Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What should I bring to my first yoga class?
A: Dress comfortably, wear clothing like yoga pants, shorts, and a t-shirt or tank top. We will provide a mat, but you are welcome to use your own. Some practitioners prefer to have a towel. You may be a little sweaty after class, so bring a change of clothes. Also, a bottle of water for during class or to hydrate afterwards.

Q: What if I am old, out of shape or inflexible?
A: Everyone feels challenged in a yoga class and all classes are designed for students to learn how to best use and listen to their body. You are never too old, too out of shape or too inflexible to do yoga. No matter how experienced, every student is encouraged to take breaks and/or make modifications as necessary. Please note: none of our instructors are trained medical professionals, please consult your physician if you are concerned about any health issues and let your instructor know so we can safely support your practice.
