Yoga recommendations for beginners?

Recommended Posts



So it's a little more complex than that.  Right at the beginning of my last challenge, I messed up the muscles in my core.  They're still debating whether it was massive inflammation or an actual tear.  Needless to say it's still giving me grief.


For now, I'm gonna be sticking with the physio exercises that they're giving me for a slow and steady rehab.  But eventually I'm going to want to progress onto some gentle yoga, building my way up.


Does anyone have any good recommendations for where to start?  I'm essentially looking for youtube videos specifically, as I'm dirt poor and can't afford to pay for too much, and there are no classes in my area.


Thanks so much for any advice you have, it's greatly appreciated!

"Yoga with Adriene", YouTube channel of the same name, teaching a Find What Feels Good attitude in her yoga practice, kindness and self-awareness. I don't know how you are with yourself, but I sure benefit from her style of teaching...

If tech is your thing, consider downloading Down Dog. It's a great app with multiple levels and time settings and a helpful guide with instructions and images.
