The 3 Best Yoga Tips for Beginners on Their First Yoga Class
Let Your Yoga Instructor Know It Is Your First Class: People walk in to a yoga class and rather than explain quickly to the instructor it is their first class they just try and go straight in.
The truth is the yoga instructor will know it is your first class by some of the movements you make so from the off just let them know.
This way they can keep an eye on you and anything they see you struggling with they will be able to modify the pose to help you adapt.
Focus on Your Breathing: Part of yoga’s benefits is to help you feel relaxed. If you go to your first class panicking about the movements then you lose focus of the basic principles.
Use your first yoga class to focus on your breathing and trying to relax in to the movement.
The breathing pattern will help you to feel relaxed and de-stressed.
Giving you a more calmer approach to the class.
Enjoy the Meditation: Meditation is amazing for mind-set and control. It allows you to gain focus and clarity on situations.
But for some people the meditation phase of a yoga class can make them feel uncomfortable in the sense of not really being able to do it.
Meditation takes practice and while you may spend your first few meditation sessions looking around the class, thinking of jobs you must do or counting down the clock, embrace the meditation.
It takes practice so what you learn in your yoga class practice each day at home.
