British business tycoon Andrew Konomanyi uses the practice of Yoga to stay healthy in body and mind. Having participated in the Eastern philosophy and physical exercise for years, Andrew offers tips to beginners who are just starting to explore the art of Yoga. He understands that Yoga can be intimidating. There are hundreds of poses, different styles of practice, and most of the terms are in a foreign language. By using his tips, you will have an easier time letting go of the details and simply relaxing into the routine.
First and foremost, Andrew stresses that having a space to do Yoga and the right equipment is a key to success. Fortunately, Yoga can be done just about anywhere where you have space to move around, you only need about twenty square feet, or a four foot by five-foot space. Unlike many other exercise regimes, you do not need a bunch of equipment to do Yoga, but you should definitely have a Yoga mat. These mats are specifically designed to stay in place on the floor so you do not slide around while moving from pose to pose. Most general retailers sell Yoga mats, and they are usually less than twenty euros.
Comfortable clothing is another item that Andrew Konomanyi suggests for all new Yogis. You do not have to spend a ton of money on a new exercise wardrobe, any clothes will do as long as they are comfortable and allow for free movement of all limbs and joints.
