Wear comfortable clothing that will let you move, reach high and low but that is not too baggy so it gets in your way. Wear shorts, sweats, yoga pants – whatever works for you. You might want a layer for the beginning and end of class. Our classes are room temperature and comfortable.
Start with 2 or 3 times a week – try out both basic and level one classes so you get a feel for the foundation and the progression of classes as well as the pace. Try different teachers – while we strive for consistency among levels, as we all know, every teacher is unique.
Bring your own yoga mat if you have one. Mats are also available for sale in the studio. We also offer complimentary mats.
Blankets, blocks and other props are provided by us.
If you would like, bring water and a small towel if you tend to sweat a lot or to wipe down your mat.
Bring an open mind – we will talk about noticing the breath and how to use it to build awareness and bring stillness.
We teach the poses from an alignment basis and each class by level will have some form of flow to get you moving with your breath as a guide.
Leave your shoes at the door and your cell phones and belongings in one of our lockers.
We have one shower (3 bathrooms) but you will need to bring your own towel.
Try not to have eaten a large meal before class, like most exercise, it doesn’t feel great to work out while full.
Have fun! Ask questions! Come back again and again for the journey that is yoga.
