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. I started to notice an improvement in my life – my outlook on life and how I handled stress.

Here’s what we’ve created for you…

Why Our Students Love the Foundations of Yoga Series

After a recent serious health scare, I realized that I had to take a more proactive approach to my health. The knowledgeable and caring teachers showed me how to adapt each of the poses to my body, so I experience the essence of the pose while staying out of pain. Since taking the Foundations of Yoga Program, I am stronger, I’ve lost weight, my balance has improved, and my blood pressure is so low that my doctor is talking about taking me off medication!

I acquired a new attitude towards my body, mind, spirit and goals. I am grateful to have been introduced to Yoga through the Foundations program, and I think it is the one pre-requisite that everyone should take. I find myself mindful throughout my classes of what I learned from Foundations including my Teachers’ philosophies and the enthusiasm they imparted.
Roseanne R
I came to the Foundations of Yoga program to learn new tools to help me manage stress, deal with anxiety, and reduce the pain I was experiencing in my body. Not only did I find amazing and effective tools and solutions, but I also made many new friends in this supportive, warm, and nurturing environment. Learning to breathe again was a major revelation!
Samantha T
I came to Yoga in my fifties. Like most people of a certain age I have some injuries, so learning the correct way to keep myself well aligned and therefore safe was very important to me. I loved the videos and handouts after each week’s class. Also, for me, learning the basics of a “flow” has really helped me to take advantage of classes in the Fire Room.
Ann N (Ann later went on to do our Yoga Teacher Training)
I wanted to learn proper alignment. I was tired of looking around the class trying to copy people when everyone I looked at was doing the pose a little differently. I am so glad I joined the program, because - WOW! Every pose has little secrets, and when done properly, you feel amazing. I now have the confidence to attend other classes. The Foundations of Yoga is a lifetime gift I have given to my body!
