Maybe you have gone to some few classes or you are planning to go or you may really want to go. Well, we will help you right here. Just study some of the top 10 foundation postures which will form the basis of the things you must do as a new beginner.


DOWNWARD FACING DOG  
This name is almost a synonym of Yoga. Because you normally hear of this pose, it does not mean that it is easy to do. In this posture, beginners often shift themselves far forward. This makes it to look more of a plank. So, you must remember to keep your weight in your butt high, legs and heels to reach towards the floor.
Bending your knees a lot or a little is one of the most acceptable modification for those people who have tight hamstrings. At long last, this post becomes your resting poster.


MOUNTAIN POSE 
This one may not be as popular as downward facing dog but it is one of the most important. This is the best moment to talk about the alignment; the way is our parts of the body are ideally arranged for every pose. 
The alignment in this pose draws a very straight line from crown of our heads to our heels, the pelvis and shoulders stacked along a line on the way down.
A very good teacher will take you through this in a class.


WARRIOR 1
The most important thing to do in this posture is to ensure your hips are forward facing. Roughly, they should be parallel to the front side of your mat. Sometimes it will be very good if you move your feet's into a wide stance.


WARRIOR 2
Unlike our warrior 1, here the hips are to face the sides of the mat. When one is moving from warrior 1 to 2, shoulders and hips should both open to the side. This movement is even done in other classes apart from that of beginners. You need to aim your front thigh parallel to the floor.


EXTENDED SIDE ANGLE
The accepted modification here is bringing your forearm to the thigh instead of bringing your hand to the floor. This allows an individual to stay open across his or her shoulders.


TRIANGLE POSE  
Here, you need to ensure you have a yoga block handy specifically for your bottom hand. You may also decide to rest your hand on your leg though you must avoid putting directly on your knee. Just familiarize yourself with micro bend and apply right here.


CAT COW STRETCH
This might be one of the most important pose you get to know when beginning yoga, more so when you have back pain. Even if you did not manage to attend classes, continue with this pose for your spinal fitness.


STAFF POSE  
This is just but a seated equivalent of mountain pose. You need to just seat on a folded blanket or 2 if you get trouble sitting uprightly with your butt flat on floor. 9. COBBLER POSE E- If your knees are far away above the hips in positioning then it will be good for you to sit up on things like blankets in this pose. This pose normally stretches some neglected parts of our bodies as we rarely sit in this posture.


CHILD POSE  
This is really important. This is the only position you will be in a position to assume when you are in a Yoga class without having to hear for break time from the teacher yet you are fatigued. It is all you as a baby.
To conclude, this are just some 10 Essential Yoga Tips for Beginners. There are more and more tips you will learn from your teacher when you are in for your classes.
