I know that there are plenty of people who think that yoga isn’t for them. I’m not saying that regular practice is for everyone – not everything is. But I’m here to help debunk a bias against it you might already have.
Hold positions for a shorter period of time, moving regularly. A yoga teacher I worked with once told me that these positions are held for 5-10 seconds. This obviously might not be the official number, but it gives you an idea. In my experience, I would barely get settled in a position and then we would switch. The goal is to keep moving.

Hold positions for a longer period of timing, moving rarely. The same yoga teacher told me that these are held for 3-10 minutes. These positions are usually also supported with props so that you don’t hurt your body by holding these positions for so long.
You don’t have to be a super duper health nut to try yoga! You don’t have to start eating or drinking anything new just to ry it, or even to practice it regularly. There’s no contract or rules that go with it.
