We Help You Get Started with Confidence

Yoga can be an intimidating practice for those who are new to the ancient form of exercise. There are hundreds of poses that require you to contort your body into positions that, outside of a yoga studio, you may never be tempted to try or expect to find yourself in. At YA, we are sensitive to the anxiety that may surround new students and make every effort to help you become a confident yogi. Practicing yoga is a great way to develop a healthy lifestyle. All it takes to embark on your journey is sign up for a class at YA.

Yoga is also an incredibly inclusive practice. We modify the yoga poses we teach at YA to accommodate the needs of absolutely any individual, including those who are fit, those who are overweight and those who struggle with disabilities. Of course, before you can become proficient in yoga you have to learn how to get started.

Discover Yoga's Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Benefits

The word “yoga” means “union” and refers to the spiritual union between the mind and the body. By controlling the breath and holding the body in steady poses or “asanas”, yoga creates harmony within the body. Asanas are specifically designed to sculpt the body, release muscular tension, and tone internal organs. By linking breath with movement, yoga strengthens the mind-body connection. Regular participants benefit from less stress and anxiety, a centered mind, and an enhanced sense of well being. Health benefits include lower blood pressure, increased strength and flexibility, better stress management, and long-term weight loss. A consistent yoga practice will manifest mindfulness and presence for a healthier lifestyle.

All skill levels are welcome. If you are new to yoga, this is a great place to begin your practice. Bring your mat, an open mind, and a willingness to discover new possibilities. We recommend wearing athletic clothing that allows you to move comfortably. Our experienced instructors provide assists to support your practice and help you move freely into the full expression of each pose. You are welcome to try any class at YOGActive. Please be aware that the pacing may be a bit faster in an advanced-levels class and our instructors do not always teach modifications. We encourage you to do as much as you feel comfortable doing and know that you can take child’s pose at any time.
