“Is Yoga for me?”
Definitely, yes! Yoga is for any person at any age. Yoga is for anyone who is open and willing to experience it and learn its ways and ideas. One of the beauties of yoga is that you don’t have to wait to start practicing, and that you don’t need special equipment, clothing or gear to practice. It requires only your will to have a healthier and happier life.
Yoga enhances your strength, energy, vitality, flexibility and levels of endurance. Accordingly, your body and mind start to become more balanced until, eventually, you find it takes much less energy to move through the day.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Know What Class Level Is Appropriate For Me?
There are classes offered for all levels of students in various traditions. Brand new students should start with beginner classes. My advice is to try several yoga styles and instructors, until you find what best fits you wherever you are in your journey. Later on with a regular practice, you come to realize that you are your best yoga instructor.
Can Beginners Attend?
Please inform the instructor before class begins if you are just starting out so that he/she can offer you suggestions on how to modify your practice to suit your level. If you would like more specifics on class styles and teachers, feel free to contact the studio/instructor to speak to someone directly.
How Should I Prepare For Class And What Should I Bring?
Rushing to class is not recommended. Please arrive 15-20 minutes prior to class, so you can set yourself quietly in the room before class starts. Is best to practice asanas (postures) on an empty stomach, so not eating for about two hours before class is a good idea. It is recommended to wear comfortable clothes to classes. Mats and other props such as blocks, straps, blankets, and meditation cushions can be either provided my the studio/instructor, or you can bring your own. You may want to bring a small towel if you tend to perspire, and of course, drink enough water to stay hydrated.
