Fun. Community. Personal Attention.
We intentionally chose this space because we wanted a single room yoga studio. This allows each person entering to receive personal attention and guidance and provides a sense of community between our students and teachers. You are not just another person coming to a yoga class. We honor each unique energy that walks into our door. You can expect to receive personalized attention and care by each instructor.
The most common question that we get is: “I am new to yoga and I’m nervous! Are there any classes for beginners?”
We love hearing this question because we want to share yoga with as many people as possible. Therefore, we have created a schedule in which every single class is accessible for beginners!
Already on your yoga journey? Wonderful! We invite you to any class on the schedule as well!
In every class, we provide options for beginners and experienced yogi’s. This allows each student to focus on his or her mat as every person in the room will look different in their practice. Our goal is to properly teach you alignment in the poses that are right for your body and for you to just be open to trying!
Beyond the physical practice on our mats, we hope that you will find a community here.
Is yoga what I see on Instagram?
“I’m not flexible so there’s no way I can do yoga.”
“I’m out of shape so I couldn’t make it through a class.”
“I am intimidated. I don’t feel like I will belong.”
Can you relate with any of these? Would it surprise you that you are not alone?
In fact, 72% of people have thought about trying yoga but haven’t yet
(survey by Yoga Alliance). Our belief is that this is tied to the “monkey mind”; a term used to describe our unsettled, restless, easily fooled from reality minds. This is where we create a false world with our thoughts, not seeing reality for what it is. The reality is that you are capable. I challenge you to not let fear hold you back, from anything but especially not this practice.
At our studio, you will find a safe space. We practice non-judgement, respecting ourselves and others, loving our bodies and believing in our inner and outer beauty. Each individual walks in with uniqueness, possessing different strengths and weaknesses than those sitting next to you, which is a beautiful thing. We celebrate our differences!
What does this mean for you? It defines yoga. It means that yoga is for you. Give it a try.
What class should I take if I have never tried yoga or have only been a couple of times?
Beginner Flow, Ashtanga for Beginners and Stretch & Restore are designed with beginner’s in mind. In addition, we are currently offering the ‘New Moon Series’. This is a workshop that is a longer in length and are even more interactive than our other classes. We will show and guide you through the basics! You are welcome to attend a mixture of these classes and the series to see which is best fit for you! This workshop is free for members but is an additional fee to drop in for non-members.
What should I bring with me?
A mat, water bottle, small hand towel and large towel if you tend to work up a sweat easily or are taking a Sun (heated) class (if your mat gets a little sweaty and you start to slip, you can place a towel down over the mat to help).
I don’t own a mat. Do you have one I can borrow?
Absolutely! We offer a mat to use for your very first class with us! Thereafter, mat rentals are $1 per class. Check out our boutique for mats available for purchase!
Do I wear socks?
Yoga is typically practiced barefoot in order to help with grip and alignment. We suggest that you do but we want you to be comfortable. If you are practicing in socks, consider purchasing a pair of grippy yoga socks.
I am interested in taking a Sun class (heated/warm). Is there anything I need to know? *We will be adding Sun classes to the schedule based on popular demand. There are not any on the schedule currently*
We suggest not eating anything at least two hour prior to class. Drink 1 – 2 cups of water before class (not too much as you don’t want a full belly), sip water during class and drink plenty of water after. Bring a large and small towel.
We require that you have completed our New Moon Series Program or have prior yoga experience before attending a Sun Class.
Where do I park?
Enter the parking garage and follow the Orange Signs to Building 101. It’s the last building in the parking lot. There are elevators that bring you directly up to the studio’s interior entrance.
Please be aware of signage. Street parking on Mill Street is 15 minutes only. There is additional 2 hour parking on Town Street as well as a public parking lot on High Street.
Plenty of parking but if there is an event going on, space may be limited so be sure to show up early for class. Doors lock when class starts and students will not be let in late.
Is religion involved in yoga?
If you are wondering this, you are not alone. The answer is simple: Yoga is a philosophy; not a religion.
It is important that each person entering the space feels safe and is able to devote their practice in any way that they see fit. At our studio, you will not find religious-based teachings but rather a space that allows you to practice balance: physically, mentally and spiritually.
Currently New Moon Workshop, Ashtanga for Beginners and Slow Flow Classes are classified as Beginner Flows!
Class sequence is designed for those who are just entering this practice and want to learn the basics; no previous experience is required. Class instruction will focus on proper alignment, proper breathing techniques and the felt sense in each pose. Perfect for new beginners or experienced yogis looking for an alignment refresher.
Anytime you see a New Moon, this signifies classes that are appropriate for beginners!
More specifically, this is a moderately paced vinyasa flow. While the focus is still on proper alignment, instruction is not as intensive as with the Beginner class; however modifications are given in order to allow all levels to attend class.
Anytime you see a Half Moon, this signifies classes that are appropriate for Level 1 and beyond!
Just as the moon repeats it phases, Ashtanga yoga follows a set sequence of asanas (poses). This is a great place to Beginners to start their practice as modifications are provided for all levels. Consistent attendance is encouraged, as is allowing for expansion into poses without relying on props; however, blocks, straps, and blankets are available. This is a led class; it is not in the traditional Mysore style. Ashtanga emphasizes discipline, both in attendance, in the breath and in the asana.
Anytime you see the entire Moon Phase, this signifies that Ashtanga is the style being taught!
This class is appropriate for beginners and beyond; a true all-levels class. It is important to find balance in your yoga practice and you will find that this cooling practice, opposite of a yang practice such as Power Flow and Ashtanga, provides the ultimate balance. Poses are held for longer periods of time and props are incorporated to make sure that you appropriately relax into each pose. The teacher provides hands-on assistance to ensure comfort. You will not only see results in the way your body will feel but this class is a great way to reduce anxiety and stress. Try it one time and we bet that you will fall in love!
Anytime you see a Sunset, this signifies classes that are yin and restorative!
During this time on the schedule, our doors are open for our members to come in and practice in an open studio setting. Students can practice any style that they would prefer; vinyasa, ashtanga, yin, restorative, meditation and more. One to two instructors will be present for adjustments, and/or help into poses upon request, however this is not a led or private class. The instructor is there for reference but this is meant for solo mat time. This is included in the package for our unlimited members only; members with class passes and drop-ins are welcome to pay drop-in rates.
We are currently featuring our New Moon Series; a weekly classroom style workshop where we will break down everything you need to know. Students are encouraged to ask questions and interact, allowing them to graduate from the program more confident to attend regular scheduled classes.
Provides in depth instruction into basic yoga poses focusing on the Principles of Alignment, in addition to yoga philosophy overview. Focus will be on the fundamentals of entering and exiting poses safely, as well as learning both the English and Sanskrit names of fundamental poses. This workshop is a great addition to taking Slow Flows, Ashtanga and Stretch & Release; a combination of these classes will allow students to gradually build confidence and a strong basis for their practice.
Currently on the schedule Monday’s from 6 – 7:15p.
Check back often as we will introduce other series
throughout the year!
