What to expect:

  • Yoga is a process. Don’t expect perfection in your first class. Avoid comparison and judgment. With time and practice your ease of expression will blossom. Patience, concentration, determination, faith, and self-control are natural results of practice. Doing the twenty-six (26) different postures well during your first class is not necessary. What matters most is that you try to do the postures properly.
  • Focus on yourself and be as still as possible between poses. As you build your ability to focus your mind and still your body, the heat and the struggle will soon disappear. Keep your mind focused on yourself in the mirror and keep your inner voice positive, supportive, and encouraging fashion.
  • It is normal to feel emotions during class (cry, laugh, feel anger) This is a very powerful yoga that works on all levels to heal us. Sometimes tears will flow as you perform a posture. This means your emotional body is releasing energy and you are healing psychologically and emotionally. Don’t judge the experience and don’t stop because you think something is wrong. Your yoga practice is working exactly the way it is supposed to.
  • Certain postures may cause unusual experiences. Old injuries may re-emerge as aches or dull pain. We may be afraid we are re-injuring ourselves and should stop practicing yoga. The opposite is usually true as this is part of the healing process. Continuing our yoga practice and/or practicing more often will actually help us heal faster. Always check with your doctor if you have medical concerns.
  • Bikram Yoga is suitable for all skill levels – including beginners. You will see men and women of all ages, sizes, and shapes. You will see people, practicing Bikram Yoga, who are unfamiliar with it, and also those who are quite skilled.
