YOGA IS A LIFE PRACTICE
Here are some guidelines to remember with the intention and focus of everybody's health, safety, and enjoyment...
Yoga is mainly about being in the moment, letting go, and going with what your body can do or cannot do, discomfort is okay NOT pain, NEVER FORCE A POSE. ( of course throughout your practice, it is quite possible you will realize that you are capable of more than you think)
We are JUST YOUR *TOUR GUIDE* you know your body better than anybody else, so do what you need, take care of yourself.
THIS YOUR PRACTICE. Don't be too concerned about doing the poses *properly* OR what everyone else is doing in class, keeping in mind that it is okay to look around for a sense of camaraderie. this is one reason which makes the group practice so intensely beautiful.
The asanas which are poses, are an extremely small part of yoga. The main purpose of their existence is just to give us the optimum space to be in the moment. Since the human brain cannot do two things at once, by doing the asanas in combination with our breathing, we virtually have no choice but to be in the present moment.
