The goal of Beginners Relaxation Exercise is to help the yoga beginner learn the basics of this activity for the physical, mental, and relaxation benefits gained from the poses, breathwork, and meditation of yoga.

From Beginners Relaxation Exercise: Yoga for Beginners, the first time yogi will be introduced to yoga terminology, versed in the “ins and outs” of a studio including etiquette while at the same time feeling comfortable and safe doing the poses, breathwork, and meditation. With completion of this guide, students will be able to attend any yoga class and be able to participate fully or create their own home practice program. Like most things worth mastering, yoga takes practice and patience. Yoga is something that is available to all generations and fitness levels while providing unlimited benefits.
