Beginners' Guide

To ensure that students benefit fully and enjoy yoga is our priority.  Attending the right class for your level and the right teacher not only helps you to choosing adapt and learn quickly but also help you grow spiritually,  mentally, emotionally and physically!  And at Y+, we want to help you! Below is basic guide of which class you should attend for your level.This is a simple guide, do approach our teachers for a more professional recommendation.

  • DO go to a beginner-level class. Many beginners make the mistake of going to an advanced class their first time out.
  • DO research different yoga options and experiment with them. If you don't like a particular class or teacher, don't give up on yoga.Think about what you want to get out of yoga and then research which styles might fit those goals. If you are looking to loosen up your muscles and sweat a bit, then try Hot Yoga, which is a type of yoga performed in a hot room. Or maybe you want to relax and meditate, in which Prana Yoga may fit your needs.
  • DO realize that yoga is unlike other exercise. Yoga is an ancient tradition combining breathing, relaxation, spirituality and meditation.
  • DO leave your judgments at the door. Just because you can't pull your leg up as far as the person next to you does not mean you are a failure at yoga. Some people are just less flexible or have tighter muscle groups. The person next to you may have been practicing for years or just naturally be more limber. Know your body's limitations. If you can't achieve the perfect pose, you should modify it to work within your flexibility and strength levels.
  • DO practice, practice, practice…… As a beginning yoga student, it's best to go to class as much as possible, ideally three times a week. Your joints and muscles are just getting used to these new movements, and it's best to keep your body warmed up.
