What can I expect to do in a beginning yoga class?
There are three main components to most western yoga classes: poses(asana), breathing techniques (pranyama), and relaxation. Some classes will also include additional elements such as meditation or chanting. Many people have fears that they may be asked to try standing on their heads or twisting into a pretzel-like position. These practices are part of yoga, but are only recommended for very advanced practitioners and will not be included in beginner classes. Additionally, an important aspect of yoga is that it is non-competitive. Students work at their own ability level, being sure to respect the body and its limitations. You should never go beyond what is comfortable and reasonable and a good yoga instructor will help you determine what is appropriate for you in each pose. All yoga poses can be modified for your safety and comfort, to accommodate any special needs you may have.
