I’m not flexible, can I still do Yoga?
Yoga is designed for everyone, flexible or not. You set your pace. Should a pose become uncomfortable or painful, our teachers are equipped to provide modifications to relieve any kind of discomfort. Yoga will help you become more flexible- the more you work on it, the easier it will become.
How is Yoga different from stretching?
When we stretch, whether it’s before a workout or getting out of bed, we tend to do so absentmindedly. However, practicing yoga is all about being aware of the present moment. Our instructors will guide your movements in coordination with breath, so with every inhale and exhale, you will be able to explore your body’s needs and dig deeper into your stretch. Not to forget, yoga also incorporates alignment, strength, and balance; all types of fitness that help us to become more rounded and grounded beings.
What should I wear?
Your comfort is priority. We suggest stretchy clothing, but nothing too loose fitting that will get in the way of perfecting your poses.
What should I bring?
We provide yoga mats, straps, blankets, and bolsters for you to use, however you are always welcome to bring your own. Please bring your own water bottle and an open mind!
How often should I practice Yoga?
Everyone benefits from yoga at different levels. For many, yoga is a daily practice, however we suggest setting a realistic goal for yourself and working towards it. We recommend 2-3 classes per week as a great goal for those just starting in yoga. Remaining consistent and dedicated to a class schedule will help keep you on track. The more you practice, the faster you will progress and the better you will feel.
