Join a live Yoga for Beginners class on Wednesday at 5.15pm or receive the recorded video to practice at home in your own time. Duration: 45 minutes. Live on Zoom.
We've all been here before so we understand how it feels to arrive for the first class. Let's give you some tips and dispel some common yoga myths:
• "Í can't touch my toes therefore I can't do yoga". Every body is suited to yoga no matter your body type or shape. There is not a single instruction or alignment cue in any of the hundreds of different yoga postures that requires you to do this. In other words, you should never hear a qualified yoga instructor to ask you to touch your toes.
• "I'm tired/hot/cold/exhausted/emotional/feeling bloated/having my period/hungry...". We advise you to show up on our mat under all circumstances and experience for yourself how yoga will meet you where ever you are.
• Before yoga class and general yoga etiquette:
Arrive on the mat with an empty stomach - a light meal 1.5 hours before class and a big meal at least 3 hours before.
If you cannot shower, wash your hands and feet.
Skip the body lotion and perfume.
Wear comfortable clothing that you can move around in, a fairly fitted top or one that you can tuck in. Remove shoes and socks.
No water is taken in during a yoga class.
Have something warm to cover yourself in savasana.
Keep off other mats when in the studio environment.
Noble silence inside the studio.
• After yoga class:
Float out quietly..
