Are you thinking to finally start doing yoga?

It is not difficult and you can turn this relaxing activity into an everyday routine!

You can start off with minimum equipment. In fact all you need to have is comfortable shoes. You can get your all-around comfort shoes here at New Balance website (it is indeed one of the best brands for sneakers, UK version is here: New Balance UK). Otherwise you can do all the same things barefoot (although we love to have our morning yoga routine after a quick jogging session in nearby park).

So here are our favorite poses:

Downward dog

It is a resting pose, but it is quite physically challenging. Try to keep you legs straight and make sure to feel a good strech in the back of your thighs, calves and back!


This is another classical pose challenging your balance. The feet are spread wide. The body is facing forwards, so the hips remain in line with the feet, the body sinks down into a lunge until the front knee is bent at a right angle, and the arms are extended fully with the palms down, at shoulder level. The gaze is directed straight forward over the front hand.


Another easy but challenging and relaxing pose. It strengthens your spine, stretches chest and lungs, shoulders and abdomen. Combine it with a regular plank for more intense routine!

In case you choose to have your routine at home or in the park, we recommend you to consider buying some essential equipment. For example yoga mat is absolutely important so that you won’t damage your knees and elbows. Great news Maji has a yoga bundles with yoga mats, towels, pillows and many other accessories.

If you are not into yoga for a long time, you can still find essentials on your regular clothing website, for instance DressLilly offers quite decent yoga products.
