WHICH YOGA CLASS IS BEST FOR ME: BEGINNERS OR GENERAL?

Although all our Yoga classes are open to beginners, if you have no previous
Yoga experience you may prefer to start in one of our Beginners Classes.

BEGINNERS YOGA CLASSES

  • Designed for those without any Yoga experience.

  • Small classes

  • Introduces basic postures with instructions for focusing attention and
    combining breath & movement. Guides you through deep relaxation practice.

  • Also a good place to start if you need to review the basics.

    GENERAL YOGA CLASSES

  • Mixed-level; beginners & continuing students are welcome.

  • Small classes

  • Some previous experience is helpful, though not required.

  • Presents Ayurvedic concepts for health & self-understanding.

  • Trains you to maintain calm awareness during your Yoga class that can expand
    into your daily life.


    WHAT CAN BEGINNING STUDENTS EXPECT TO GAIN FROM CLASS?

    The following quotes are what new students have said about their experience
    in our Beginners Yoga classes:

    "The class helped me with increased flexibility and muscle tone, better
    balance, less pain in my back."

    "I feel like I have a new 'tool' to calm myself and cope with stresses of
    the day. Thanks."

    "There is a very nice atmosphere in the building which is pleasant to
    experience. I enjoyed the opportunity to get to know the instructor and other
    participants more closely than in a larger class."

    "I am learning how to keep my back healthy, increased concentration and
    confidence."

    "I gained an understanding of basic poses and my capability to execute
    them. The small group method was very useful."

    "The stretching felt very good. Have been having some hip problems and this
    seemed to help. Loved the relaxation part!"

    "I became more relaxed generally and gained mental clarity."


    WOULD I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT AND BE FLEXIBLE BEFORE TRYING YOGA?

    No. People of all shapes and sizes benefit from, and enjoy Yoga practice, and are welcome to participate in our classes. Over time, your level of flexibility will improve, so "come as you are!"
