You're mostly welcome! And don't worry - it's really easy to follow the group at the led classes and in Mysore style calsses, you get individall tips from the teacher anyway. If you did not understand something during the class, do not hesitate to ask the teacher after, he'll be happy to clear any of your daubts.
How to choose a yoga class?
If you never practiced yoga before, start with Beginners, Regenaration / Beginners or Happy Spline classes. To make your yoga practice rewarding and safe, it requires good understanding of the basics, such as breathing, drishti, asana, etc., so we recommend you to take part in the at least 8 lessons of Beginners, Regenaration / Beginners or Happy Spline classes at your very beginnig.
If you're beginng to practice after a long break, then we highly recommend taking a few lessons of Beginners, Regenaration / Beginners or Happy Spline classes first.
For all those who like or need to practice more gently, for women during pregnancy and menstruation we recommend Regenaration / Beginners classes.
For all those after at least 8 lessons of Beginners, Regenaration / Beginners or Happy Spline classes and those that have been practicing another yoga style regularly, we recommend Vinyasa classes - dynamic yoga classes.
For all those who have been practicing regularly ashtanga yoga at Yoga Republic or another recognized school of Ashtanga Yoga for at least 2 months, we recommend Ashtanga I, II and III classes.
For both beginners and those who practice regularly we highly recommend Mysore style classes, where you will find the best conditions for individual development at every stage of practice. To Mysore classes you can attend after at least 8 lessons of Beginners.
You don't need to sign in for the classes, however when the class is full the students that signed in have the priority to enter the class. It is recommended to arrive at school approximately 10-15 min. before the led classes. The exception are the Mysore classes, where you can enter at any time, just saving enough time to finish the practice before the end of the class. You can sign in for the classes at Clients Zone, after regestration and loging in.
Moondays: the day of the new moon and the full moon in the tradition of yoga are considered the most appropriate for rest and relaxation. Therefore, in these days the Mysore classes do not take place (the other classes are held unchanged), the current dates of moondays are published on our Facebook page, which is also available for those who do not have a profile on FB: YogaRepublicPL. See the dates of the Moondays.
