Welcome to the latest blog post from your favorite community of Louisville apartments! This week’s post is all about one of our most popular amenities — the on-site yoga studio! We take a lot of pride in our ability to provide residents with a space in which they can stay in shape, and our yoga studio is just a small part of that. We also provide residents with a fitness center and a spin studio where they can sweat, lift and do whatever they need to do to stay happy and healthy.
This week, however, we’re focusing on the yoga studio. We want to make sure all our residents feel comfortable going to the yoga studio, so we’ve put together a list of tips for people who are just starting to get into yoga. When you’re done reading this post, we hope you feel comfortable taking a trip to the yoga studio.
Without further delay, let’s check out the list of tips below! Oh, and when you’re done reading this week’s blog, please feel free to share the link to this post with your friends and neighbors at your community of apartments in Louisville, KY.
Keep a yoga journal
Yoga can be an intensely personal experience, as you’ll test the limits of your body and mind. Yoga might seem like a purely physical activity, but it takes a lot of willpower to hold positions for longer, try new positions, and convince yourself to to go to the yoga studio day after day.
It helps to keep a journal and write it in after every yoga session. You can remind yourself of what worked and what didn’t, and write down how you feel before and after each yoga session. Odds are, you’ll notice a big improvement in your mood after every session! At least, that’s the goal.
Define a ‘successful’ session
Everyone defines success differently, and that’s as true in yoga as it is in any other part of life. Just because you went down to the studio for 30 minutes doesn’t mean you had a successful session — or maybe it does. Figure out how you’ll define successful yoga sessions moving forward, and try to achieve those goals every time you practice!
Read up on breathing techniques
As we mentioned before, there’s a lot more to yoga than stretching and holding positions. Breathing is a big part of it, and it’s easy to lose sight of that when you’re trying your hardest to hold a position for just a few more seconds. Here’s a link to some tried and true yoga breathing techniques. Try to keep these techniques in mind next time you’re struggling to hold your downward dog pose!
With that, we’ve reached the end of our list of yoga tips for beginners.
