1. JOIN A SMALL GROUP.
If 20 people are in the class, the teacher is unlikely to be able to give you enough attention. Before you sign up for a lesson, be sure to check the number of participants. The optimal number of practitioners is up to 7-8 people. In this case, the teacher will be able to follow each student, and you will not think that you were left to their own devices. And at the same time find out how the lesson is built. If the whole group on command simultaneously performs a certain set of asanas – this is not too great. You will feel much more comfortable if the teacher gives each participant individual recommendations. This is important for yoga, not only for the full, but for all beginners.
2. SELECT YOUR YOGA SCHOOL
There are many areas of yoga, it is because of this that Oriental practices have so many admirers: among various styles, everyone can choose their own activities. Ashtanga and Iyengar usually offer more dynamic practices – in such classes you will spend more effort, but they can be more difficult. Representatives of Kundalini more often work with energy, and classical hatha yoga offers a set of simple asanas, which nevertheless perfectly tidy up the metabolism and help get rid of the complex due to body imperfections.
3. BEFORE THE LESSON, TALK WITH THE TEACHER.
The correct yogi is a calm and friendly person. Directly tell the teacher that you feel uncomfortable and are not sure that you can master the program. Ask if these yoga classes are suitable for the full. A good teacher will surely reassure you and during the lesson will show lightweight versions of asanas that will surely be affordable for any beginner. Also ask for a daily homework program. Yoga is a regular practice, and if you practice at least half an hour at home every day, then soon get ahead of all those who practice only in a group. If the teacher is not too attentive or is not too considerate of you, look for another group. The personality of the teacher is one of the key points in yoga, and if you did not like the person, you are unlikely to go to classes often.
