- I have never taken a yoga class before. Are classes open to beginner students?
Yes. Know that for the first 1-5 classes you may feel lost or confused but that is normal for the learning process. With practice and time your mind and body will acclimate too work together and move more efficiently. Be patient with yourself and trust our teachers to guide you. We have specific beginner classes in Belly dance and Yoga to help you jump in as a newbie.
- What are the differences among all of the yoga classes offered?
All our classes at the studio are considered Vinyasa style, which means that poses flow together in sequences and sun salutations set the rhythm for class. All classes contain some level of breath work, focus and meditation, chanting and relaxation. Gentle Yoga- There are not standing poses in this class. One will still work hard while being nice to the joints. Seated, kneeling, lying down and modified inversion poses are practiced. Yoga for tight muscles- This class warms up of the floor and throughout class focuses on opening the shoulders and hips using props, modifications and the barre. Full sun salutations aren’t done. Vinyasa- We use the sun salutations to create a starting point to experiment with the poses learning new variations that explore the abilities both the mind and body. Ashtanga- Begins with sun salutations and moves through a set sequence of poses that challenge the mind and body gaining in both strength and flexibility in order to create change.
