Beginners Yoga is recommended for anyone new to yoga or who practiced a long time ago. Learn the shapes, postures, breath work, and rhythm in a relaxed and non-competitive environment. These 60-minute classes are paced to give students the time they need to absorb information and build each element on its own and as part of a sequence. Students are encouraged to use tools (bricks, straps, etc.) to facilitate movement. Using a tool does not make anyone less “good” at yoga. In fact, it means you are listening to what your body needs.
Each series runs 8 weeks long to provide a progression of learning and practice. It is absolutely okay to sign up for more than one series if you want to practice more than once a week. I would recommend no more than twice a week if you are new to exercise. It’s better to start slow and build up then go too strenuously out of the gate.
Note: If you absolutely cannot sit on the ground or lay down, it may be best to wait until Chair Yoga is offered in 2019. If you can get down on the ground easily enough, but need help getting up – let’s discuss. I have to prop myself up when getting off the ground, too, so we can probably make it work.
Need to skip a class? No problem. I have accounted for space in all the Beginners Yoga Classes so that you can make up the class in another series on a different day of the week. (Or we can meet up separately, we can discuss that.) We all have, understandably, busy lives.
Pre-registration is required on a first-come, first-serve. Even though the classes are free for December and most of January, please let’s respect other students and avoid no-shows. If you change your mind and decide to withdraw or change the date of your class, please let me know.

Mats and equipment are provided but if you’d like to bring your own, you’re more than welcome.
Note: For those students who can’t make any of these dates or are currently out of the country, don’t fret – Beginner’s Classes will be offered ongoing. You’ll have lots of opportunity when you get home.
