If you’re like many Wilmington residents, then you’ve already started to work toward the resolutions you set at the end of last year. We know that yoga can be intimidating if you’ve never been in a studio, so in today’s post, we’ll give you four great tips to help you make the most of your first few classes.
Wilmington Yoga Center provides a variety of classes for people of every skill level. Whether it’s your first time in our studio or you’re interested in one of our yoga teacher training programs, we’ll help you find the perfect fit.
If You’re Taking Up Yoga Classes This Year…
Start Wherever You’re At
Yoga is similar to weightlifting, biking, and other forms of exercise in the sense that you can’t expect yourself to be performing the most difficult poses after your first few classes. The Wilmington Yoga Center caters to every fitness level and ability, and if you’re struggling to perform a certain pose, we’ll give you tips and guidance to help you master the fundamentals. No matter where you’re starting, just remember that there’s no substitute for dedication and practice!
Try Different Practices
One of the best ways to determine if yoga is for you is to try a variety of practices. Our Wilmington yoga studio offers hot yoga, yoga classes for beginners, core power yoga classes, and so much more. You might find that certain styles are more beneficial for your body and needs than others, and you might even fall in love with several! Be sure to look through our full list of class offerings to find a session that interests you.
Practice on an Empty Stomach
Yoga requires a great deal of bending and stretching, and a full stomach is the last thing you need while you’re attempting to perform a new pose. Whether you’re coming to the yoga studio in the morning or late in the evening, you should always try to give your body at least a few hours to digest your last meal. If you absolutely have to eat before you come to your class, eat a light snack such as a handful of almonds or a few pieces of fruit to get you through the session.
Track Your Progress
Keeping a journal is one of the best ways to track your progress as the months go by. You probably won’t be able to remember which poses you’ve done after a few months have gone by, but jotting down your strengths, weaknesses, and goals after every class is a great way to take an objective look at how far you’ve come.
