Yoga is for all body types, ages, genders, and races. Our classes offer step-by-step guidance with hands-on assistance when needed (and with your consent). Modifications are available for each pose to accommodate each individual yogi. One does not need to be thin, fit, or flexible to practice yoga. It is through maintaining a committed practice over time that you will gain strength, flexibility, and a better sense of self.
Yoga is the practice of self-inquiry, including the physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and spiritual aspects of life. There are many different styles of yoga, and the key is to find the style which best suits your personal needs in the present moment. If you try a class which did not go well for you, other styles of yoga, from gentle to more aerobically intense, may be right for you.
Fitness equipment is provided. Please bring a yoga mat, 2 blocks, a strap, and a yoga blanket.
