Doing Yoga for the First Time? We Got You!

As a plus-size person interested in yoga, it’s essential to find poses that are both beginner-friendly and well-suited for your body type. Yoga is an excellent way to improve flexibility, strength, and overall wellness, regardless of size. However, some poses may be more challenging for individuals with a larger body frame. Here, we’ll explore six yoga poses that are perfect for beginners and accommodating to all body types.

Mountain Pose (Tadasana)

This foundational pose is a great starting point for any yoga practice. Stand tall with your feet together or slightly apart, ensuring your weight is evenly distributed across both feet. Engage your core, lengthen your spine, and gently roll your shoulders back and down. As you breathe deeply, feel the connection between your feet and the earth beneath you.

Child’s Pose (Balasana)

This gentle resting pose is perfect for stretching the hips, thighs, and ankles while promoting relaxation. Begin on your hands and knees, then sit back on your heels. Extend your arms forward, allowing your forehead to rest on the ground. If your hips don’t reach your heels, place a pillow or folded blanket under your seat for added support.
