Yoga for Beginners

You won't become a yogi after just one day. Developing a yoga-centered lifestyle takes years, but that doesn't mean you can't benefit from yoga at just an introductory level. Yoga for beginners can help you to manage stress and get in shape.

At any intensity level, yoga delivers certain benefits, including benefits to your mental and physical health. Yoga can help you tone muscle and lose weight while encouraging great stress management and meditation.

Don't let your first yoga class intimidate you. To get started, all you need is:

  • A yoga mat

  • Comfortable clothes that allow you to move and flex freely

  • Water to stay hydrated

  • A positive attitude an open mind

When you take your first yoga class, you may not know all of the poses. There is no need to study before you see us for the first time in order to feel comfortable at the front of the class. If you're not ready to take center stage, just set up your mat in the middle or back of the room and keep an eye on others in the class. By watching fellow yogis, you can know what each of the poses are as you transition into them. Our helpful instructors will also assist you as needed.

Yoga is an inviting, meditational and even spiritual experience that can help you get in shape and tone muscle. Don't let yourself feel too intimidated by any preconceived notions about the practice. Just do your best. As an inclusive practice, you can rest assured that any class you find will be inviting and inclusive, helping you to feel as comfortable as possible.
