Yoga Tips For Beginners
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
