- what will the yoga studio be like?
- where will I park?
- what do I wear?
- will I be the odd one out?
These thoughts are all really normal. And before I answer these questions, I think there is a bigger fear to address.
Deep down, the thing we fear about starting something new for the first time is “what if I’m not very good?”
You see, to start anything new we have to be willing to be a beginner and be prepared for the fact that we might not be very good. And starting yoga for the first time is no different.
If we haven’t done something before, how can we expect to be good at it?
In our Beginner’s Yoga Classes, we don’t expect that you can touch your toes or know the names of the poses.
We know that your first yoga class will probably be awkward. As a yoga studio for beginners, we do our best to make you feel relaxed, comfortable and welcome for your first yoga class.
Our Beginner’s Yoga classes are gentle and have lots of instructions. We take the time to explain the poses to you and how to adapt the poses to suit your body.
We’ve been teaching Beginner’s Yoga Classes in Brisbane for over 7 years, and we are experts at helping people to feel comfortable in their first yoga class.
- none of them will know the moves
- none of them will be particularly flexible
- everyone will be so focused on themselves they won’t notice what you’re wearing or whether you can do the pose or not.
The important thing to remember about yoga is that everyone is just focused on themselves. In yoga, we encourage you to pay attention to how you’re breathing and the sensations of the pose. This means that you don’t have time to look around the room to see what everyone else is doing.
There’s no judgement or competition. Everyone is there for their own reasons, to get fit, lose weight, to feel better in their body, to calm their mind and feel less anxious. If you’re self-conscious, it can be a huge relief to realise that when you’re on your yoga mat, no-one is paying you any attention except for the teacher.
Thinking of starting yoga?
If you’re thinking of taking the plunge into yoga we have a few tips to make it easier for you:
- Attend a Beginner’s Yoga Course – here you will be surrounded by people who’ve never done yoga before.
- Join with a friend – having a buddy to practice with makes it less intimidating and more likely you’ll stick with it.
- Try an Introductory offer
