New students can “drop-in” to a class whenever they are ready to begin yoga. It is best to start with a Level 1 or Level 1-2 class if you have never done yoga before, so you can get acquainted with the basics. Be sure to wear loose clothing and come a little early to meet the instructor and fill out a new-student form. All props are provided, but if you have your own yoga mat, bring it.
Class is taught as a sequence of poses, gradually building in intensity. The beginning and end are important components of the class. Please be on time. If you must leave early, allow yourself a few minutes of relaxation before you go.
Questions during class are welcome.
Avoid wearing perfume, cologne, strongly scented cosmetics, lotions and hair products out of respect for your fellow students.
Special Needs: Please inform your instructor of any injuries or chronic illness (this includes injuries past or present and/or medical problems such as high blood pressure or heart conditions). Some poses could be harmful under these conditions, but can be modified.
Menstrual Period: During menstruation, avoid inversions and strenuous poses. We will be happy to show you appropriate alternate poses.
Yoga is Joyful! Be light and have fun.
