit) is doing it routinely, start small with a few minutes a day and work up from there.
What to wear to yoga?
Wear what you are comfortable in! Usual workout wear is recommended, as it allows you the freedom of movement. Loose fitting clothes might also get in the way if you go on to attempt any inversion poses (a headstand for example).
What time of day is it best to do yoga?
Any and all of the time! The trick is to make it work for you. So whether it is practising early in the morning to stretch out and get in the right headspace for the day, or heading to a class after work to de-stress after a long day - yoga is fantastic for your mind and body anytime that works for you.
How often should I do yoga?
Generally speaking, many say that it is best when practiced between 2 and 5 times a week. As you practice more you may find a daily practice helpful or you may find that you can only realistically fit it into your schedule once or twice.
Is CBD good for yoga?
CBD is short for cannabidiol and is derived from the hemp plant - it works with our body’s ECS (endocannabinoid system), a system of nerves and receptors to help our body to achieve balance. This can aid relief of stress, anxiety, improve sleep, soothe pain and inflammation and support our immune system.
Many people who practice yoga may also take CBD. CBD oils
may help to calm the mind, help you to de-stress and find your balance. If taken before a yoga class this may help you to feel more zen and relax into the class.
You might also want to try a CBD Drink after class, to refresh yourself (especially after hot yoga class!) as CBD’s anti-inflammatory benefits may help to soothe sore muscles and reduce inflammation.
