Yoga for Beginners

Yoga for Beginners

For anyone new to yoga, I extend a bonus hour of private lesson time.  This is to give adequate individual attention, with time to go over all the aspects of an Asana (physical) Yoga practice.  We can assess the body and see where modifications are necessary.  The intention is that, after, you will feel more comfortable going into a class having a basic knowledge of your body and better guidance as to what class works best for you.

In the distant past, Gurus had one-on-one attention with a student.  We feel that, if you are new to Yoga, this individual attention will start you off on the right foot, allow you to feel confident in your path, and keep you there longer.

Yoga is unique in comparison to other fitness disciplines.  The deep stretching, movement and breathing techniques are methods which take the student into a deeper awareness and appreciation for life.  The practice is supported by mindful attention and surrender to the present moment, without competition or goal-setting.  The only “goal” is to be where you are, enjoying your yoga!  No matter what your age, body style or level of flexibility, yoga can be a transformational experience.   All you need is an open mind and a willing heart!

What To Know Before Beginning Class

Yoga is for anyone regardless of age or ability.  Know that what you put into your yoga practice is what you will get out of it.  Stay at your level.  Listen to your body and only go to its limits.

Yoga is not only stretching, flexibility and strength.  We meet you in your practice wherever you are in your daily life.  You can start at any time, any age.  You are working within your own limits and abilities.  Classes are informal and we make you feel at ease.  Ask about our Yoga for Beginners Clinic, if you don’t know where to begin.

There will be a registration form to fill out your first time practicing.  Please allow yourself 5-10 minutes beforehand to fill this our, or you can fill it out online prior to coming to the studio.  You can then communicate any medical conditions you may have so that modifications may be given.

If you have a pre-existing medical condition please ask permission from your doctor before you add yoga to your regime.

Try to eat 1-2 hours before class or have a light snack.  If your body is digesting too much food during practice you will be uncomfortable.

Wear loose comfortable clothing and have a yoga mat or towel for your practice.

Teachers arrive 15 minutes prior to a class.

Water and mats are conveniently located on site for all that need them.

Always consider a Private Lesson.  These are geared for you to have time to assess your body, learn more about the aspects of a Yoga class, and to feel comfortable about attending classes.
