Selecting your class

I’m new to yoga. What class would be best for me?
You can take a class with “beginner” in the title. In our “Yoga Basic +(Beginner/Intermediate)” class, you will learn the names of poses, how to make them, breathing techniques and more. We also recommend our “YOGA for Pain Relief with Alignment” series which focuses on alignment for pain relief with breathing techniques and basic poses.You will fully feel the benefits and effects of this class at the end of the session.
I’m not very flexible. I don’t know if I will be able to keep up.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to be flexible. Think of it as a chance to receive a gift or learn something from yoga. Stiff areas are the result of habits engrained in both body and mind. By concentrating on stiff areas you normally are unaware of, you will discover habits your body and mind have unconsciously formed. And these discoveries lead to new transformations. In our “Yoga Basic +(Beginner/Intermediate)” class, “YOGA for Pain Relief with Alignment” series and “Open 4 MEN (Get Flexible!) (Beginner ~)” and so on, we have arranged an assortment of positions according to the level of stiffness in your body and skeletal structure. Feel free to ask us for details.
I have been studying yoga less than 6 months. What class do you recommend for me?

How about our “I. I do yoga”, “II. I do yoga×Yoga does you” or “III. Yoga does you” series harnessing the strengths of Kripalu Yoga? By practicing the 8 limbs of the Yoga Sutra, it will bring about deep realizations and self-acceptance in regards to daily life as well as leads to self-integration and a more fulfilling existence.

Another “YOGA for Pain Relief with Alignment” series also address specific troubles and asymmetries to provide you the ultimate level of relaxation.
I know the names and forms of poses but am not sure if I am doing them right.
For those who are unsure if they are doing their poses correctly, we recommend our “Yoga Basic +(Beginner/Intermediate)” class. Here, you will concentrate on learning breathing techniques and the names of poses and how to make them. We will carefully help you unravel each pose from an anatomical perspective and instruct you in effectively using each part of your body. In our highly-recommended “Private Lesson” classes, we focus specifically on your individual needs and develop lesson content accordingly so that you can deepen your yoga practice given the current condition of your body.
I’m worried about postpartum pelvic stretching.
Pelvic issues are a concern for all women following childbirth. In our “Postnatal with toddlers(Child friendly) ”, ” 2 sorts of “3D Pelvic Alignment(Beginner ~)” classes and “3D Spinal Alignment② - Back Pains Relief (Beginner ~)” you will work on carefully warming up and alignment your pelvis. Some students have reported having a bad habit of crossing their legs, but now their body is so well-aligned it resists this very notion. For female pelvic alignment, it is also important to work on adjusting the spine as this is deeply related to the autonomic nerves. For this, we also highly recommend our “Treatment for Beauty disorder”.

Is it okay to eat before or after the lesson?
(Before lesson)Body needs at least 1 hour of rest after any meal to resume the normal blood circulation. When you eat, your blood focus on digestion to convert food into energy. If you start exercising right after meal, digestive blood flow and muscle blood flow compete with one another, which result in muscle with less power and incompleted digestion. If you inevitably have to eat within one hour before the lesson, it should be a good digester, with less oil. On the other hand, many studies about “Exercise and health” say that moderate aerobic exercise 1 hour after meal will contribute to control weight and blood sugar, improve immune system, and reduce arterial stiffness. Eating 1 hour before lesson is highly recommended especially for people with low blood glucose or anemia.

(After lesson )Depends on exercise intensity. After high-intensity exercise, your body must take glycogen with Vitamins, minerals and healthy protein to aid recovery. After Yoga lesson and other moderate exercise, digestion and absorption are also increased, so we recommend starting with what is easy to consume for your body with low fat.
