When Galleries Can Help

Even if you practice in a class setting, there may be times when you need some additional assistance. This is where this pose gallery can be helpful.

Visual Instruction

Many yoga instructors do not stay on their own mat during class. While this enables them to move around the room, it does not offer you a visual of what a pose should look like. For poses like camel, that instruct you to look away from the front of the room, or crow, which need a great deal of concentration to complete, having a photograph can help you achieve the proper form.

Break Down of the Pose

Each pose in the gallery offers step-by-step instructions for getting into it properly and safely. If you need a pose like triangle broken down to make it easier to get into, the information can be invaluable.

Benefits of Each Pose

Sometimes a pose can be challenging, difficult, or maybe not that interesting. This is where knowing just what that pose is doing for you can help you overcome these obstacles. Additionally, there may be specific poses that help conditions, like back pain or asthma, that you may wish to try.

Tips for Beginners

Sometimes a pose may need modifications if you are just starting out or have never done it before. Even simple poses like child's pose have modifications available if you need them.

Make Use of What's Offered

True yogis know that in order to practice fully, you need to take advantage of what is available to you. Make use of these yoga pose galleries for all your needs and learn to find new stillness in your practice.
