Pratico yoga há mais de vinte anos em quatro países diferentes. Tive alguns professores fantásticos e alguns não tão bons educadores. Tive que viajar para outras regiões para assistir às aulas que não conseguia ter em meu próprio lugar. Isto sempre levou tempo que eu não tinha, o que me afastou de meus entes queridos e do trabalho.
I really do believe that attending courses is the best way to become capable of yoga. Mainly because a fantastic instructor will help you physically to find the poses (asanas) right and will align and change your body to the pose. This hands on approach from the yoga instructor will help to move you forward smoothly and quickly. It’s the practice of yoga involving courses that moves you even quicker.
And if you’re anything like me, it’s the practice at home I find hard to keep up with no guide. I own about a dozen movies for practicing yoga, however the video machine expired years ago. I also have quite a couple of DVD’s filled with courses which take time to undergo and the continuous need to prevent the DVD player or fast forward to the next exercise takes away from my enjoyment of this exercise. I’ve attempted to exercise with books but find them frustrating as well. I’ve tried yoga cards which may be organised into a program suited to myself.
These seem to be a excellent idea but the examples could get confusing and when I have next gone into a course realize I have spent time studying a pose wrongly. I needed something I could travel with and use easily and quickly. So I started putting together a pattern on my computer which was easy to get through and suitable to take anywhere I had been going.
Classes are crucial to becoming capable at yoga as is a excellent teacher. If you end up at a course where the teacher isn’t giving you what you feel is needed. Stop going there and find another course and instructor that does. A fantastic instructor is hands on, literally, and will happily help you get to the aligned position the asana needs to get the most from the exercise. Don’t pay to join a course until you’ve had a few trial runs with the instructor first. Between lessons keep your yoga up on your own, it isn’t only for your physical body it’s also for your itself. Yoga helps your brain to calm and ideas to flow more easily which helps in every way in your hectic life.
