Welcome to Lesson 1 of the Beginners 10 Part Course....
Before commencing your classes you will need to find a space where you can practice on a regular basis. When looking for a place to practice, It is best to find a quiet, clean space where there will be no distractions.
You can practice at any time of the day however It is advisable to achieve some consistency on when you practice, obviously the more you practice, the more you will benefit.
It is recommended to wait 3 hours after a main meal and 1 hour after a light snack before practice. Do not hold your breath whilst practicing and always breathe in and out through the nose. Do not strain yourself, listen to what your body is trying to tell you. If you feel sharp pain, stop what you are doing and discuss the matter with your teacher, Melissa or a health practitioner.
If you have any back issues or joint problems such as the hips, knees ankles etc, or you are menstruating please step the feet apart instead of jumping when going in and out of the standing poses.
Start with class 1 and then follow up with the short class later on in the week. You may practice these classes as many times as you wish before moving on to Lesson 2
