Beginner Level Classes & Information
Our focus is stress-reduction. Our approach to yoga is rooted in compassion for healing the body-mind connection. We offer physical yoga (asana) in a way that welcomes anyone new to yoga. Some classes will be more challenging than others yet, it’s offered only as an option. The best class to begin is the class that you can come to. Will it be challenging? Yes. We will support you and we are not an elitist yoga studio of highly advanced stretchy bodies. Our interest is in relieving everyday build-up of toxins and tension.
Let us know you’re new to yoga when you arrive.
Take it easy your first few classes and skip the level two options.
The “level two” postures: when a pose is offered that you don’t think you’re ready for, don’t do it. The posture will last a minute or two while you slowly build the strength and courage to try it. Each class is going to have a posture that a beginner may not be ready for (headstand or something similar). Listen for the teachers instructions on modifications and options.
Bring a mat, towel, and water. We have mats to borrow, small hand towels and we have filtered water–just bring a bottle.
Flow & Relax
An inviting class for all-levels of practitioners. A skilled and well crafted balance or blend of energizing and restorative postures. Great for mid-week fatigue. Flow is a flowing sequence of yoga poses that gives your body continuous movement, usually in the beginning of a practice. The class is challenging and strong with an equal mix of gentle and restorative at the end.
