What should I do before class starts? Top 3 tips!

At Rasa Yoga, we want you to get the most out of every class. Here are my top three tips to enhance your yoga experience:

1. Pause Before Class

Before stepping into the studio, take a moment in your car to breathe deeply and check in with yourself. Whether you’re coming to a 6:00 a.m. class or a 7:00 p.m. session, this brief moment of awareness can significantly impact your practice. It helps you understand what you need as you begin your yoga journey for the day.

2. Prepare Mindfully

Use the minutes before class to connect with yourself. With the insights gained from your moment of pause, decide what you need most:

  • Connect with Community: Engage in a quick chat with fellow yogis to ground yourself.

  • Mindful Movements: Take a few mindful movements on your mat to help you fully arrive, especially if you’re feeling restless or anxious.

  • Find Stillness: If you feel the need for calm, find a quiet spot and enjoy a moment of stillness.

This mindful preparation helps you transition smoothly into your practice, ensuring you’re ready both physically and mentally.

3. Stay Curious

My number one tip for any yoga class is to stay curious. Let go of how you showed up yesterday or any expectations you have about your practice. Embrace each class with an open mind and curiosity.

As you stay present with your breath, this curiosity will guide you:

  • When to Move Forward: Push yourself gently when you feel ready to explore new poses or deepen your practice.

  • When to Hold Steady: Maintain your current state when it feels right, allowing yourself to build strength and stability.

  • When to Pull Back: Respect your body's limits and pull back when necessary to prevent strain or injury.

By staying curious and listening to your body, you’ll find a balance that’s right for you each day.

See You in Class Soon!

I look forward to seeing you all in class soon. Remember, each yoga practice is a unique journey. Embrace it with mindfulness and curiosity, and you’ll gain the most from every session.

Namaste. 🌟🙏
