Registering for yoga classes online does not reserve a space in class. Please arrive 15 minutes before class starts, especially for our busier classes, to ensure your space in class. Pre-registering online will speed up the sign-in process, and will assist you in planning your yoga-schedule. For now, however, our yoga-classes are filled first-come-first-served.
The word yoga, from the Sanskrit word yuj, means “to yoke or bind” and is often interpreted as “union“ or a method of discipline. A man who practices yoga is called a yogi, a female practitioner, a yogini.
Yoga can help you maintain and lose weight. Yoga reduces the cortisol or stress hormone levels as well as burns calories and reduces stress. It also encourages healthy eating habits and provides an enhanced sense of well being and self esteem, which are significant factors in weight control.
Yes! You are a perfect candidate for yoga. Many people think they need to be flexible to begin yoga, but that’s like thinking you need to be able to play tennis to take tennis lessons. Come as you are and you will find that yoga practice will help you become more flexible.
Yes. But you determine the intensity in each pose. No matter what your age or experience level, this yoga will take you to your edge…and pull more out of you than you ever thought possible.
If possible, start with two or three times per week minimum. Don’t let time constraint or unrealistic goals be an obstacle…do what you can and don’t worry about it. You’ll likely find that after a while, your desire to practice will expand naturally and you’ll end up doing more and more.
Unlike stretching or fitness, yoga is more than just physical postures. Connecting the mind, body, and breath helps us to direct our attention inward. Through this process of inward attention, we learn to recognize our habitual thought patterns without labeling them, judging them, or trying to change them. We become more aware of our experiences from moment to moment.
This is not unusual. Practicing yoga in a heated room reveals to us our present condition, and inspires us to take much better care of ourselves. In the heated yoga room, your body needs an adequate fund of water to allow perspiration to release heat from the body as you practice. We estimate you need another 64-80 ounces sometime during the day to allow for your 90 minutes in the room. Once you are drinking enough water your body will tolerate the heat better and you will actually start to enjoy the heat.
