Yoga Weekend Workout

It’s Friday, which means the weekend has arrived. And this weekend, it’s an extra long four-day weekend in the UK because of Easter. However, this probably isn’t going to be your usual bank holiday weekend.

With restrictions still in place on going out and seeing people, you might be at a loose end as to what to do. But with the weather looking reasonably good, it’s definitely worth getting out and making the most of your daily exercise allowance – even if it’s just a short walk around the block.

Even if you venture outside, your weekend workout doesn’t have to stop there. If you’re looking for something else to do to fill your time, then why not try some yoga?

What is Yoga?

If like me, you’ve never tried yoga before, then now could be the perfect time to give it a go. It’s an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost both your physical and mental wellbeing; which we could all do with looking after during these unprecedented times.

The main components of yoga are postures and breathing. But if like me, you’ve no idea where to begin, you’ll be pleased to hear I’ve found some home workouts to try.

Below are just a few to get you going; there’s even some more advanced workouts for those more familiar with yoga.

1. Yoga for Complete Beginners:

2. 10 Minute Morning Yoga Full Body Stretch:

3. 20 Minute Power Yoga (Intermediate):
