The Beginners Guide To Stroke Recovery Therapy Joining A Yoga Class

By Helen Williams

Yoga is a great way to get in shape and increase flexibility, but for people who have never been to a single class and have taken an interest in it. Taking a class is the best stroke recovery therapy. Not only is there a chance to meet new people and make friends but feel good about yourself as well. Yoga isn t what the media has made it out to be causing a highly inaccurate misconception in people s minds that it s for thin housewifes finding a way to spend their time before the afternoon school run.

Most, if not all yoga instructors will tell everyone in class to leave their egos at the front entrance, because being self conscious or worrying about what other people are doing will detract from the purpose of going. Bring comfortable clothing, fabric that can stretch is best because it means that your still relatively comfortable even when your in an awkward position.

Being comfortable also extends to the equipment required to engage in a yoga class. Classes are done barefoot, no socks, but an exception can be made depending on the weather. A yoga mat can also be used but a helpful and useful tip would be to refrain from stepping on anybody else s yoga mat as some of the members in your class might view their mat as an extension of themselves or an invasion of their personal space.

Going to class on a full stomach is considered a fopa, sure nobody will know, that s the logic behind it. But trust us when we say, they will know, not only might it cause discomfort but nobody wants to sit behind the person passing gas. On the same token however, it s equally bad to go to a yoga class on a completely empty stomach. The middle ground and the most ideal conditions for a stomach during a yoga class is to have a fruit 20 to 30 minutes before class so that you don t feel bloated nor light headed during the class.

Yoga incorporates a lot of different types and forms of breathing into the class. At first. There might be the need to feel like breathing in when you re supposed to be breathing out and vice versa but the important thing is that you don t stop breathing.

Make it clear from the beginning how comfortable you are with touch as the instructure may touch you to adjust you from time to time. Some poses offer more personal space than others so if you feel uncomfortable, speak up but be polite. A helpful tip to keep in mind is not to feel discouraged when paid special attention, it s not because you re doing something wrong but rather, you re being helped to make something easier.

Get to class 10 to 15 minutes early. Your instructor may want to know a few things such as your level of skill in yoga or check for any injuries they need to be aware of before the class starts. But the biggest advantage arriving early offers is being able to choose the right place for you.

Yoga has some great benefits and who wouldn t want to feel more flexible but some research is necessary before laying down a mat and chanting a mantra. Be Comfortable and ask for help if anything seems unfamiliar or difficult.
