New to Yoga

Everyone CAN practice yoga at Bliss Yoga Studio! We believe that yoga is for every body regardless of age, weight, fitness level, or experience. We have multiple classes on the schedule designed to support beginner’s on their journey to beginning a yoga practice!

 

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
Sundays 5:30-6:30pm

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. How to access the On Demand Library will be discussed at the start of the 6 week cycle.

 

Join us today to see how the practice of Yoga can empower you on your journey to connect deeper with your mind, body and soul.

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. Bliss all levels.

Blissed Out (Breathe/Stretch/Relax)

Get ready to relax from the chaos of daily life and find your blissful center. Class is a blend of seated and reclined Restorative and Yin yoga postures with self massage via Therapy Balls. 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. Bliss All Levels.
