The Dos & (Please) Don'ts of Yoga Class

Yoga is a relaxing, rejuvenating experience that shouldn't leave you stricken with social anxiety. But if you're entering a class, here is the run-down what you should do and what you really shouldn't do when it comes to namasting!   The Dos Of Yoga Class
  • Loud breathing. It's cool - gasp and sigh away! You want to focus on aligning your breathing with your body movements so don't be shy.
  • Closing your eyes. It's all about relaxation and getting into a peaceful state of mind. Your teacher won't be insulted if you have to close your eyes to find your zen.
  • Crying. Sometimes this exercise can cause emotional release, so let it out. Your fellow students will support you.
  • Moderate farting. It happens. You're contorting in weird ways and putting pressure on your stomach at times, so naturally something may slip out.
  • Dozing off. Yoga is so calming, you may find yourself taking an unexpected nap.
The Don'ts of Yoga Class 
  • Bringing your phone. Don't zone out of your introspective time by answering a text or Snapchatting your feet on the mat.
  • Coming in late. Don't disrupt your fellow students by sneaking in, even if you think you're being quiet.
  • Chatting. Catching up with your neighbour can be done after class.
  • Not putting your mat away. If you're borrowing from the studio or gym, it's common curtesy to clean up afterwards.
