Most importantly, ask questions - teachers are there to help you - and HAVE FUN!
Congratulations on starting your yoga practice! We're excited to have you.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early so we can meet you and help you settle in. For security reasons, we lock our door when class begins, so please try to arrive early. One of us will give you a tour when you arrive, and show you the studio where you will be taking class.

Deciding which class is right for you depends on a few of things, but know that we accept all levels and all bodies in every class. If there is a class time that works for you, come try it out.
If you'd like to narrow down your class choices, start with a few questions - Do you feel like a good workout is in order, or are you in the mood for a gentle, mellow flow? Do you like heated or unheated? How does your body feel today?
You will sweat in class! Athletic clothing is recommended and we request that students wear tops and bottoms with modest coverage. Stretchy shorts/pants and a form fitting t-shirt or tank top are ideal for both men and women. We recommend avoiding cotton, as it becomes heavier when sweating.
If you're attending an unheated class, layers are a great idea so that you have options as your body warms up during class.
If you need to leave class, that is fine! Feel free to leave the room if you need to. However, if you are feeling over-heated or dizzy, for safety we recommend staying in the room and taking child's pose or laying down on your mat until you feel better. Return to class when you are ready.
If you know you will need to leave class early, please tell your instructor so that we can help you leave the class at an appropriate time.
