It is totally normal for you to be a little nervous before your first class. Not to worry – every one of the teachers at Bikram Yoga Burlington has been trained by Bikram Choudhury himself in a very intensive, nine-week training program. The teacher is going to stand in the front of the room and let you know what to do, step by step.
This class is specifically designed for beginners, so know that with a little practice and experience, you’ll quickly feel right at home. Every class will have all levels of yoga practitioners in it – from newbies like yourself, to those who have been practicing for many years. The experienced yogis will inspire you, mentor you, and encourage you. Keep in mind – every one of them has been through exactly what you will be going through in your first class.
You do NOT need to be flexible to do Bikram Yoga. In fact, if you are inflexible, this Yoga is perfect for you. The room is heated specifically to help increase your flexibility.
Please arrive 20 minutes early for your first class. This gives us time for registration and orientation. Arriving early ensures a stress free and relaxed beginning to your life long Bikram Yoga practice. Your first time to the studio, you must arrive before the class starts in order to take the class.
Don’t think you have to get in shape before coming to class. That puts the cart before the horse! Come take your first class, and then take class as often as you possibly can and you will quickly lose weight, get in shape, and feel absolutely wonderful.
Take your second class within 24 hours. The second class is the equivalent of 2 to 3 classes, and you will bypass much of the soreness you’d experience otherwise.
Make up your mind to take 10 classes as quickly as possible. Then no one has to tell you how good this yoga is for you. Your own personal experience will guide you.
Remember, everyone had their very first Bikram Yoga class, even the people in the front row who have been coming for years. They make it look easy because they persevered, and you can too.
So there you go…you’re ready to begin…now pick a convenient time and come to class as quickly as you can. We look forward to meeting you soon!
