IMPORTANT BITS OF INFORMATION
Always remember that not all exercise is suitable for everyone and this and any exercise program could result in injury.
To reduce the risk of injury, never force or strain. I encourage you to carefully listen to your body and to always take care when determining your ability to do poses offered during the exercise class, particularly if you have a specific injury or condition.
If you feel pain, discomfort, dizziness during the class do not continue, lay down on your yoga mat and rest until you feel better.
Also, there are certain limitations for women who are menstruating or pregnant. Remember to always let your teacher know if above apply to you.
Please note that participants and distributors of my Good Morning Yoga Classes footage disclaim any liability, or a loss araising out of or in connection with the services or exercises and advice herein.
Before starting the online classes from home please read the TIPS section and prepare your Yoga space and yourself for the practice.
Here is the list of things which will help you make the most out of my Good Morning Yoga Classes directly from the comfort of your home:
- Place of practice – find a quiet, clean, uncluttered, pleasant room with a flat surface. Room should be well ventilated but not drafty. Practicing in the draft or wind, heavily air-conditioned room or under the fun can upset the body temperature and cause chills. Practicing in too hot or poorly ventilated space may cause unpleasant sweating, overheating or dizziness. Avoid practicing in noisy places or in a direct sunlight. If you wish you can light up a relaxing candle in your room. When you light it focus on it and picture burning away any negative thoughts or feelings you may hold – just burn them away.
- Yoga mat – have a good quality yoga mat or rug (preferably non-slip) which sticks well to the surface beneath and gives you a good support and extra cushioning. Sliding with or on the mat can cause injuries. In turn, a very thin mat (i.e. travel mat with 3mm thickness) can make exercising rather uncomfortable or painful. Always position your mat/rug in a space so you have the freedom to perform a variety of yogic postures and remain far from furniture which can be knocked over, can fall on you or you can fall on. Accessories as blocks and bolsters are great, however they can be replaced with books or a stack of pillows.
- Breathing – in Yoga the rule of thumb is to breath through the nose and not through the mouth (unless otherwise specifically instructed).
- Clothes – wear loose or elastic, breathable clothing which is comfortable. The body can be covered with a blanket or sheet when it is cold while performing the ‘Shavasana’ known as the Corpse Pose. Shoes aren’t necessary for Yoga. Most people prefer to be barefoot on their mat but if you wish to wear grippy socks you are welcome to do so.
- Food intake – Perform morning practice on an empty stomach if possible. If you are very hungry and can’t see yourself getting through the class without consuming something beforehand just have a small sip of warm water and mouthful of a little protein or carbohydrates. It could be something like a piece of fruit, a little bit of porridge oats or other cooked grains or a handful of nuts.
- Joint hyper-mobility – hyper-mobility is a condition that features joints that easily move beyond the normal range expected for that particular joint e.g knees, elbows, shoulders, fingers and hips. Always remember to keep a micro-bend in postures where weight is on straight arms, knees, shoulder etc. (for example in plank, downward facing dog, wheel pose …). If you micro-bend your joints you don’t rest weight on your ligaments but instead force your muscles to do the work. This will help you keep your joints stable and protect them from injuries. Do not stretch to your maximum during the Yoga practice – this can lead to over stretching and your soft tissues in and around joints (cartilage, tendons, ligaments) can tear.
WHY TO DO YOGA REGULARLY?
Regular Yoga practice can benefit you in numerous ways:
Good Morning Yoga Programme is designed for beginners, however it is available for everyone and especially those hungry to practice more frequently from the comfort of own home.
Summing up, Yoga if practiced mindfully is a great way to kick start your day and keep you healthy and energised. The shorter regular practice will benefit you more than random, odd long sessions.
Practicing Yoga for 30 minutes, 5 days per week over 3 weeks with me will enhance your wellbeing, teach you how to do Yoga independently at home and will definitely save you time on travelling to attend a class in a Yoga studio.
Last but not least, once the course of classes ends you will have recordings of the lessons so you can continue your 30 minutes morning Yoga routine till it becomes your daily habit and morning ritual.
