Top Tips for Wannabe Yogis – Yoga Retreat March 2014

Original post: Another World Adventures

1min read

In March 2014 a very special yoga retreat will take place in Liberia, West Africa for a week with Danny Paradise. This incredible event is in support of the More Than Me Foundation and will bring a small group of like-minded souls together to expand their minds, stretch their bodies and open their worlds.

We’ve had a look around and found some top tips from yogis around the world about getting into yoga for beginners. Here’s what they had to say:

“Along with your yoga mat and your towel, bring a sense of humor to class. Students who get hung up on doing everything ‘perfectly’ are less likely to come back.” — Seane Corn, creator of the “Vinyasa Flow Yoga” DVD series and national yoga ambassador for YouthAIDS

Don’t Force It

“Don’t force your way into yoga. Adapt your movements to accommodate your level of strength and stamina, so that you avoid injury and feel comfortable in every pose.” — Baron Baptiste, founder of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga

Connect to the Pose

“Watch out for what I call ‘self mutilation’ — spending your time talking to yourself about what you can’t do. This will make your practice dismal. The more you stay connected to feeling the pose — to breathing into the pose — the better your experience will be.” — Ana Forrest, founder of Forrest Yoga

Be Open

“When you get to class, keep an open mind. Tune in to your own infinite possibilities. And drink water.” –Guruatma Singh Khalsa, co-owner of Franklin Yoga; yoga instructor for 32 years

Wise words, we think!
