Yoga: how to get exactly what you need from your class

If you've been to a yoga class before, it's likely you've heard something along the lines of "do what feels right for you," or "move how it feels good to move." And while this may seem a little ambiguous, one thing practicing asana teaches us to do really well is to hone our interoception - our ability to understand and feel what's going on inside our bodies.


How can yoga help me to feel my best?


By creating a little sensitivity to what's going on inside our bodies (how fast our heart is beating or how tired or energised we might be feeling for example) it puts us in a better position to know exactly what would should be doing to keep ourselves feeling our best.


Yoga can guide you to become your own inner teacher.

It's a bit of a myth that we should be working to our maximum, building up a sweat and getting our heart beats racing if it's been a long week or we've had a few rough nights sleep. Maybe we'll respond much better to a nurturing yoga session that gives our nervous systems a break and promotes a little inner healing for the body and mind.


What type of yoga is good for me?


You should pick your yoga class based on the journey you want to go on. There are lots of different styles and brands out there. From classic Hatha, sweaty vinyasa, slow and juicy yin, to chilled out restorative, there really is something for everybody.


But if this feels a little overwhelming, you're not alone! A good teacher should be able to guide you to connect with how you're feeling, help you to identify what you need from your class and then guide you on the journey that's right for you.
