Jump in with our New Student Special $49 for one month of unlimited access to 26 classes a week.  Everyone can benefit from a sincere practice of yoga.  Yoga is truly a path to peak health and vibrancy.  We are happy you have found it!  Here are a few tips to get you started.

1. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to meet the teacher and get aquainted with our Eco-Friendly studio.

2. Inform the teacher of any injury or condition you may have so they can guide you appropriately during class.

3. Wear comfortable clothing that breathes and is good for movement and stretching.

4. Stay hydrated by drinking clear fluids; however avoid eating 90 minutes before class.

5. Begin with Level 1-2 or Level 1-3 classes. Master the basic poses first so you create a stable foundation then explore the more challenging poses. The instructor can help you adapt the poses to suite your needs.

6. Remember if you haven’t stretched or engaged certain muscles in years that it will take time for your body to build and open. However, a commited yoga practioner who takes 2-5 classes a week will improve much more quickly than those with irregular practices. Stay connected to your body so you can make wise and compassionate decisions in how far you go in each posture. Your body thanks you.

7. Yoga is not the Olympics- do not compare your pose to that of another student.  Yoga is about turning inside and listening to your own body.

8. Forget “no pain, no gain”, you may feel stretching sensations and the engagement of muscles but no pain.

9. Enjoy the process~ yoga is a colorful  journey.

With these quick tips you have taken your first step toward a powerful and healing yoga practice.
