and Melanie wellness I want to talk to

3
00:00:06,330 –> 00:00:08,069
you today about yoga etiquette

4
00:00:08,069 –> 00:00:11,160
specifically for men so men always have

5
00:00:11,160 –> 00:00:13,320
a lot of questions when they come to

6
00:00:13,320 –> 00:00:17,130
yoga number one guys the hardest part

7
00:00:17,130 –> 00:00:19,740
about yoga is getting to your first

8
00:00:19,740 –> 00:00:22,920
class so just go show up walk through

9
00:00:22,920 –> 00:00:25,099
the doors you’re going to be just fine

10
00:00:25,099 –> 00:00:28,050
didn’t the first question I usually have

11
00:00:28,050 –> 00:00:32,308
is what do I wear guys typically don’t

12
00:00:32,308 –> 00:00:34,649
like to show up in tight black stretch

13
00:00:34,649 –> 00:00:36,719
pants which you can wear that it’s fine

14
00:00:36,719 –> 00:00:39,570
some guys do most guys if you’re taking

15
00:00:39,570 –> 00:00:42,960
a vinyasa class will wear board shorts

16
00:00:42,960 –> 00:00:45,989
swim trunks absolutely fine to show off

17
00:00:45,989 –> 00:00:48,270
in your swim trunks there’s a lot of

18
00:00:48,270 –> 00:00:51,000
men’s yoga shorts out there essentially

19
00:00:51,000 –> 00:00:53,489
they’re gym shorts that are cut a little

20
00:00:53,489 –> 00:00:56,129
slimmer around the thighs so that

21
00:00:56,129 –> 00:00:58,949
they’re not going to let it all hang out

22
00:00:58,949 –> 00:01:00,780
if you know what I mean when you get

23
00:01:00,780 –> 00:01:02,910
your legs straight up in the air so you

24
00:01:02,910 –> 00:01:05,400
can go and spend money on yoga shorts or

25
00:01:05,400 –> 00:01:07,979
you can just wear what you would wear to

26
00:01:07,979 –> 00:01:10,170
go surfing it that’ll totally work I’m

27
00:01:10,170 –> 00:01:12,869
shirt on shirt off different Studios

28
00:01:12,869 –> 00:01:15,270
have different etiquette at Tri Power

29
00:01:15,270 –> 00:01:17,340
Yoga we’re absolutely fine if you want

30
00:01:17,340 –> 00:01:18,210
to take your shirt off

31
00:01:18,210 –> 00:01:20,820
you’re gonna sweat so that’s the next

32
00:01:20,820 –> 00:01:22,590
thing a lot of guys are embarrassed

33
00:01:22,590 –> 00:01:24,869
they’re like oh I sweat so much I sweat

34
00:01:24,869 –> 00:01:27,000
all over my map that’s the point

35
00:01:27,000 –> 00:01:28,650
gentlemen you’re trying to sweat out

36
00:01:28,650 –> 00:01:30,900
toxins so whether you’re taking a hockey

37
00:01:30,900 –> 00:01:32,790
ouka class or not you’re probably going

38
00:01:32,790 –> 00:01:34,470
to sweat if it’s a challenging workout

39
00:01:34,470 –> 00:01:38,159
so get a yoga towel invest in the

40
00:01:38,159 –> 00:01:40,710
non-slip towel that’s the same size as

41
00:01:40,710 –> 00:01:43,020
your yoga mat there’s a lot of good ones

42
00:01:43,020 –> 00:01:45,899
out there or if it’s your first time to

43
00:01:45,899 –> 00:01:47,700
show up with a beach towel plenty of

44
00:01:47,700 –> 00:01:49,140
people do it you’re not going to look

45
00:01:49,140 –> 00:01:50,729
like weird because you don’t have the

46
00:01:50,729 –> 00:01:52,890
right equipment or whatever there’s a

47
00:01:52,890 –> 00:01:54,600
pretty nice long towel that will cover

48
00:01:54,600 –> 00:01:56,759
your mat but what you want to look for

49
00:01:56,759 –> 00:01:58,680
is a spray bottle every studio is going

50
00:01:58,680 –> 00:02:01,170
to have one and if they don’t then use

51
00:02:01,170 –> 00:02:03,090
your own water bottle and just sprinkle

52
00:02:03,090 –> 00:02:05,369
water over where your hands go for

53
00:02:05,369 –> 00:02:06,299
downward-facing dog

54
00:02:06,299 –> 00:02:08,008
and where your feet go for

55
00:02:08,008 –> 00:02:09,899
downward-facing dog if you get it a

56
00:02:09,899 –> 00:02:11,400
little bit wet to begin with

57
00:02:11,400 –> 00:02:12,330
that’s going to prevent you from

58
00:02:12,330 –> 00:02:13,980
slipping okay

59
00:02:13,980 –> 00:02:16,890
next thing is where do I set up in the

60
00:02:16,890 –> 00:02:18,720
class all right if you’re just starting

61
00:02:18,720 –> 00:02:21,030
yoga and you’re newer to yoga you want

62
00:02:21,030 –> 00:02:22,650
to go right in the middle of the room so

63
00:02:22,650 –> 00:02:24,569
if there’s a middle row perfect if not

64
00:02:24,569 –> 00:02:26,879
take the back row and go in the middle

65
00:02:26,879 –> 00:02:29,220
so you can look to the left you can look

66
00:02:29,220 –> 00:02:31,260
to the right and you can look forward

67
00:02:31,260 –> 00:02:33,480
and you always see someone in front of

68
00:02:33,480 –> 00:02:37,049
you doing the poses all right besides

69
00:02:37,049 –> 00:02:40,079
that guys show up bring a bottle of

70
00:02:40,079 –> 00:02:42,690
water if you have a map bring it bring a

71
00:02:42,690 –> 00:02:45,810
big beach towel bring a small hand towel

72
00:02:45,810 –> 00:02:47,910
for wiping your sweat and wiping your

73
00:02:47,910 –> 00:02:52,200
hands um wear your board shorts always

74
00:02:52,200 –> 00:02:55,890
arrive early all right this is the thing

75
00:02:55,890 –> 00:02:58,010
yoga studios are going to lock the door

76
00:02:58,010 –> 00:03:00,840
right when class starts so you’re going

77
00:03:00,840 –> 00:03:02,670
to have to fill out some paperwork sign

78
00:03:02,670 –> 00:03:06,840
a waiver be minimum minimum of ten

79
00:03:06,840 –> 00:03:10,230
minutes early to your first class okay

80
00:03:10,230 –> 00:03:12,810
now the other thing that people are

81
00:03:12,810 –> 00:03:15,000
always asking me about it’s like what if

82
00:03:15,000 –> 00:03:18,150
I do the poses wrong or I’m not stretchy

83
00:03:18,150 –> 00:03:22,650
you guys the most advanced variation of

84
00:03:22,650 –> 00:03:25,470
every posture is the variation that

85
00:03:25,470 –> 00:03:30,299
brings you the most benefit so even if

86
00:03:30,299 –> 00:03:32,459
you’re not like stretching all the way

87
00:03:32,459 –> 00:03:35,340
to your toes that’s okay you’re advanced

88
00:03:35,340 –> 00:03:37,829
because you’re doing what you can do the

89
00:03:37,829 –> 00:03:39,030
last thing I want to talk to you about

90
00:03:39,030 –> 00:03:42,180
is talking during class so don’t be the

91
00:03:42,180 –> 00:03:45,810
class clown don’t crack jokes shut up

92
00:03:45,810 –> 00:03:49,799
and do the poses just breathe try and

93
00:03:49,799 –> 00:03:52,829
follow along if you have a question it’s

94
00:03:52,829 –> 00:03:56,220
always okay to quietly raise your hand

95
00:03:56,220 –> 00:03:59,129
or flag the teacher down or quietly ask

96
00:03:59,129 –> 00:04:02,280
your question but do your best to not

97
00:04:02,280 –> 00:04:05,549
crack jokes to not say something funny

98
00:04:05,549 –> 00:04:09,900
just be quiet and be there to learn all

99
00:04:09,900 –> 00:04:12,989
right the last thing is noises so it’s

100
00:04:12,989 –> 00:04:16,849
perfectly fine to breathe louder

101
00:04:18,220 –> 00:04:21,829
but try to avoid editing is not the Jim

102
00:04:21,829 –> 00:04:24,230
Brown lifting heavy weights of course

103
00:04:24,230 –> 00:04:26,150
once in a while a noise is going to

104
00:04:26,150 –> 00:04:28,640
escape you oh well

105
00:04:28,640 –> 00:04:31,850
no big deal but try not to be that big

106
00:04:31,850 –> 00:04:34,670
