Never practiced yoga before? Or perhaps you took a yoga class a long time ago, and you’d like to try it again? Maybe you want to try something new or a friend, family member or your doctor recommended it.
Whatever the reason, I’m so glad you’re willing to try yoga. You may have heard yoga is great for increasing flexibility, helping with depression, injuries, and calming your mind. But you may be thinking: “Yikes, I don’t know anything about this yoga thing. I can’t even touch my toes.”
When I first tried yoga, I was stiff. I couldn’t follow what the teacher was doing, and I couldn’t keep up with everyone. I found out that the yoga instructor (at the gym) had only completed a one-weekend fitness course on how to teach yoga.
I went to a yoga studio, and I became addicted. I felt calmer as soon as I walked into the studio. The highly trained instructor focused on alignment and safety and gave me modifications for my body.
Here’s what we’ve created for you…

Still have Questions?
Sometimes the most intimidating part is arriving at the studio and not knowing what to wear, what to bring, where to go or what to expect.
Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. The most important part of doing a yoga practice is that you bring yourself 😉
