YOGA TIPS

Welcome to personal yogainstructor information source on yoga candles welcome you to Personal Yoga Instructor for all your Yoga needs and yoga information!


SET YOUR INTENTION

Why are you practicing yoga? To alleviate back pain, relieve stress, increase strength and flexibility, cross training, spiritual ... etc.

PREPARING YOUR SPACE FOR YOGA

If planning on a private yoga session at your home . . . choose a clean, uncluttered space for your yoga practice. Inform others not to disturb you during this time and turn off phones, answering machines and minimize other outside noise. If the temperate is comfortable, you can practice outdoors on a patio or backyard if you prefer. If you would like quiet music during your practice, have a stereo available.

PRACTICING AT THE STUDIO

Arrive early and enter the studio quietly as many yogis like to get to class early for meditation and gentle stretching. If you happen to be late just settle into the back of the class quietly. And remember, in order to honor the eastern tradition (and keep the floors clean) there are no shoes allowed in the asana room. Also, do not bring in cell phones or other distracting items such as large bags, etc.



INJURIES

If you have any new or old injuries please inform me before class. I'll do my best to assist those with injuries on safe modifications for the postures.

WHAT YOU NEED

Have a yoga mat, water bottle and towel.

WHAT TO EAT

Try not to eat at least 2-hours before practicing yoga.

WHAT TO WEAR

Proper yoga attire is non-restrictive comfortable clothes such as sweat/yoga pants, shorts, t-shirts and other gym clothes, and bare feet. Please refrain from wearing fragrances to class.
