It takes about 6 weeks of once or twice weekly classes for the body and mind to settle into the literal and physical language of Hatha Yoga. After six weeks a yoga beginner will feel a greater mastery over their practice; the mind will stop reasoning and the body will feel and act by its own intelligence. When this occurs the mind is then given the space to engage in present moment awareness; the foundation of living fulfilment.
