Yoga serves up a wide range of benefits, from improving your sporting performance to helping you cope with stress. There have also been studies that link yoga to improved sexual endurance, so your girlfriend will reap the rewards, too. With some help from your smartphone — and Google — here’s how you can get started in yoga.
Find A Yoga Studio Near You
If you don’t know your Ashtanga from your Hatha, you can sign up for a yoga class. They’re becoming increasingly popular, so it’s simply a matter of which is most convenient for you. Search Google Maps (which you can download to your smartphone) to find a yoga studio near your home or office. Key in "yoga in Singapore", or "yoga at City Hall" if you want to narrow your results, and out will pop the findings including address and contact details.
Learn Yoga Postures With Google Images
There are plenty of images you can find online to help revise your yoga moves. A simple search for something like "hatha yoga" will throw up a slew of results. With your phone or tablet in front of you, it’s easy to check if you’re performing the technique properly based on the pictures you find.
Download A Yoga App
To really take your interest in yoga out of the classroom, download a yoga app from the Google Play store, like ‘Daily Yoga For Back‘ or ‘Yoga Workout Planner‘. These apps offer yoga classes on the go so all you need is a mat, your mobile device and a quiet room to do your thing. Aside from these two apps, there are other available yoga apps on the Android marketplace. Be sure to read the reviews before downloading.
Watch Yoga Videos On YouTube
YouTube is another great source of helpful yoga videos. You can find instructional videos for beginners, for specific moves and even subscribe to video channels dedicated to yoga training. Customise a playlist so you can park all your favourite yoga-related videos back-to-back and save yourself the hassle of finding them all over again. Say hello to your virtual yoga class.
Join A Google+ Hangout
Google+ hangouts are another way you can learn yoga. Use them to pick up tips and even live yoga lessons from professional practitioners like Danielle Herman. You’ll also get to interact with other yoga enthusiasts and who know what you might learn.
