YES!! This series of postures has been created for all levels including absolute beginners. Be patient with yourself, don't compete with your neighbour and don't expect to do everything the first few classes; pace yourself, its ok to stop, pull yourself together and with your own determination and will power, get right back into it. You should expect an aerobic cardiovascular workout. Your teacher will encourage and guide you. Your obligation is to yourself to go to your own personal limit and get 100% benefit as you stretch your body and spine.
You should remain hydrated throughout your stay. However you should not exercise on a full stomach, so eat light at least 2 hours before a class.
"Haud yer wheesht" Yes, the yoga room is a quiet space, the teacher will do all the talking! But please ask questions afterwards.
"Dinnae go for a saunter" Stay in the room, no skedaddling, even if you feel that you are struggling. The savasna at the end of the class is expecially important and you should aim to stay in the room with your eyes closed for at least 4 - 5 minutes, allowing your body to rest, recharge and set you up for the day.
"Thirsty? Feeling crabbit?" You can drink small sips of water between postures, but not during a posture, this will distract others who may be concentrating on a posture.
"Drookit? Don't sweat over it!!! Sweating is obligatory, it's your bodies natural way of cooling down, detoxify and energising your body.
"Canny breath, feeling peely-wally? " If you feel dizzy, light headed or breathless - just stop, stand still or kneel down, focus on yourself in the mirror, concentrate on slowing down your breathing in and out through the nose! Then get right back into it!
"Nae fidgeting" Stay on your mat, don't worry about what your hair looks like, the sweat, that your mat or your towel needs adjusting. Look at yourself in the mirror, breathe, smile, focus.
"Pettet-lip?" - Seal your lips and always breath in and out through your nose (apart when you are instructed to breath through your mouth). Breathing thru your nose prevents rapid dehydration through the mouth, filters the air around you and helps you stay calm.
"you are pure barry" - Know you are utterly wonderful and fantastic. Enjoy the natural high after the class and the natural glow to your skin. Most importantly, be kind to yourself and others!
