Choosing a Yoga Class

 

 

Here are a few tips to get you started:

Never done yoga before? 

Consider taking a Beginners Yoga class to receive an introduction into the practice and learn about the foundations of yoga. You could also try a level 1 class for a bit more of a challenge.

Practiced yoga occasionally? 

A Level 1-2 class is likely to be a good option for you. 

Practice yoga regularly? 

Feel free to try any of the levels and styles to find what’s best for you.

With such a myriad of yoga ‘styles’ available we appreciate it can seem confusing and perhaps even a little stressful to choose one.  Coupled with this, all yoga teachers are unique human beings, and thus bring their own uniqueness to the classes they teach.
With this in mind, we are here to help!  Our team are happy to answer any questions you have and talk you though the various teachers and styles available for you to try.
Yoga can be like finding the right pair of shoes – you may need to try on a few styles before finding the perfect fit! 

  • When choosing a class, bear in mind that such styles as Power Flow or Vinyasa Flow are more challenging than others.
  • If you have had a long break from your yoga practice, you may want to start from a Beginners or Open Level class, and move on to other classes as you get back into your regular practice.
  • ‘Levels’ are offered as a guideline to help you choose a suitable class.  We encourage you to try a few different teachers, levels and styles to find what feels best for you.
  • It’s important to remember that yoga is not competitive! In yoga classes we are given the opportunity to continue to learn and grow, with awareness, acceptance and compassion shown towards ourselves and others.  We encourage this approach here at Samsara in both students and teachers alike.
