Students often ask me how frequently they should come to yoga class. My general answer “In an ideal world where time and money are never an obstacle and a healthy body is your goal, a daily practice is ideal. ” Here in the real world it can sometimes be a challenge to balance all three; health, time and money. Here’s a few reasons to consider how an unlimited yoga class pass may be the best way to help you reach your wellness goals and stretch your body and budget.
Self Health. Make yoga your preventive health plan. You will be glad you did. Stress is cumulative, so is relaxation. The busier and more stressful your life is, the more you need yoga to restore and maintain balance of mind ,body and spirit. A gentle Stress Less yoga practice is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself. It calms and quietness the mind, increases oxygen to brain, heart, and muscles and makes metabolism more efficient. Asana everyday may keep the doctor away.
Community: It’s more than a fitness class, it’s a yoga community. Practicing yoga at a studio is much more of an experience than practicing on your own at home.Of the many benefits we get from yoga, none is greater than the gift of community. It’s an opportunity to come together to support each other in our practice, make new friends and explore new boundaries in a safe supported environment. People experience more emotional balance and thrive better when they function as part of a larger group or community. So come more often, visit with some old friends and make some new ones. You’ll be glad you did.
Transformation: Last,but not least, I’ve seen people practice yoga for years going to class once a week with little or no changes physically, mentally, or spiritually. On the flip side, I’ve seen others completely transform their life from the discipline of a frequent regular yoga practice. In fact, as Ashtanga Guru Pattabhi Jois famously said, “Yoga is 99% practice, 1% theory. “
Having an unlimited yoga pass helps to create discipline and commitment to your practice. Start today and begin to challenge your limits. Do what you love. if you love doing yoga, go unlimited. You will see the fruits of your practice start to multiply and have less stress and more bliss!
