It’s Called a Practice
With so many people familiar with downward-facing dog and cobra poses, it may feel as though you’ve missed the boat. Very few people are completely comfortable coming into a practice that seems easy for others. The thing is, no one is born a yogi. Every person who has become stronger and more flexible has done so through practice. The same transformation is possible for you if you so desire. It’s Your Practice Every person who has improved their yoga practice had to start at the beginning. Every. Single. One. There is no “getting there” in yoga. That mindset contradicts the idea that yoga is a personal journey for every individual. When you begin your new yoga practice, be kind to yourself. Know that the best process is one that is taken carefully. One of the beautiful things about yoga is that this activity helps you get to know your body and mind in a better way. To rush your ability to perform poses the way you think you should be to miss out on the benefits that yoga has to offer. Furthermore, rushing any pose, just like any exercise, could ultimately lead to injury.

In this day and age of busy-ness and instant gratification, there is enormous value in learning to slow down. Yoga can help you do this while also improving strength, flexibility, and body-structure. Learn more about our classes and how to get the most out of them at 703-444-2800
