Recently I’ve been doing some research for content ideas. One thing that I keep seeing and is catching my attention is “yoga for beginners”. However, almost all of them contain intermediate/advanced yoga poses. So I have taken it upon myself to introduce 10 yoga poses you need to do everyday, with the complete beginner in mind.
Beginners poses are ones that are accessible. In other words, easy and gentle. Poses that can help with flexibility, and consistency. While, allowing you to feel successful in your practice. If you’re ready to start a yoga practice then this post is for you. In addition, I included a 10 minute yoga class of the 10 yoga poses to do everyday.
10 yoga poses to do everyday
So, as a beginner, what are the 10 yoga poses to do everyday? Certainly, they are easy ones! You need to build a yoga practice from the basics. Therefore, in this post I’ve included 10 of the basic poses. Subsequently there are no standing poses, no balance, no tricky stuff you need props for. Just basic poses, suitable for a complete beginner. The poses I chose for beginners are:
- cat – Bidilasana
- cow – Bitilasana
- child’s pose – balasana
- Downward dog – adho mukkha svanasana
- cobra – bhujangasana
- reclined pigeon – Supta Kapotasana
- Reclined twist – Supta Matsyendrasana
- happy baby – ananda balasana
- Corpse pose – Savasana
- easy pose – sukhasana
As a result of this post idea, I created a 10 minute yoga class ideal for complete beginners. You can view it below. Remember to save the videos to a playlist, check it out on YouTube for more options. For example, perhaps add it to a playlist. Above all, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel.

This is such a helpful reminder, thank you Di! Even though I’ve practiced for years over the last couple of months I’ve had far too many moments when I’ve lost inspiration, so it’s helpful to have a little guide so I can go back to basics with ease x
Yep sometimes we need to go back to basics and remember that yoga isn’t about the fancy poses!!! What’s your go to pose when practicing?
I am not a beginner but I do all of these poses very often. I would definitely call it my basic poses and routine.
Yep they are basic for beginners. Most people try to do tougher poses and get discouraged so I wanted to offer a class that is pure basics, and easily doable for the majority of people. What’s your favorite pose?
Thanks for sharing these poses. I am going to start to practice starting tomorrow.
awesome! let me know if you need any help!
Wait! These are really the names of these poses? Amazing. Some actually look like their names but the reclined pigeon though. 😀 I found this piece really interesting.
Hahaha yes. Sometimes the names of the poses crack me up!
Some are totally obvious (corpse pose) but others leave you scratching your head!

Thanks for this. I have started some of these exercises and I am happy I am able to do them. I should keep at it to improve my flexibility and then move on to more difficult poses later on.
Yes, start slow, build a practice THEN move to more challenging poses
Yes.. A slow start is always good. And these poses are good ones. I had a big accident in 2017 and due to which I can’t do yoga anymore. My right side is broken and my back was affected. Can u suggest some good poses?
I’m gonna email you! without knowing the specifics I wouldn’t want to give you something you struggle with.
That’s just right for me. I’ve not really done yoga unless you count a few poses in an aerobic class a few years back. This will be useful as I did want to start doing something like this daily.
100% perfect for daily yoga. Great intro to starting a practice
This is exactly what I need, to start with something gentle, being trying to start all the time but never seem to find the way to do, this looks doable!
Definitely doable! Relaxing, and easy way to start a yoga practice
This is brilliant. It looks like a great way for me to start improving my flexibility and fitness. I will start having a go at doing these for 10 mins each day, thank you 🙂
You are welcome! It’s a great intro to yoga!
