FIRST TIME TO YOGA?
You don’t need to know anything about yoga to start yoga. You don’t need to be flexible or athletic or agile or strong either! Come as you are, with an open mind and a good disposition and that is enough.
A Basics class is the best place to start if you are completely new to yoga or haven’t practised for a while. It will equip you with the fundamentals and core poses of yoga and help you build confidence to join a more experienced class later on. Other options to begin with are the Yin or Hatha classes which move at a slower pace and do not present complex poses. Teachers will offer modifications in all our classes so do not hesitate to ask for help if you are struggling.
Useful tips for beginners
- Work from where you are, not from where you think you should be
- Rest as you need, it’s not a marathon
- Learn by watching and listening to your teacher’s instructions
- Let go of what you don’t understand right away, we learn through repetition
- Be patient. It usually takes a few classes to get into a rhythm
CAN I DO YOGA WHEN I’M PREGNANT?
Please advise your teacher if you are pregnant. If you are brand new to yoga and would like to start attending classes please contact Isabelle email@example.com to enquire about the best option for you.
For the most part, if a student had a regular yoga practice pre-pregnancy, she can continue to practice in the way she is accustomed to as long as she feels comfortable doing so.
Remember however that there are some general safety guidelines to adhere to and modify a practice for pregnancy as you go along.
