New to Yoga? I’m Here to Help!

Yoga is universal, and anyone can do it: no matter how young or old you feel, no matter how unfit or unflexible you consider yourself. Whether you are a couch-potato or professional athlete, yoga will help you in so many ways. Your size and fitness doesn’t matter because Yoga adapts to you.

 

The idea is to explore your personal limits, not to strive for pretzel-like perfection or drown in esoteric teachings. Zenbu Massage & Yoga offers a range of yoga classes for beginners, intermediate, baby yoga and armchair yoga so you will be able to start a new practise that’s easy to study, requires no gear, and soothes your soul.

Frequently Asked Questions About Yoga

What should I wear?

Your clothing should be loose, comfortable, and easy to move around in. You don’t need to buy anything special, a t-shirt and stretchy trousers will work just fine.

I’ve never done yoga before, Where do i Start?

Start with the beginners class – it moves at a slower pace and offers more description of each pose. You can decide how far you want to take each posture and you will notice your flexibility building class by class. It’s a common misconception that you need to be flexible to do yoga- it’s not! The happy coincidence is that you will become more flexible with the more yoga you do!

Why should I do yoga?

A regular yoga practice will promote overall health and wellbeing. Your body will feel more stretched and aligned, your mind will feel more spacious and blissful. You will become more aware of your body and surroundings and this knowledge will help you in everyday situations.

What should I bring?

Bring yourself and a willingness to learn. You are advised to bring you own mat, blanket for relaxation and bottle of water.

Is it OK to eat before class?

Like with any moderate physical activity, it’s best to fuel up in advance. Try to eat 3 or 4 hours before class, but certainly have something small  to eat prior to starting if you’re hungry like a banana.

Is it OK to take yoga if I have a medical condition?

This naturally depends on what the condition is. Yoga can be very gentle and restorative so a beginners class can suit someone with arthritis, general aches and pains or if you have limited mobility. Of course consult with your doctor to get the go ahead and always  let your teacher know about your condition before class so she can provide appropriate modifications for you.

Can I practice while I’m pregnant?

Absolutely. If you had a regular yoga practice before becoming pregnant, you may be able to continue to attend the same class. (Modifications will be made so you need to tell the teacher) If not, try Pregnancy Yoga. Always let your teacher know that you’re pregnant, and always check with your doctor before making any changes to your fitness routine.
