During a yoga class , you can expect a mix of verbal instruction, demonstration, hands-on assistance and occasional partner work to help you learn the basics as well as refine your understanding and performance of the yoga postures. This helps you to get the full benefits of yoga practice.

Our Instructors are readily available during class to assist each individual as the entire class progresses together. They will offer individualized suggestions and instructions as well as hands-on assistance. You are always free to decline any assistance – just let your teacher know if you would prefer not to be touched.

Classes offered are on an ongoing basis which means that you can start classes anytime and progress to other ability levels as you become more confident in your practice. Don’t worry if you are new; there are always new people coming in to class and we’ll make sure you feel comfortable.

Here are some useful pointers and tips whether your are deciding to come for the first time or hundredth time.

  1. Bring a yoga mat, towel and water. We offer mats at no cost, but I highly recommend your own.
  2. Refrain from eating large meals 2 hours before class; keep hydrated ( water) before and after class.
  3. Each student has their own strengths and weaknesses, so yoga is about working in harmony with both no matter what level you are. All of our students are still practicing,and so am I.
  4. Please arrive on time, and please turn cell phones off.
