5 Things Your Yoga Teacher Secretly Wants You To Know

1.  You don't have to be "good enough" to do yoga.

There is no level of competency that you have to be at to start yoga.  Pick the class that's best for your current level of physical fitness and just do it!  If you're a beginner, go to a beginner's class!

2. Ask us questions!

We are here to help and would rather you ask us all your questions than you feel lost at a class or in a studio - alignment, etiquette, dress, mats, whatever you need - ask!  Just ask at an appropriate time ;)  Not during savasana! 

3. We understand that sometimes you need to leave early, but seriously, savasana IS the best part!

It really is.  It's the part where you work on the mind and clearing out our mental "junk."  So try not to skip that part if you can!  If you need to leave early, leave before everyone gets savasana - there's nothing worse than someone disrupting everyone else's peace at the end of class. 

4. There is NO "full expression" of the pose

Poses are as unique as individual bodies are.  The variation of the pose that is safest for your body IS your full expression of the pose. Listen to the cues of your teacher, we want you to practice safely for your body. And most of what you see on Instagram isn't safe....

5. Make friends with & be mindful of your neighbor!

One of the best parts about going to a studio is making new friends! Don't be afraid to say hello and start a conversation - unless your studio encourages silence before class (Yoga Story encourages community).  Connection to others is a big piece of a yoga practice! This also means that if class is getting full, make room for your neighbors, be mindful of cologne/perfume/body odor (especially in a hot class) & don't be afraid to be close to each other! It's good energy :)

As teachers, my purpose is to worry for you, encourage you & assist you. I want you to step out of the room knowing better than when you stepped in. help with assignment I would love for my learners to communicate with me if they tried with class for whatever cause at all! I want to teach as a society.

The worst part of it was that the software only worked intermittently and the data was not accurate. You obviously canot confront anyone about what you have discovered if the information is not right. Buckwheat
