Yoga Fitness Dublin answer your question: So what do you need to know if you’re starting yoga from scratch?
Choosing a Yoga Class:
Firstly, there are many different styles of yoga and some are more suited to beginners than others. Two styles that are usually suitable for beginners are Hatha and Vinyasa.
Typically Hatha yoga is slow and gentle and aims to teach people the basics of yoga, so it’s a good option for someone with no previous experience who doesn’t want to start out with too vigorous a class. At Yoga Fitness Dublin we offer Hatha yoga as Gentle Yoga or Yoga for Stretch and Relax.
Vinyasa yoga classes are slightly more demanding than Hatha yoga classes and may be suited to the more physically fit beginner who wants to get a good workout while practicing yoga. Vinyasa focuses on matching movements and postures to your breathing.
At Yoga Fitness Dublin we call these classes: Yoga all Levels
People who does Sports or run can hugely benefit from the Yoga practice at Yoga Fitness Dublin as offers the perfect activity as cross training and preventing from injuries.
We also offer Yoga for Special Needs, as we believe that everybody has the right to practice yoga!
What You’ll Need
You will need a yoga mat (of course!). In terms of what you should wear, it’s advisable to dress in comfortable clothing that allows a wide range of movement. There is special yoga clothing available, but a loose-fitting t-shirt and a pair of shorts or gym trousers would probably do just fine.
If you enjoy the first few classes, it’s a good idea to invest in your own mat as it allows you to practice yoga at home.
What to Expect
Usually people lay out their mats side by side in rows, with all mats facing towards the top of the room where the teacher will be.
Mats shouldn’t line up perfectly as you sometimes need to stretch out your arms when practicing yoga and you don’t want to hit your neighbour whenever you do this. Neither socks nor shoes should be worn when practicing yoga.
Yoga is a wonderful form of exercise as it can help you tone up as well as relieving stress and improving your general well-being.
At Yoga Fitness Dublin we try to make your experience with Yoga pleasant and unforgettable.
