What to Expect in a Yoga class and Easy Pose

Posted on November 6, 2015 at 10:35 AM

 

What to expect in a yoga class

When you first walk into a yoga class, you may be surprised to find people lying on the floor. Don’t worry, you’re not late, regulars often arrive early so they can relax before the class starts. In our busy lives there’s rarely time to be “in the moment”. A short time, lying in savasana (corpse pose) helps you leave your day outside and focus inwards.

Tell the teacher if you have any injuries or medical issues that might affect your practice. Some asanas (poses) are contraindicated for certain conditions. For example, savasana is not recommended after the first trimester of pregnancy so if you’re pregnant expect to be offered an alternative such as lying on your side.

Once you’ve spoken to the teacher, roll out your mat and relax. Remove your shoes and socks (if you haven’t already), lie down, focus on your breathing and enjoy being “in the moment”.

Sukhasana/Easy pose

Many yoga classes start in a seated position. For most beginners this will be sukhasana (cross legged) which you probably remember from school. Sukhasana (its Sanskrit name) translates as “easy pose” so this should be simple. However, there are many things to consider. Your spine should be straight with your head in line and your pelvis in a neutral position. Your teacher may offer you a block or cushion to help align your pelvis. Sit on the edge of the block rather than placing your whole bottom on it. It’s an aid, not a seat!

If you can’t sit cross legged don’t worry. Kneeling is an excellent alternative. Another option may be to use a chair. Your knees should be level with your hips and your feet flat on the ground using a block to raise the floor up if necessary.

So are you sitting comfortably? Then your yoga practice can begin.
