What to Bring to Yoga Class

You don't need to be flexible or even fit to begin a Yoga practice. You will benefit from the poses even if you can't do them fully at first, as long as they are done correctly and without forcing.

Beginners tend to be in a hurry and strain in order to achieve perfect postures (asanas), when much more benefit is gained by relaxing and taking it easy.

There is no competition with others in the class nor with yourself. There is no reason ever to strain in Yoga, the asanas are not exercises. "Asana" means a posture to be held for a comfortable length of time. There is no place for quick movements or strain in the practice of Yoga.

When you come to class, please wear loose, comfortable clothes and bring a towel, mat or blanket to sit on. Avoid eating a heavy meal at least 2 hours before class.

If you plan on practicing yoga on a regular basis we highly recommend that you buy your own yoga "sticky mat". Yoga "sticky mats" are specifically designed for yoga practice and help to avoid hands or feet slipping in certain poses. Locally, you can often find inexpensive yoga mats at K-Mart, Walmart, Costco and Borders. Yoga blocks and straps are sometimes included in yoga "kits" and are helpful props to own.

Generally, it is not recommended to begin asanas during pregnancy. However, you may speak to your instructor for further information.

Please fill out a HEALTH PROFILE FORM and bring it to class with you.

Please arrive 10 minutes early and bring your positive energies.
