These classes will provide fundamental alignment principles of yoga postures and breathing techniques that will help move you towards basic flow and into deeper levels of Yoga. We recommend trying different classes and teachers to find what best suits you. Please inform your teacher about injuries or conditions which might affect your practice so that they can help guide you towards appropriate modifications or levels of class. If you must leave early inform your teacher before class and allow 5 minutes of relaxing before departing quietly. The studio is equipped with yoga mats and props needed for your practice. (mats, bolsters, blocks, straps, etc.). We do encourage you to buy your own mat. After your first class there is a charge of $1 mat rental fee.
