FAQ

I am new to yoga, what should I expect?

In a word – transformation. Yoga is an ancient practice. It is made up of many components, including physical postures, breathing, meditation, mantra and service to the community. You may love the practice from your first class, or develop an affection along the way as you meet different teachers and engage in different classes. As you establish your practice, your body will change, your responses to other people and situations will take a different turn, and an awareness of your true nature will emerge. Please practice silence in the practice space. Silence is an opportunity to listen. Most of all enjoy your journey. We look forward to being a part of it.

But I’m not flexible, how can I do yoga?

Ahhhh! We are so glad you asked. The physical aspect of Yoga is one component of a much larger system of transformation and self development. As with anything new, pacing yourself, practicing regularly and with kindness will set you up for a renewed relationship with your body and with yourself. You will notice changes including increased flexibility, balance, focus and connectedness.

What should I bring to class?

A mat and water bottle are a good starting point. If you forget, we have extras for you to borrow. Our hope is you bring your curiosity, your friends, family and suggestions to make your practice space your home away from home.

Can I eat before class?

A light meal a few hours before class is perfectly fine.

How often should I practice?

Yoga is one of the oldest healing systems in the world. In the world of complimentary medicine, consistency is the key to success. A practice of 2-3 days per week, will create transformation over time. For life-changing results practice 4-6 days per week. Each Yoga, Dance and Martial Arts class offered will deepen your practice and your understanding of what Yoga can offer to your health and peace of mind.

I am pregnant, can i still practice Yoga?

You already know intuitively that movement is good for you and your growing baby during pregnancy. Before you start, it’s a good idea to check with your physician and during the practice to listen to your own body. A number of our classes are designed to provide modification to enhance your practice and ensure your safety. Practicing Yoga in a regular temperature room with a skilled teacher offers a mindful and joyful way for you to connect to your body and your baby both during and after pregnancy.
