For your first yoga class, be sure to bring a bottle of water, a towel and a yoga mat. If you don’t have these things, no worries, just ask instructor your yoga mat are free. Be sure to wear fitted exercise clothes, ideally ones that wick away moisture. First-timers should also get to the studio 10 minutes before class starts to meet your yoga instructor and ask any questions. No stress, No pressure, Have fun!
If you’re new to yoga we strongly suggest you start with a Basic class or Slow Vinyassa class. . These classes will help you learn about what yoga is now to breathe properly and how to move between poses. After coming a few times you can step up to Power Yoga class in order to challenge your body and mind!
Absolutely! In fact, you are the perfect candidate for yoga. Give it a try and over time you will notice that yoga helps you to become more flexible and stronger. Everybody is different, so never feel the need to practice poses exactly like the teacher: he is only there as a guide (and has been practicing yoga for over 15 years). Listen to your body, don’t force yourself and stay within your limits. Also, like any other exercise program, please consult your doctor before beginning to practice yoga.
Plan to practice on an empty stomach. If you need a snack, eat a piece of fruit or something light before class. One of the benefits of yoga is its detoxification of the body. Drinking lots of water will help flush the toxins out of your system, so do hydrate well both before and after class. As you don’t want to extinguish all the internal heat you are trying to build during class, if you need to drink while practicing, take small sips. Drink up when you’re done!
