Frequently Asked Questions

Introduction

Yoga is a type of physical exercise that has been practiced for over 5,000 years. It originated in southeast Asia and was first practiced as a way for individuals to bring balance to mind, body, and spirit. Yoga has long been associated with spirituality, and many instructors close out classes with guided meditations.

Today's yoga differs from its early beginnings, as instructors incorporate more physical exercise to help students get in shape and lose weight. Power yoga is one example of a newer type of yoga meant for physical fitness. Types of yoga include Hatha, a relaxing practice, Kundalini, a practice designed to ignite internal energy, and Vinyasa, which utilizes multiple poses.

What is yoga?

Yoga is a physical practice that's deeply established in Indian culture and philosophy. The practice consists of physical poses and breathing techniques designed to bring the mind and body together, promote relaxation, and strengthen the muscles. In today's world, many people practice yoga for both relaxation and physical fitness.

What does yoga mean?

The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit root yuj, which translates to unite or yoke. This means to bring the mind, body, and spirit together. People have practiced yoga for thousands of years. The main objective of the practice is to promote inner peace and balance, and many practitioners utilize yoga to get in shape both physically and mentally.

Where did yoga originate?

Yoga originated in the northwestern regions of Southeast Asia over 5,000 years ago. Soapstone seals and fossil remains found by researchers featured yogic symbols and were believed to be related to the Indus Saraswati valley civilization. Gurus taught yoga and focused on its spiritual rituals, with poses such as the Sun Salute, in which practitioners honor the sun.

What is the difference between yoga and Pilates?

While yoga and Pilates are both a type of low-impact exercise, the practice of yoga is based on spiritual and meditative principles, and Pilates is more focused on engaging and strengthening the body's core. Pilates does incorporate some yoga techniques, including deep breathing and stretching.

What is goat yoga?

Goat yoga is a form of yoga in which students and practitioners perform common poses while goats roam around. Goats sometimes stand on students' backs and stomachs during poses, such as plank and child's pose. The practice was invented on a farm in Oregon, and the goats offer a calming presence during class.

Is yoga good for you?

Yoga offers a wide range of benefits, including increased relaxation, a mind and body connection, and strengthened muscles. Many students experience strong feelings of inner peace during poses and meditations at the end of each session, and yoga can also aid in weight loss and pain reduction.

Does yoga help you lose weight?

Yoga helps people lose weight by lowering cortisol levels in the body. Cortisol is a stress hormone that's linked to weight gain in the abdominal area. Yoga also promotes mindfulness, which helps students and practitioners focus on healthier eating habits. Additionally, yoga helps strengthen muscles, which in turn can lead to a leaner figure.

Is yoga a good workout?

Yoga classes offer a good workout by toning the muscles throughout the body, similar to weight training. Students are required to hold yoga poses for extended lengths of time, which helps increase muscle endurance. Vinyasa yoga raises the heart rate, which improves calorie burn.

What does yoga help with?

Yoga helps promote relaxation and reduce stress, and it helps tone and elongate muscles. Holding yoga poses for extended amounts of time helps students achieve balance throughout the body, and different poses can help ease muscle tension by gently stretching the muscles. Deep breathing in yoga helps increase blood flow, and inverted poses improve blood flow to the extremities.

What does yoga do for your body?

Yoga is a beneficial practice that helps the body in many ways. Deep breathing techniques utilized during poses help people become balanced and focused, while stretches help soothe muscles and release tension. Poses, such as Downward Dog and Warrior, elongate and strengthen the arm and leg muscles, and meditation at the end of practice helps promote restful sleep.

How to do yoga?

To perform a Forward Fold pose, students first stand up straight and then bend down towards the floor using the hips and waist. Downward Dog pose starts with a forward fold, followed by walking the arms further away from the shoulders until the arms and legs are at opposite angles. Corpse pose consists of lying flat on the back with arms at the sides.

What should I wear to yoga?

When attending a yoga class, it's always a good idea to wear comfortable, breathable clothes. Many sporting goods stores sell workout gear specifically designed for yoga, including pants, tops, and yoga socks that easily grip bare flooring. Some students also prefer to go barefoot during yoga class.

What should I wear to hot yoga?

Indoor temperatures during a hot yoga class can range between 80 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit, so it's important to wear breathable clothing. T-shirts over tank tops are also a good idea, as layers can be removed as the body warms up.

How do you clean a yoga mat?

Yoga mats should be cleaned by hand with mild soap and warm water, then thoroughly rinsed to prevent soap residue buildup. Another option is to submerge the mat in warm, soapy water. Once dried, you can also spray the yoga mat with disinfectant spray to freshen it up and eliminate potential lingering germs and bacteria.

How much do yoga instructors make?

The pay rate for yoga instructors varies greatly depending on the type of yoga classes being taught, experience levels, and price points dictated by yoga practitioners. In general, a yoga teacher's salary at a yoga studio ranges between $31 and $35 per hour.

How does someone become a yoga instructor?

To become a yoga instructor, one must first complete a yoga teacher training course or YTTC. There are several course programs ranging from 200 to 500 total hours. Once certified, yoga instructors can train students as independent contractors, work in gyms, and open their own yoga studios. Since there are several types of yoga, instructors can build their skill sets with continuing education courses.
