Remember to breathe deeply and listen to your body as you move through these poses. As with any exercise, it’s important to start slowly and gradually build up to more challenging poses. If you’re new to yoga, it may be helpful to take a class or work with a yoga teacher to ensure you’re practicing safely and correctly.
