Yoga Classes: Which is Best for You?

Yoga Classes Unsure of what class to take? Looking at some of the schedules at yoga studios, you might find yourself confused as to what yoga classes would work for you. I’m often asked by friends or those that are getting ready to try yoga what kind of yoga classes they should select. For some, it’s daunting enough to get up the nerve to try a class and then when they look at the schedule, they get overwhelmed. “Restorative” or “vinyasa?” “Power” or “Ashtanga”? I can’t even pronounce these words! “Advanced”? Certainly not! “Beginner?” Well, I’m pretty athletic…. does that count?

Welcome to the world of yoga in the West. What started out as a practice that was pretty consistent from studio to studio has taken on a whole new meaning. There are even yoga hybrids, where traditional yoga is mixed with another exercise routine- “yoga-pilates” (a.k.a yogalates), Spinning and Yoga (Yoga Spinning) and Yoga with Weights (I don’t think that has a catchy name).

Let me start out by saying that I’m in support of anything that gets people moving. And, as long as you aren’t working with a specific injury , illness or specific condition, for the most part, you can attend any class and see how it feels in your body and make your own decision. In fact, I rather like that approach, because it’s a bit more intuitive and taps into your own sense of what will work for you. The one pitfall to this approach, though, is that you may misjudge a class after only one session. Some classes and practices are meant to be done a few times before you can really get a sense of how the practice will work with your body. The same applies to teachers; sometimes an experience with a teacher can be off-putting that first time; you find yourself reacting defensively to much of what the teacher is saying; you find yourself annoyed at the sequencing, or frustrated for most of the class. Unless there was something specifically confrontational about the teacher or you found the class to be completely out of the realm of what you enjoy, try it at least once more.

So, having said that, here are some of the general kinds of yoga classes you might find and a little description of each one:

Beginner Yoga Classes : I’m always in favor of a beginner’s class, for every level. Being around beginners keeps us humble. It reminds us to pay attention and avoid pitfalls that can come with experience (becoming oblivious to the details). Beginners or “basics” classes are a low-key, fantastic way for a newer student or experienced student to learn and experience the studio and the teachers in a more low-pressure environment. However, if you are new to yoga or haven’t practiced in a while, it’s a “must do” as it’s so important to learn proper alignment. I have known quite a few people who never took a basics class and jumped into regular classes, where the understanding of alignment is assumed. They never really learned safe, solid body mechanics for many of the traditional yoga poses and while in mos...
