Finding a great yoga class is just like finding a great arts school. A perfect arts school that has amazing teachers who have expertize in subjects related to your interest can make you a great artist while an average school or a not-so-good kind of school won’t be able to make you shine. So the question is how to find that great yoga studio? Well, given below are five tips that helped me in finding the perfect yoga studio for myself.
- Try and find the best. So many different types of yoga, so many different types of studios and teachers. In fact, it seems like an umbrella term to me. So one way of finding the best class for yourself is to test out multiple classes for a few days before you choose the one that seems good to you.
- Before dropping a class, try it twice at least. Judging a class in just one visit isn’t the right thing. You should take a class at least twice before judging it. A teacher may be trying something different from the first time when you stepped into the class or may be suffering from a bad day. So don’t ever judge a class in just new visit.
- Find out a class that challenges you physically and mentally, but is also not too hard for making you disinterested in going to it. Yoga certainly does wonders in life, but only if practiced regularly! Your yoga class shouldn’t be miles away from your home so you find it hard to reach there. Try to find out a class that helps you in developing a habit gently then challenges you once you’ve established your own pattern.
- Get committed with the class, but don’t hesitate in leaving too if it doesn’t seem a good fit to you. Sometimes the key of becoming good at yoga is to appear consistently at the same yoga class for a week. Of course, commitment helps in learning faster. But at the same time you should also understand if things aren’t working for you and asking for a change.
- If there’s no perfect fit for you, try this. Sometimes it may seem to you as no yoga class is perfect for you. And it may also be true, there’s no doubt in it. Depending on the locality in which you live, there may not be enough yoga classes around you. Or even if there are enough classes, they may not align perfectly with your schedule, fitness and other preferences. In such circumstances you should choose the class that aligns with most of your requirements. Once you get involved with yoga, you’ll forget the things which don’t align properly between the schedule of your yoga class and your life. That’s the point of yoga – it makes you forget the things that aren’t well and increases focus on the positivity.
