Finding your preferred yoga style and preferences can take time and will possibly even evolve over time as you gain experience and practice frequently. If you’re just starting out, it’s encouraged to take a variation of beginners or “all levels” classes to gauge your comfort level and what you enjoy from each class.
Each teacher has their own unique style, voice, and flow of classes, so it’s helpful to try different teachers as well as types of classes to understand what feels most aligned with your body, energy, and mind. It’s also beneficial to read the descriptions provided for each class to understand every teacher’s approach, background, and focus for class.
We also find it helpful to interact before and after class with teachers to recognize what may feel good and provide feedback or ask any questions you may have. Additionally, when finding what works for you and your body, communication with instructors is important for your safety and comfortability.
If you have any injuries or limitations, please let the instructor know, so modifications and/or props can be provided to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable practice. Also, identifying your needs and expectations for class can be helpful to navigate each style and understand which type of yoga will be most beneficial for you.
See descriptions for each style and class to get a better idea of what may work best for you.
