What does “adjustments” mean?
Teachers may offer “hands on” adjustments to help you with pose alignment. If you are uncomfortable with this, please let your teacher know before class.
What if I’m not very flexible?
Yoga is a non-competitive practice that is wonderful for beginners and advanced yogis alike. Everyone feels self-conscious at first, but as you become more familiar with the poses, you will gain confidence and flexibility. Be sure to listen to your body throughout the practice and take cues from your teacher on how to modify poses in a way that’s right for you.
What if I have injuries or limitations?
Please let your teacher know before class – always keep your teacher updated to any injuries or illnesses you may be experiencing. Always get your physician’s approval before engaging in physical activity such as yoga.
