Yoga is NOT a religion at all. It is a science of the breath and movement.
The word yoga, from the Sanskrit word means to yoke or bind and is often interpreted as “union” or a method of discipline. A male who practices yoga is called a yogi, a female practitioner, a yogini. Today most people practicing yoga are engaged in the third limb, asana, which is a program of physical postures designed to purify the body and provide the physical strength and stamina.
First is very important that you do not eat right before class. It is best to refrain from a big meal 2-3 hours before class. Eat a light snack if you must, hydrate your body and have an open mind, expect nothing, let your body and mind connect and be kind to your body. Each Yoga class incorporates movement, postures, breath, and meditation. Exercises will be taught in the form of a specific sequence of exercises. Each class is unique try as many classes as you can until find what fits the most to you.
Comfortable clothes you can move easily in are best for yoga, loose, stretchy pants work best a towel is a good idea. Yoga is practiced barefoot. Bring a yoga mat and light blanket if you have one, otherwise we do have complementary mats and other props for our students.
