Choosing a Place to Exercise on Yoga Mats

If you have long wanted to do yoga and finally, decided and even bought a couple of yoga mats, you will face a problem with choosing a good yoga studio. Nowadays there is a huge number of different styles and directions in yoga that differ in their dynamics, sets of exercises, emphasis on asanas or breathing. Most often couches in yoga studios will teach you hatha yoga, kundalini yoga, raja yoga, ayengar yoga, etc. But, all these diverse directions pursue the same goal - improving the overall physical state and achieving inner harmony of the soul and body. Of course, it is easy for a newcomer to get lost in this variety of styles and pick up what they like. For this, some studios offer beginners a small overview courses and even the first free class. By the way, ask the administrator if there are discounts or a subscription for yoga at the studio, as a rule, they are much cheaper than one-time classes and this will give you considerable savings.

Overview courses are divided into two parts, during the practical part you can do yoga poses (asanas), meditations, breathing exercises on yoga mats and other techniques designed for the beginner level. On the theoretical part, the instructor will briefly describe the origins and differences of one or another type of yoga. In the process of these exercises, one should not strive to perform heavy asanas on yoga mats immediately. This will only lead to disappointment and even injury. An unprepared organism should get used to the load gradually. Easy asanas will help beginners not only stretch their muscles and strengthen their spine, but also relax. After all, you will achieve results only by learning how to feel comfortable and relax doing asanas. Relaxation in combination with proper breathing will help improve health and lead you to a new level of yoga knowledge. After you have decided on the style, you will need to find a studio in which it is practiced.

It is desirable that the chosen studio would be either close to home, or close to work, school, etc. A convenient location will allow you to spend very little time commuting. By the way, on the interactive map you can see where the closest studios are located. When attending the very first lesson in the studio, you need to pay attention to its comfort, equipment and facilities (yoga mats, bar, toilets). The premises should often be ventilated they should be cozy and warm and the atmosphere in the room should match your style of yoga. For example, for bikram yoga, it should have almost tropical conditions with a humidity of about 40% and a temperature of 38-42 °C. Any studio should have locker rooms and changing rooms so that the clients could dress in comfortable clothes and be fully prepared for exercises.

For convenient exercises there should be high-quality workout equipment, for example, yoga mats for classes. However, the absolute majority of clients prefer to buy their own yoga mats. If there is a library with necessary books about yoga practices, it is a big plus. But the most important thing in choosing a yoga studio is a qualified instructor! Usually, beginners are advised to try working with several instructors in order to find someone who could explain the benefits of the performed asanas, pranayamas, the relaxation of muscles and who would take care of the health of their clients. If the performance of the asanas becomes easier for you and after the lesson you do not feel tension or fatigue, it means that such an instructor and this style of yoga suits you.
