Practice & Safety Tips

  • Accept yourself and your body as you are without judgment.  Wellness, like life, is a journey.  Be good to yourself & embrace what is possible today.
  • Declare your mat a criticism and judgment-free zone.
  • Follow your own wisdom. Your teacher is your guide. YOU are your own leader.
  • Listen to your body and know when to ease out or find comfort in the healthy discomfort.  Be a witness to the difference between healthy tension (stay) and pain (modify and/or exit).
  • Pace your movement with breath; inviting your mind to focus on your breathing rhythm. Let your breath lead.
  • Stack and soften your joints.
  • Before entering a pose, activate your core and neutralize your pelvis.
  • Hydrate well before and after practice.
  • Avoid eating a heavy meal up to 2 hours prior to class.
  • For better balance, maintain a steady gaze throughout each posture.
  • You are perfectly imperfect. Practice replacing frustration with enthusiasm and inspiration.
  • Drop the comparison. You are beautiful and so is the person next to you!
