How to Be Confident in Your First Yoga Class. 1. Line your mat up with a neighbor’s. If you literally have no idea where to place your yoga mat in the studio, you’re definitely not stupid 2. Avoid pre-class perfume. Even if you love it, skip your favorite scented spritz that day. “Since yoga.
Your self-confidence should walk the line between pride and bluster. You want to exude professional humility. Let your class know that you are there to serve.

Although yoga is meant to be a non-judgemental practice (toward ourselves or others), going to that very first yoga class can still feel intimidating.
It’s normal to judge ourselves and worry about how we’ll compare to other students. However, it’s totally unnecessary. To boost self-confidence and overcome fear of newness, we answer the most common new student questions, so that you feel.

Sit on your mat and either take a few stretches or just come to stillness. Try to turn off your mind and just listen. Listen to the teacher and try to follow their cues and tips. Don’t think, just try. One Step at a Time.
Many poses offer multiple variations but don’t feel like you need to do the maximum your first time. Yoga is about doing poses properly to benefit your body. Another important thing to address about your first yoga class is feeling self-conscious.
