- Let your teacher know of any injuries or concerns you have at the beginning of class
- We practice yoga in bare feet; leave your shoes in the cubbies outside the studio
- Please print your name legibly on our sign in sheet each time you come in
- Turn off all cell phones and leave your bags in the cubbies or front office to free your mind
- If you arrive late to class please wait until beginning meditation is over to enter
- Shh… savasana. It's the most important part of the practice; yoga works on the nervous system and we need time to rest and integrate it. Don't skip it!
- Please refrain from wearing perfume, some students and teachers are sensitive to fragrance
- If you need to leave early please inform the teacher at the beginning of class and practice your own savasana before you exit
- And most important of all, have fun! Move at your own level, it is a non-competitive practice. If you allow yourself to build your strength and flexibility slowly it will serve you for the rest of your life!
What is Yoga?
The word yoga means “union” in Sanskrit. Yoga is a scientific system of physical & mental practices. Originating in India thousands of years ago, its ultimate purpose is to assist us in achieving our highest potential. The root belief of yoga is that the body and breath are connected with the mind. In our everyday lives, stress, tension, and the thoughts running through our minds cause the body to tighten up.
A tight body is an uncomfortable body and years of tension in the body can manifest into many physical ailments and diseases. In yoga we utilize the breath to heighten our focus with our connection, “union”, of mind and body while moving through poses (asanas) which loosen and release areas of tension.

Basics and Gentle Classes
Our Basics classes focus is on foundational poses. A strong practice appropriate for all levels who have some yoga experience. Students with minor injuries or physical limitations please ensure you talk to the teacher before class
Our Gentle Yoga classes are great for beginners, pregnant students or those recovering from injury. We do not interpret gentle as “slow-paced” or “easy” yoga but rather a practice that helps build strength and flexibility, while using the support of the wall, chairs or other props. Using less weight bearing positions enhances stability, integrity of joints and promotes confidence.
