Live near Cedar Hill, Duncanville, or any of the surrounding areas and curious about the practice of yoga? Here’s some small bits of information for you to take a look at:
WHAT IS YOGA?
New to yoga? Yoga is a powerful method of keeping your body and mind healthy. Believed to have originated over 5,000 years ago (though there is some debate about that), it utilizes mental focus and deep breathing while performing a series of physical movements. Though many come to yoga for the great physical “workout” (burn up to 380 calories), it’s the incredible mental benefit of the practice that keeps many coming back.
New students should arrive at least 15 minutes before class to fill out a New Student Waiver and discuss any health or injury concerns with the instructor.
Wear lightweight, layered, comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement. You will build a sweat! Bring water and a towel. We do provide yoga mats for your use, but it is recommended to have your own mat. Yoga is practiced in bare feet.
As a new student to Yoga, we recommended that you begin with The Basics or $5 Beginners. Either class is geared to the newer student though all levels can find something in them. Students will learn basic sun salutations and yogic breathing, standing poses and balancing postures, beginning twists and back bending, beginning inversion and forward bending.
It is recommended in the beginning of your practice to attend two or three classes a week. As you build strength and flexibility, you can build up to practicing four or more days a week. You are welcome to stay in The Basics or Beginners class as long as you like, when you feel you are ready for more you are welcome to try any and all of our other offerings.
Yoga Club offers classes for all ages and levels.
We look forward to meeting you!
