6 Tips: Getting Started on Your Yoga Journey

New to Yoga?

Starting a yoga journey can be an exciting and fulfilling experience, but it can also feel intimidating, especially if you’re new to the practice. Here are some helpful tips to help you get started.

Set Your Intention:

Start your yoga journey by setting an intention or a goal. It can be as simple as wanting to improve your flexibility, reduce stress, or simply trying something new. Having a clear intention will help you stay motivated and focused throughout your journey.

Start With Beginner-Friendly Classes:

If you’re new to yoga, it’s important to start with beginner-friendly classes that are designed to introduce you to the practice. All our classes are taught with beginners in mind and our team of experienced teachers will be there to guide you every step of the way. If you are looking a dedicated introductory class join us for Yoga for Beginners on Sunday mornings at 11am.

Listen to Your Body:

Yoga is a practice that requires you to listen to your body and respect your limitations. It’s important to start slowly and avoid pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone. Don’t worry about doing every pose perfectly, focus on finding what feels good and works for your body.

Don’t Compare Yourself to Others:

Yoga is a personal journey, and it’s important to remember that everyone’s practice looks different. Don’t compare yourself to others in the class or on social media. Instead, focus on your own progress and growth.

Be Consistent:

Like any other practice, consistency is key in yoga. Try to practice yoga regularly, even if it’s just a few minutes each day. This will help you build strength, flexibility, and establish a routine that supports your overall well-being.

Have an Open Mind:

Keep an open mind and be willing to try new things. Yoga offers a wide range of styles and approaches, so be curious and explore different types of classes until you find what resonates with you.


Yoga is a practice, not a destination. Be patient with yourself, enjoy the process, and don’t be afraid to ask questions or seek guidance from your teacher. Most importantly, have fun and enjoy the journey!
