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.
If you need help deciding how to get started at our studio, please email us.
While our classes may be an investment of time, energy, and money, we do our best to provide options that make yoga accessible, while appropriately valuing the environment we cultivate and the professional instructors who teach here. We are confident that once you attend classes with us, you will feel the investment you made is worth it.
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. Our instructors have greater than the typical 200 hours of certification training, not to mention their ongoing studies and years of teaching!
A basic principle of mindfulness practice is developing loving kindness – or metta – toward ourselves and everyone else. This fosters a non-competitive environment. While everyone may deal with the pitfalls of comparing themselves to others from time to time, a benefit of the studio environment is that most people here are approaching the practice with a mindset shift, not just as an exercise program.
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 one flavor! If you aren’t sure how to choose the right class, you can always email us for guidance. Sampling different classes can be part of the fun!
We respectfully disagree with this common statement about yoga. 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 calmness… you get our drift!
