Beginner Yoga Chiang Mai
Beginner Yoga in Chiang Mai can be the perfect start for your yoga journey!
The real yoga journey begins with the deep desire to live more peacefully. Even though the majority of beginner yoga students may be totally unaware of that yearning, the thing that keeps every student of yoga returning to their mat over and over again, is the inner connection between body, breathe, mind and spirit.

WHY PEOPLE RETURN TO YOGA OVER AND OVER
Some people start yoga to work towards the thin, flexible yoga body, others to follow an attractive significant other into a hot sweaty room, and others in search of health or healing from disease or injury. There are also a few people who initially turn to yoga as an answer to the deep confusion and chaos of life and understand it to be a spiritual path. While most students of yoga do not start their practice for the same reasons they they ultimately continue with the practice for the same essential reason… that yoga as a spiritual discipline that leads the way into happiness, bliss and contentment
HOW OFTEN TO ROLL OUT YOUR MATT?
If you are completely new to working out your body you will certainly be sore for most of your first year of practice. Learn to embrace it. A good goal to set when starting off with the physical practice of yoga is to use your yoga mat at least three times a week (up to 6) for at least a 30 minute practice. the Sun Salutations offer a perfect routine for any beginner yogi to practice in their own space at home or at work until a more confident practice can be built upon over time. This will give you a small, attainable goal that you can integrate into your life quite easily.
With the interest in yoga growing every year, one thing that often hampers an inspired student’s ability to progress is the proximity to a qualified teacher. We are located in the heart of Chiang Mai, just a 5 minute walk from Thapae Gate which means we are easily reached for most people in Chiang Mai. More and more students are practicing at home with online classes, YouTube, DVD’s and books. While this is certainly better than not practicing at all, self-study ideally paves the way for a meeting with a true teacher who will provide the concrete direction needed to move confidently along the inner path of yoga.
