Practice Tips for Newcomers in Yoga

Watching a person perform the challenging hand stand and other complicated yoga poses comfortably, stuns many. However, this encourages some to take their nascent steps into yoga, while some back out on their decision to learn the poses, asanas and postures. Attaining the complicated asanas often seems impossible.

Tips to Move Forward

Yes, it is challenging. However, regular practice under the supervision of a trained and experienced instructor can make it possible. Moreover, beginning with a class of yoga for beginners is important to build a foundation that would not deter the student throughout the journey. Understanding the postures, terminology, breathing exercises (Pranayama ) is essential to move forward. These are taught in classes specially designed for beginners.

The first few classes may seem overwhelming. The language and environment may seem alien. It might also be discouraging.

So, here are some practice tips, which help students overcome the fears and unwillingness felt in the first few classes.

  • Staying Positive: A positive attitude towards learning is helpful. It is advisable to accept the mistakes pointed at by the instructor rather than get offended or embarrassed. It is important to understand that every person’s abilities are different. While one student can perform the pose in a few days day, the other may take a few weeks. Comparison must be thrown out of the window.
  • Be their own judge: Students must trust their own judgment about their yoga practice. They must understand what they can do and what they can’t. It is their body and only they can understand it best. Listening to the body and respecting it is the key to success.
  • Watch and listen: Witnessing the poses practically in a yoga class is the best way to learn. Watching the instructor and listening to the instructions carefully is the key to getting every pose, asana and posture right.
  • Asking Questions: As important as it is to listen and look, so is to ask questions when in doubt.

These practice tips when coupled with the right environment and instructors at Namastday promise success on the yoga journey.
