Beginner Yoga Is a Welcoming Place
Yoga has been around for thousands of years. It's been practiced in spiritual settings as a form of meditation, incorporated into gym classes, done on mountain sides and even in the space of one's own home. In recent years, yoga has become a favorite pastime in Columbus, but you don't need to develop a yogi lifestyle to enjoy the many benefits of the practice. For those who are new to this spiritual and physical practice, there are several things you should know about your first yoga lesson or class with Burgundie at Yoga Happiness Studio.
Experience Your First Yoga Lesson
The most important thing you need to know about a yoga lesson through Yoga Happiness Studio is that it will be tailored to you and or the class. For private in-home lessons, Burgundie arrives with her mat and a smile at your home 5-10 minutes prior to the start of the lesson to get set up and ease into the lesson. If you're attending a group class, arrive 5-10 minutes early just to become familiar with the studio.
Burgundie's positive attitude should relieve some of the anxiety around your first Yoga Happiness Studio yoga lesson, but as the class progresses there are a few things you can do to return the courtesy and help to encourage the same positive atmosphere:
- Leave your cell phone off or on silent and in another room. Yoga is a serene and spiritual practice. Don't bring the outside world in with you. Give yourself the chance at the relaxation and meditation you are seeking.
- Wear something comfortable and appropriate. Classical Vinyasa yoga often encourages more loose fitting and comfortable clothing. Wear something that you can move and bend in freely and that won't make a lot of noise as you shift from one pose to another.
If you schedule an initial meeting prior to your first lesson with Burgundie of Yoga Happiness Studio you will discuss your current level and experience with yoga. Burgundie will make sure you are comfortable with hands on correction of your poses as needed during the lesson. Modifications are offered for poses until you feel more flexible, comfortable, and confident.
If at any point you are feeling overwhelmed during the lesson, communicate that with Burgundie and enter a simple pose, like child's pose. This will give you a chance to relax your muscles and reset your mind so you can start again and enjoy the spiritual and physical benefits of the practice.
