It can’t be stated enough that yoga is a unique type of exercise in the sense that it is both a practice of physical and mental discipline. An inspired yoga practice will be void of comparison, competition or over-exertion. That being said, many yoga practitioners see others performing poses full of strength and beauty and feel the desire to work towards advanced postures.

Here we’ll explore six advanced postures and the foundational poses that can help prepare your body for introducing them into your practice.

Let these six poses inspire you to continue practicing and building strength. Always listen to your body to avoid pushing yourself too far. If any part of these postures is not available to you right now, work on the preparatory posture right before it to continue to increase your strength and flexibility. Remember, yoga is not about what someone else can do, but about your journey from where you are right now to where you want to be.
