Trini: Beginners

beginners_1Practicing yoga is a commitment to yourself and can be a challenge, for your body and your mind. I teach in the traditional method. This ensures that you are proceeding at your own pace, learning correct alignment, vinyasa, breathing and sequencing. This method reduces stress, injury, and sets you on your own journey to an empowered practice.

Some notes for beginners:

  • It's no secret: practice makes perfect. You will develop an ease to your practice sooner and learn new postures more quickly if you are practicing three or more times during the week.
  • It's not supposed to hurt! If it does, tell an instructor. We'll hopefully be able to tell you why it hurts, and what to do to make it stop.
  • Learning new things is frustrating! That's why we encourage you to take it slow. And let an instructor know if you're feeling frustrated, or angry, or emotional. It's part of the process and believe me, we've all been there too!
  • Ladies, no practice during the first 2-3 days of your menstrual cycle. This is called 'ladies holiday' and it's meant to be a holiday. If you must practice, do not practice any inversions.
