How to select a Yoga Class?

  1. A legitimate interest in Yoga will lead you to do some in-depth research. Be completely aware of the facts before you step into the course.
  2. The Yoga school or Yoga ashram providing the course should be approved by Yoga Alliance.
  3. What is it that you are looking forward to changing yourself? If you are more concerned about your emotional behavior and in search of a remedy for stress, depression, anxiety, frustration, and anger, then focus more on your mental exercises more than the physical ones. In this particular case, the Meditation Program is definitely waiting for you to show up soon.
  4. Go through the curriculum of the Yoga school or ashram before you finalize your decision. Read and analyze the syllabus of the course, whether it's Yoga Teacher Training, Yoga Retreat, Meditation course, or even your daily class. It is very important to find the healing sessions you “need”, before doing the things you “want”.
  5. The role of Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is extremely important in order to decide which class you should be going for. These are the most-classical forms of Yoga and are a mandatory fit in all the Yoga courses - from basic to advanced. These authentic yoga forms are the spine of the class as long as you keep yourself hydrated.
  6. If your aim is to lose weight, then devote your attention towards practicing various Yoga asanas like Navasana, and Sampattasana. These are all part of Ashtanga Yoga, which is dominated towards the physical aspect of training.
  7. Ask the inquiry of the total number of students in the class via email. It is a plus if the class is small because it will be more personal and helpful for you. In a big group of class, your amateur understanding might be overlooked.
  8. Find out the purpose behind learning Yoga- is it for you, or to help and heal people around the world, or just an exploration. This will help you to shortlist the type of Yoga which is best suitable for you.                              For example, if you are looking for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience, then you must go for an Ayurveda treatment, a Yoga retreat in Nepal, or to any other preferred location. If you are passionate about Yoga and practice it regularly to inspire yourself and others, then you must follow your heart to teach Yoga with the stamp of Yoga teacher training course.
  9. The indoor or outdoor setting wouldn't be a problem if you are wise enough to pick a studio which has good lighting and ventilation which can be tested by attending a trial class.
  10. Keep yourself updated about the experience in yoga practice, nature of the class, and achievements of your Yoga gurus.
