Yoga Tips – Be Prepared for the First Time

If you’ve never taken a yoga class before, you’ll be bombarded with so many questions like -What should I wear? What should I expect from my first yoga class? So before you roll out your mat and pop into a yoga session, spend few minutes to read this guide to get an idea on how to prepare for your first Yoga class session in Naples FL.

Arrive Early: Arrive at least 10 minutes before your first yoga class to get a spot where you feel most comfortable. This will help you set your yoga mat in a comfortable place in the room without disrupting everyone else. Also, you won’t miss the specific instructions that teachers give at the beginning of the class for first timers.

Don’t eat before a class: Leave a few hours between the time you eat and the time you practice. You need to be able to connect with your breath, and that’s hard to do with a full stomach. You’ll be twisting your chest and moving your body in all different shapes that will be hindered by a full stomach. So it is must to intake your meals before an hour of practice.

Wear the right clothes: “Breathable and comfortable clothing that is not too baggy is best”, says Barbara King of BKS Yoga Studio in Naples, FL. “You don’t need to wear long pants or spandex, just wear something you feel relaxed and confident in. Ladies can wear quick-dry Capri and tight tops whereas gents may put on shorts and baggy t-shirts.”

Take your shoes off: Yoga is practiced barefoot; shoes and socks are generally not permitted. Not wearing shoes in the yoga room is not only hygienic but it is also a sign of giving respect to a holy place. Being barefoot allows more grip on the mat in various poses.
