Welcome to Beginner’s Yoga
Here you’ll find a series of classes and workshops designed to teach you the basics of yoga asana and to introduce you to some of the different styles of yoga at Vhairi Slaven Yoga.
If you need to adapt your yoga practice, go to the Adapted Beginner's Page.
It can be challenging to start a new practice and make it a habit.
Here’s some advice to help you stick to it:
Make a realistic commitment as to when you will practice and how often.
Start saying to yourself, I practice yoga on a XX (and choose a specific day and time).
To feel a difference in how your mind and body feel, I would recommend practicing at least 3 times a week.
Hook up with an accountability partner. If you can, do it together with a friend in person or on Zoom, or get a friend who’ll commit to doing the 3-month calendar with you.
Note the benefits you’re feeling. Keep a journal or use an app to track your sleep, mood and how you feel in your body.
Decide on a posture, movement or functional task or movement that you would like to achieve and make that your goal. It could be something like holding a balance or a strenuous posture, getting up and down off a chair without using your hands, getting your arms straight above your head, or improving your sleep.
