Plan to be at least 10-15 minutes early your first time. You will need time to meet your instructor, grab any equipment you might need and get settled. You should wear comfortable somewhat form fitting clothing. Pants or 3/4 length shorts are encouraged rather than gym shorts to preserve modesty. Remember, you are going to be bending over! Try to avoid clothing that is too loose fitting or that needs to be adjusted frequently. The less you think about what you are wearing the better. Layer your clothing if you get cold easily and bring a pair of socks for the end of class. Shoes and socks are not worn during yoga practice.
If you already have a yoga mat bring it. If not, just bring you. We don’t recommend purchasing a mat before your first class. You can borrow one while you are here for $2. As your practice develops you will likely develop preferences and dislikes regarding your yoga mat and should plan to purchase one after that. Sound Method offers yoga mats for purchase when the time comes. We have all the props that you will need while you are in class though some students prefer to bring their own blocks, yoga strap etc. We use wool blankets as props, if you are sensitive to wool please bring a large beach towel to substitute. Yoga props are invaluable to any yoga practice and can also be purchased at the studio for home practice. Some students also like to have a towel on hand to stay dry during practice.
Hatha Yoga or the yoga of postures is a physical practice of asana (poses), transitions and breath (pranayama). At Sound Method Yoga we practice movement mindfully with regard for the uniqueness of each individual student. Our goal is to teach classes that facilitate the greatest benefit to our students. Though SMY offers several different kinds of classes our first priority is your progress. Yoga is more than just exercise but you will leave feeling like you’ve worked hard. Yoga is not competitive; through yoga we learn to practice compassion first with ourselves so we can then be kind to others. Yoga is where we get better. If you are worried about your lack of flexibility, strength or experience, weight, age , etc…. join us. We can improve at all ages and sizes. Plan to absorb and experience your practice without expectations. At Sound Method you become a true yogi when you honor your strengths and weaknesses; success comes from doing poses in ways that honor your own body and goals, not from pushing yourself to do more and more complicated positions. The best kind of exercise is the kind that you love. As with any physical fitness program, yoga can and should be done regularly. For some this means once a week. For most it means at least two or three times a week. Because frequent practice is so important Sound Method offers 3 membership options to make practicing convenient and affordable. All membership include in person, live stream and on demand classes Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns, we love new students and are happy to chat: Click to Call 402-991-7673
