HELPFUL HINTS!

·         Get there early: Arrive at least ten minutes before your yoga class to get a spot where you feel most comfortable.

·         What to wear: Wear clothing that is both comfortable and made from breathable fabric (like cotton, bamboo or jersey).

·         After you arrive: Take off your shoes and socks in the room. 

·         Communicate: Before class starts, introduce yourself to the instructor. Tell the instructor whether you have any injuries, especially a recent one, so he or she can give you modifications.

·         Breathe: It's common for new students to hold their breath during yoga poses they find challenging. Breathing deeply can help you relax. In the beginning, don't worry about matching the instructor's breathing instructions exactly; just don't hold your breath.

·         Don't leave in the middle of Corpse pose: Most yoga classes end with Corpse pose, also called Sav asana (pronounced sha-VASS-ahnah). With this pose, you lie flat on your back, close your eyes, and relax. You never want to walk out of a class when they are in Corpse pose. If you must leave, do it before.

·         Namaste: Don't be scared off when your instructor bows her head as if in prayer, clasps her hands together in front of her heart and says, "Namaste" (pronounced nah-mas-TAY). You'll notice the class says it back as well. This Sanskrit word means "I honor you" and is normally said at the end of class.
