Class Information, Questions and Answers
1. Do I need to bring anything special to class?
All yoga props (blankets, blocks, etc.) are provided as are a number of Yoga mats for those who may not have a mat.
2. I’m not sure which of the the two classes I should try
The Wednesday class will be an active Vinyasa class, in which we ‘flow’ from one pose to another. It will have modifications and be suitable for all levels, however if you are newer to yoga or prefer a gentler class, you may to start with the Monday class.
Monday’s class will be taught at a slower pace and be geared towards beginners and those looking for specific assistance in improving the form of individual asanas (poses).
3. I’ve only done yoga at home or shorter classes at the gym.
A lot of people can be intimidated when they see a class goes longer than an hour. Most people are surprised to learn than 75 minute (and even 90 minute) classes usually aren’t harder than condensed one hour classes since they build in time to warm up the body and properly cool down and relax the body (and mind) at the end of class.
4. I’m not too flexible
Don’t worry, most people aren’t at first. That’s what the blocks, blankets and modifications are for. One of the benefits of yoga is becoming more flexible over time while enjoying yoga’s health benefits. Benefits which include toning and strengthening the body, reducing stress, increasing energy and improving balance and concentration.
