NO FLEXIBILITY REQUIRED
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR FIRST CLASS:
Not only water, but electrolytes to prevent possible headaches and cramping. Signs of dehydration include headache and nausea. Also, come to class on an empty stomach; allow 2 to 3 hours.
Be clean, quiet, and respectful to others. Yoga practice is as much about how you treat others as it is about how you care for yourself.
ARRIVE ON TIME
Plan to be at the studio 15 minutes before class to register and settle in. Bring a yoga mat, two towels and a big bottle of water with you. Wear comfortable workout clothes and prepare to sweat a lot; the room is heated to 105F.
BE KIND TO YOURSELF
For your first class, it is a victory to simply stay in the heated room for the entire 90-minute class. Feel free to sit down or skip a posture or two as your goal is simply to breathe normally. You'll see improvement over time.
FOCUS & CONCENTRATE
Be as still as possible between poses. Hatha yoga is a disciplined practice in concentration. It is as much a mental exercise as it is physical, creating a true mind and body connection.
The 5 Key Mental Aspects PURE YOGA Cultivates
It takes discipline to simply showup for class. Once you are there, 90% of work the work is done!
Exercise your powers of concentration to focus on each pose and each breath, and continue to stay still in-between poses.
No problems if you fall out of a posture. Getting back in just one more time builds up your will power!
During your yoga journey, not only will your class improve, but notice the changes outside the yoga room. Confidence and faith in yourself will serve you a lifetime!
You will continuously find small successes in your yoga practice in each pose. Don’t focus on the outcome (how the pose looks). Just try the right way, and good things will happen.
