Five Things You Should Know Before Your First Yoga Class
It can feel a bit intimidating walking into a brand new studio if you have never been to a yoga class before. At NuPower, know that we couldn’t be more excited that you are giving yoga a try. We truly believe that it is beneficial for every single person.
However, we know trying new things can be daunting. We want to make sure you feel confident and supported walking into your first class. So here are five things that will hopefully make your first class a huge success and leave you loving yoga.
1. You don’t need to bring your own mat and towel.
No need to run out and buy your own equipment for your first class! NuPower has plenty of mats and yoga towels that you can rent. Just let your instructor know what you need when you check-in.
Complementary blocks, hand towels, and NuBells (some classes will require these) are always available for you to use.
2. You don’t need fancy yoga garb.
You don’t need to drop a ton of cash at Lululemon in order to have a great yoga class. We recommend wearing tight, athletic leggings and a breathable top. Wear what makes you feel athletic and confident. Don’t feel like you need to splurge to fit in. We like you just the way you are!
3. You don’t need to know “How to do Yoga” before coming.
Your instructor will guide you through each movement with demonstrations. You will always know what to do and when. There will never be a time where you are on your own, trying to figure out what to do. We will support you through the entire class!
4. You don’t have to do every pose
A lot of fitness methodologies will tell you to push yourself past your limits, even in pain. At NuPower, we believe that you know what you need. If there is a pose that doesn’t feel right, take child’s pose. It is always available to you.
5. You don’t need to hesitate when you have a question.
If you have a question about NuPower, yoga or anything else, please feel free to ask your instructor before or after class. Our instructors are here to make this the best experience for you.
We can’t wait to see you at NuPower soon!
