We were all beginners once and we know choosing your first class can be intimidating. Let us help you find the right teacher and class for you, so that your experience practicing yoga will meet your needs.
Why a yoga studio is the perfect place to begin….
Myth #5: I can’t afford yoga at a studio…
While our classes may be an investment of time, energy and monetary resources, we do our best to provide options
that make yoga accessible. Since we opened in 2008, we have offered “Karma”
classes – meaning pay what you can. And we mean that. 6 days a week, you have a choice from a variety of times and styles of classes that are Karma. Check out the schedule to see your options.
Myth #4: I don’t know the poses….
If you have little to no yoga experience, you’re in a great position to practice in a professional yoga studio, because you get to build a practice from the ground up with teachers who really
know yoga. Most of our instructors
have greater than 200 hours of certification training (not to mention ongoing studies and years of teaching!)
Myth #3: Everyone will be better at it than me…
A basic principle of mindfulness practice is developing loving kindness – or metta – toward ourselves and everyone else. This fosters a noncompetitive environment, where you can show up just as you are, and expect to feel welcomed. While everyone may deal with the pitfalls of comparing themselves to others from time to time, a benefit of the studio environment is most people here are approaching the practice as a lifestyle, not just an exercise program.
Myth #2: I won’t get a workout…
For those seeking a workout – we’ve got classes for that. For those seeking soothing practices – we’ve got classes for that, too. It wouldn’t make sense for a business that has primarily one type of activity – in our case, yoga – to offer only one style of class. It would be like an ice cream parlor serving only vanilla flavor! If you aren’t sure how to choose the right class, you can always call the studio and talk to our staff. Sampling different classes can be part of the fun!
Myth #1: I am too inflexible to practice yoga…
Perhaps the most common statement about yoga, though we respectfully disagree. We’ve heard it said that saying you’re too inflexible/old/anxious/weak/etc. to do yoga is like saying you’re too dirty to take a bath. Through yoga, the inflexible may find suppleness, the old may find invigoration, the anxious may find calm… you get our drift!
We welcome you to our studio, and look forward to helping you discover your inner Glow.
