Help! I'm new to your studio and/or to yoga!
Below is a list of FAQ's that we hope you find helpful. If you have any more questions, please feel free to send us a message!
I'm not flexible, can i do yoga?
We believe that yoga changes lives and bodies, no matter where you start from. Yoga is for the willing, not the flexible! Flexibility may be something that comes with your practice, but is not required for participation.
what do i wear to yoga?
Wear clothes you are comfortable in. Work out clothes are a great place to start, but not required. Just be sure you are comfortable stretching in them and they're not too baggy.
How Many Classes a week should i come to?
Yoga's benefits only increase with increased practice. We recommend you try to practice 2-3 times per week. But we understand that schedules can be prohibitive. Just know that the more you practice, the more benefits you'll reap!
How is Yoga different from stretching?
Yoga helps us connect the mind, body and spirit through physical poses (asana) as well as breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation (dhyana). We believe that yoga changes your whole person through these practices, not just lengthening your muscles!
Is yoga a religion?
Yoga is not a religion. Yoga began 5,000 years ago and draws inspiration from many philosophical perspectives including Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism. There is no need to surrender your religious beliefs in order to practice yoga.
Can I eat before yoga?
We recommend you eat a full meal 2-3 hours before class. If you eat any sooner, your body won't get the opportunity to digest your food and you may become uncomfortable as we twist, stretch and turn our bodies upside down. If you're afraid you'll be hungry, eat a light snack like nuts or yogurt.
