Yoga Tips For Beginners

July 31, 2014 2 min read

A while back I did a blog about yoga poses for beginners, but thinking about it now, there’s more to yoga than just the poses. For anyone wanting to try yoga, just starting out in your practice, or even experienced yogis looking for a refresher, I’ve compiled some quick tips for yoga beginners:
  1. Come early and be prepared. Get to class 15 minutes early to sign in, get yourself situated, get a vibe for the place, and snag a spot at the back.
  2. Take advantage of studio offers. Not sure yet if yoga is for you? Most studios offer some really great introductory deals. You can get a feel for different types of yoga, different instructors, and the studios themselves very inexpensively. Take advantage of a few of these, I tried bikram and moksha yoga to see what they were like before deciding to stick mainly to my power yoga studio.
  3. Go with a friend. I am notorious for dragging my friends to yoga, so if you have a frequent yoga-goer in your life they will most likely love to do a class with you. You’ll feel much less awkward with a pal by your side.
  4. Don’t compare yourself to others. That being said, definitely use them for guidance. My pro-tip, when you really don’t understand a pose, pretend to need to grab a sip of water and check out what everyone else is doing. 5. Take it easy, don’t push yourself. A lot like the previous comment, yoga is definitely not a competition. Don’t feel bad if you can’t do a pose right away, you’ll improve over time. Especially when it comes to hot yoga, if you feel dizzy or overly tired then listen to your body and rest.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
