With regular practice, you will notice your body getting stronger and more flexible; you will feel more grounded and have better posture. On a mental level you will notice improved focus, the ability to stay calm and maintain relaxed breathing.
It is a misunderstanding that you must be flexible or strong to do yoga. 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 stronger as you continue to practice yoga.
Bring water to stay hydrated, a yoga mat if you have one and a towel. We have mats available for rent if you do not have one. You may want to purchase your own mat for reasons of personal hygiene and regularity of practice.
Athletic clothing where the instructor can have a good idea of your body alignment, and at the same time clothes that are comfortable, fast drying and do not restrict your movement.
Yoga can be very beneficial during pregnancy, but make sure to let your instructor know you are pregnant. Make sure to avoid twisting, inversions, pranayama, any abdominal strengthening pose and lying on your belly. Remember, balancing poses may get tougher as you progress in your pregnancy so use the wall or blocks to keep yourself balanced and stay in the pose longer. Make sure to drink plenty of water and take bathroom breaks whenever needed.
About 90-95 degrees, it may vary depending on how many students are in the class and what the temperature is outside.
We have a shower, water, 2 bathrooms and easy parking.
We’d hate to see you go, but we understand. Please find your instructor before or after class or simply give us a call.
- If you’re practicing yoga at home without a teacher you might wonder if you’re doing the poses properly at first. It’s good to bear in mind from the beginning that our bodies and bone structures are all very different so there isn’t just one ‘right’ way to do a pose. It’s about finding out what works for our own bodies.
- Developing this body awareness takes practice so follow beginners’ yoga classes at first for more in-depth extra instructions and variations offered. It’s always a good idea to go to a teacher in person as well as online yoga if you can.
- The main thing to know is that yoga is not meant to hurt – that goes for whether you’re at practicing yoga at home on your own or in a class with a teacher. You will probably experience different sensations than you’re used to, and you may feel your muscles working, but if you feel any type of “warning” pain, such as sharpness or pinching, listen to your body and come slowly out of the pose.
