Take an Intro to Yoga class
Tibetans and people who practice yoga know that many simply aren’t yet comfortable or confident enough to begin practicing. Some think it sounds too much like another stretching and stretching exercise for which they feel so out of sorts.
In essence, yoga is a mixture of form, culture, and life philosophies, depending on the person who does it. There’s an infinite amount of information, to put it best, in its path that translates into a pre-school to advanced level of practice.
For the adventurous souls of modern day, this should be no problem, but for others, it’s a bit more of a challenge, as it also means the journey has begun. The first step in getting started is learning the basics of how to enter the practice in a confidence way.
Having experienced what the first few poses look like and what is required to follow through, you will find the red flags and rejection you seek not too hard to avoid. But, you won’t ever know how not to do it by staying on the same path, which is why getting started is important. But, what’s essential is to ensure you’re in a creative frame of mind at all times, to consider that starting out is a byproduct of arriving there.
In other words, just because someone started from the beginning doesn’t mean they’ll “get” it, or won’t struggle or, if you go to class once every two weeks, five weeks, and then stop again will suffer from inadequate practice and stagnation.
But, if you take an Intro to Yoga class, don’t be nervous about making up a challenge at the end of the class, but if you’re already starting off on the same path, you may need something a bit more challenging at the beginning, as well as a bit more friendly. The key is to challenge yourself to move ahead and not try to endure negative elements that are put in front of you, but give them grace.
Afterward, go back to your hotel room and look into volunteering, taking a trip to India, or study abroad, as they will present some of the best opportunities to get started.
Think Up a Yoga Practice Based On Your Experience
A complete novice doesn’t need to create an entire course, Yoga poses or not, for the first few practices. All she’ll need to do is learn where she stands, her body type, and her thoughts and experience to produce something “fit.”
Good for a beginner’s introduction is to conjure up a form that you feel comfortable with, that you can easily follow without too much stress.
At the same time, fear of failure (by self, by the person demonstrating the practice), and respect for the knowledge and sensitivity you have of your body, and/or experience of your heart, heart and mind will become more meaningful if you choose a style, course, or orientation that’s where you’re most comfortable. So, choose wisely.
