Ever been to a yoga class and felt intimidated by other people there? Do you struggle to find your yoga confidence?
In the latest episode of the In The Moment Magazine podcast, Sarah Orme and Katharine Bennett chat to Charlene Lim of Trika Yoga to learn how to find your yoga mojo and how to cope with the issue of competitiveness in yoga classes.
Charlene says: “Everyone comes to yoga not trying to be competitive, but it’s quite interesting that the more people practise yoga and the more used to they get competitiveness does start to creep in, particularly with the dynamic classes.
She sometimes has to remind people in her classes to calm down and make them aware that yoga isn’t like other sports.
