3 Common Mistakes by Yoga Newcomers
Feeling of trepidation and uncertainty of the unknown is typically completely unfounded and we get on with things very quickly and easily. Sometimes it is not and a simple little thing
can cause us to have an entirely negative impression and perhaps even
never want to try that activity or passtime again. Yoga has so many health benefits, on both a
physical and spiritual level, it would be a tragedy for anyone to miss out on them because they made a ridiculous avoidable mistake in their first day. With that in mind this report addresses the
3 most frequent mistakes of new Yogi, and also how to make sure they don’t happen to you.
Mistake One: Not knowing what you want from Yoga.
The reality Is that there are a lot of diverse styles and forms of Yoga and each has it’s
different attractions. You might want to set goals, be they physical, psychological or spiritual. If you do then it’s a fantastic idea to discuss them with the teacher of your course before starting. Yoga instructors are usually very approachable and happy to discuss their passion. They will be able to speak to you about your goals for the class and let you know if you are being realistic, aiming too
high or too low. Be sure you goal includes a timeframe so it becomes something that’s measurable.
Mistake Two: Jumping in Feet First.
Having decided that they will give this Yoga thing a try a lot of people take a running
jump and jump into a 12 month period by stage class. These courses are usually an upfront payment arrangement and progress from one level to the next as the weeks progress. They’re a fantastic way of learning Yoga and getting very good at it, but it is quite possibly you will select a class that is not great for you…
also known as a drop in class. If you do these classes for a couple of weeks you will find a high turnover of pupils as new people join and older people move on. These classes are
intended to give you a very broad sense of the different types of Yoga. The amount of the students in the course usually varies greatly so that you can expect the teacher to keep the classes
quite tame. The other key benefit of doing
so is that the courses are pay as you go so there is no big financial outlay
for you as you decide the type and style of yoga which best suits you. You’re also not obliged to attend every class. Together with the longer courses you are able to fall behind quickly if you miss a week or two in a row. With the pay as you go classes you will realize that while every class is different the level stays quite low to cater to the
newer people joining in.
Mistake Three: Choosing the incorrect teacher.
Traditionally A Yogi had to be an apprentice to a skilled Guru for several years before he could
Teach even the simplest of Yoga technique.
Now a 3-day course over a long weekend is considered enough by a few
people. There is a big difference in what you will achieve based on the skills and abilities of the person teaching you.
A qualified teacher won’t be always terrible. Be Fantastic and an unqualified teacher is not necessary – but the odds are certainly throw in this way, so it’s a fantastic idea to check your
Instructors qualifications and background before beginning studying with them.
