TIPS FOR A GREAT CLASS

  • Listen carefully. Our teachers are there to help you and take care of you. Let the instructions work their way into your body and heart. 

  • Take a break on your mat if you need to. Please stay in the room to stay acclimated to the heat. Each day is different; sometimes the best thing we can do for our body is to kneel down and take a rest.

  • Everyone is at a different level; don't compare yourself.  A good tip is to accept where you are at each day without judgement, and let your practice serve you from there.  

  • Remember to breathe. Work less, breathe more! Your breath is your connection to your nervous system.  The more calm and steady you are as you work your way through class, the better you will be able to meet the challenge of the poses, and the better you will feel!

  • Do your best to stay in savasana for at least 2 minutes after class, and feel free to stay even longer!   Savasana allows your body, heart rate and breath to normalize, and gives you time to assimilate the benefits and gifts of your practice.  And it just feels so darned good to lay down and rest, relax and simply be before moving on to the rest of your day.

  • Replenish with electrolytes– think coconut water, sea salt, watermelon juice, or an electrolyte supplement.  This will help prevent headaches and cramping.

  • Take a second class within 1-2 days. This will help you to learn the series, get used to the heat, and maximize your benefits. You will feel amazing!

WHY PRACTICE YOGA?

Yoga is a journey of ever expanding awareness.  Through the movement of our body and breath, and further through our meditation practice, we learn how to focus the mind.

Yoga is an ongoing practice that allows us to discover and uncover a deep sense of peace & happiness that lies within us;

our practice is a way to stay connected to the truth of who we are.  

Yoga impacts your whole being and it's benefits are far reaching, weaving their way throughout all aspects of your life.

Side effects & blessings of a consistent asana practice include:

  • an overall sense of well-being for body, mind & spirit

  • a stronger and more supple body

  • improved health 

  • deeper awareness of body and breath 

  • a deeper sense of empowerment that arises through the expanding awareness of yourself  

  • a deep cleansing and detoxification that occurs through the stretching and sweating

  • yoga makes you feel REALLY, REALLY GOOD :) 

Yoga is neither a competition, nor a performance. You receive maximum benefit by showing up and doing your best, whatever that may be from moment to moment!  Your practice is a way to connect with your body in a reverent, respectful, compassionate and loving way. 

Your body is the instrument in which you get to play life!  Sooooo, we encourage you to show up consistently to receive the most from your practice. 

ALL classes are ALL LEVELS, and beginners are welcome & encouraged.  

See you soon!
