Back in the studio, some simple group practice guidelines include – not stepping on each other’s mats, coming to class ten minutes early, silent deep breathing, and introverting before class begins. Learn to zone out fire engine and police sirens, as we would zone out negative thoughts. In a classroom, do as the instructor says, not as s/he does – the mirror method does not work for everyone. If the music is loud, ask to keep it down – jarring music drains us most during balance postures. Repetitions are for gyms – during yoga practice, a slow, deliberate motion that corresponds with your breath is most effective. Coordinating movement with breath helps maintain the natural rhythm of harmony in our body.
