Do I need to bend like a pretzel?
Absolutely Not! We're not auditioning for Cirque du Soleil! Seriously, with the proper modifications, most practitioners ease into poses at their own pace.
Why Yoga if I already stretch?
Stretching is good...but it usually doesn't include the body/mind/spirit spectrum you find in a yoga class that is well designed and taught.
Isn't Yoga primarily for women?
You tend to see more women in class. But men equally benefit from Yoga -- just ask the football and baseball coaches who've embraced it.
I've tried Yoga but wasn't too thrilled.
There are different types of yoga and styles of teaching. As with anything, you want to feel good. You may want to give it another try to find the right fit. Let's talk.
How's your music? I'm not interested in chanting?
No worries. I don't teach to music. The only 'music' you'll hear is my voice -- which I've been told is encouraging, supportive, and kind. I provide step-by-step instructions and modifications to suit your comfort level.
Will a yoga practice satisfy my exercise requirements?
Generally, cross-training is recommended for peak fitness, to avoid overusing the same muscles and reduce injury risk. Always best to check with your physician to assess what's right for you.
Yoga clothing and props are expensive?
Actually, many of my clients wear whatever is loose, comfortable and easy to move around in. As for props, I'd start out with the basics: good Yoga mat, 2 blocks, and a strap.
What's the best time of day to practice yoga?
Honestly, whatever time fits best in your schedule. The key factor is to block that time on your calendar and treat it as a serious commitment to your fitness/ wellness goals.
