There are a number of ways someone can do easy yoga, though in general he should look for yoga positions appropriate for his experience level and prepare properly. Someone just starting out should choose beginner’s yoga poses that will not result in injury; many of these positions continue to be used at higher levels so practice can still help later on. People can also find ways to perform easy yoga by wearing comfortable clothes, using a mat to perform yoga on, and giving themselves a proper amount of time.

Easy yoga can refer to beginning yoga positions, though it can generally mean any type of yoga a person finds easy to perform. Someone interested in first learning to do yoga should consider beginning positions that require less flexibility than some later positions. There are a number of classes, books, websites, videos, and other resources a person can use to find introductory positions that can be used for easy yoga. Many of these positions involve stretching and ensuring proper internal lubrication of joints, which allow someone practicing these positions to be healthier and more comfortable.

Someone looking to perform easy yoga should also consider how many of these positions continue to be used even in more advanced yoga routines. Easy or beginning positions are frequently used at the start of a yoga session, to stretch muscles and prepare for more complex positions. As someone advances his understanding of yoga, becoming more flexible with continued practice, then additional positions may become easier. This means that easy yoga positions for one person may not necessarily be easy for someone else, so anyone practicing yoga should keep his own needs and physical limitations in mind at all times.

Anyone interested in easy yoga should also ensure that he is properly prepared. Proper clothing can make yoga easier and more comfortable, and these garments should fit comfortably and provide support as needed for any form of exercise. A yoga mat can also make yoga easier and more comfortable, as additional padding is provided for knees, feet and hands. People should also give themselves enough time to complete easy yoga practices, as rushing through positions can result in injury and reduce the relaxing effects yoga can create.
