The following five yoga poses are some of the most popular that you should strive to do and maintain when necessary. Like all things, yoga has a learning curve. If you're new to yoga, it may take a while to get used to this pose. Keep at it and you'll soon be able to do it.

1. Downward
This is definitely one of the most popular and common poses. To do this, kneel in a crawling baby position. Your palms will be right under your shoulders and your knees will be right under your hips.

From this position, open your fingers, move your palms forward a few inches, and raise your knees so your hips are off the floor. You should be in an inverted V-shaped position. Straighten your knees, but don't block them. Your head should be between your arms. Don't let it hang.

2. The mountain
This is a relatively easy position. Stand up straight with your feet together. Keep your arms at your sides and your shoulders relaxed. Slowly raise your hands until they are above your head. Take a deep breath and keep your palms facing each other. Raise your arms when you want to reach the sky. Take a deep breath in a relaxed way.

3. Warrior posture
This is the pose you see on the cover of most yoga books and DVDs. Itis is a fashionable pose that is very good for the body. To do this pose, you need to stand with your feet wider than your hips. Then, turn your right leg 90 degrees and slowly lower your body until your right knee is bent 90 degrees. Extend your arms at your sides, palms facing down. Hold this position for one minute, breathing in a gentle way. After that, change your position and repeat.

4. Posture of the tree
Another common position. You should stand up straight with your feet together. Slowly shift your weight onto your left leg and lift the sole of your right foot onto your left thigh. Then raise your arms above your head, palms together, as if in prayer.

5. The bridge
Lie flat on the floor. Keep your knees bent. Your hands must be at your sides and your back must be flat on the floor. Slowly raise your hips until your knees form an almost 90-degree Angle. Your arms will press against the floor for stability while keeping your thighs parallel to the floor. Tuck your chin in to avoid neck injury.

Here are some of the most common and beneficial poses that beginners should try. They will increase your strength and balance. As you progress, you can learn more difficult postures.
