What to Expect
Yoga sessions are a series of poses designed to strengthen, tone, and align the body, and generally last for an hour. You will be performing poses that rely on strength, balance, and flexibility, which means that men will naturally be better at some (strength) and women others (flexibility). The nice thing for beginners is that yoga is a very accepting, go-at-your-own-pace type of activity. Even though you’ll feel awkward during some of the poses, just do what you can and try to have a good time.
Afterwards, it feels good to relax in a dry sauna or jacuzzi if you take a class at one of the big gyms. Make sure to drink lots of water. Light meals also taste great post-yoga (think salad and spring water).
An alternative to yoga is something called "hot yoga" which is basically just yoga in a really hot room (like 90+ degrees). The purpose is to get students sweating like crazy to rid themselves of impurities. This may not be the best for beginners but it's a must-try if you decide to continue with yoga.
Most gyms have classes, but it might be more fun to find an instructor who gives classes in a park or at the beach. Check around.
