4 Easy Beginner Yoga Poses
With the help of Poise Thin Shape, Yoga can be stress free again!
When I was first approached by friends to join them at their yoga class, I was hesitant (to say the least). I am not a huge fan of scheduled, structured exercise of any kind. Most of my activity comes from doing things like garden work, fishing, kayaking and such. There is just something about pre-planning an exercise routine that makes me simply want to skip it, suddenly I am a child. You know, the whole I don’t want to do it because you told me I HAVE to. Yes.
Giving In To My Stubborn Ways
I live in Maine where the winters can be so long and literally put you into a hibernation. This past spring I noticed how out of shape I was for the first time ever. Preparing the garden and performing our normal spring chores was really hard on me. I decided that no matter how much I hate a regular exercise routine, I needed one. We cleared out a room in the house, added a treadmill, home gym machine, yoga mat and a few other necessities. Yippee…. no really, I was actually kind of excited. I would rather exercise at home than in a gym or class.
A few times a week I hop on the treadmill and use the home gym. In addition, I started using a really easy beginner yoga poses app. This was my first time doing yoga. One of the beginner poses I tried first was the Child’s Pose. Almost instantly I felt it happen. Light bladder leakage. Not enough to be embarrassing if I was in public, but just enough to be uncomfortable. I thought to myself “fantastic, I finally decide to try yoga and something like this happens”. I mean, it has happened before very lightly when I laugh or sneeze. I am a mom, I gave birth to two girls, apparently a weak bladder is something you give in trade.
So, that was fun while it lasted. Yoga is not suppose to be stressful. I don’t want to worry about leakage every time I do a yoga routine. My husband convinced me that was a rather harsh decision. He was right. I asked a few of my yoga friends and they all recommended wearing a line, like Poise Thin Shape. A few of them actually even laughed at me wondering why I attempted yoga without one. I assumed they would be uncomfortable, feel wet and not stay in place.
Regardless of how unhappy I was about this, I tried the Poise thin shape liner. They are pretty thin, I would guess to say almost half as thick as a traditional pad. They have Leak-Block channels on each side of the pad and a Dry-Touch top layer that wicks moisture away from the body. This combined with a 3-1 light bladder leakage protection, odor control and thin flex design is great for keeping you comfortable, one of the things I worried most about. The best part? The liner stays put through my yoga routine, I almost forgot I was even wearing it.
So, if you have put off exercising or yoga due to fear of bladder leakage, try Poise Thin Shape. #SeizeYourPoiseMoment. You will feel more confident and stress free.

4 Easy Beginner Yoga Poses
Mountain Pose – Stand on your left foot, right foot up placed flat against your inner thigh of the left leg, knee bent outward. Place palms of hands flat against it each other in front of you, elbows pointing out.
Standing Tree– this is a great pose for stretching and aligning your back, while concentrating on balance. Start in the mountain pose, except instead of holding your hands in front of you, raise them up over your head.
Child’s Pose– Start by kneeling on the floor, arms straight above your head and thumbs touching (hands side by side). Lean forward all the way, keep arm straight out and place head as close to the floor as possible.
Cobra Pose– this is easy to do from the Child’s pose. Lay flat on your belly, head down, arms to the side. Push up just the upper half of your body and hold. Bend head slightly back.
Remember to breath in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Concentrate on balance and your breathing.
Yoga should never hurt, do not strain your muscles.
Try a few yoga poses before working out, it is a great way to warm up muscles.
Do yoga outdoors in the fresh air, it really opens up the lungs.
Wear a liner like Poise Thin Shape if you experience light bladder leakage.
I hope I was able to help kick start your work out routine, whether it be yoga or even daily activities. Try Poise products and feel more confident!
