Many yoga studios do trial classes that are cheaper than their normal rate. Google some near where you live and find out more. Community centres are also a good place for affordable classes if there's one near you that conducts yoga classes.

Try Nikam Guruji Yoga Kutir's 12-week basic course. The course is available at various locations all over the island. It’s free of charge, although at certain centres a $5 to $10 charge will be levied upon registration. The course schedule is on their website (http://www.yoganikam.org/basic-course.php).

Classes are designed to equip participants with the skills needed to practise yoga on their own, so a lot of emphasis will be placed on checking that the various exercises are done correctly, and at the end of each class students split into small groups to have their exercises checked by an instructor. You need to bring your own yoga mat and other essentials such as water bottle and towel to class.

No problem, these classes are much better than those overpriced classes offered at profit making yoga studios.

Yeah! These studios are more about looking cool and being in the right “crowd”

Looking cool as in wearing lululemon yoga apparel and holding manduka yoga mats? 😆

If anyone is attending the free yoga classes, please note they do have a dress code. No spaghetti strap or sleeveless shirt or shorts. Round neck or polo short sleeve t-shirt and long pants are recommended.

For an absolute beginner, it’s not advisable to attempt yoga on your own even with YouTube or online tutorials, unless you have an experienced yogi at home to check and correct your form and posture.

But usually when I go to classes the instructor would rarely come around and check participants poses/posture.... I noticed in San Fran the instructors were more hands on - in fact participants must state if do not want to be adjusted by wearing special tag!

I think the class size is either too big or the instructor can’t be bothered to check. Those participants don’t like to be touched I guess. In this case, the instructor should just observe and give verbal feedback for them to correct the posture on their own.
