3 Things You Can Do In A Yoga Class (And you thought you shouldn’t)
As a student, you can practice drawing outside the lines to see what you come up with. You might end-up creating something more interesting than usual by experimenting this way.
1. It is Ok Not To Follow the Instructor Sometimes
The difficult decisions of skipping a certain postures or parts of a sequence comes with the territory. Those with physical issues or those who are still building their strength and muscles will benefit from this decision, as it can make the class more balanced and healthy.
Yoga can be tough for beginners, so it's important to find a teacher that'll support you even when you need to take a break. Your body is yours and comes with its own set of inner signals which no fitness coach can feel. I've had countless students come to me in pain.
When I asked them why they were moving in a way that caused pain, they said that their tutor told them to do it. I have had sacroiliac joint pain for a long time, but now that it's gone I feel like I can do whatever my body wants without any fear.
Now, I don’t mean that you should get up and do handstands during savasana, because your inner hint tells you (yes, someone did this in one of my classes). It might not be a good idea to do that. It’s really important to show your child that you're there for them, but it can be hard to do in a busy environment. Parents need wisdom on how to transcribe their love into more tangible expressions. Vinyasa is an easy way of practicing something that creates harmony in the home and inspires a brahmacharya state of mind for both parents and children
2. Ask Questions
Don’t be confused anymore! Raising your arm and asking a question is the best way to get help! The saying goes that if you have a problem others in the room may also be thinking about it. This is true.
As educators, it's our job to make sure every student is placed in the right educational environment. Not being clear enough can sometimes happen and we sincerely hope you feel like you have all the information necessary.
We hope that through understanding the reasons for being able to perform certain asanas or movements, you will feel more motivated in your yoga. If you are not sure about anything, please feel free to ask us questions.
Feel free to ask lots of questions, but don’t be that one person who asks a million answers. Make an effort to show that you are actually interested in learning and find out more!
Sometimes talking to you after class or arranging private lessons can be the most beneficial for everyone. The most important thing to remember about yoga is that it's a conversation, even with just one person
3. Express Your Emotions
You should feel like sneezing, don't stop. Offline yoga is about laughing and having fun so I always advise people to do the same. Yoga is for everyone, not just one type of person.
I've seen that making bad puns or joking about how lame the lyrics to an 80s song are can recharge students and pull them out of their negative thoughts. For instance, if you slip and lose your balance on a tree, it's better to laugh it off instead of punishing yourself mentally for the slip.
What if humor helps us in dark times? If we can laugh about these things with each other, the community-at-large will become more united. You'll feel like a family. I'm sure your butt will appreciate it too!
We are multifaceted beings and yoga is multifacetable too. You can experience so many sides to this practice and sometimes you'll find that's what you need. Let new experiences in, surrender what no longer serves you, and enjoy the ride!
I know from experience that if you suppress your tears, they will find a way to flow out at another time and will likely be accompanied by another emotion. For example, it may be anger.
I have heard of holding back tears when they're compared to holding a beach ball underwater. At some point, they will explode, and they are usually more powerful than when they are first felt
I teach at a yoga studio, and there are tissue boxes on the floor. It doesn't seem that they're meant for wiping your sweat (as most people think), but rather for sneezing. Austin has a reputation of being the Allergy Capital of the World, and these tissues are probably there to help with allergies as well.
In reality, AI writing assistants allow you to focus on the more important aspects of your business. They also capture these deep emotions. They are there just like the coaches are, which allows for the messiness of life to be absorbed and celebrated in a community of curious, ironic and compassionate people. They're ready for a real transformation.
