So you've finally surrendered to the siren call of yoga. Whether starting a practice is your new year resolution, or you've decided to incorporate yoga into your existing fitness regimen, or you're searching for something yoga may help you find, let me congratulate you on making the choice to try yoga. No matter what brings you to your first class, we're glad you've found your way here!
If you're totally new to yoga, you probably have a lot of questions. What do I wear, what should I bring, what class should I take? Let's cover some of the most asked questions here.
How do I sign up?
By far the easiest way to create an account, sign up for classes, and manage your schedule is through our MINDBODY app. Click here to download it and get started. Or if you're on a computer, go here and follow the steps to create an account.
Once you've created an account in the app or on the site, you'll need to purchase a pass. If you've never been to our studio, make sure to look for our New Student Specials. And then once you've done that, you can start booking classes! Again, we suggest using the app, but you can also view the schedule and book classes here.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing that allows for unrestricted movement. Clothing that's too baggy or too tight can often impede your ability to move freely and easily. For warmer classes, you may find breathable, lighter fabrics are more comfortable than cotton or other thick, heavy fabrics.
What should I bring?
Bring yourself and your curiosity. Those are the essentials. But you'll probably want some water, too. If you have your own mat and/or props, bring them with you. But if you don't, we have some you can borrow.
What class should I start out with?
If you're brand new to yoga, start with one of our Beginners classes. These classes go at a slower pace, and offer a lot of instruction and explanation. Or try a Hatha class. These classes also go a little slower, and they're a gentle, feel-good way to ease into a yoga practice. Or if you're comfortable with more active movement and are feeling a little adventurous, try Vinyasa Flow. These classes are a little faster-paced and offer less instruction, but as long as you don't have any major physical limitations, you can give it a shot! (You can view our full class schedule here.)
The beauty of yoga, though, is that absolutely anyone can do it, and great teachers (like ours) can offer accommodations for almost all levels in almost any of our classes.
