There are many people who decide to start practicing yoga. But very few of them realize that it is extremely important to have an experienced instructor to learn the postures correctly. Professional help is very necessary while performing yoga. There are many classes which conduct yoga sessions to benefit the beginners. But before you join a class, there are few key points that you need to keep in mind to select the right class. The right class and Samadhi Center for Yoga instructors can help you master the art of yoga.
Before joining a class, you must ask yourself your motive to join yoga. Flexibility, strength, balance, improved breathing and posture are the major benefits of yoga. There are many styles, and you can decide on the type of yoga you want to practice by understanding your interest levels and the objective for learning yoga. Yoga can be practiced for improving health and fitness, for meditative practice, for spiritual discipline or as a philosophy. Yoga will help the body by improving physical strength and stamina and will help the mind by helping it to remain calm.
Importance of Instructor
The instructor is the key to your success in yoga practice. You must make sure that your instructor has the training and teaching experience. The instructor must be backed by the right academics and certification related to yoga. He/ she must be committed to safety and professionalism. The instructor should connect with you and should be able to understand your needs and help you accordingly. You should ask your instructor if yoga is suitable for you. If yes, he/ she should suggest a style of yoga that is suitable for you keeping in mind your goals. It is also important for you to discuss your medical conditions, if any, with the instructor, so that he/ she can plan your practice accordingly.
Always plan to arrive at your yoga class several minutes early; this gives you time to get into the ideal state for beginning your session. When you rush to get there and arrive at the last minute, you’re still carrying baggage from your day, and it takes longer to get into the flow of the class. When you arrive in time to have a drink, use the bathroom, and do some stretches or deep breathing exercises, you’ll be well prepared when the class begins.
Find an intention to focus on during your yoga class. Such an intention may be something like developing greater calm in volatile situations, becoming more tolerant and loving, enjoying healthy nourishing foods, or maybe taking more time for spiritual practices. Provided the intention is positive and reflects the tenets of yoga it is a good intention.
If you have been experiencing any physical problems or illness recently let your yoga instructor know, as they can advise you on poses you shouldn’t attempt (or can offer a modified pose), and can assist if you have any problems. If you are relatively new to yoga, you should also let your instructor know, as there will be poses you can’t do without causing a strain or an injury. While you may be anxious to reap the full benefits of yoga quickly, everything worthwhile takes time, and yoga is no exception! Take it easy and work within your limits. Trying to do too much too soon may end up doing you more harm than good, and goes against the philosophy of yoga, which is geared towards healing.
It’s a nice idea to take time after practicing yoga to contemplate the class. It’s all too easy to step out of the yoga class and throw yourself headlong back into the rush of life, forgetting the whole reason for doing yoga. If you can maintain the peace and serenity gained in the class for some time afterward, it’s very beneficial. It can take a long time for beginners to learn all the yoga poses. If a beginner can take the time to focus on remembering just one or two new poses each class, it won’t be long before they’ve mastered the basics.
Ideally, go to your class on a fairly empty stomach (don’t eat for two to three hours before starting a class), as the process of digestion takes energy and can make you lethargic, and it’s also possible to get cramps or nausea if you exercise too soon after eating, especially when doing moves that involve the midsection (including deep forward bends, twists, and inversions).
Maximizing your yoga practice is simple if you can take the right mindset to class, and focus on a beneficial intention throughout the yoga practice, which also assists in removing worrying thoughts from the mind. A positive outlook during a yoga class and the maintenance of positive feelings afterward is one of the best things you can do.
