This is the advice I give to all beginner yoga students. These 3 things can help you get started with a yoga practice and stick with it.
I’ve been a practicing yogi since 2008. I remember the day of my first yoga class because it left a significant impression on me.
I was completely captivated and fascinated by my first yoga experience, and I wanted more. Like a cloud in harmony with the fluctuations of the wind, I floated out of class that evening.
When I got home, I read my horoscope and it mentioned yoga!
I knew this was a symbol for my next step on my journey, and I couldn’t wait to share this beautiful practice with other people. Learn more about why I became a yoga teacher.
The 3 tips below are what every new yoga student should know before beginning a yoga practice. These are the same things I brought with me to my first class as a student and the same things I carry with me today.
Have an open mind.
Listen to your body and what it needs to help you stay safe.

Practice It: Carry a Sense of Wonder Wherever You Go
“Why?” is my favorite question because I am genuinely curious about how things and thoughts originate and the underlying meaning of them all. Carry this same sense of curiosity with you, asking “Why?” frequently.
As always, check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise routine.
