Our expert says:
Speak to the teacher at the gym to let her know you are a beginner and to get some tips for you to be aware of through the class. You won't embarrass yourself - because everyone will be focussed on having their own experience and in the true nature of yoga which is non-comparative and non-competitive, won't be noticing you. :)
If you prefer, you could research a beginners yoga class at a studio nearby you - the classes may be smaller and more personalised, and beginner focussed.
Yoga is not something you do when you are fit and flexible, it is something that will give you flexibility and fitness over time with patience and humillity, begin the journey and enjoy the process!
