Just yourself.Yoga is for all abilities, so just keep an open mind and enjoy yourself. Trying yoga in the comfort of your own home is a great way to start. That’s why I started Dynamyk Yoga to help beginners try out basic postures at home, before venturing into a class or gym environment.
2: What should I wear?
Loose comfortable clothing or exercise leggings, no shoes or socks. Yoga is done bare feet, but grip socks are Ok to wear.
3: How close to a class can I eat? What can I eat?
Eat something light 1 hour before but no heavy foods such as grains or meats that are hard to digest.
4: I’m not flexible, can I practise yoga?
People come to yoga to become flexible, prevent injuries because they are not flexible. You are a perfect candidate for yoga!
5: Can I do yoga if I have painful knees or a stiff back?
Yes. Hatha or Yin Yoga is a very gentle sequence of postures to help ease tight muscles and stiff joints.
6: How is yoga different to stretching?
Yoga is unique because we connect movement of body, fluctuations of the mind to the rhythm of our breath.
7: I’m religious will yoga affect my beliefs?
No. Yoga is not a religion. It is a philosophy that provides a framework for spiritual growth and although it interweaves philosophies from Hinduism and Buddhism it is not necessary to study those paths or surrender your own beliefs.
8: How many times a week should I practise?
Yoga is amazing, even 1 hour a week is sufficient to experience the benefits. If you can do more than this, you will benefit even more. It is suggested to start with 2-3 times per week for 1 hour but if you can only do 20 minutes then this is fine too.
