I'M A BEGINNER. IS THIS FOR ALL LEVELS AND ABILITIES?
Yes. Modifications and advancements are offered in classes. If you are new, give yourself time, it will take a few classes to get your groove and fully follow along, and that's fine. Every body is at different stages and the Well Trained instructors understand this. They are here to help and to challenge you. See the potential in you and give you every class to always improve on your self and your practice. Every class you will gain something new. Try all the classes and find your favourite. There are many benefits from each class and it is good to have variety in your practice.
Demos are given in all classes except the Hot Bikram 60 and 90 where the instructor cues verbally and this class is without music. You can follow with the regular practitioners and give yourself time, enjoy the journey.
You can discuss with the qualified instructors before and after class if you have questions or feedback, and inform us of any injuries. You can also email Lou with any questions you may have and feedback.
