Recommendations for those New to Yoga:
1. Take it Beginner’s Classes or an Intro to Hatha Yoga series
2. If you take an All Levels class TAKE IT EASY….SAVOR each pose.
3. If you are aware of your breath and you feel something in your body then you are doing yoga.
4. Try different teachers and styles until you find what resonates with you.
5. Take time to be a beginner. It is a wonderful place to be in your practice. I even tell more experienced practitioners to take beginner’s classes to return to beginner’s mind.


Recommendations for New Teachers

1. Take it SLOW. Teach just 1 – 2 classes a week MAX.
2. Give yourself a LONG time to develop as a teacher. Practice Patience.
3. Shadow, assist etc a more advanced/master yoga teacher.
4. Always take classes or practice more than you teach!!!!
