Tip 1 –  Avoid wrist pain using this chart.

Wrist pain is the #1 problem beginners face…

While it is the most common complaint heard in yoga classes, it is often just a result of applying pressure to the wrong area of the hand.

The key is to press down firmly into the fingers to alleviate the pressure on the wrist.

Tip 2 – Keep it simple.

Most fitness classes and workouts are centered around complicated workouts with lots of crazy movements.

While that has a time and a place, this mindset will not get you anywhere with yoga.

Focus instead on mastering the the key poses for flexibility and fat burning, not being sub par at the 1,000+ there are!

Tip 3 – Use a practice journal.

You forget 85% of what you don’t write down…

Yoga classes are filled will all sorts of little insights and “aha!” moments, because they provide amazing mental clarity...

You can also write down poses you need to work on and other yoga tips you learn along the way.

Tip 4 – Set your mat out the night before.

What better way to remind yourself of the commitment you have made than to put out your yoga mat every night. Seeing your mat every morning will act as a positive reinforcement for your practice.

You can also set it up near your front door so that you will see it every time you enter your house and every time you leave.

This is a subtle psychological trick to ensure yoga stays on your mind even when you’re feeling tired from a long day!
