I love doing yoga. I wish I did it more often, but I'll admit I don't have a buddy to go with, so I don't make it as often as I want. I typically take advantage of the free yoga options in my area. I'm outside of Washington, DC, so there are multiple locations, both indoors and outside, that offer free classes. Be sure to check for options like this in your community. If you're looking to get into yoga, here are a few yoga tips for beginners to get you started.
Yoga Tips for Beginners
- Don't worry about what anyone else is doing. Focus on holding the poses the best you can.
- Use the buddy system when you're starting out. You'll be more motivated to practice. (I should really take my own advice, I know!)
- Make sure you have comfortable clothing and well-made gear because it will make a difference.
- Practice at home. There are soooo many easy to follow Yoga lessons available on YouTube.
I highly suggest the Tapas Ultra Mat (it's in the Amazon list below). It might be more expensive, but it's 1/4 thick, instead of the standard 1/8 inch. It really makes a difference! It's made in Georgia.

I would love to win the Zafu Meditation Cushion covered in the Graphic Graphite fabric. This would be wonderful for meditation and the colors would look lovely with my decor.
Issues are making running something I can no longer do, so yoga is something I’m exploring. I’d love the Piccolo Silk Eyebag with Flaxseed Filling and if I win, I want my bolster and pillows in celery.
I have tried meditation. It does work. My problem is I get distracted because I have an ample posterior and I can’t seem to get comfortable when sitting, While I’ve lost weight (and continue to do so!), they say the legs and the butt are the last to go…and while some would think being a bit more plush in the posterior would make things easier when sitting…it isn’t. I believe that using the Zafu Meditation Cushion would make it easier to meditate without feeling the urge to squirm around and shift my weight to be comfortable.
The neck pillow is something I especially want for riding the train.
I always use a neck pillow. Helps with back pain. Great prize! Yoga is good for all types of rheumatic disorders, stretching is important in controlling pain. I know it works for me.
I have not tried yoga yet, but everyone I know that does it loves it!
We like to travel and these items would come in very useful.
I travel a lot, and these would be perfect to take with me on my journeys so I could relax well at the end of the day. I would choose the Jade peachskin color.
I could use these for my morning stretching exercises. Thank you!
It would be great during a fibromyalgia flare day.
I like the Carmel Lotus Print cushion the best!
I’d love to add this to my new yoga “nook” in my house 🙂 I love the jade color for the neck pillow and the plum color for the cushion
I did yoga when I was pregnant and stopped after my daughter was born. I’m getting back into it, so this would be great!! I love the jade color neck pillow.
