Friendship is one of the sweetest relationships between humans. A friend plays many roles in our lives. He or she can be a helper, a role model, a listener, an adviser and much more that could not be defined in words but can be felt by the people who are sharing it. A friend is not just a companion in hard times but also a partner in our stupidities and funny times. We can make friends every where we go. Even if you go to a simple yoga class you can make good friends. Rather than sitting aloof and boring yourself, just extend a friendly hand to your co-learners. This will make your yoga class more interesting and also you will get to know new people and will learn more about life from their experiences.
Here are few simple tips that will help you to make new friends at your yoga class:
Be Regular- First of all make it a point to consistently attend your yoga class. Attending yoga class regularly will help you to remember and recognize your co-learners and in-turn they will also start recognizing you.
Use Friendly Gestures- If anybody looks at you during or after the sessions, offer a friendly gesture a smile or a hand wave to the person. This will also encourage the other person to take a step ahead.
Always Say Hello to Your Neighbor- Make it a point to greet your neighbor before or after the session. Practicing this regularly will help you to start a conversation with new people.
Offer Help- In case anybody is facing any problem during the session you can offer help to your co-learner. This will help you to gain a friend.
Practice With other students- Rather than practicing alone, make a plan to practice with your fellow students. This extra session spent together will help you and the other person to start a good friendship.
Offer a Lift – If any of your classmates is traveling from same area as you, offer them a ride, or plan to travel together. This friendly gesture would help you to spend more time with the person.
We really hope that you can make good use of yoga classes to maintain your health and also make lovely friends to enjoy your life.
