Step 1: Organize your space Organize your yoga space by placing your mat in a quiet spot where there is room to spread your arms and legs. Step 2: Breathe Focus on your breath as you flow from pose to pose. Inhale at the start of a pose and exhale as you move to the next pose. Step 3: Begin with vinyasa Practice the first series of poses in power yoga, called a vinyasa. Stand with your arms by your sides. Then inhale, bringing your arms to prayer position in front of you, slowly extending your arms over your head. Tip Look up other postures in yoga books or online. Step 4: Fold over Exhale. Fold over at your waist until your hands touch the floor, your toes, or your ankles. Step 5: Lift up, then plank Inhale. Lift halfway up, exhale, and then go into plank position. Step 6: Do downward dog Inhale, move through to cobra position, exhale, and then go into downward dog. Hold downward dog for three breaths. Tip A good way to extend your practice is by taking a class. Check your local fitness center for class offerings. Step 7: Repeat Repeat the vinyasa as many times as you need to get warm. As you get more comfortable, add other poses and get stronger as you do. Did You Know? Yoga originated in India over 5,000 years ago.
