Leave the your phone at home
If you’re used to working out by lifting weights or running, you’re probably used to wearing headphones the whole time. Music is a great motivator for intense workouts, but yoga is less about getting amped up and more about letting yourself relax. It’s still a workout, but it’s a workout that involves focus, precision, and a sense of peace and quiet. It’s hard to achieve those three things if you’ve got music playing in your ears, which is why we recommend leaving your phone at home when you come down to the yoga studio.
Remember the meditation aspect
Yoga is as much about mental health as it is about physical health, which is why it’s so important to at least attempt to meditate during your yoga sessions. Meditating is extremely difficult, so don’t be hard on yourself if you struggle to concentrate. What matters most with meditating is taking the time to focus on breathing and little else. Sure, you’ll end up thinking about things you forgot to do at work or errands you have to run, but if you’re even trying to meditate you’re succeeding.
Pay attention to your alignment
When you’re trying a new pose, it’s not about how far you can stretch or how long you can hold it. The most important aspect of every yoga pose is you alignment. Yoga is about balance, and your ability to balance hinges on your alignment. If you’re practicing yoga by watching a video, pay close attention to the instructor’s alignment above all else.
Alignment is important for keeping your balance during difficult poses, but proper alignment also helps guard against injuries. If your back hurts after a yoga session or your shoulders feel out of whack, it’s probably because you need to work on your alignment. Luckily, alignment is easy to fix once you start paying attention to it.
