If you have never done yoga before we have beginners’ classes throughout the week. It is better to start with those and you can go to the all levels classes after few weeks of practice.
If you have already been introduced to yoga before you can go to any all levels class.
Ideally 2 or 3 times a week (that is how we have designed our packages). The most important is to be regular in your practice. Understand what space you can create for your practice, realistically and stick to it with discipline. Remember you have to enjoy also so if you are not a morning person for example, come for the evening classes...
All teachers insist on the importance of the breath and include pranayama in their classes. We have a class which is focusing on pranayama and meditation on Saturday morning with Sneha.
Everybody can do yoga. With consistent practice you will become more flexible. It is not an issue at all. Remember not to compete with the others on the mat, or even with yourself. Yoga is not a competition. Enjoy and relax! You will see the progress.
Yoga is definitely going to help you as it will tones your muscles, help you to reduce fat, lengthen the body and changed its shape, detoxify your digestive system and rebalance your hormones. Those results will be seen after few weeks of regular practice. If your main goal is to lose weight, you should add a cardio workout in your weekly program and check your diet to make sure you have a holistic healthy lifestyle.
