It is critical for students to carefully monitor how they are feeling and how their body is responding to the various exercises in the yoga class. Any signs of pain, strain or discomfort should be discussed with the instructor as soon as the class is over.
Yoga is a type of movement and fitness that takes a long time to learn and become a part of someone's life. It is a lifestyle choice and needs to be incorporated into the individuals routine to be truly effective.
