My first yoga experience at Anytime Fitness!
Actually, I’ve already experienced
yoga before but since I couldn’t remember anymore when and where so I just consider
this as my first, but I know for sure that somewhere in the past tells me that
the experience itself was so great enough for me not to recall. You might be
wondering where did this kind of exercise started? We’ll, to put in simpler
term, Yoga is the Sanskrit word for “union”, which started in Northern India
over 5,000 years ago which was developed by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization. It
is a form of exercise that uses posture and breathing techniques to induce
relaxation and improve strength. In Classical Sanskrit, the word yogi is
derived from yogin, which refers to a practitioner of yoga. Yogi is technically
male, and yoginī is the term used for female practitioners. The ancient Yogis
had a belief that in order to be in harmony with oneself and environment, men
have to integrate the body, the mind, and the spirit, so they formulated a way
to achieve and maintain this balance. The form includes Exercise, Breathing and
Meditation which forms the 3-pillar of strength for
yoga. The routine we had actually revolved in the 3-pillars of strength.
These are the snippets I've got from our last Yoga exercise.
Pose or Crocodile Pose
Half Foot Big Toe Pose
Locust Pose B
It was a bit awkward at first since it was my first time and I still didn't know how to do the poses correctly but I'm so thankful with our teacher, Teacher Jen, for being so patient with me. But all I think at that time was, everyone was once a beginner. So I was able to finish the exercise.Teacher Jen concluded the exercise by saying "Namaste" which means " I bow to you ".
These are the things that you have to consider before starting Yoga:
Don't have a big meal right before class.Just eat lightly
a few hours before the start of class.
Don't drink water while doing yoga, but have some before and
Don't wear shoes or socks while doing yoga.
Tell the teacher that it's your first time in class.
Don't be shy to ask the teacher for help if you need it.
Familiarize yourself or maybe read some articles about beginners' yoga poses before
you take your first class.
Thank you Anytime Fitness CDO for the wonderful experience.
