Yoga is not an unusual form of exercise; it can be stimulating or soothing, social or meditative, energetic or relaxing/calm. Whatever yoga class you fit into, here are some tips to help you optimize your yoga.
- Do not eat before classes; yoga involves bending, stretching and a bunch of other moves. Having a full stomach could result in you feeling ill, having to exit the class early, make you miserable and not engage as much as you would like to.
- Inform your instructor about a bad back, sprained ankle, joints pain before any class, significant modifications will be made to the program to evade the worsening of your conditions.
- You need to be concentrated during yoga sessions, having your mobile phones with you either powered on or off, doesn’t help your classmates’ focus and your concentration too.
- Keep to time. Get to your classes early and don’t leave early, this divides up your instructor thought process, and you wouldn’t get as much out of it as you ought to be showing up moments late for an hour-long class.
- Respect all members of the group and your instructor. Don’t talk too loud, keep conversions to a minimum, bring your towel or mat with you and returning all props after use.
