Why Couldn't I do that?
Feeling of an ego or competition causes the greatest harm in yoga. No matter it is a class setting or your home, you shall be doing yoga for your peace of mind and relaxation of body. Yoga generally is practiced in groups, so being in group always remember that you are a beginner.
In the starting week of yoga, you might not be able to do many asanas properly. The reason behind it is that your body becomes stiff as time passes and when you bend for asanas, it does not smoothly let you do that. But there is no need to worry about that. As time will pass and you will practice, all the asanas will become easier for you. Do not ever overstretch your body for any asana. Give it a time and soon you will be doing it perfectly.
Which Asana Shall I Do?
Experts advise that you must not go for single asana. Adopt multiple asanas and practice daily. Initially you can spend less time and can practice for perfect postures. The postures are more important than timing so try to achieve the perfection in each posture. Slowly extend your timing as per the expert's advice.
Can I Do It Myself?
You must not do it without guidance if you are a beginner. Contact a professional trainer and take training for the perfection of asanas, its timings and the depth of stretch. Once you are trained enough, you can surely do it yourself even at your home.
What is the perfect place and environment for Yoga?
Yogasana is best when done alone in a peaceful place from the view of meditation but for beginners, it is good to join a class sitting. In group, you get to learn things quickly by each other's help and thus classes are initially fine but once you learn to do it perfectly, seek for some peaceful space like garden for your yoga practice.
