Are you new to yoga? New to this studio? Here are some suggestions to make sure you pick the class right for you! 1) Bring a water bottle to the studio. The studio is heated. 2) Bring a mat. If you don't have one, we have a few extras for students to borrow.
What type of class are you looking for?
If you want something slower... We suggest the Yin/Restorative Yoga class (Wednesdays from 7-8pm), or Donation Morning Yoga (Saturdays from 9:40-10:40a, and Sundays from 9:45-10:45am). Our Yin/Restorative classes have the least amount of postures. Students will stay in these postures for longer periods, allowing the muscles the time to stretch. These classes are heated between 80-90 degrees. The Donation Morning Yoga classes are a combination of gentle flow and stretches to wake up your body and mind. Our Slow Flow Yoga (Fridays from 7:00-8:00pm) moves more than the other classes above, but still gives you the chance to take time for yourself, stretch, and breathe.
If you want something faster paced and/or more challenging... We suggest the Donation YinYasa Yoga class (Saturdays from 11am-12pm), Donation Hot Yoga (Sundays from 11am-12pm), or our Hot Yoga classes (Thursdays from 5:45-6:45pm). The Saturday Donation YinYasa Yoga (11am) class is heated around 80-90 degrees, and alternates between holding yin postures, and vinyasa flow to create internal heat/raise the heart rate. The Sunday Donation Hot Yoga (11am) class is heated to around 90-95. This class is a high intensity class with a lot of movement and some holding postures. The Thursday Hot Yoga class (5:45pm) is heated around 90-95 degrees, and is a combination of holding postures (Hatha and Yin), and flow (Vinyasa). These classes begin with low lighting and sometimes the lights are turned off for part of the class (so that you can focus on the postures and yourself without having the distractions of your sight).
If you want something unlike anything you've done before... We offer a Suspension-Extension Coyopa Yoga class. This unique class uses straps similar to TRX to get into yoga postures. This class is challenging, but works muscles that other yoga classes do not always get to. It can be easier to balance and hold certain postures that are difficult in regular yoga because of the straps. However, it also works on the tighter and weaker muscles first. This class is a combination of holding postures and vinyasa flow with the straps. Your first several classes, you will probably be sore, but if you keep coming back, you will see great results! This class is taught on Mondays (5:45-6:45pm). The studio is heated to around 90-95 degrees.
