What to Expect As Your Practice Begins, and Develops
FIRST, BE KIND TO, AND ACCEPT YOURSELF
Accept where you are in your yoga journey. Yoga is not about competition, or comparison, but about self-development over time.
TAKE TIME TO MASTER THE BASICS
Give yourself time to learn proper, healthy alignment, become familiar with yogic breath, and cultivate awareness as you practice. Deepening and growing your practice will come naturally, and safely, if you trust the process.
BE WILLING TO COMMIT
Yoga is a lifestyle and a discipline. Its benefits are proven, and its rewards are measurable. Your practice, and its resulting gifts, will develop in direct proportion to the time and effort you give yourself to pursue them.
