Starting a yoga practice can be intimidating for a newcomer. The most common question I get asked is "Can I do yoga even though I'm not flexible?" And the answer is YES! Most certainly!! As Pattahbi Jois said "Body is not stiff. Mind is stiff".
Most of us start yoga because we have tight hips, shoulders and so on but there is so much more to the practice than just the physical side. It not only brings flexibility to the body but also brings flexibility to the mind. It opens us up on so many different levels, leading us toward a peaceful way of living.
When you show up for class, you will be moving through a series of asanas (poses) but also you will learn to link your breath with those movements. The yogic breath is called Ujjayi Breathing. The breath brings a calmness to the mind and relaxation to the body.
Listed below are a few tips to help get you started in your yoga practice:
*Let go of any expectations you may have
*Find a that you resonate with
*Learn to stay fully present in the moment
*Practice on an empty stomach
So you don't need expensive yoga pants to get started. All you need is an open mind! Give us a if you have any questions. We'd love to help you begin your journey.
