Do i need to be flexible or strong to do yoga?

Det er en generel misforståelse, at man skal være smidig og/eller stærk for at kunne dyrke yoga. Vi arbejder med den fysiske krop, vejrtrækning og sindet på alle vores yogahold, for netop at forbedre vores styrke og smidighed både fysisk og psykisk.

What are the benefits of yoga?

With regular practice, you will notice your body getting stronger and more flexible; you will feel more grounded and have better posture. On a mental level you will notice improved focus, the ability to stay calm and maintain relaxed breathing.

What class should i try?

It is a good idea to try different classes to get an idea of the style of yoga and teachers you like and is right for you. Also we recommend a mix of classes as they all compliment different aspects of yoga. Vinyasa, Hatha and Strength classes tend to be the more physically demanding classes, while Yin, Meditation and the Restorative Yoga classes are less physically challenging and with more focus on the mindset.

What should i bring to class?

Bring water to stay hydrated, a yoga mat if you have one and a towel. We have mats available for rent if you do not have one. Other than that, just bring an open mind.

What should I wear in class?

Athletic clothing where the instructor can have a good idea of your body alignment, and at the same time clothes that are comfortable, fast drying and do not restrict your movement.

What about eating or drinking before class?

It is a good idea to come to class hydrated and drink plenty of water after yoga class. In most yoga traditions drinking water during class is not recommended. Try not to eat a full meal at least three hours before class.

What if i have pain or a previous injury?

It is always appropriate to talk to the instructor about any existing physical conditions and concerns you have about them. Yoga benefits many people with chronic pain by helping the body regain it’s balance between strength and flexibility, movement and awareness. If you are under a doctor’s care for an acute situation, please be sure to discuss taking yoga classes with him or her.

Can pregnant women do yoga?

Yoga can be very beneficial during pregnancy, but make sure to let your instructor know you are pregnant. Make sure to avoid twisting, inversions, pranayama, any abdominal strengthening pose and lying on your belly. Remember, balancing poses may get tougher as you progress in your pregnancy so use the wall or blocks to keep yourself balanced and stay in the pose longer. Make sure to drink plenty of water and take bathroom breaks whenever needed.
