What do I need to bring to class? A yoga mat, water and a towel
What do I wear to class? Wear something you like to workout in. We recommend leggings, a sports bra and a tank top for women, and shorts for men. There are no shoes or socks required.
I'm new to yoga, what class should I take? There are many different styles of yoga, which class to take depends on what you are looking to get out of yoga. Read the class descriptions carefully and give us a call if you have any questions. Even though most of our classes are open level, if you are brand new to yoga, taking a beginners or level 1 class is highly recommended. This will help affiliate you with the names of the poses, but just like many things, you will continue to learn as you go.
What if I'm not flexible? Flexibility is something yoga gives you; you don't have to be flexible to start practicing yoga. Sitting in place for long periods of time, or engaging in constant repetitive motions, causes your muscles to shorten. In these yoga classes, we will cycle though a variety of different motions allowing your muscles to lengthen and stretch.
What are the benefits of yoga? There are countless benefits to yoga including stress reduction, increased blood circulation, flexibility, strength, improved sleep patterns and relaxation. A regular practice of yoga (at least 3 times a week) can reduce the symptoms of many chronic diseases (i.e. arthritis, diabetes, and thyroid disorders).
