As we gear up for National Yoga Month, celebrity yoga instructor Kristin Mc Gee and CoachClub.com are sharing their tips on how to get the most out of your rejuvenating yoga workout:
Strike a pose: Learn each yoga pose in Kristin'??s '??technical module'? pose gallery before actually putting it into practice to ensure proper form and to avoid injury. The gallery can be accessed by joining CoachClub.com, where membership is free until mid-September.
Concentrate: A proper yoga session practiced with the right attitude and breathing techniques can help you not only tone your body, but develop your mental focus, release negative energy and reduce stress.
Build your yoga prowess: Start with basic yoga poses and build on those to ensure understanding of more advanced postures and yoga terminology for safe transition from pose to pose.
Get your space ready: Create a comfortable environment to practice this activity that can help you strengthen the mind, body and spirit, as well as achieve a feeling of well-being.
Focus on the inside: Be childlike and joyful when approaching your yoga practice. Yoga is not a competitive sport; it is about finding a sense of balance, strength and power from within.
In celebration of National Yoga Month, Kristin'??s online yoga sessions are free to access on CoachClub.com, so visit www.CoachClub.com to get started on your yoga-fueled journey to health!
