Important Things To Know Before Giving Up On Yoga

It can take you some time before you start enjoying Avalon yoga. Sometimes you can feel uninspired or bored because you don’t know a lot of people in the yoga centre and you aren’t doing most of the poses correctly. This should not be a reason to despair. Before giving up on yoga, here are some things you need to know.

You don’t have to force yourself on things you can’t do

There is a reason why there are so many variations of yoga poses. This is because people are unique and no single pose will suit everybody. As you do yoga, you should listen to your body and avoid pushing it. You can see beginners in yoga classes doing things that you have been practicing for years. This shouldn’t turn you from yoga because you will find some poses that work for you. Ask the experienced teachers at the Modern Movement Yoga Centre & they will help.

It is okay to like one coach more than another

Different yoga teachers have different personalities, so it is okay to love one teacher more than the other, if you find a teacher that you don’t like, perhaps it is time to look for another teacher instead of giving up.

Yoga is not just for women

A lot of men are put off by yoga because they believe that yoga is for women. Ironically, yoga was intended for men. The deep stretching and the strength involved in yoga makes yoga suitable for both men and women.

Don’t come to class to prove anything to people

You shouldn’t compare yourself to anyone in Avalon yoga. You don’t have to push your body to do things that you are not comfortable with to please people. Try to listen to your body and do what is best for you. During a yoga class, focus on yourself and not anyone else.
