Admittedly, it took me a while to start enjoying yoga. Most of the classes I tried left me feeling bored or boring, until I found a new yoga studio with fun music and energetic sequencing. After the first class I was hooked, and thus began my love affair with yoga. Of course, yoga is not for everyone, but sometimes it takes a little time to find a yoga class or teacher that is right for you. If you’ve always liked the idea of incorporating yoga into your life, but do not know where to start, here is a guide to help you get there.
1. If you are interested in the idea of yoga, try at least three different yoga studios before deciding it is not for you.
I always wanted to love yoga, but I do not ‘message’ that for years because I never found a study that sings to me. It was when I tried a fun, energetic studio called Yoga 213, known for playing loud music such as hip-hop, I fell in love yoga. And then from there I flourished and began to appreciate other styles slower.
2. Know that you do not have to be able to do scorpion pose to be worthy to attend a class
Some people seem to be embarrassed and shy away from yoga if they are not as flexible or strong as some of their peers. This is very strange, considering everyone was a beginner at some point. Do not be afraid of falling out of tree pose. Do not be afraid that you can not do scorpion. Yoga is not about how incredibly flexible, strong and balanced you are, and no one is watching to see if you can touch your toes or not.
3. Do not push your body to do things it doesn’t want to do.
There is a reason that yoga teachers give so many variations on yoga postures, and that’s because there is a unique variation will suit every individual body. Listen to your body and do not push it. Very often, beginners is trying to do something that the person next to them has been practicing for years. This is a recipe for injury, or to make someone think that yoga “can do nothing.” If you give yourself time to slowly build up poses, you can really enjoy the class and feel more comfortable with what you can and can not do.

4. It’s OK if you like one teacher more than another.
Like people, yoga teachers come in all different forms and not all teachers will please you. Try a different master classes’ and find the teacher that is right for you.
5. If you are a man, please know that yoga is not just for women!
Many men are intimidated by yoga, as I think it is for women, but this is certainly not the case. Ironically, yoga was designed and intended for men. There are a lot of force involved in yoga, and together with deep stretching, yoga can be as much exercise as the release of the men.
6. know that yoga can be an intense workout … but it does not have to be.
As a person who always liked to sweat during exercise, Prospero flow over high energy vinyasa. It took me a while to figure that yoga was just a series of slow stretches, and now that I have experienced many types of yoga, I like the balance of the powerful and gentle classes. If you like to feel sweaty at the end of a workout, chances are you really going to enjoy some of the styles of yoga faster pace. Who knows, you may even find an appreciation for yoga too soft.
7. Do not be intimidated by the beautiful, vegan-eating, biking yogi in the study in your neighborhood.
It’s okay to be a yogi and eat meat. It’s okay to be a yogi wine and drink. It’s okay to be a yogi without being a size six. Your yoga teacher is human too, and you do not have to change every aspect of your life to enjoy the fruits of the regular practice of yoga. Chances are that many of their teachers enjoy coffee, wine and meat! Not being the perfect yogi can also be applied to the alignment and safety poses– and fun should always come before the skill and impress your peers.
8. Do not be surprised if over time, you feel more mentally and emotionally balanced only regular practice.
You can enjoy the way your body feels and has gone from the regular practice of yoga, but the benefits go beyond that.
9. Come to class for you, not to prove anything to the other students in your class!
Do not compare yourself to those around you. This goes back to not push your body to do things that is not ready. Listen to your body! There is no use comparing yourself to the person next to you. In the classroom and on the mat, just look out for yourself.
10. Do not take it too seriously!
Some teachers and students take their practice very seriously, but that does not mean you have to. You can still be devoted to yoga and actually have a lot of fun, so remember to smile and enjoy your practice!
