Yoga is for Everyone
Yoga is for everyone—regardless of age, sex, religion or physical fitness. At the same time, it is not a sport and fitness in the usual sense. There is no need to set goals and there is no competition: it is a personal practice, even if it is done in a group.
Crazy rhythm of life, multitasking, abundance of information – all of this contributes to self-destruction, stress, tension, blocks, and clamps in the body. We don’t move much, we don’t sleep well, we eat on the go, we can’t relax. It is a tool for self-repair at all levels, for self-regulation and self-discipline.
Features of Yoga
- Regularity. It is best to do twice a week. This mode is suitable for everyone, regardless of restrictions. The interval between training should be the same so that the body can recover. For example, Monday/ Friday, Tuesday /Thursday or Tuesday /Saturday.
- Process. After the orientation session, there should be a course for beginners. It should consist of basic exercises, breathing, extensions, theory, and practice and technique that will help to avoid injuries during independent practices. This course usually lasts 4-6 sessions for two weeks. During this time, motivation has time to form and the fears with uncertainty of the beginner vanish.
- Discipline. It is not a workout, but a practice. A beginners course helps to remove barriers, but only repetition will lead to results.
- Infinity. In these exercises, there is no beginning and end, only courses are limited in time – so you can join any group at any time (but you need to warn the instructor that you are new). At seminars and thematic classes (on breathing, cleansing, stretching, techniques of relaxation and meditation), you can start them with the first lesson. However, for the intensive classes (practices with increased load), you can start them only after a year of regular classes.
