Learning Yoga: Take classes or teach myself from internet?

 mr. Frybeard (@highjacob)7 years, 8 months ago

The title basically says it all, im just wondering if a class is more beneficial because the teacher can see where you need improvement and correct you whereas if you teach yourself you dont know if youre performing the exercise right or not. I’m wanting to start practicing yoga and im not sure where to start.

Thanks

I’ve been doing yoga for a year now.

I would advise classes, or at least some mode of tuition. The teacher I have is very good (and cute too, but that’s a tangent here haha..) and she provides good tuitition and explanation of asanas.

It may be best to get a referral from somebody you know, but this link explains it well:

The teacher I have now meets of all my needs per the points.
