You will want to wear comfortable loose fitting clothing, bring a Yoga mat, if your feet tend to be cold you might bring some socks as the studio is a no shoe zone, and if wanted a bottle of water. Please arrive a little early to class as we have a waiver for you to sign. This also allows us to give you a brief tour of our space. Doors open for class 15 minutes prior to the start of class. Each Class ranges between 60 - 75 minutes includes a gentle warm- up as we expand our breathe and get our body ready to receive movement.
What is Yoga?
The physical movements and postures, plus breathing techniques. This is what most people associate with Yoga practice. Yoga probably arrived in the United States in the late 1800s, but it did not become widely known until the 1960s, as part of the youth culture’s growing interest in anything Eastern. As more became known about the beneficial effects of Yoga, it gained acceptance and respect as a valuable method for helping in the management of stress and improving health and well-being. Many physicians now recommend Yoga practice to patients at risk for heart disease, as well as those with back pain, arthritis, depression, and other chronic conditions.
