Yoga Advice

By Sienna Nalin

Yoga can help center your mind and if you are thinking about trying yoga, here are some tips to remember to make sure your first time doing yoga goes smoothly. Over time yoga will get easier for you and you will be able to see the results in your mood and body appearance.

Arrive early: Head to the studio at least 10 minutes before the scheduled class in case there's paperwork to fill out or if you want to ask about any introductory discounts for new students.

Chanting: Some forms of yoga involve chanting. If you are not comfortable with doing that yet, don't do it then. If you are fine with it go ahead and give it a try.

Don't clench: If you want to be able to really relive some stress and get the most out of your yoga experience, you must be loose and not clench. With clenching your body parts you cannot really get a full experience.

Watch your breathing: With yoga you have to watch how you breathe and embrace it. Not only should you embrace it, but you should become calm from breathing and just relax completely.

Trust the instructor: Your instructor would not do anything to harm you at all. They are there to make sure that you get the full experience. Do everything at your own pace, the instructor will understand. You do not have to keep up with others. If you also come across an instructor that touches yogis to help them position, feel free to tell them not to, if you are uncomfortable with them touching you.
