What You Should Know

Our Classes

  • Every class is open to new students. You can drop in to any of our scheduled classes – 7 days a week!
  • The same poses (asanas) are taught in each class, so every class is open to beginners – and provides a challenge for long-term students.
  • Each class will have a mix of students at every level of experience and proficiency.
  • Arrive 15 minutes early for your first class, and make sure you can stay at least a few minutes afterward to cool down & relax!

How to Prepare For Class

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day as you prepare for your first class (and afterwards, to flush out toxins the yoga has helped your body release).
  • Don’t eat a large meal 3-4 hours prior to class. However, many folks find they need to eat something prior to class – try something light no more than 45 minutes prior to class, especially if you have low blood sugar.

What to Bring With You

  • Your sense of humor and self-compassion! For many, it takes a while to feel fully competent in the postures. Just know everyone else in the room remembers what it feels like to be new at this.
  • For your first visit, please arrive 15 minutes early to register and get ready for class.
  • Bring a large towel (or two), a bottle of water, and a yoga mat if you have one. We have showers available for use with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. It's also nice to have dry clothes to change into afterwards.
  • We rent towels and mats for 1 dollar. We also sell mats, water, and sports drinks.

What You Should Wear

  • It’s hot in here! Wear as little as you are comfortable with. Most folks choose cycling or aerobic shorts, yoga tights, a tank top, or a sports bra.
  • Try to avoid cotton and loose fitting clothing as it will chafe and cling to your body when you begin sweating – and you will sweat!

Benefits

  • The series is designed to deliver maximum strengthening and healing for beginners.
  • If you work at the maximum for your body, you will receive 100% of the benefits needed by your body!
  • Don’t feel as if you have to do everything the first day. As long as you try the right way, you will receive all of the benefits of the class.
  • Warm muscles are more supple and allow for deeper stretching with less soreness and a reduced risk of injury.
  • Perspiration + physical exertion = increased heart rate and circulation.
  • Sweating cleans your pores, your skin and pushes out any toxins in your body.
  • This series of poses was designed for what was most needed for our busy lifestyle, to help heal stressed joints and spines.
  • Relieves stress and anxiety, emotional imbalance, and internal toxicity.
  • Reduces digestive problems caused by stress, processed foods, and excess sugar in our diets.
  • Improves posture caused by desk work, too much driving, and stress.
