The holidays are here, “New Year, New Me Syndrome” is developing… So if you’re interested in dipping your toes into yoga, we have a list handy!
This list will help ya when a friend tries to drag you to a yoga class you’re clueless about. Or when you’re just wanting to learn.
The Black yogis are just the inspirational icing on the cake! 🙂
This yoga practice involves a lot of fun flows and movements. Poses fluidly move from one to the next constantly, and is almost dance-like!
This is the all-encompassing type of yoga that anyone from a child to an elderly person can participate in. It requires you to pose, and hold that pose for a few breaths.

This isn't your typical yoga routine! It focuses on spiritual breakthroughs rather than the physical. So if you're looking for a class that taps into a more mindful-heavy practice filled with chants, and meditation... this is for you!
Intensity is a spectrum, like most things. So in the beginning, there is excitement, swirling clouds of light allowing alternating glimpses of hope and blindness. Swift shots of scattered emotions as the particles of life spread around you, creating a temporary cloak of invincibility. But then the dust settles. Promoting the burden of lost time in some parts, emptiness in others. It is here that love dies, in the confusing wasteland of poorly deposited atoms. But those who stay, endure, survive, adapt what burden they have while still loving... Those are star seeds of love 💫 #benddontbreak #poetry #writersofinstagram #yoga #yogaflow #yogini #blackyogi #blackyogasuperstars #blackgirlyoga #reflection #healing #grounding #growth #prayer #meditation #practiceandalliscoming #patienceandalliscoming #qwoc #locs #womenwithlocs #manifestation #gratitude #abundance #goddess #tajibtheyogini
It's almost like hot yoga, except there's are a specific 26 poses and two breathing exercises done during it. All last 90 minutes, and all should be in a room at 105 degrees Fahrenheit at 40% humidity. Whew!
I am strong. I am focussed. I am powerful and. I am so grateful for my body. I will not be defined by a number on a scale. Thank you @abondy71 for this kick ass pic today. Stay tuned everyone. Just finished filling a ton of content for Yogasteya.com This pose was a lifetime in the making. Patience resilience and empathy made it happen for me. Yoga is not these fancy poses but making peace with yourself so you can make peace with the world. #makepeacewithyourbody #reclaimingmyspace #reclaimingmytime @ybicoalition @yogasteya #yogaforall
It's like the Bikram yoga, except the teachers are free to teach whatever they please! Still hot and sweaty, still quite a workout!

For people who like to take it slow, and hold poses for what feels like an ungodly amount of time. This is the practice for you! Because you're holding moves for minutes, you're working deeper connective tissues and fascia.
“today I affirm to journey confidently and courageously, with or without company.” — @alex_elle . this applies to life in so many ways. for years I struggled with ‘fear of being ‘alone’ — I’m glad that my twenties gave me the gift of knowing when no one else is around I’m not alone, I’m with the best company ever, ME. .
If you're wanting to focus on form and anatomy, this is for you! This is great when you're struggling with range of motion and need something that feels safer. During this class you'll but using blocks, straps, and more!
My strength doesn't come solely from yoga. And much as I appreciate the spoils of industry and capitalism, I don't think humans are supposed to exist in boxes. We're meant to frolic among the elements. In order to feel like a happy and functioning human being, I require quality time in nature- and when I'm home in the Old North State, that usually means I'm wandering through the hills surrounding the Eno River or splashing like a five year old in the streams. I'm not the most time efficient hiker and I'm a very lazy swimmer- but it's all good bc I'm not in it for the accolades. The joy I feel when I'm outside is unparalleled- it's the only place where I truly feel like my most authentic self. There's no way I could try to be a #ForceOfNature on my yoga mat without a distinct connection to the true forces of nature in our universe. My strength isn't just about moving my body- it's about making a connection to the power of this earth. #sponsored @rei Photo by my love @justincookphoto
This is a gentle practice meant for you to relax. It even incorporates blocks, bolsters, and blankets so your muscles stay relaxed in positions while you relax! De-stress with this yoga practice.
"Many people say it in the context of 'your life is your choice' or 'as you think you become'. That touches your core because it reminds you of the importance with which your fears crept in. They seemed logical, and realistic, and responsible and they were as opportunistic as they come. They seduced you into a sexy position of complacency that only had to look good to you. They stirred you from the same pot your limits were decocted in."- D.Q. #yogachallenge #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #writing #writersofinstagram #blog #blogger #3cupsofgreentea #peace #love #prosperity Www.threecupsofgreentea.wordpress.com
