How to find a yoga teacher / studio
You been thinking about trying out yoga for a while, or you just want to be more calm and Zen from your hectic life. Thinking and hearing how some people love yoga and its make them feel great, a good way to losing weight, and some people having a life changing experience. What ever your motives are this article will give you some ground rule, and help make your introduction into yoga a more enjoyable experience.
There are different types of yogas: Ashtanga yoga (yoga flow) more challenging than Hatha which is slower, kundalini is more back/spine work and you get to chant, and there also the controversial hot yoga, developed from Ashtanga / Hatha but you do it in a heated room and sweating like no tomorrow, and some time studio or gym have there own name of the type of yoga they trying branding its.
Yep, yoga have become a big biz and it out sold coke coke la (what is yoga industry statistics)????
Depending on your physical ability there are 5 level in yoga, everyone can do its. Make sure you have proper warm up at the beginning or conditioning your body for the pose. Keep in mind the more flexible you are the greater risk of you getting injured. Yoga is about strengthen your muscles, master and controlling your muscles.
First, we need to figure out what you objectives are? Why do you want to start practicing yoga? Do you want to lose weight, strengthens your body muscles or you just want to try something new?
Before you spend any money buying mat paying for yoga class and buying the clothes, try some yoga class first to see if it is some thing that you like? Look for free class at the gym, studios usually give out free 1st trial class or you can get a one week unlimited class, try out at least 3 to 5 classes before you decide if you like it or not.
Your 1st class: there assortment of different exercises and breathing technique, lot of information, you may find it’s over wheeling.
2nd class you may be able to follow half the class and lost the other half. 3rd to 5th classes you going to be able to do the actually yoga and able to follow and know where the class is going, after that you can judge to see if you like yoga or not and decide to pay for studio or gym membership.
Try to avoid try out yoga with a DVD or TV, these are great if you know what you are doing, but it better to have an experiences yoga instructors to keep an eyes on you to prevent you from getting injury or doing pose that your body is not conditioned for. Yoga has many great benefits, but if your body not conditioned for pose that gradually build up poses or warm up properly it also can be dangerous.
Spending your hard earn money.
You tried yoga and like what its does, now you want to look for yoga class in studio or gym.
What you want to look for in a class. Class that are not too pack, usually average 10 people or less. More than that, the yoga instructor cannot keep an eye on everybody. This is even more important especially if it a beginner class, to prevent injures. Yoga has lot of structure and each pose are a graduals build up to open up your muscles and internal organs, you don’t want to start doing standing upside down or a full back bend in the beginning of a class. Just like lifting weight, you not likely going to start with a 300 lbs. weight bend press when you have no muscles. Yoga is no different, make sure you have instructor that able to keep an eyes on the class and individuals, given lot explanation and cute.
One of the misconceptions people have about yoga is that it is mere stretching. However there is no stretching or pulling on any muscles. Instead it involves using muscles to control body movement and hold poses in place, which strengthens the body and get your heart rate going by mastering your body involves control over every muscle and every movement, even in active relaxation. This is the art of yoga.
What you want to look for in a yoga teacher?
Does he/ she expand the posture properly, if you are new to yoga, these information will help you doing the actual yoga pose and get its full benefit instead of posing in the pose. This also gives you good foundation for you practice and preventing future injure.
Does he/she explain what the pose is for? Example how to control your lower back, what muscles are you working on?
Make sure you tell your instructor if you have any injure or anything that you want them to keep an eyes on you for. Most instructors structure the class for average healthy people (i.e. no injure) they will welcome your concern. Remember there are other people in the class beside you, if you have too may specific need, the instructor can not accommodates them all, it is OK TO REST when you are tire in a child pose and do what you can, you doing this for yourself so listen to your body, you will know its better than anyone else!
Does the teacher walk around the class making sure you doing the pose properly, and give correction and keep an eye on the class?
Breathing is very important in yoga, it helps opening up your muscles, calm you body and relaxing your nervous systems, breathing can also help speed up your heart rate or slowing its down, there can be cardiovascular in all your pose. Your instructor should have a good rhythm, depending if he/she wants to warm your body up or calming down your mind for relaxation.
Yoga has many benefits both physical and emotional. Just like studying English/poetry, the poses are your basic abc’s. The interpretation and use of each yoga pose to balance your yin/yang, front/back and masculine/feminine are all based upon the teacher’s knowledge and experiences.
A good yoga class will give you feeling centre, your muscles had been worked. Yet your mind calm, and your body feel strong. It is not the same feeling as you sitting in a sauna for 30min and when you come out feel relax but trained limp or light headed.
If by the end of the class you feel discomfort. That mean there is something when wrong in class, and you may have over pull or putting too much pressure on your body. Let the teacher know.
If you have lot of special need and injures, you may want to consider private lesson or do yoga therapy once you decide yoga is something you like to do.
Relating to your yoga instructor.
You like yoga, and now you want to find a teacher that you can communicate and assisted you the best of your ability in your practice.
What type of personality you have? Are you an audio person? Need to hear every instruction explain clearly. A visual people need to see every thing demonstrated before or during the pose, or are you a person whom need to feel what you are doing to be able to understand the poses.
Know what your personality trait is and look for instructor who, demonstrate all three of these traits, or someone with the same trait as you’re .
Objective of practicing yoga:
To achieve clarity, centering, calming the body and mind by using poses to open up the body and release all physical (muscles/ tension/ stiffness) and internal tension (internal organ/ blood circulation) and mastering your muscles. Preparing the practitioner for spiritual worship or just enjoying the calming of body and mind…
Remember that flexibility come from strengthen your muscles, not the other way around, you need to be strong and able to control you muscle before you get flexibility in yoga. The more flexible a person is, the more likely they will get injure in yoga.
There you have it. Good luck and go out and bend its like a pretzel!
