Thank you for your understanding and support for your fellow yogis and all other humans!

Yes! We were all once beginners. We welcome you as you are, and provide a space that nurtures and supports you on your yoga path.

Yoga is meant to be a daily practice, but we recommend you set a goal that is realistic for you. Consistency is the key. The more you practice, the better you’ll feel, and the more you will want to practice.

It is helpful to have a pair of yoga leggings, or shorts, and a t-shirt that’s not too baggy. No special footgear is required, you will be barefoot. It’s nice to bring a towel to class. Buy and bring your own yoga mat.

No. We work on many levels including the body, the breath, the mind, and the spirit in every class. You will find yourself becoming more flexible and strong as you continue to practice yoga.

Talk to the instructor about any existing physical conditions and concerns you have about them. Yoga benefits many people with chronic pain by helping the body regain its balance between strength and flexibility, movement, and awareness. If you are under a doctor’s care for an acute situation, please be sure to discuss taking yoga classes with him or her.

General Yoga Questions

Yoga is a Sanskrit word that means “to yoke” or “to unite”. As a practice, it is a scientific system for achieving total health, mental, and spiritual well-being. Yoga is a means to unite the body, mind, and spirit. In the United States, the term yoga is often used to mean the postures, or the physical part of yoga; however, these poses, or asana, are only one of the eight “limbs” of yoga.

Om is a mantra, or vibration, that is traditionally chanted at the beginning and end of yoga sessions. It is said to be the sound of the universe. Chanting “Om” takes us for a ride through our breath, our awareness, and our physical energy. We begin to sense a bigger connection that is at once uplifting and soothing.

Yoga is not a religion. It is a philosophy that began in India an estimated 5,000 years ago. The father of classical ashtanga yoga, the eight-limbed path, is said to be Patanjali, who wrote the Yoga Sutra. These scriptures provide a framework for spiritual growth and mastery over the physical and mental body. Yoga sometimes interweaves other philosophies such as Hinduism or Buddhism, but it is not necessary to study those paths in order to practice or study yoga.
