Questions to Ask a Yoga Teacher

Although a teacher may not be certified, he or she may have many valuable years of teaching experience.

If your problems are serious, you should consult your doctor before practicing yoga.

Yoga attracts many people as a means of relaxation. Common methods of relaxing, such as watching television or chatting with friends, serve more as a distraction than a means of achieving complete relaxation. Yoga teaches your body and mind to relax completely by consciously releasing both physical and mental tension. You can achieve this relaxation through the practice of yoga poses, breath awareness and relaxation techniques. In fact, relaxation is so important in yoga that a portion of every practice should be entirely devoted to relaxation.
