The 90 minute class consists of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. The Certified Yoga instructor will guide and instruct you, always with compassion and respect. No one will judge you; there is no reason to be self conscious. It’s helpful to realize that peoples’ focus is on themselves. They are working too hard on their practice, their meditation, to notice the students around them.
Take note of how you are feeling during class. Always work to your edge, but listen to your body and inner wisdom. As a beginner, never be afraid to sit down if you need to. It’s normal, especially when you first get started, to feel dizzy, nauseous or lightheaded. It’s temporary, as your body acclimates and detoxes, these sensations will disappear.
What to Expect After Your First Class
You might feel tired after class. This is normal and a good sign that your body is cleansing. You might feel extremely energetic and have difficulty sleeping—this is a good sign the yoga is working and truly filling you up with energy. Take your second class within 24 hours. The second class is the equivalent of 3 to 4 classes, and you will bypass much if the soreness you’d experience otherwise.
Make up your mind not to judge this practice until you have taken 8 to 10 classes.
Life is always changing. The one consistent you can be sure of is this yoga practice. We do the same 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises in the same order, in every class. What is different is you. Come to Natomas Yoga Studio and get to know you.
