If you’ve never tried yoga before, we recommend starting with our Beginner’s Yoga classes so you can learn the basics of yoga. See more details below!

Beginner’s Yoga Classes

This class is designed to introduce Yoga to those with limited or no experience. If you’re a beginner in Yoga or haven’t practiced in awhile, start here!

Learn the basics of Vinyasa Yoga including postures, breath work, meditation and relaxation. The focus will be on developing a practice that suits your individual needs as well as allows you to be comfortable in a group setting.

Class will progress in a structured format in 6 week cycles and each class will build upon the one previous. We encourage you to try to attend classes in order but understand that life requires flexibility. If you need to miss a class, your 10 class punch card will allow you to view the class at your convenience in our On Demand Library.

Morning Movement & Meditation

In Morning Movement & Meditation, we honor your need to rise & shine with ease, but promise to leave you energized & focused for your day ahead! Class begins with 5-min of pranayama (breathwork), gently guiding you into a yoga sequence grounded in vinyasa & hatha traditions that builds with intensity as we wake-up together. Practice culminates with an intentional 10-min meditation reflecting our breathwork & movement. Sometimes gentle, other times vigorous, but always a great way to start your day!

Evening Movement & Meditation

This slower paced evening class is designed to allow you to surrender the burdens your mind and body have experienced during the day and leave you calm and relaxed and ready for sleep.

The quality of surrender is designed to relinquish effort and allow feeling back in. Often we grip so tightly onto things in our lives to gain a sense of control and comfort as we embrace the unknown. In this practice, we invite you to explore vulnerability, leave behind all attachments, and let yourself be just as you are. You will be guided through a soothing exploration of the body, mind, and spirit’s current state through yoga postures and meditation.

Various yoga props are used to support our postures so total relaxation can be obtained and specific areas will be targeted for deep stretch and massage. Breath work and mindfulness techniques are explored to round out the experience of release. You will leave feeling completely Blissed Out! This class is appropriate for all levels, even those without any yoga experience.

frequently asked questions

  • Bring a Yoga mat if you have one and if you don’t we have some at the studio!
  • Bring a water bottle if you like to rehydrate during movement.
  • Wear clothing that allows you to move freely. Your clothing should not be so loose that it pulls away from the body went bent over, but not so tight you can’t breath and move freely.
  • Be prepared to move and also be prepared to have moments of stillness.

If it’s your first class, we recommend 10-15 minutes prior to class start. This will allow the instructor to help get you set up and show you the studio. If you’re a regular practitioner we recommend 5-10 minutes prior to class start time so you can get centered and comfortable.

Please note, we are unable to accommodate late entry to class and the entrance doors will be locked for the safety of our students and their belongings. Doors will re-open 15 minutes prior to the next scheduled class.

We happily accept walk ins. You do not need to pre-register for class, however in classes that are full, pre-registration guarantees your spot over a walk-in.

Please consult your physician and have them clear you for yoga before attending class. After you have consulted your physician, please let your instructor know of any conditions prior to class so she/he can be aware of the condition as well as offer options for you to feel successful and safe in class.

We strongly encourage you to leave your cell phone in your car or in our storage cubbies so there is no distraction. Cell phones aren’t allowed in the practice area during class to offer respect to all participants. The instructor will lock the front door to the studio so that all possessions are secure.

We encourage you to stay for a full class, however, if you need to leave a few minutes early, please let your instructor know so she or he knows you are ok. Then quietly gather your things and exit with as little distraction as possible. We also ask, that you leave prior to the entire close moving into final relaxation to minimize the disruption.
