If you are starting a yoga class, you will probably need to learn at least some of the basic yoga poses.

Just remember that these are basic poses, so you may need to adjust your poses to meet the demands of your students or any other restrictions you have.

The basic pose is the sun salutation. This is one of the most popular yoga poses for beginners to learn, because it is easy to do and does not require any complex poses. There are many variations on this basic sun salutation, and you should work with your teacher to decide which one you feel most comfortable doing. There are several types of sun salutations, including the tree pose and the cross-legged sun salutation.

Challenging Yogasana Types

One of the more challenging yogasana types for beginners is the knee stretch. This stretch involves bending both knees, extending the hip, and raising both arms. A difficult part of this pose is keeping the knees straight. You can try to stretch them out a bit more, but keep them straight at all times. You may also stretch your inner thighs by doing a few stretches like the tree pose, or doing some stretches to your outer thighs like the sun salutation.

The basic sun salutation is the butterfly pose. This type of yoga pose works with a couple of different muscles: the hamstrings and the quadriceps. They will both be stretched by the forward bend in this pose. There are several poses that are good for beginner yoga poses, and the butterfly pose is one of them. You can start off with the basic version and move on to more difficult ones as your body gets stronger.

Crab & Warrior Pose 

Other yoga poses include the crab pose and the warrior pose. Both of these poses work with more muscles than the sun salutation, but they are still fairly simple. Both of these poses are pretty much the same as far as how they work with the muscles, so it is easy to figure out what is going on. This is a great place for a beginning yoga class to start, because it allows you to get some practice with a variety of poses.

Another type of yoga poses that is common is the backbone, because of its usefulness as a warm-up for other different yoga poses. In this pose, you bend your back at the waist and extend your arms and legs. You may also stretch your inner thighs and your lower back with this pose.
