New To Yoga
Never practiced yoga before? Or perhaps you took a yoga class a long time ago, and you’d like to try it again?
Maybe you want to try something new, or a friend, family member, or your doctor recommended it. I’m so glad you’re willing to try yoga. You may have heard yoga is great for increasing flexibility, helping with depression, injuries, and calming your mind. But you may be thinking: “Yikes, I don’t know anything about this yoga thing. I can’t even touch my toes.”
When I first tried yoga, I was so stiff. I couldn’t follow what the teacher was doing, and I couldn’t keep up with everyone. I found out that the yoga instructor (at the gym) had only completed a one-weekend fitness course on how to teach yoga.
It was only when I was guided by an experienced teacher who broke down the poses, did I feel safe and start to open up more. I started to notice an improvement in my life – my outlook on life and how I handled stress.
I look forward to seeing you in a class.
